7 THINGS YOU SHOULD STOP DOING BEFORE 2017!
Momlife Tuesday, December 6, 2016
Because if you've not started gearing up for 2017, you're probably too late!
This might as well be A Note To Self but i'm sharing it with you all because I know I'm not the only one that needs to shed some of this negative weight and step into 2017 like a BOSS! The year is not officially ended but I don pack all my load, I don dey ready...No chill. I don't want to wait till the 31st, during Cross Over service to start thinking about things like new years resolutions. Thinking about prepping now for the new year like running a relay race....you cannot afford to be docile if you want to win, you gats dey jog as your partner is running forward and then you grab the baton and GO!
I'm one of those people who can worry for the whole of Africa, I will sit on a rocking chair and worry, worry, worry. Who worry epp? Over thinking causes a headache and gets me no where, so I will start being proactive instead. No more time to spend doing "what if", "what if"...Have you noticed how it's hard to overthink in the positive direction?
SCARED OF CHANGE
Sai Baba! 2016 has been a rollercoaster kind of year for me, up, down, sideways, down, up, up, up, down...just higgi-hagga. It has been continuously changing. Some situations that I hoped would be constant weren't and those I thought would be transient look like they are here to stay. Year of change...the only thing constant in life is change so if you are busy loathing change instead of going with the flow, you find yourself in a mess.
Self Care above everything else right now! Emotional, financial, anyhow kind of self-care. If you're not making yourself happy why are you existing? Take time out to relax, to have fun, to be present! Have you ever taken time alone to ponder on this "What Is Life About?"
Because procrastination is a thief of time. You lose time the more you procrastinate and this is something I struggle with. I am actively working on this and hopefully in 2017 this would have reduced to a bare minimum if it hasn't completely stopped! LOL. The best time to plant a tree is yesterday. A lot of opportunities will be lost if you don't stop putting things off.
Because you are not Jollof and you cannot make everybody happy. If you're constantly thinking about how to make everyone happy you will drive yourself crazy. I know. So staaaaaaaap it! You will bend over, lean in, if you like sef fall over in your bid to please people but if they don't appreciate you, you are just wasting your precious time.
SELLING SELF SHORT
I don't know why I do it sometimes... Selling yourself short can affect every area of your life, you end up short changing yourself and eventually unhappy. Why do you think you don't deserve the "good life" (or whatever it is you're going after?). If you're an entrepreneur this is one of the worst things you can do to your business and people will ride you!
NOT GIVING YOUR "ALL"
Because what is worth doing is worth doing well, you either do it well or not at all! Go all in! Pursue your dreams ferociously...don't be mediocre. Do it for 1 year and see positive changes. Make 2017 that year to give it your everything...your best!
What other things do you want to stop doing in 2017?
