‘New Year, new me’ they alwaaaays say every year. But how do people expect a change in their life if nobody is willing to renew your mindset?
And be renewed in the spirit of your minds
In order to see a difference, actions must be taken in place.
In order to see progress, discipline and persistence must be pushing forwards within your life.
There are things currently within your life that you may not even be aware of at the moment that is possibly hindering you from moving forward. Here are a few necessary points I believe would help bring a powerful change for you in 2019.
1. Let go of dead things
Anything majorly toxic in your life should be removed. Identify the toxic areas in your life that is causing you to feel dragged down. Is it your friends? Your partner? Your job? Whatever the case may be, there is not a better time than now to let it go.
‘Go from the presence of a foolish man, when you do not perceive in him the lips of knowledge’
1 Corinthians 15:33
‘Bad company corrupts good character’
When you surround yourself with toxic people for so long it can hinder you spiritually, mentally and emotionally from prospering on forwards. Remove yourself from the situation and position yourself around those who are more fruitful and positive.
2. Stop dreaming
STOP dreaming, START moving.
I cannot stress this enough. Soooo many people have dreams, goals and aspirations that they CAN achieve! But we tend to come up with so many excuses as to why we cannot pursue the goals yet.
One thing I do know, is that in order too get to a destination, you at least have to take your first step. Even if it’s just a baby step!
Make small goals within an action plan on how you will move forward towards your aspirations.
Please start moving. That car, that house, that business etc will not appear out of the sky. We must take action.
Faith without works is dead
3. Believe in yourself
We can never truly rely on other people to make our lives more exciting or to see our self worth. The more you love and believe in yourself, the more joyful you will become within yourself. Which also means you will have the tendency to let bad habits fall. Such as overeating, negative thoughts about yourself, smoking, drinking too much alcohol and much more.
The removal of bad habits will catapult you into a happier, brighter, positive version of yourself.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he
4. Detox your body and household
Decluttering your household and your body can also have a mental effect on you too.
The cleaner your surroundings, the clearer your mind tends to become.
I have also found the healthier your plates are, and the less you eat junk food, your body will feel much more alive and revived!
1 Corinthians 10:31
Whether you eat or drink, do all for the glory of God
1 Corinthians 3:16-17
Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst
1 Corinthians 14:40
All things should be done decently and in order
5. Plan your days, live purposefully!
I would advise everyone to get a planner, I absolutely love daily planners. You have the opportunity to schedule your days. Normal daily planners usually involve sections of tasks, goals, meals, to do lists and more. You name it!
It’s so important to wake up with a goal in mind, not just existing for the sake of it.
Master time management and become more purposeful each day.
Write the vision and make it plain
6. Get a massage
Massages are so relaxing. They sooth the muscles, rejuvenate your skin and make your body feel so replenished.
Once you have your massage, you will feel like a new person!
7. Treat yourself to a new wardrobe
In new clothes you can feel so empowered, like a completely different person!! Embrace the new season you are in right now by clothing yourself with new, lovely outfits.

8. Seek God’s Will
God’s will is the best way. He is your Creator and the only person who knows why you’ve been placed on the earth. Once you do the things you have been created to do, open doors of great opportunity comes your way.
A man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before great men
