It is that time of the year again when we make resolutions and promises about joining gym, losing weight, registering for a new course, finding a new job, making more money and the list goes on. Basically it’s the time when we sit back and decide to start all over and make new changes in our lives. Yes you guessed correctly it’s the beginning of a new year, happy 2019 folks! When you drive down the street in the morning you see a lot of people in new running shoes, huffing and puffing, really pushing themselves to try to stick to their resolutions.
I really want this year to be different, let us all work at wanting to see real change and progress in our lives. The main thing is to remember that everything starts in the mind, it starts with you! Each one of us needs the power of discipline in order to achieve personal goals. Now first things first, let’s start from the beginning.
One sure way to start would be to cancel all those resolutions, tear down that diary where you wrote down your resolutions and start with a plan then create your goals!! Remember whatever the goal is, that is where your investment should be. I am not talking about money but TIME. Invest your time wisely so that you can reap the results that you want to see. Remember the golden law of the universe, what you put in is what you get out. It is even there in the bible, you reap what you sow!
Let’s say that your goal is to lose weight for that beautiful outfit that you want to buy for your autumn graduation ceremony. You have to start now, visualize yourself in that outfit then go out there and invest your time in exercising and eating healthy. Get a partner or buddy who will help you in this journey. Put up pictures of your ideal weight, put up a picture of the outfit so that every morning you can remind yourself about your ultimate goal. Put your goal in front of you!! To achieve our goal we must apply discipline and consistency every day. Therefore investing time in making that goal become a reality becomes important. Remember nothing comes easy, you have to work hard in order to achieve your goal. No pain, no gain as Miles Davis once said “Time isn’t the main thing, it is the only thing”. Let’s all invest our time in pursuing our goals and not merely exist just to help other people achieve their own goals! Let’s wake up and invest our time wisely! And if we do, surely, time will treat us well.
