September will be fantastic. Exhilarating. Terrifying if we do it right…and absolutely brimming with possibilities you maybe didn’t take advantage of during the summer.
Maybe it’s just because it’s my birthday month or we’re programmed to think of the beginning of fall and school as new beginnings, but September always feels like a fresh start to me. A chance to reevaluate, measure where you are and set new goals for your life.
IT IS NEVER TOO LATE.
I don’t care how old you are, sick you feel, depressing your life is, or even if you’re the most unmotivated human in the world…
IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO START AGAIN.
See how I repeated myself? That means there is special emphasis on that particular thought ;)
If you’re not used to dreaming big and reaching for the stars then making goals can be a little intimidating at first. Take a moment and go into a quiet place and shut the door. Really THINK about what you want deep down, all the hopes and dreams and selfish desires that you don’t admit to your best friend, or maybe, even yourself.
Write them down. Every last one. Sometimes I think we secretly believe that we don’t deserve to achieve our biggest dreams. That maybe we’re not good enough or smart enough or skinny enough….it’s all BS. Tell that silly little voice to shush and dream big. Wanting to succeed is not selfish. In fact, I believe it is selfish to NOT try to become as successful as you can be. What a waste, to be a breathing human with talent and allow it to just set there unused like a stale loaf of bread!!
Think of this September as a chance to begin again. To charge full steam ahead and chase after every opportunity that may come your way. Aim high and don’t be afraid to ask for what you want…if you don’t go after your dreams, you’ll never know what you’re capable of achieving.
