I can’t believe it’s July already. Where has the year gone?
I think that everyone can agree that the year 2015 has been progressing at an incredibly fast speed. It feels like only yesterday that I was making my New Year’s Resolutions and now the year is already more than halfway over.
When looking back on the year, it’s easy to regret opportunities missed or not taken and it’s easy to get into a mundane slump of redundancy. It sometimes feels like it’s too late to make the change that you want in your life, or the fear of failure is too great. However, over the past couple of weeks, I’ve done some serious reflection and have decided that there’s no time like the present to take the chances that could lead to something big.
Have you thought about your life goals or your New Year’s Resolutions and realized that you haven’t achieved, or even started, anything on your list? Instead of throwing the ideas away, decide what’s still important to you and just do it. Are you currently in a slump, whether it’s in your personal or professional life? If so, identify your problems and brainstorm solutions. If you constantly feel negative because you are surrounded by negative people, you could attempt to go out and make new friends. If you are stuck in a job that you don’t like, take a chance and pursue a career that you are passionate about.
Life changes, especially big ones, aren’t made overnight. It’s easy to get discouraged that your dreams haven’t become a reality in a short period of time. In order to stay motivated, create smaller, concrete goals that you can achieve along the way to your ultimate goal.
It’s a common belief that as people, we regret the chances we never take. Instead of merely thinking this and acknowledging it, take your dreams and make them a reality. It’s never too late to change your path and establish a life that you want to live.
Seriously. Just do it.
Until next week,
