Due to the influx of connectivity, information and technological innovation, we are living in a time where it is difficult to distinguish and determine what the truth is. Through it all, we must seek to understand other people's perspectives while engaging in more We talk and less I talk. Instead of solely listening to people's words in 2019, keenly watch their behavior. What people say is not always what they do.
The cost of pleasing everyone will always be very high. Our holistic growth is propelled to new heights when we separate ourselves from negative people, thoughts and situations that do not serve our soul's purpose. When in doubt remove the joy stealers from your life.
My definition of mental toughness is the ability to see the bright side of a hopeless situation. Adversity is an experience, not a final act. On your journey, setbacks are merely moments to grow and get better. Each event must be viewed as a stepping stone to keep moving forward. Remain mindful in turning your obstacles into opportunities as you step away from the problem to understand the problem.
One of the hardest things for people to give up is excuses. There is a vast difference between what you want to do and who you want to be. The habits you practice, your rituals of life, and mindset are the only things that stand between you and the aspirations you have. Everything we seek already lies within us. We just need to fully commit to the right activities that are progressing us forward and not backward.
As you embark into 2019 focus wholeheartedly on not allowing days to slip by without growing and getting better in some facet of your life. All of your experiences and lessons learned up to this moment in your life is a part of the richness and fullness of who you are today and who you are becoming tomorrow. Remember every day you have the power within to make a choice to feel good and to choose between being happy or very happy. I am wishing you and yours a prosperous New Year filled with peace, love, clarity, insight, growth, breakthroughs, and peace of mind!
