So. 2022. Really? I feel like I’ve lost the last year (probably 2 years) in a blur.
The end of a year or the beginning of a new year is often used as a time to reflect on the previous year.
Hmm… it hasn’t really been the greatest…anyway, moving on.
I have no idea what 2022 will be like – things are still pretty crazy and pretty uncertain at the moment but that doesn’t mean we can’t still try and make the most it. Knowing that yes, we will probably need to be flexible and adapt with the inevitable changes that will happen and that’s ok.
Everyone’s up for a new start at this time of year; new year resolutions sound familiar? Resolutions can be a great idea but remember any goals or resolutions we make need to be ours (not someone else’s); they should be about our journey and about what we want to achieve and why.
A lot of people give up on their goals because of their failure (or perceived failure) to meet them. This is not a good reason to quit, we only fail if we give up. We need to keep at it, even if our progress doesn’t quite match up to how we thought it would look; progress is progress. We need to treat ourselves as we would someone else. We would never say “yeah, just give up, you’re hopeless, there’s no point even trying” to a friend; why say it to ourselves?
I’ll leave you with some incredible quotes from Les Brown (motivational speaker and author) to get you thinking.
“You don’t have to be great to get started, but you have to get started to be great.”
“Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.”
“Forgive yourself for your faults and your mistakes and move on.”
“Your goals are the road maps that guide you and show you what is possible for your life.”
“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you will land among the stars.”
Aim high people, we owe it to ourselves.
BRING ON 2022!
