What are you destined for? What path will you carve out in 2018?
As we wind down 2017 and close the chapter on another year, I want to ask you a question: do you know your role? Why are you at the exact place and time you are right now? It’s not by coincidence. Everything has been lined up for you for a reason. Are you aware of what’s going on around you?
Take a step back and start doing some critical thinking for the new year. Sure, you can do the usual goal setting and have a vision for where you want to be 12 months from now, but I want you to think bigger picture. Not just what your vision is but what is your greater purpose? What is your role in this thing we call life? You were born for a reason and now it’s time for you to fulfill your destiny.
Think about all the people in your life and how they all helped shape you into the man or woman you are today. You have life experiences that no one else can relate to – use it to your advantage! Why did you meet certain people? Why did you take that job? Why did you move to a certain city? The more you start asking why, the better equipped you will be to determine your role.
Time waits for no one. If you want to make a change and follow your role in the universe, then take the reins and ride on into the sunset. There’s no point in running away from your fears, in fact you should be running toward them to face them head on. If not, they’ll just be nipping at your heels until you have the courage to address them. Confrontations are not necessarily a bad thing – you might as well face what you’re afraid of and start 2018 with a clean slate.
Always remember that there is more to life than work and that your job does not define you. You define your own role in life and my hope for you in the new year is that you OWN it! Do what you makes you happy and forget about the rest. Time to get rid of all the haters in your circle and say good bye to any negative energy. A new year means a fresh start and if you have to clean house and take out the trash, by all means do so.
Your life is limitless and has no boundaries. Your role can be whatever you want it to be. Some people like the spotlight while others prefer to bask in the sun on a quiet island somewhere. You do you and know that you are destined for great things – you just have to believe it. Here’s to bigger and brighter things in 2018. Godspeed ahead my friends!
