Mindset 2020: 6 Beliefs That Will Make 2020 Epic
Imagine that it’s December 31st 2020.
An entire year has gone by and we are about to ring 2021. But first let's take a minute to reflect on how far you have come this year. 2020 was your year, you set goals and you crushed them! You finally stepped out of your own way and didn’t let fear dictate your choices. Don’t even get me started on how your income has grown!
It’s like you’re living a dream, all the things you’ve imagined for your life have become a reality. You are so grateful you took action at the beginning of the year and stayed accountable to your goals.
Now jump back to the present day.
Okay, real talk my friend! We are three weeks into 2020 and this reflection can be yours! You have the power to make all of these things a reality.
The choice is yours, move forward or stay where you are. I get you and I believe in you, now you just need to believe in yourself! But until you do I want you to borrow by belief. I have created a list of my top 6 beliefs that will help make 2020 epic!
1. The Buck Stops Here.
Anyday can be the first day of our new life. Anyday we can choose to speak to people just a little bit nicer. Be it as it may, here we are again. A new year and every year I feel myself telling myself, “this is the year that I am going to take control of my life. I am going to stick to my goals and really just be the source of my own happiness and my own destiny.
No more blaming outside sources for robbing my happiness will ever play a role in my life.” The buck is going to stop with me.
Because once you decide that you are the owner of your own destiny, that you are where you are because that is how you decided to be there, you procrastinate because you choose to procrastinate, you are unfocused because you choose to be unfocused, you lack proper time management because you choose to lack proper time management, only then can your life begin to change.
2. It’s Your Choice to Decide How You Spend Your Life.
You have twenty four hours in a day just like everyone else. And it is your choice whether you decide to spend it watching television, wasting time gossiping, or allowing other people to run you around. The buck stops here!
Before launching my first real business in 2010 (or what I consider my first business because I actually had customers and sales) I had spent years dreaming about starting a business.
I’ve tried it a couple of times. I dabbled in that; I dabbled in a little this and a little that only to fail. Or only to lack focus and give up. Lacking focus is definitely my kryptonite.
I would get an idea in my mind and become so gung-ho that I put all my time and energy into it.
As soon as it becomes old news, boring or too hard. I lose lack of focus and the experiment or the task is done. And then I’m sad because I think about the time and money wasted.
Have you ever felt that way?
3. No More.
I have dreams.
The only thing that is stopping me from achieving those dreams is my own will, my own ambition and my own lack of discipline.
But no more, no more.
So I am here today to speak to you to encourage you that if you have a dream, don’t listen to someone tell you that your dream cannot come true. Even if that someone is you
4. “You are in Control of Your Own Destiny.”
It is this direction and focus that has lit a fire under me that no matter what as long as I believe in myself, and my goals, and my dreams that I will push forward, and I will not allow life stresses to deter me or sit idle any longer. I must do this for my family; I must do this for me.
Whatever you want to do learn another language, gain weight, lose weight, bench press five hundred pounds, or get healthy, just do it. That’s another goal of mine. I want to get healthy. I want to exercise. I’m going to be honest I hate to exercise. I need to exercise and I'm not getting any younger.
You can do it. I can do it. We can do it. We could do it together. Let’s hold ourselves accountable for the entire year, not tomorrow, not next week, not next quarter...right now!
5. Your Next Year is Going to be Freakin’ EPIC!
Think about it.
If you want to make epic changes for the coming year, you need to start now. How is it to walk into this coming year with a business started versus starting a business?
Collect old magazines and go to the Dollar store in the art aisle and get stickers, glue, posters, and glitter because it’s time to create that vision board.
If you have a goal, then the buck is going to stop here with you today. Not next week.
I get it. You are busy, but we all are busy. I’m sure there is one-itty-bitty-5 minute-minor-detail you can do to move your goal into motion.
Maybe you’re not ready to plunge in there and start turning passion into profits, but if you’re ready to make this year epic what is the one five minute itty bitty thing you can do to move your business idea forward?
For example, it could be as simple as jotting down your skills, education, and passions in a journal.
6. Let’s Be Accountable.
