But this doesn't have to define your 2023. It can be different. Unique. Against the grain. We don't have to fall victim to every trend that's out there. We can create our own destiny no matter what is going on around us. We can make the decision to NOT be a part of the majority, if the methods of the majority have proven to be an epic fail. We have a choice.
So what will YOU do differently in 2023? What personal or professional goals are you reaching for this year? Once you figure that out, write it down and review it on a regular basis. Start building your support circle and ban the negativity. The "you said that last year" folks? Revoke their invitation to be a part of your audience. Contrary to popular opinion, haters are not motivators. There is life and death in the power of the tongue, so surround yourself with those that speak LIFE into your dreams and aspirations.
But remember, your #1 supporter must be YOU. Work on your own belief in yourself, first and foremost. Like a dog can easily sniff out fear, people can always tell if you are doubting yourself. And if you don't believe in you, it will be nearly impossible for others to jump on board. Motivation to reach your goals has to start from within. Yes, there will be fear. There may be anxiety. Those are completely normal emotions that arise anytime you are attempting to make a change in your life. Embrace those emotions, and move past them. You only have one life to live, and there will only be one 2023. So make the decision for this to be your best year yet, and be determined not to drop the ball. There is no better time than the present to unwrap that priceless gift of change.
