Start 2021 with a plan

It’s a new year folks and I don’t know about you but I’d love to go through this one with a plan. After living my previous years without one I realized that I haven’t been in control of where i end up in my life. I have been letting things happen to me instead of making things happen.

This year I want things to be different. I want to live with a purpose. This is why even though people think having new year resolutions is a cliche, I think it’s the first step towards developing your plans for the year. Word of caution here; having new year resolutions will not change your life, following through with your plan to achieve those resolutions will.

Resolutions are like dreams, they paint a picture of what you want your year to look like. So as suggested by a friend I came up with 4 dreams that I want to achieve in 2021.
1.  Be happy
2. Treat myself like someone I love
3. Work on my writing
4. Work towards financial freedom

Now this is my list y’all and your dreams might be totally different and that’s alright we want different things out of life.

From there you need to come up with actionable steps towards achieving each goal.
For example
Financial freedom
1. Read books on how to attain financial freedom/research
2. Save/ cut down on spending (include how much you’ll save in a month)
3. Invest

You can use a journal/ an app

Do this for each and every one of your goals.

These will then act like guides on how you should be living your life throughout the year. Make sure that you take incremental actions everyday towards achieving your dreams. Ask yourself everyday, “what will I do today that will take me a step closer to my goal?”. Make your goals a part of your life style.

Am excited about the goals I’ve set for myself this year and I hope that you set some for yourselves too. Remember to live out the rest of 2021 with purpose and direction, take control of your Life, for as always ***you are the master of your fate and the captain of your ship***. You and only you can create the future that you desire and this begins with you having a plan.

Have a great 2021 you guys .

  1. The advantage of a bad memory is that one enjoys several times the same good things for the first time. Am enjoying reading this ❤️❤️
