Look, I do not like New Year’s Resolutions. I think they’re cheesy and definitely cause eye rolls from me every year. Why wait until the next year to change something about yourself or your life? However, I couldn’t pass up the chance to play off of this catchy title, could I? Therefore, I put together a list of 20 things that I am looking forward to in 2020 or that I want to accomplish. So it’s not just goals I’m working on, but things that will be happening.
Read more and tell me in the comments if anything on my list matches something on yours!
I aspire to be like The Rock, Will Smith or Chris Hemsworth with their seemingly endless amounts of motivation and positivity. But sometimes I fall short and look for other sources outside of myself to help me out. That’s where motivational podcasts come in. A few years ago I was not a podcast listener at all. But then I discovered My Favorite Murder and was hooked. Now, my podcasts venture away from solely true crime and head over to the motivation, positive thinking and other categories.
If you’re interested in what motivational podcasts I listen to, keep reading.
Hello all! I’m here again with another #GoalsFour post. If you happened to stumble upon this post, basically I list out four goals I want to achieve or things I want to work on for said month. Get it? Goals for… Goals FOUR… Yeah, super clever. I also revisit what I listed in my last installment and end by saying four things I did well with. Check out my latest #GoalsFour post. If not, keep reading to find out about my goals for June 2019.
I’m a millennial, thus it’s not surprising to hear that I enjoy social media and consuming online content. However, this isn’t something that’s interested me now since it’s more trendy. For years I thought and dreamt about starting my own blog, Youtube channel, etc. With Youtube, I quietly made a channel and would upload maybe two videos every year. And it wasn’t util late summer 2018 when I started this blog.
Something finally clicked in. I finally did what I wanted to do for so long. I did it for me. And sure, neither are my main sources of income (yet) but it’s a great creative outlet that I’m proud of. If you are thinking about starting a blog, but are nervous or just need some more motivation to: keep reading.
I’m back with another “installment,” if you will, of #GoalsFour on my blog. Basically what I do is every other month (or whenever) I list my four goals (get it – play on “goals for…”) the upcoming month. I list things I want to do, accomplish or improve on. But not only that. Additionally, I list four things I did well on recently. Either the last month or since my last #GoalsFour post.
The last installment of this was done in February. You can click the link above to read it. But now we are in Spring, the days are longer and we even had a day of weather in the upper 60s. So as I prepare for April, which I believe will be a very transformative month for me, I felt that this would be the perfect time to do this. So continue reading as I sit back and reflect.
I always talk about complacency. The fear of it. My determination to not get anywhere near it in my life. And to be honest a pretty frequent feeling that at times I am. For instance, I always discussed wanting to travel the world. Living in a foreign country, going backpacking across Europe or South America, spending a year in Australia on a working holiday visa, you name it. But to me, I always looked at those things as what I would do in the future.
“I can’t wait to travel SOMEDAY.” Sometimes I’d even say soon. For me doing it now didn’t seem like an option. Despite my numerous visits to my many travel apps trying to find the best flights available. For instance, a couple months ago I found a round-trip ticket to Paris for $250. I’m still kicking myself for not getting it. But recently I decided to take a leap of faith.
In this Youtube video I quickly discussed what I started doing to attempt and spark motivation during my low-motivation periods. Visualizing your goals is something you always here. But does it really make a difference?
