How to make 2020 your best year

A new year is a clean slate and the perfect time to restart. We all want the year to be great, but it’s important to note that hoping for change without putting in any work, won’t get you very far, Choma. That’s why I have a list of things you can do to make 2020 your best year.

Be realistic

It doesn’t help to set goals that are not very realistic. When deciding on a goal, think about your current abilities and limitations and whether you can overcome these.

Plan ahead

Don’t wait until the last minute to do things. Rather write down your plans ahead of time and start working on them immediately. Procrastinating and wasting time will only lead to disappointment and stress.

Reward yourself

It’s important to celebrate all your achievements, no matter how small they are. Start by giving yourself rewards when you reach a target at work or school, when you manage to eat clean for a week or when you have been on time for all your commitments. It’s good to have a healthy balance of self-motivation and striving to do better.

Don’t beat yourself up

You also don’t want to beat yourself up about the things you didn’t get right. Although discipline is important, it does not mean you have to be harsh or negative towards yourself when things don’t go your way. Simply try again the next day.

Keep trying

When you come across challenges, it’s so important to keep trying. Don’t give up, Choma – success does not happen overnight. The more you work on certain things, the better you will become.

2020 can be your best year if you put in the work. Remember you are more than capable of living your best life, just stay focused on your goals. Good luck!
