It’s a brand new year! Can you believe it? Are you excited? Are you jazzed??
How are you going to make this year different than last- in business, in health, in spirituality, in family? What will you do to ensure that your life is taking the right trajectory toward complete wholeness- or what I like to call true success?
Here are just a few tips to help you launch your new year of business with purpose and excitement. You can do this!
Take spiritual inventory.
No matter your faith (and even if you don’t claim to have one), your spirituality, which is deeply personal to you, affects your life in every way. Your worldview and the way you perceive circumstances in life will have a huge impact on whether you achieve success this year or not.
In my life as a devout Christian, I find that reading scripture and meditating daily on them is helpful to my well-being overall and makes me a more confident person. This confidence exudes into my business life. I really can’t separate them!
I’m planning to take some major spiritual inventory this year- digging up some weeds and planting new seeds in the garden of my soul- so that I can achieve in all areas in my life God wants me to. This is a process and something I can’t achieve overnight, but I’m working on it.
Set goals and stick with them.
I have SO many goals, you don’t even want to know about them. Seriously. My goals list can reach close to a hundred pretty quickly, because that’s just how much I want to get out of life. I want to accomplish everything.
But, alas, that’s impossible.
So, my job at this point is to narrow down my goals to specific ones that are achievable for this year only, and stick with them.
Sticking with goals, means that I constantly review my goals each month to make sure I’m still on track. And if I feel that I’m getting off kilter, all I have to do is pull out my handy dandy Google docs, and there are all of my wonderful business and life goals all typed out.
Step into the new year with confidence!
There are so many reasons to doubt ourselves. After all, as moms we’re super busy putting out the fires everywhere, pleasing everyone, and taking care of business both at home and for others. There are a gazillion reasons why we might be tempted to lose our confidence that we can do this online blogging business thing.
But we can!
Don’t give up if it takes longer than everyone else to get your blog going. Your blog might not reach 1,000 page views for months. But don’t let that discourage you.
You keep your focus on why you’re doing what you’re doing, and find the joy in it that will keep you fueled and energized. Be confident in your offerings to the world, and don’t look to the right or to the left.
It doesn’t matter how much traffic another mom blogger is receiving, or how many of her pins went viral when yours are stagnant. If you don’t watch everyone else you won’t have time to worry about their successes. Because you need to be happily busy with your own successes. And you will have plenty of them if you’re patient.
So be confident! You can do this!
Have I encouraged you? I sure hope so.
Happy New Year to you!
