New Chapters can be exciting, scary, liberating and daunting all at the same time. You just do not know what you will be faced with and the unknown can turn us away from turning the page and entering into the new chapter. It is like the first time you are about to get on a roller coaster and all of a sudden something clicks and makes you ask yourself - 'Am I sure that I want to do this?'
Remind yourself of the first time you got behind the wheel to drive, I am sure you told yourself that it would be better to get out and walk. Even though you knew you were in safe hands with a driving instructor who had a fully functioning break, you still found yourself in an emotional whirlwind of fear, excitement and worry.
Stop the unnecessary worrying, you have got exactly what it takes to smash through your new year goals, you will be fine. Stop throwing yourself into a pit of endless negative thoughts, everyone feels the same when embarking on a new project.
You might not have the full answer to the equation that you are working on but that is ok, till this very day I can not remember how to solve an algebra question but somehow I managed to get through my GCSE's. What I am trying to say is, it is ok if you do not know the exact route map for your vision in 2018, go for it anyway, you will work out the answers along the way.
This is the beauty about life, that you do not need to have all the answers in order to take the first step, you only need to be bold enough to actually do something with the ideas that you have in your mind.
Give yourself some credit and just go for it, your best shot is all that is required in 2018.
Once you make a start and you find that the idea has not gone the way that you hoped for, then try again, if it continues to fail beyond your control then move on instead of making yourself sink into a black hole of regret and disappointment. It truly is not worth worrying about the things that you can not control. 2018 is the year of 'feel the fear and do it anyway'.
Now this part is mandatory, it is the part that they never told us when we were told that we are free to dream - your project, your ideas and your new ventures are YOURS to look after, stop expecting people to pour into you all the time. It is up to you to give yourself something new to look forward to, it is up to you to keep going, it is up to you to do the work required to bring YOUR vision to life.
The honest truth is that you will be celebrated once you are at the top but do not expect to receive the applause while you are still doing the ground work.
Fill yourself with the right energy to achieve all that you pray for in 2018. I wish you the absolute best in all your 2018 endeavours!
My Top Tip Faves:
I read this quote it said you are as great as your thoughts - note to self Great Thoughts Required
Start in order to be great Do not wait to be great before you start Build your confidence Find your voice Go in the mirror & tell yourself how amazing you are We are average of the 5 people we spend most of our time with Not every one comes along with you Even if you fail its ok...just keep going. Dont wait to make the decision, just do it!
