It’s so amazing that we are in a new year and a new decade, 2020 will be a year of greater exploits for those who want to be intentional about their goals and do not want their goals to slip through their hands this year without getting any results.
This is my first blog post for the year and I will be explaining some important things you should do this year.
My question to you is this; how hungry are you? How badly do you want to succeed this year? This quote by Jim Rohn which states “For things to change you have to change” is what I want you to think and meditate on.
To be intentional is to make thoughtful decisions in your life. I can say it is to do more than you are doing right now; it is to actively interact and engage with your life.
Here are 5 tips to help you live an intentional life.
Write your vision
Almost every year, people have a vision for their lives but they do not write it down. A well written plan is 100% better that the one you have kept in your head. Even the bible can attest to it ‘ Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables that he may run that readeth it.'(HAB. 2:2)
When you write it out, you will be able to describe the future you want, and what is most important to them. This provides purpose and direction to your life.
Give yourself the permission to create the success you want. You have all it takes to succeed this year, give yourself a higher chance of achieving the things you want.
Let nothing hold you back, not even your fears.
This is the time you need to be intentional about your goals for the year. It’s the beginning of a new decade you can start a new business, launch your brand, build an online course, you can enrol for an online course, you can start a new degree, a new family. You can start a new job, a new investment and watch how successful you would have become at the end of the year.
Learn New Skills
There are many online sites where you can learn different skills for free, one of them is – https://www.coursera.org/ You can check it out.
If you are trying to do things before, for this year don’t try, just do them. You can do it afraid as well but make sure it’s a deliberate action.
Be intentional about your business, let everyone know about it. This year be intentional about every aspect of your life.
Have a good saving plan
Do you remember those days when we use to save jokingly; this year is another opportunity to save intentionally. Let it be a deliberate act from you, you can get a piggy box where you make it a conscious habit to save daily or you can use an automated way of saving from your bank or through the app- https://www.piggyvest.com/
Save daily/ monthly and watch how much you have been able to save for the year. I do this and it works, you should try it too.
As this saying goes ‘you can’t give what you don’t have.’ When you contribute reasonably in public it’s as a result of the positive things you have within you.
There are many books and resources out there in the world today that you can read, make it a deliberate act of reading a book every week by the end of the year you would have read 52 books. Build your horizon, enlarge your capacity.
Build Quality Relationship
Shut out negative people from your life, those that do not see any good in you should not be part of those you communicate with.
Learn to go to the right places to establish right relationships. You are to show love to the people around you.
One of the ways you should build quality relationship this year is to be responsive to reproof and correction from your loved ones because you are human you dont know it all, and you can make mistakes.
Finally, I will end with this words “Guard your heart with all diligence, be careful what you believe, be careful what you hear and what you listen to”. Your life and your success depend on it.
I am ready to be more intentional this year. Are you?
I would love to hear from you.
