Making 2018 Your Year For Success
It’s a new year! A fresh new start. A new beginning. Let’s not waste this opportunity! Do you want to make 2018 your year for success?
Ask any successful person and they will tell you, success doesn’t come easy and without discipline, hard work, and sacrifice. This doesn’t mean you are miserable. In fact, far from it. When you are working on something that you believe in and are passionate about you experience JOMO (Joy Of Missing Out) because there’s nowhere else you’d rather be.
Passion will bring discipline, discipline will bring hard work, and hard work will lead you to success. #success #hardwork #discipline Click To Tweet
Think about it this way. Teenage boys. They are smelly, messy, often sloppy and just don’t really care.*note: this is not ALL teenage boys, this is just an example to paint a picture* Mom and/or Dad has done all that they know to correct this but it’s just not happening. Then. Boy meets girl. Boy wants to impress girl. Suddenly, he’s wearing clean clothes, cologne, and tucking his shirt in to impress her. Why? He’s found his ‘passion’, and suddenly this messy, smelly, sloppy guy is self-disciplined and trying to impress.
The moral of the story is this, when you find your passion it will lead you to self-discipline. That’s not the end of the story though; it’s a lot of hard work and learning that goes into it. You can handle it though because you know what you want. Sometimes finding your passion takes some trial and error, the important thing is that you learn and grow from it. The awesome thing about starting at the bottom is that the only way to go is up.
What do you want out of this year? It’s time to set some goals and a roadmap to ensure that you make 2018 your year for success. #success #andyrobsondesign #roadmaptosuccess Click To Tweet
