“Life is growth. If we stop growing, techincally and spiritually, we are as good as dead.”– Morihei Ueshiba
One of my biggest fears is being the same person I was last year. The great Albert Einstein used to say, ” The definition of insanity is repeating the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. That can be carried into the new year. Removing old habits and patterns that didn’t work for you and readjusting your personal growth formula to become the best version of yourself. If you aren’t growing, you are dying.
If I commit to the progress I achieved this past year, I will have a kick ass 2021.
Great things never come from comfort zones. Often times, a lot of our personally growing comes from hands on mistakes made or being in an uncomfortable life position. Comfort zone is a place where many dreams go to die. I’d like to call it the “Growth Graveyard”. You can see a great view only when you climb the mountain(not a comfortable task). There is a lesson in there.
This year has literally been one for the history books. As we wind down to the final week of 2020, I find myself reflecting on these past 365 days. There is a ton to take away from and I couldn’t be more excited for this next year. I will make a post later this week on 2021 personal goals but I challenge you to take some time and ask yourself the below questions.
A thinking exercise:
What was a strength that worked for you? ex: Routine, exercise, social scene
What didn’t work for you? ex: Lack of consistency, spending habits
What habit/toxic pattern are you leaving behind? Eliminate a bad habit.
What healthy daily habits are you starting up? ex: Meditation, journal practice
Did you have a routine that worked? If not, start one.
Finish the week and the 2020 year strong! THROUGH the line, not TO the line. Let’s do it.
