Do Things That You Can Be Proud Of

In today’s post, I would like to encourage you to do things that you can be proud of and to focus on that very pride that you want to feel whenever you want to do something.

Why focus on the pride? Pride is a great feeling and it is a feeling that can keep us going. The reason why I encourage you to focus on the pride is because there WILL be times when you will feel lazy to do something. There WILL be times when life will get in the way. The things that you may want to do may scare you. That’s just the way it is because we are human. However, if you do your best to focus on the pride part, this can encourage you to do things despite you not wanting to do them and despite things getting in the way.

Also, because it is the beginning of a new year, it’s easy to create new years resolution and not keep up with the things you have to do in order to accomplish your goals. It can be easy to be distracted, especially in today’s world. It becomes crucial to be focused for your own well-being and knowing that you want to have things to be proud of can push you further.

Do things that you can be proud of despite not feeling like it. Know that those moments do come so think of ways that you can overcome that feeling. For me, it is what I am recommending to you in today’s post- I remind myself of how proud I want to feel about myself.

Do things that you can be proud of despite life getting in the way. Ahh life, life sometimes does have its moments. Think about where do you want to be a month from now. Think about what you want to be able to say that you accomplished. If you have to, find an accountability partner. This can help you keep going even when things can get in the way. When my dad was very ill at the hospital, it was challenging for me to eat healthy because I was sad with all that was going on. It was the Sugar Buster program that helped me keep going even when I didn’t feel like eating right.

Do things that you can be proud of despite the fear. I can tell you from personal experience that the more you want out of life, the more fear you will feel and that’s because you are stepping into the unknown. Feel the fear and remind yourself that the fear you feel is also excitement masked in fear. Remember that fear is normal because you are stepping into the unknown.

It’s important to always do things that you can feel proud of and this can be big or small. It can be something like drinking more water if you hardly drink water to daring to do something that you have always dreamed to do. There is always a start to everything and challenges will arise along the way. However, for your overall well-being, it is important to learn from those challenges and grow. Nothing that ever happens has to go to waste. I encourage you that every day you work on doing something that you can be proud of and you’re more than welcome to share in this post what have you done that you are proud of. I look forward to hearing from you.

What Are Your Resolutions For This New Year?

Ahhhh how nice! Another new year. And with every new year we all have new year resolutions. It’s important to have resolutions for the new year because these are goals that we have in mind to accomplish and a goal is what keeps us moving forward and gives us something to look forward to.

Because some may tend to not accomplish their new year resolutions, I would like to challenge you to look at your new year resolutions in a different way.  Why am I challenging you to look at this in a different way? Because I’ve noticed that for some a new year resolution may seem as something perhaps too grand with no concrete steps to take in order to get to where one may want to go. Also, when one may think of a new year resolution, one may think that if it’s not accomplished or started in January, then perhaps it’s a resolution that one may just drop and forget about it. I would like to challenge you and rather than think of your new year resolutions, think of your goal for this January. By doing this, you are setting a goal to meet this month that will add up to what your goals are for this new year. Once that goal is met, then what is your goal for February and so on. This way your main goal gets broken down to smaller goals until it is something that you can do every day that will get you closer to whatever it is that you want.

Set that intention for that goal that you have. I already wrote about this one key element to getting the things you want out of life by setting the intention on a past post some months ago and I just can’t emphasize enough how important this is to any goal, no matter what goal you may have. From losing weight, to getting the job of your dreams, to having that relationship that you want, setting the intention is key.

Plan out your goals. I also wrote about the importance of planning on a past post because without proper planning, well, you will be setting yourself up for failure basically. Planning is what prepares you in the event of any possible setbacks. Of course, you can’t plan everything out in life but when it comes to goals, planning is crucial.

Another thing I have to add in here that I feel is very important when accomplishing your goals is do not wait to be motivated in order to keep going after your goals. I am one to say that when going after the things that you want in life, you are not always going to feel like doing what you know you have to do in order to reach your goals. For instance, when going to college, there are classes that are required to take, papers that have to be written in order for you to pass the class and you will not always feel like doing these papers but you do them anyways because you have a bigger picture in mind. If you wait until you’re motivated in order to reach your goals, you may find that you may never get yourself started. This is the danger of relying on feeling motivated to reach your goals.

By taking your resolutions for this year and breaking them down to smaller goals, setting the intention of reaching your goals, planning and having the determination to reach that goal so you are not relying on feeling motivated, you will reach those goals that you have for this year. Every goal is possible when taking these steps.
