Guys, can you believe it’s 2018? I mean 2017 while a giant dumpster fire did go by surprisingly quick for me. Today I’m going to be talking about 2018 goals and, what I want to start doing differently in my life.
I’m not a big believer in resolutions and making some arbitrary statements at the beginning of the year. However, I am someone who has goals for the road ahead of me. This year I’m trying to learn to set smaller more attainable goals so I don’t lose sight of those finales.
I read somewhere once that telling people your goals can often leave you satisfied enough that you don’t feel the need to actually complete them. I can see how that would be true. I’m the type of person who quite honestly runs on spite and the power to prove people wrong. I’ve had a lot of people underestimate and devalue me in my life and it has only made me feel that much more passionate about completing them.Marie Forleo even talks about the naysayers and it driving her to be successful with B-School. I think it’s important to take those people’s words and throw them on the big burning trash heap of negativity where they belong and that fuel you to get shit done.
Pushing Myself To Do Better
Every year I tell myself I am going to start this blog and it will work out. Since this is my second post obviously it has not. I keep trying though. I think that what happened is that I have gotten it in my head. So much so that I am doing this not for the right reasons. I’m trying to overdo it, or that I’m trying to do too much with it right off the bat. My first goal is to just STICK WITH IT.
I’ve wanted to have a blog for so long, I’ve started and deleted so many. There are lots of things I need to stick to this year. I think that’s my own personal shortcoming is that I can never stick to anything for over 2 years. I nearly dropped out of school to become a baker my second year into college. Luckily I forced myself to finish.
Working Toward a Tangible Goal
How many of you out there have goals but you have no idea how to get to them? Maybe you don’t even have any idea that you’re making progress toward them? Me too. I am a really ambitious person by nature. Often though I tell myself that I don’t have time, or that I’ll do it later. Procrastination in my life has been the enemy of progress.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve told my friends that I have yet to make something that has impressed me. Despite working on three fashion shows now I have yet to ever impress myself with anything I have made or done. I want to work to that goal of impressing myself and getting to where I want to be when I wanted to be there. In 6 months I still want to be posting regularly on this blog. I also want to have stuck with my current health and fitness routine.
For now, those two 2018 goals encompass everything that I need to work on in order to complete the large overarching goals of life. What are your 2018 goals? How do you think you can do better this year so you’re not ending it the same way every year ends, unimpressed and feeling demotivated?
