Yes, we made it to 2017! Actually, I feel like we should be super happy that we survived 2016. Wow. That’s the only word that I feel can justify last year. Although 2016 was quite a crap-filled year, I did have some good takeaways.
The main thing that I learned in 2016 was the act of discipline. I was able to stay committed to projects that in yesteryears I would’ve quit as soon as it got a little difficult and/or I came up with another idea. The lack of dedication and discipline has plagued me most of my life. So, I’m ready to use this new tool from here on out.
In 2017, I’m going to remove fear from my path and keep going until I can’t go anymore. I’m going to learn to stay focused on one thing at a time. I’ve been multi-tasking my whole life, which has led to more unfinished products than finished. So, I’m picking and sticking to one thing at a time. It’s going to be a challenge, but that’s what I need.
One thing that I know I have to do in order to get to where I would like to be is to make my presence known. I’m a firm believer that you have to do more to get more, especially in life. So, I have to do more, which includes putting myself out there more. I’m already cringing at the thought of me having to do this, but it has to be done.
In the end, I’m anxious to see what 2017 has in store for me and what I have in store for it, too.
