Happy New Year!!
I know its 18 days into the year but when is it, officially not OK to say Happy New Year….
2015 was an incredible year filled with both many highs and lows but as the year progressed I learnt so much about myself and I am finally becoming happy with who I AM!
I thought I would share with you some lessons I learnt in 2015! Hopefully they will be of some help to you.
So let’s not waste any more time and get started….
My 2015 Lessons
Live your dreams to the fullest
Quite Simply DO NOT hold back on your dreams. Even if you are in the process of making those dreams happen, then live each day as if you can feel those dreams are real and your current reality!
Let Go and Let God
Many times we have situations that arise in our lives that we have to acknowledge and understand that we have no control over. We have to stop trying to fix the situation and just have faith that everything will work out as it is meant to.
Now I can appreciate that not everyone believes in God or is religious but when I say God, I basically mean trusting in whatever you believe and just letting the situation GO!
Clique I know but this is what everyone should live by! The key is not to just be positive but to speak and think nothing but positivity. Life can serve you difficult hurdles and curve-balls and can lead a person to believe that they are having a bad day. It is important however to always remain positive especially on these days. The lesson here is to look at what you are being taught from these hurdles or curve-balls and to understand that everything happens for a reason.
Keep DIRTY feet out your mind
The Great Mahatma Gandhi once said “I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.”
When you have a great idea/plan your initial reaction is to tell everyone or share it with everyone, colleagues, friends and family. However I have definitely learnt that this is not always the best thing to do. Sometimes the moment you tell someone about your great idea/plan they instantly tell you everything they believe is wrong with the idea/plan or everything they see going wrong with your idea/plan. At times this can be a conscious effort to sabotage you and sometimes it can be subconscious. Some people don’t even understand that they are always operating from a place of fear….fear of failure or even fear of succeeding. The lesson here is to sometimes keep those ideas/plans to yourself until you are ready to share it with the world. This will mean that no matter what opinions others may have, it will not affect how that idea/plan is executed!!
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
Ultimately the most important statement ever! I feel this is something that should remain a constant!! Never stop believing in yourself not matter what! Believe in yourself even when you feel there is no way out or when life feels stagnant and you want to make a change but you’re unsure that you can. Everyone has the ability to change their life but first you have to change your mind and that begins with believing that you can do anything you set your mind to. You just have to visualise yourself achieving what you want to achieve or being what you want to be! Visualise till the point that it feels real and eventually with hard work and positivity, opportunities will arise to lead you to those dreams!
