I tried to take pictures that would match the topic, but sadly I didn’t have enough inspiration to get more than a few shots of the (now gone) snowy landscape in my area. Anyways, this topic is something I cannot stress enough and that I am passionate about. Let’s start….
Buying a new planner, writing down goals for the next year, booking a holiday … You are getting excited for the upcoming year and new chances to make 2018 the best year of your life yet. I get it, there is something so magical about the new year. You feel like you can close the last chapter of the year 2017 for good and start fresh and with a clean slate. All those projects that you wanted to start in 2017 but didn’t, now you feel like you have the opportunity and willpower to give it another shot. That is great! I hope you succeed in whatever project your have set your focus on. Let me ask you one question though.
Why do you wait until the next year to start your project and fulfil your dreams?
Unless you can literally only start your project next year (new job, new apartment, moving to a new city…) there is no reason to wait for the clock on New Year’s Eve to turn to midnight to get started.
I believe that we let so many opportunities pass us by just becausewe didn’t have the courage to get started right away. Something is holding us back or scaring us so much that we just put it off until the next year.
Let me ask you another question.
How can you put off your dreams, goals and projects? How can you put them on the waitlist?
If they are dear to your heart then you just don’t put them off so easily. So why do you still do it?
Remember my blogpost when I talked about a super cliché quote? Read more here. I know the following is not a real quote, but I’ll put it here anyway. Sounds super cliché too?
Take a quite moment and read it. Think about it.
Waiting for Friday to enjoy the week?
Waiting for summer to finally start working out?
Waiting all life for the right moment to actually live?
Your answer to all of these questions is no? Then why do you wait for the new year to fulfil your dreams?
Ok, I think you get what I want to say here. Now do yourself and me a favour and start.right.now!
Last year around this time, I made myself the promise not to wait for some magical day, event … to just do it. Just do the things I want to do. Just to do the things I was scared to do before. Just do those things and not let anything or anyone hold me back. And guess what? This promise made 2017 a really amazing year, which makes me excited for more!
Follow me and do the same! Make 2018 your best year yet! … and start today, on the 23rd of December 2017.
Tell me about your dreams and goals in the comments below.
I hope that I can post one more blogpost before the new year. I am back at work since Friday and it takes up all of my energy. Thinking about 2018 I get really excited. Like reaaaaaaallly excited. I have so much more to say and share with you. But for now….
Stay safe and be happy. Enjoy the holidays. Be yourself and do your thing.
UPDATE ON THE SECRET PROJECT.
Am I annoying you yet? Forgive me. You can relax now and enjoy the rest of December. The news will not be revealed before January. But that’s ok. I am still so stocked that this is happening. Some roads might be messy but somehow they let you end up where you are supposed to be.
