With the start of a new year, a lot of us tend to feel more refreshed and motivated to bring on new goals and often times, a new year resolution. But…as most of us know pretty well, the new goals and new year resolutions don’t last that long–in fact, most people who set these new goals tend to lose focus within the first few weeks of January.
I’ve never been one to necessarily set a new goal or resolution at the start of a new year for that specific reason–because they often don’t last and it’s focused only on accomplishing a goal, rather than an underlying purpose. I often get asked how I am consistently performing and executing my goals and I thought I’d share on this post my insights on goal setting and my strategic approaches to achieving the life I want to live.

They say traveling is good for your mental health and for learning new experiences. Well, not only is that true, but sometimes, it can make you feel more gratitude for things that seem so basic in your everyday life.

With 2018 coming to an end, I want to write this post to reflect on how this year went for me. As some may know from my past posts, the previous year (2017) was a year full of adversity for me, from transferring universities, feeling friendless, and not thriving in any parts of my career and business. Because of this low point, I made the decision last December that 2018 was going to be a brand new experience for me, in that it was ultimately going to be my year. And indeed it has…but now, 2019 is here and it’s another cycle of planning out my life as I approach graduation (honestly I’m screaming in my head as I type this).

Recently I was featured on a beautiful female community website (www.astoldbywomen.com) with this article and the quote they used from me as the main reference had many people commenting on the topic or asking me about it. I love the concept and understanding of why it’s important to control our emotions because I’ve personally invested a lot of research into understanding how emotions dictate our energy and mind.

So it’s almost the end of June and that means two more months till all recently graduated high school seniors head off to their first year of the “best four years of their life”. This topic is something I wish I could’ve told myself prior to beginning college, but as a rising college Senior, I am glad I have the knowledge now to share with those who are about to begin a new journey in their life.
For most of us, we typically live and grow up in the same hometown from the minute we were born. We have attended elementary, middle school, and high school with most of the same people and it has always felt comfortable. But now, most of you will embark on a journey in a completely new environment, perhaps even a new state like I did, surrounded by completely different people. I will admit, when I was 18, I didn’t really give this a second thought because I truly felt ready for this change in lifestyle and environment. However, there are a few things I wish I could have kept in mind as I entered this new reality and I’ll explain why. Continue reading “My Advice to Incoming College Freshmen”
