Welcome to Episode 12 of the Grow For It small business podcast. As we wrap up 2019, I’d like to take a few minutes to share a few thoughts and perspectives for 2020.
There are so many opportunities at your finger tips. We’ve never had so many advantages, compared to previous generations. One of the advantages is the experience we gained during this past year. We’re another year smarter. Both mistakes and successes can lead to learning opportunities.
Take time to think about your dreams. What’s holding you back? What are you willing to do in pursuit of them?
With 2020 knocking at our doors here are a few key thoughts:
Dream Big. There’s so much out there to learn, to accomplish and to achieve. That process begins with allowing yourself to dream.
Set Audacious Goals. Don’t worry if they seem impossible. The best long-term goals are supposed to feel that way. The important point is to commit to your success by taking steps toward them.
Become Your Biggest Cheerleader. Your progress, and happiness, is ultimately up to you. Remember the importance of also cheering for others. Their success doesn’t take away from yours.
Expect the Storms. Life is full of them. Regardless of the situation, it’s only temporary. You can and will get through them.
Remember to Breathe. Stress and pressure will try to shut you down and derail your pursuit of those dreams. Remember to breathe and believe in yourself.
Be Thankful for What You Have. As I often remind myself and my friends, “I compete against me.” Life is full of temptations and reasons to feel less than successful. Others have worked hard to try to provide you with opportunities and to make your path a little smoother. Be thankful.
Finally, Believe that there are a million opportunities out there. Most importantly for 2020, have the courage to chance one of them.
Your mindset will play an important role in your upcoming success. I hope these perspectives for 2020 will help you get off to the right start and build momentum along the way!
