2016 is here, and it’s time for new resolutions, new goals, and new plans. You’ve decided that this is the year you’re going to get it right. As 2016 wears on, however, you may start wondering if you have what it takes to make the changes you need to make. Want to know whether or not you’ll be successful? Look for these 5 signs you will do something amazing with your life in 2016.
You are ready to step outside your comfort zone. If you want a surefire way to know that this year is going to be exactly like all the years before it, then decide that you’re going to stay where you’re comfortable. On the other hand, if you’re ready to jump out of that comfort zone and go after your goals, trying something different even if it makes you squirm, there’s a good chance that even if you don’t meet your precise resolution, you’ll be able to do something amazing this year.
You are not afraid to fail. The worst excuse in the world for not even trying is fear that you’ll fail when you do. The road to success is paved with failure: ideas that have been tried, then discarded; opportunities taken even when they seemed to lead to nothing; connections made that took time to make a difference in your plan. No matter what your goals for 2016, consider this: it’s better to try and fail than to fail because you never tried at all.
You have planned to invest in yourself. No goal can be attained without investing. Too many times, you’ve spent your time, money, and energy on other people and other things that don’t really matter. To make 2016 truly amazing, commit to investing in yourself. You deserve time to relax and unwind. You deserve to go back to school and take classes in that subject that’s really important to you. You deserve those hours spent in the gym, making your body healthy and trimming off those extra pounds. Invest in yourself and you’re sure to see amazing results in the coming year.
You have decided to focus on building the life you care about, not a temporary fad. You aren’t going to sit around and wait for someone else to make your decisions for you, and you aren’t worried about what other people have to say. You’re paving your own path, following the advice that makes sense for you and your family instead of following the crowd. Blindly following the advice of others rarely helps people meet their goals, but doing your own research and making decisions you’ve taken the time to think out can make a huge difference in your life.
You will prioritise your health and wellness. You can accomplish little when you’re unhealthy, unhappy, and uncomfortable. This year, set aside your fears and head to the gym. Stop drowning your sorrows in food and look for opportunities to exercise, eat healthier, and make positive life changes. When you prioritise your health, something amazing happens: all of your goals, not just the ones regarding eating healthy or exercising more, seem easier to reach. You’ll be able to think more clearly. You’ll have more energy to spend on those critical projects. Most importantly, you’ll feel good about yourself, which will give you the courage to take those important chances and succeed.
