This is a term we search for on a daily basis. We all want to know the secret to success. Whether it’s how to become wealthy, how to be happier or how to make a success of your business. The list is endless because we all want to become something more in life.
We read endless articles that motivate us, make us feel good and empowered. While this might actually help you at some point, you can only get so far by this motivation.
This is because most of us tend to enjoy the motivation more than making things happen, which is why we end up wasting time reading motivational quotes and still end up not doing what we are supposed to be doing.
While hanging out with the right type of crowd and the motivation you feed off from will help, there are just some things you have to figure out for yourself.
Below are a few things I have noticed about the average person who is trying to make a success of their life.
Most girls these days want to look like those Instagram models who had boob jobs done, had lip fillers and have fake a**. Even though I don’t have a problem with any of those adjustment done on anybody, I have a problem when it comes to other people feeling less confident and hating themselves based on how other people look.
Loving yourself is the most rewarding thing in the world. When you have low self-esteem, nothing you ever do seems valuable or good enough. Insecurities about you looks will only cause you to be insecure in other aspects of your life.
For the longest time I had the lowest self esteem. A lot of things contributed to me feeling that way about my self and I was doing nothing to eliminate those things in my life. I was very young back then and cared too much about what people thought and that ruined me.
Below are things that made me insecure. Once I got rid of the following, my life was a lot more enjoyable. I loved what I saw in the mirror for once in my life and I was confident in my abilities in a lot of things in my life.
February was a really unproductive month. I realized that I get so attached to a routine so much that I find it difficult to change. My blogging goals for February was to post at least 10 blog posts and then some but because of laziness and being used to sitting around, that ended up being only two posts.
Breaking bad habits is hard, especially if they are your comfort zone. The one thing that has helped in the past was making goals and writing them down, making sure to keep myself accountable.
So from this month on, I will be writing down my monthly goals and trying, by all means, to achieve every single thing on the list. It really is hard to not be a perfectionist when it comes to my writing but I have to learn to post even if I’m not feeling a post. Here are my March goals:
I never used to set goals for myself at the beginning of every year. I basically spent the past years just winging it and hoping for the best. But it was acceptable then because I was young and didn’t know any better.
Now that its 2017 and I’m legal (18 years old) and consider myself to be a bit of an adult, I think it’s about time I start. There are so many things I want to do this year but to avoid any disappointments; the only goals I am setting this year are for my blog since that is the only thing I can control.
I have had a lot of influence in the past two months when I started blogging and I’ve seen people reach success so fast. I thought it was easy but when I started, I realized how hard this blogging this actually is.
It was more than I bargained for but I was willing to take on the challenge because I’ve wanted to start a blog for so long that I couldn’t just give up when it got hard. I know right now making money might not be possible but I’m being hopeful that this hobby of mine might one day turn into something big.
Without any further rambling, here are my blogging goals for the year.
It would be an understatement to say with blogging, there is endless information that you can learn. And while that information is valuable, not all of that it will apply to your unique blogging journey.
When I first started out, I tried all the tips and tricks I came across and it got so overwhelming that I wanted to give it all up.
I actually did give up for a week one time. I stopped reading all posts relating to blogging and just cleared my head because it just got too overwhelming. There is a lot of information but applying it all is not the way to go. Below are a few things I learned as a beginner blogger.
A year is very long and if you don’t decide to take action on things you ant to do right now, in the blink of an eye it will be June and you will have a lot of regrets. The beginning of the year gives you a good, clean slate to start to learn new things and enhance your abilities.
Learning new things will help you gain self-confidence because once you are a pro at something, you be more interesting and people will admire you. That will, in turn, make you see yourself in a new light and have confidence in yourself.
College is a great time in life. It’s full of new life and learning experiences. But, it can definitely get hectic and of course, stressful. While you’re in school, keep these tips in mind because you matter before anything else.
Reading is probably the one thing I enjoy the most. One thing I love about it is that it is a hobby that will build you as a person. Yes, some hobbies can do the same but there is nothing as fulfilling as reading.
During 2016 I read so many books. Even with my limited time, I made sure that I read (I think it’s an addiction) . I knew that even though I feel like I’m wasting time, what I was reading was improving me.
Achieving goals isn’t the easiest, especially big goals. I’ve always set big goals for myself. For example, one of my biggest goals is to make $50,000 a year from this blog. I want to accomplish this in the next five years. And although in my mind this does not seem realistic, I told myself if other people manage to do it in a few months, then I can surely do it in 5 years.
Setting big goals is scary because there is a high chance of failure, and nobody likes failing. The benefit though is that once you manage to reach that goal, you will be much more confident to try to achieve bigger goals. This mindset will make you more successful than you’ve ever been.
