HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018: Top 10 Lessons I learned in 2017
Hello everyone! Happy new year 2018! Every year on December 31st, I sit down and write out a top 10 list of things I learned in my personal journey throughout the year, and I wanted to share this year’s lessons with you guys.
Here’s my top 10 list for 2017. 🙂
#1: You don’t ALWAYS have to be around people. Solitude can be very invigorating and liberating. You will ultimately come to terms with your deepest sense of self-identity and from that, you become invincible.
#2: Include MORE water and MORE fruit in your daily diet. Your body will always thank you. And get more sleep!
#3: Some people will give you the illusion of being happy and whatever motivation they provide you with, is secretly directed towards their own needs. 👀
#4: Have a SAVINGS ACCOUNT and have a percentage of your paycheck direct deposited into that account and FORGET IT. Make sure it isn’t linked to a checking account. That way, when emergencies come up, it won’t feel so much like an emergency as you have money to fall back on.
#5: Be careful what you blame yourself for. Other peoples’ behavior and actions is NOT “our fault” as often as we think. It’s a random coin toss…
#6: CUTOFF the fake friends, the high maintenance girlfriends/boyfriends, and anyone else who actively undermines your efforts.Toxicity is detrimental to your health.
#7: Take your passions and brainstorm them in such a way that you can make money from it. It is an amazing feeling.
#8: Forgive all of those who have done you wrong. Holding a grudge is more painful than the initial hurt that was done unto you in the first place.
#9: Every morning is a new challenge in life. Every morning when the sun rises, a gazelle has to outrun a lion. Every morning, the baby birds in the nest begin chirping and the mother bird has to go out and find worms for her babies fast enough to make it back in time before any harm is done to them. Stay motivated and keep pushing forward.
#10: You will hear many different voices every day of your life, but your inner voice is the most important. Always listen to it.
Bonus: Define your #Corevalues in life and STICK to it. Because no matter what happens, doing this gives you purpose in life and you’ll wake up every day knowing that you have PURPOSE. No matter how “monotonous” your life may seem in the moment. Everything else comes and goes. But your #corevalues are here to stay. It will never make you go broke and will never break your heart.
