“Great Things in 2016” will be my theme for next year. I know it’s a little early to be talking about New Years’ Resolutions and such but I’m so excited about next year that I felt I should get a head start. Plus, you know I’m trying to be a better planner.
Thus far, 2015 has been a tremendous year – a year of self-discovery and stepping out of the comfort zone to pursue my “ideal life”. At times it has been scary and even discouraging, but I’ve never been clearer about my path. Despite the uncertainty, it has been a year of excitement and fulfillment… exactly what I’ve been seeking.
In this year, there have been many lessons learned like:
- Be clear on what you need to be content in life
- Don’t doubt yourself. You have been blessed with gifts and talents that are true to you. Understand how they should be used and operate in them.
- Quiet the voices in your head telling you that you’re not good enough. You are more than enough.
- Procrastination is of the devil.
- Having confidence is key to your success. If you don’t believe in what you’re doing, why would others?
- Change your perspective; find a way.
I know that 2016 will be even better than 2015 because I will continue to pursue my ideal life beyond my fears. I have been inspired by so many who are living their lives beyond their fear and it’s the life I will have.
It’s important to note that the message in this post is not one of those “money cometh to me” messages where I’m anticipating something to fall in my lap or a $100,000 check to be found in the mail. It’s about the action(s) of doing what I need to create the life I desire. I believe with faith, courage, discipline, and sacrifice, we are all capable of creating that life.
Here are my plans for 2016:
- Continue to grow “Becoming Tonya” blog
- Launch “Path to Becoming” life coaching services
- Host “Becoming” parties (you’ll learn more about this in early 2016)
- Write first eBook
- Be more organized
- Travel more including international destinations
This list could be considered a New Years’ Resolution list, which is dangerous because New Years’ Resolutions are usually a to-do list that doesn’t get done and for me that is not an option. These are my Great Things in 2016.
