It’s January, and for many of you that means one thing: it’s time to start achieving some goals says Fred Auzenne.
If you’re not already trying to change your life for the better, here are five things to remember if you want to achieve your goals this year.
1. Happiness is a choice.
Yes, happiness is a choice. No, that doesn’t mean that you’re always happy no matter what happens to you, but it does mean that how you react to what happens to you is completely within your control. If there are goals you want to achieve this year, ask yourself whether they will make your life better – if the answer is yes, then go for it! If the answer is no or not sure, figure out why and fix them so that achieving them becomes beneficial for your overall quality of life.
2. You can learn anything.
You would be surprised at just how many people believe that certain things are impossible because they don’t understand how they work. Whether its calculus or car engines or computers, most of the things that you want to learn are a lot easier than you think. If you feel like a goal is too hard for you to achieve, don’t give up. Do some research on what it takes to get where you’re going and set yourself up for success!
3. Your self-worth isn’t your net worth.
The amount of money in your bank account has almost nothing to do with how much value you actually have as a person says Fred Auzenne. If goals that seem out of reach financially motivate you then go for them! It’s fantastic that they motivate you at all – just remember that if something comes between your progress and your goals, keep looking until find something else that will help you get there and leave regrets behind.
4. You are not who you used to be.
One of the most important things to remember when trying to achieve goals is that you are different than you were one year ago – and so are your friends, family members, coworkers, neighbors, etc. Realize that even if people aren’t supportive of your goals at first they might cheer you on later down the road once they realize how much happier you’re becoming with yourself!
5. Leave ‘enough’ for others.
If there really was only enough to go around for everyone in the world, nobody would have ever gotten an advantage over anybody else – but there’s not, so somebody always gets more resources than other people do. Realize that life isn’t a zero-sum game, and that you can help other people succeed at their goals without neglecting your own explains Fred Auzenne.
