Have you started your New Year's resolutions yet? With these 14 personal goals, you will turn 2020 into YOUR year!
It doesn't matter how big goals you want to achieve, small, medium, big, the most important thing is to strive to achieve one goal after another, you don't jump from one goal to another, one day this, the next day another goal. There will be a whole mess and nothing will come true, because you won't even know what you actually want.
14 personal goals that can turn 2020 into your year
1. Be who you really are
You don't have time to live your life like someone else. All you can do is be who you are. You are the best. Do things that make you happy and give you energy. Being who you are is not always easy, it requires dedication to your values and dreams.
2. Choose yourself
Learn to first love, respect, consider, embrace - the person in the mirror - YOURSELF.
3. Take time for yourself
We often forget about ourselves. Do things that make you feel good. Take time to disconnect and consciously do things that calm or make you happy. Get out. Relax. Exercise. Read a book or watch a good movie with someone you love. It is important to find time for yourself. You deserve it.
4. Don't take things too personally
Don't deal with others, focus on what is important to YOU. You don't depend on what others say or think about you. You are the one who needs to love and appreciate yourself. Then others will perceive you as such a person.
5. Do something good
Do something good for a fellow human being, for someone who doesn't know you. Give a hug, a smile, give up a seat on the bus - lots of little things that warm your heart and theirs.
6. Never forget to think positively
Look for something positive in everything, find a piece of good in everything, even in impossible situations, it will be easier for you to take a step forward. This applies to a rainy day, a traffic jam on the highway, stress at work. Before discouragement, anger, despair grab you - let a slightly different Murphy's Law creep into your mind, say to yourself: "If something can go right, it will."
7. Overcome fear
Fear must not take control of your actions, dreams. YOU are and will always be the driver of your dreams to their destination, to their realization. The road will not always be straight, it will be full of bends and potholes, but because you are determined to reach your goal, you will overcome the obstacles more easily, pick yourself up, make a detour and continue on your way to your goal! And remember: "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." Lao Tzu
8. Make mistakes
Mistakes are a part of life, never make them for nothing because you wanted to make mistakes. We all make mistakes, but the point is to learn from them. They are a great experience and a good travel guide for the future, because you don't want to do them again.
9. You can only change yourself
Nobody else. Not the past. No one, everything depends on you and your view of situations.
10. Never stop learning
It's never too late for new things, achievements, challenges. No matter how much we already know, there is always someone somewhere who knows more.
11. Learn to say NO
Set boundaries and define where is the "line" where you say NO to someone and say YES to yourself. Where you don't let others impose their thoughts, ideas and needs on you, and where you can nod your head and say NO if you disagree with something.
12. Who is the winner: YOU or your thoughts?
Forgive the ego, especially the ego that tells you that you must always be right. You can lose a lot by doing this and gain only stress, anger, disappointment.
13. Are you doing what you love?
If you do what you truly enjoy and love, you will go any distance, pay any price, and overcome any obstacle along the way. Where there is a will there is a way.
Be grateful for everything that you have, that is around you - for life, for a beautiful day, for experiences, for a step, for the air that you breathe. Find at least 10 things in each day that you are grateful for. Write them down and list them day by day. At the end of the day, you have to recognize what you have instead of focusing on what you don't have. You must choose gratitude as your attitude to live a happier and better life. Trust yourself and life. Do NOT doubt yourself. Doubt kills goals.
