Looking back on 2017, what’s the most important lesson you learned?

Stop putting limits on what you can accomplish

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own.

As we head into a new year, looking back on all I have learned, the world is NOT about what is unavaible to you , it is about making it YOURS!

As of yesterday I am a fully-self employed #GIRLBOSS and that for sure did not happen over night BUT it happened because I lived it, dreamed it and made it into reality.

In reflection of the last year , the words of wisdom I have is to really allow yourself to exceed your expectations. By writing down your goals, reading DAILY affirmations, meditating and doing more self care; it really changes your mindset on how to achieve your DREAMS! 

Stop waiting for the right time for it to happen, start the process , imagine as if you are already there and do the work to get you there!

Life for sure is NOT perfect and there will be bumps in the road but if it weren’t for the bumps in the road, how do you advance to the next level?

Stop limiting yourself in 2018, know that you can achieve your greatest desires and dreams.

It starts with envisioning it, writing it and then taking the steps to do it!

2018 is the year to achieve your wildest dreams, GO BIG!!  Be open to the fact that it might not be on your timing but it will for SURE come to fruition by taking the right steps to get there!

Happy New Year!!
