2019 provides all of us with the opportunity of a fresh start. It is an avenue to reflect and take stock of our decisions, choices and actions in the past year, as well as make new commitments to improve our well-being in this new year.
Below are 10 questions you need to give sincere answers to that will help you achieve amazing results in 2019.
- What lie am I telling myself? It is easy for us to give excuses for not getting results. What excuses have you been giving yourself in the past? Stop telling yourself that you are not good enough, smart enough or beautiful enough. You need to face the truth and the truth is that you are blessed and highly favoured, despite your current circumstances.
- What limitations am I imposing on my life? Is there any limit you have imposed on your income, lifestyle and expectations in life? As spiritual beings we have no limits except the ones we impose on ourselves. We can achieve anything, do anything, have anything and become anything we set our minds at. Believe in yourself. There is no limit to what you can achieve.
- What knowledge do I need to acquire and apply? Knowledge is the foundation of success and happiness. What new insights, awareness and clarity do you need to move to the next level in your career, business, relationship, health and happiness? Make a commitment to acquire new knowledge this year and, more importantly, take action or your new knowledge.
- What skills do I need to upgrade? Skill is the on-going application of knowledge. What present skill-set of yours do you need to work on to become world class? Do you need to improve your sales, marketing, negotiation, communication or interpersonal skill? Take action everyday to significantly improve your competencies.
- What attitude do I need to develop? To make 2019 amazing, you need to display the right attitude towards life at all times. Attitude is everything. Do you need to develop the attitude of time management, punctuality, discipline, patience, perseverance, determination or resilience? Highlight three key attitudes you need to develop in order to achieve your desired outcomes this year and start working on them on a daily basis.
- What are the three books I must read? Instead of reading dozens of books this year, can you just identify three books you will study meticulously? Digest all the principles and practices in these books and act on them. Readers are leaders. For you to influence people positively you need to be informed, updated and enlightened.
- Who are the top three people I must surround myself with? For you to achieve your goals and plans this year, you need to identify the top three people you need to surround yourself with. These 3 people must be leaders that will inspire, encourage and challenge you not to give up on your plans, despite the challenges that you will encounter during the pursuit of your goals in 2019.
- How can I raise my standard? How can you demand excellence from yourself? In what areas have you settled for less than your best in the past? Are you really giving your best in what you do? Are there ways you can raise your standard of living? You must decide in 2019 to give your best at all times and enjoy the best because you deserve only the best.
- How can I conquer my fears and doubts? To make 2019 one of the best years ever in your life you need to overcome your fears and doubts. You need to take massive action on your goals and be totally convinced that everything will work out in your best interest at the end of the day. The antidote to fear and doubt is action. Act, despite your fears or doubts this year.
- How can I be in charge of my own happiness? Happiness is your birthright. You need to take personal responsibility for how you feel and protect your happiness. Don’t allow people and circumstances prevent you from enjoying every moment of this year. You are in charge of your happiness. Take responsibility for it now.
