Nothing changes until we change the way we think. There’s a popular saying that when you make a mistake once, it can be regarded as an error but when you keep repeating the same mistakes it is as a result of stupidity.
2016 is over, are you happy about how things went or you are still blaming others and giving excuses. Nothing happens to you without your consent. If you set goals and you achieved them, it is because you worked hard for it but it you couldn’t achieve it, it is also as a result of your thinking and lack of commitment.
If you want to go far in life, you need to take time to sit down, think, and see if you are making progress, still on the same spot or just moving around in circles. The results of your review will determine how good or bad you have done and you will know the areas that you need to tighten your belt.
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Don’t be limited by wrong beliefs, ideologies, thinking patterns, what people will say. Don’t be afraid to stand out. Let go of people and things that are not adding anything meaningful to your life, start attracting the right people by becoming the right person. It doesn’t matter how many times a man falls, what matters if he is able to stand up and continue the journey from where he stopped.
If you want to get different and better results then you need to re-strategize, you to re-navigate, you don’t need to change your goals but you can change your strategies. Don’t get so used to the normal way of doing things that you become stagnant. Grow!
Do things differently, DON’T BE AFRAID TO GO BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD to find out where you missed it. Don’t let anyone convince you that your goals are too big. Focus on what works. Many roads may lead to where you are going but don’t be so much in hurry to get there that you take the easiest route, Hard work pays.
Don’t give up on your goals until you have given it your all. Make your brain sweat until it becomes wonder to your world.
Create. Develop. Evolve.
