1. WRITE IT DOWN
First things first. What do you ultimately want to do? Have you given yourself a deadline yet? What do you need to do in order to achieve your goals? Jotting down your thoughts in a journal or using a printable worksheet that you can find online will help lay the groundwork for what’s ahead.
2. KEEP IT SIMPLE
You know the familiar phrase, “Go big or go home”? When it comes to making a change in your life, starting small is key. To avoid setting yourself up for potential failure, be realistic in the beginning. Don’t commit to overly complicated plans that you can’t deliver on. It may sound cliché but keeping things simple is how you stay focused.
3. IGNORE NAYSAYERS
People around you may not always be supportive of your decision to make a change. And that’s OK! Just as they’re entitled to their opinions, you are entitled to yours. Don’t let them discourage you from following your dreams. This is YOUR life and YOUR decision.
4. CREATE YOUR SPACE TO FOCUS
Whether it’s physical or mental, start claiming a particular space as your own. This is where you can focus on your plans for moving forward—without being disturbed. Don’t pollute it with other people’s dreams — this is where your dreams can become a reality.
5. CELEBRATE YOU
Never forget to take the time to recognise all the progress you’ve made. You’ve already done something wonderful, just by taking the steps to make a positive change in your life. Give yourself a pat on the back for putting in all that hard work. You deserve it, so treat yourself to something nice!
We wish you the best of luck! Remember, we’re always in your corner, cheering you on!
