Over the past year I hit many speed bumps, there were accomplishments, failures, major changes and big decisions. The year was emotional, unpredictable and made me realize I needed to take charge of my life.
After I came to this realization, my mindset completely changed. I decided to make changes, take risks and go after the things I wanted in my life.
Do you ever sit back and feel as though you are watching your life stream by? Do you ever feel as though the people around you are driving your decisions, dictating your next moves while you just float on by?
This is not how we should be living our lives.
We need to take charge.
Discover what drives you.
What do you want in life?
Do you want to go on the vacation of your dreams, start a new hobby, crush that fitness goal you never thought you could, make a career change, go back to school?
It doesn’t matter what it is, what matters is that you go after it.
Roald Dahl said, “If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.”
We are all passionate about something. That something can be life altering, or it can be subtle, but it is something.
Once you discover what you are passionate about, set a plan, create action statements to get after it, and go for it. Don’t let anyone stop you. Anyone stopping you from accomplishing goals are not people you need in your life.
I discovered this past year that anything is possible. Not everything is easy, in fact most things that are really worth it are not easy. But, anything is possible if you are willing to work for it and willing to take risks.
If you are truly passionate about something, nothing will be able to stop you from getting it.
Find the people that will support you, guide you and inspire you to go after those “impossible” dreams that are so unbelievably possible.
Never settle. If that needs to be your first list of actions, then make it that!
Do not settle out of fear. Do not settle because someone said you can’t. Do not settle because it will be hard. NEVER, EVER SETTLE.
If you do, you will regret missing out on all the opportunities available to you, and you will miss out on many weeks, months possibly years of true happiness.
Always remember that going after your dreams is worth it, because you are worth living the life you desire. The first step to accomplishing this is you.
So go out there, make changes, take risks, meet new people, discover and accomplish.
Together we will live the life we always dreamed of and we will take it one step at a time.
Much love, XOXO
