We all know that research shows that it takes 21 days to create a habit. From trying to incorporate new fitness habits or trying to stick to the latest eating plan… we’ve all been told the same thing “good habits create successful lives”. But the often overlooked part is that we don’t always have to make monumental changes in life to get the results we seek.
Time is not unlimited. Each of us is given a lifetime of time to experience, achieve, and create as much as we can. But the truth is that we often take this time for granted. We spend countless hours (and sometimes days) doing mindless activities like scrolling social media or binge-watching the latest shows… only to wake up each day feeling unfulfilled.
How many times have you thought that you’d rather wake up to the hustle and bustle of city life than the routine humdrum of suburban living? Or maybe it’s the opposite. When’s the last time you’ve wished that you could lay out in a hammock on your front porch instead of climbing the stairs of your apartment building? It may be time to give your ‘wishes’ a little more consideration.
We are officially into the first month of the near year. It’s a refreshing time of renewal of self. It’s when we explore what went right for us in the past 12 months as well as a time of reflection on what we wish we’d done differently.
Time is a deceitful resource. It’s one that feels endless but it isn’t. When you’re young, without any real responsibility, you have free time. Time… that allows you to balance school, friends, and personal development. As you mature, things change, life becomes busier, and most of us find it hard to balance our entrepreneurial pursuits and our personal goals.
January is just around the corner. It’s the time of year when we start to think about fresh starts, new beginnings, and goals we want to achieve. Most of us focus on health and fitness goals, relationship goals, and even travel goals, but now is the time to start looking at our finances.
Having big dreams and goals is essential to your personal growth. It’s the fuel that keeps you moving forward in life. When you have a goal, an ultimate destination, it’s so much easier to move in that direction. But having lofty goals can be both exciting and terrifying.
On one hand, you’re eager to get started, make changes, and start checking off milestones. But on the other, you may be fearful of failure and the hardships that can often accompany taking a leap of faith. Everything that happens next is based on your mindset.
