Get Ready for 2019
Can you believe it, we are almost at the end of another year. I took the time this weekend to identify all the goals I accomplished, and those still on my list. I found that through faith and perseverance, along with my passion for speaking, coaching and teaching, I could not be stopped. Today, if you are an experienced professional or new to the field, I want you to realize the impact of doing something you love. I want to encourage you to fall in love with your dreams, hold fast to what you love and create something with meaning and purpose. When you work a job you hate, your Sunday nights take on a whole new meaning, because you know what is coming in the morning. However, when you are engaged in something you love, you find that when it is time for you to rest, you are still energized and motivated.
Make a promise to yourself, to follow your dreams
Therefore, as we head towards the end of this year, make a decision to start where you are with your dreams. Sometimes we can become attached to our comfort zone and that keeps us from moving forward. Therefore, as a strategy, I want you to start where you are, and begin to identify the reasons why you should write your book, start a business or nonprofit, go back to school, start a ministry, learn a language or take piano lessons.
When you identify the reasons why you should start where you are, you will see they outweigh the reasons for staying in your comfort zone. Therefore, make a promise to yourself to identify something that you love and are passionate about, start where you are and step out of your comfort zone. If you do, 2019 can be your breakout year of success and fulfillment.
