When I started this journey at the beginning of the year, I never once imagined that it could have so much effect on me. I have always been one to set goals each year and then as the time passed, I forgot or life would get in the way and at the end of the year, I was making the same goals for the following year. I knew this process would make me accountable and to keep those goals in sight, but I never expected to learn so much about me in the process, which in some ways has helped to change me in an unexpected way. I thought I was a strong-minded person, who took charge and headed in the general direction that I assumed I was going. Little did I realize the path I used to take was always the easy option, if I could change my goals to meet this easier path, this was my route.
Looking Forward To My Journey
Therefore, by making myself accountable, I had no other choice but to take the path that would lead me to achieving my goals; I couldn’t choose the easy option some point down the road. I have struggled, I have tried to fight this and ultimately I have realized that to get to that point where I reach my goals, I have to embrace things and tackle them head-on. There is no more trying to find the easy route, there is no more trying to talk myself out of what I want because of the fear of the unknown.
This fear is no longer going to control me, I am going to control that fear, I am going to tackle the fear head on and come out on the other side. I have to learn to recognize the signs that something is not right and ensure that I take immediate action to prevent the fear taking over.
Have My Goals Changed
Taking that fear away shows me the true path I want to follow is the one, which I set out at the beginning of the year. That is where my heart lies and that is where I am heading.
It feels like a weight, lifted off my shoulders, I have the motivation and the determination to follow that path and not to shift sideways when a problem or some fear blocks my way.
My dream still follows the path of creating and developing my site, reaching more and more readers every day. To increase my email subscribers as well as my reach on the different social media. Yes, I need an income too, I can’t live on nothing and with the positive steps I am taking this income has the potential to grow.
What I Am Looking Forward To In My Journey
I can’t wait to see where my journey takes me, I am more focused on the things I want than I have ever been in the past. There is no stopping me, while this is great I am not going to forget that part of my journey is to ensure that I put time aside to exercise and to look after my health. When I take these steps and put my health as a top priority, I am able to do more and I feel so much better.
I have learnt this last month that the only thing that sabotages my chances to succeed in my goals; is me. With the knowledge that I now hold, I am able to take steps to ensure that with each day that passes I am not going to let my dreams slip by, I am going to fight for them and make them count on my journey.
To summarize, this month I have learnt so much more about me and have taken the steps to ensure that the fear I have had which held me back for so long is no longer going to control my destiny.
