On this episode I talk about how we can fall into a trap of waiting for the new year to change our lives. Why wait for 2021 to be awesome? We can make it happen now, hear me out 🙂
Why wait for 2021 to be awesome?
I know 2020 has been a challenging time for all of us. Covid really stopped the world and left us with all sorts of challenges including mind, body, spirit, career…the list goes on.
I’ve spoken briefly about covid in Episode 24, about an analogy I heard, how we are all in different boats, but in the same storm. I kinda liked that way of looking at it, as for some it has been harder than others.
Now it is November 2020, and I am now hearing many people say ‘I look forward to 2021, surely that will be a better year.’ That’s a nice way to stay positive and look forward to the future I suppose. BUT why wait for a date? Are we miraculously going to change our attitude on January 1, 2021?
I may receive a backlash from this episode, who knows? But I am willing to hear opinions on this.
But I have written blogs in the past, way back before covid on the mental shift, or goal setting, dream making, etc that happens in every new calendar year. And truly, I love it. I love seeing and hearing peoples enthusiasm at those times. But my point is, I really love seeing and hearing that at anytime of the year. Don’t you?
So this brings me back to my comment at the beginning: Why wait for 2021 to be awesome? Can we make awesome NOW?
The word I have heard a lot recently, that many successful people have used this year is ‘pivot.’ (have you been hearing that a lot too?) Basically, they have changed the direction of their business, due to current challenges, to still meet the needs of their market. This is awesome! Have you been doing this too? Even on your personal life, not just professional? I hope so.
We have learned to be more creative and think outside the box. Have you done anything different like that this year to keep your self going, both personally or professionally? I’m sure you have.
But many notice this as something to complain about and ignore the creativity, or new possibilities that may be different to what we are used to, but actually are sometimes even better.
I’m going to use a few examples here, just to remind us of the possibilities that have come from this.
So let’s get back to my original point: Why wait for 2021 to be awesome?
Is there opportunities for you to have awesomeness right here right now? I’m sure there is.
