My New Years Goals of 2018. There are people who love to set goals for the new year, then there’s others who laugh at the idea. There are some people who achieve their goals and then others quit within the first few days. I feel like the majority of us write down our goals starting with ‘I will give up x y and z.’ I believe it shouldn’t always be about giving up things. Instead, why don’t we start taking things up?
Here’s My New Years Goals of 2018. I have listed all of the wonderful things I want to achieve, however there’s no pressure on myself to make sure it definitely happens. It’s interesting to write a list and see what comes to mind when you are anticipating a fresh start. What’s more, the 1st of January is on a Monday! Fresh week, new year, can you get a more motivating start than that?
I am going to unleash my inner geek and dive nose first into as much knowledge as I can. Soak up more knowledge about my passions and things I love reading about. One of the first things I am going to do in the new year is order a handful of self development, business, motivational and nutrition books. I will make it my New Years resolution to read a minimum of one chapter every day.
Make a start on my dream career
I aspire to have my own sportswear apparel. It’s time to make a start on achieving my dream. Towards the end of the year I have put my thoughts down on paper but now it’s time to research, network, design and do whatever I can do get the ball rolling.
Create new projects
Youtube has been something in the back of my mind for a long while. Another project of mine is creating a podcast. Both of these ideas are completely out of my comfort zone but you can achieve anything when you work hard with a positive mindset.
Give a compliment to someone every day
Sounds silly but very effective. Not only will that person (hopefully) feel good after receiving my compliment but it will make me feel good as well. A small compliment can go a mighty way to brighten someones day.
Mix up my workouts
Boxing is something that I have always wanted to try as well as barre and maybe even yoga. Yes, there I said it. I might just turn into the biggest yogi of 2018. Highly doubt that but I will at least try and enjoy it.
Save more money
I am not silly with my money but I feel like I could be better. I want to have savings for my future business, living in London and emergencies. Overall, form a better financial structure.
Anybody that knows me well knows that I am obsessed with Los Angeles. Hopefully I will get the chance to visit my future home in the new year.
Journal more often
I have only just discovered the power of journalling. I used to only journal about calories and my eating disorder (such a light hearted novel) but now I write exactly whats on my mind and let me tell you something – it’s so therapeutic. My goal is to keep writing next year.
Stay up to date with news
Ever since I landed a job working for a newspaper it has pushed me to find out more about what’s happening in the world. Already I have noticed my engagement in conversations grow with different people because of keeping myself up to date with the news. I want to continue my effort and read more from different sources.
I am going to help people who have low body confidence overcome their insecurities by feeling good working out. Fitness helped me through my eating disorder, so I want to help visualise to others, who may be suffering with mental health illnesses, that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I will do this by creating content on my blog and interacting with as many people as possible.
Don’t be afraid to be ME
Lastly but most importantly, 2018 is going to be the year where I lose the fear of worrying over what other people think about me. The past years I have undeniably hold myself back from being me for a very long time. 2017 made me realise that I shouldn’t ever let one person’s opinion become my reality. We all have our days of self doubt and feeling worthless. However, my new years resolution is to minimise those days from occurring because life is way to short to spend it being anybody but me. Tell me where’s the fun in that?
