It goes without saying that 2020 was certainly one of the toughest in history for everyone across the world as a result of the global pandemic. As human beings, we do tend to think immediately on the negative than on the positive. So be conscious of what went well for you in 2020 rather than what didn’t, by focusing on the positive, you are going to get off to a good start in 2021. So we’ve listed a few key points for you to consider putting into practice to ensure that you start 2021 in the best way possible.
Be grateful for everything that is in your life right now, gratitude opens the door for more good things to happen for you. If you focus on the good, more good things will open up for you. If you’ve been lucky to remain in employment, be grateful that you have a job as millions have lost their jobs due to the pandemic and the marketplace. If you have been made redundant, we are truly sorry to hear this, however, it’s always important to focus on the positive and on the hidden blessing. You must always believe that there are new opportunities on the way, there are always blessings in disguise.
Setting your goals and intentions for the year ahead, is one of the best things you can do. It’s all about setting your focus and fine tuning it. The more that you can fine tune your goals, the more specific you can be, and then you are more likely to achieve in hitting your goals. Setting your goals helps you to focus and gives you inspiration and hope for the future.
Your mind is the most important gift that have been giving to you. It’s important to keep you thoughts positive or to think positive. Your thoughts determine your words, your words determine your actions, and your behaviour determines your discipline, and your discipline determines your character. So in order to determine your thoughts, try and focus on feeding your mind with positive and encouraging friends, read good books and listen to good music. To keep your mood and energy up, is to get rid of all negative distractions, turn off the news, stop gossiping, stop complaining and distance yourself from negative people.
We all know that being healthy and fit is going to help you in everything that you do. Be mindful to start your day off right by going for a walk or going to the gym or even doing some prayers / meditation so that you can be both physically, emotionally and spiritually fit. We’ve all heard the phrase you are what you eat, so make sure that you replenish your body with food and drink that is going to help give you the energy that you need to achieve your goals.
Once you get the above in order, then take the appropriate action you need to successfully achieve your career goals in 2021. Action is the missing key to start working towards your goals. Procrastination and fear is the biggest hindrance to taking action, the antidote to this, is to have faith, believe in yourself and go for it. Start applying for the roles that you want, start calling the people you need to connect with and take action.
