What were your New Year’s resolutions? Have you kept them? It’s easy to make resolutions, but without a plan, you won’t make it out of January. Perhaps you’ve already failed your resolution, and that’s OK! It’s OK if you’ve given up; just try again with a different mindset in place. Let’s talk about three practices to take with you into 2019.
Change your perspective/change your life
Are you a negative person by nature? If you are, then try being a “glass half-full” person. Don’t let your gut reaction be negative. Think about the positives and be grateful—even for the smallest and simplest things. Be grateful for the mistakes and failures you encounter, because those are the things that teach us to do better!

Embrace your fears
What are your biggest fears, and how do they hold you back? I’m setting some personal goals to face and embrace two of my biggest fears this year. For me, a big fear is being in front of a video camera, so I’m doing a 31-day video challenge in which I’m sharing 31 lessons that I’ve learned and want to give back. Check out my one minute videos at #31vidchallenge! I’m finding that being the face in front of the camera is very different than being the voice behind the mic! I’m also embracing my fear of heights this year, in very specific and terrifying ways. Imagine what’s possible if you don’t let fear stop your progress!

Don’t chase the money
Do you know WHY you’re doing what you’re doing? You don’t if you’re chasing the money. Your WHY is the most important thing—not the money. Some people live their best life on a $12K salary, and some live their worst life on a six-figure salary. Chase your WHY and figure out your happy place. You have to be happy for YOU—not for others. You are enough!
