You know what they say: new year, new you. While 2018 might have been a good or just an okay year for you, 2019 will even be better if you just have the right mindset and plan. For sure, the year has been a series of ups and downs but the good thing is, you were able to survive it. Yes, you may have experienced financial or business losses but that doesn’t mean you can’t do better this year. Consider this new year a starting point to make new short-term and long-term goals. Don’t let your failures define or hinder you from investing or starting your own business. Take the leap of faith and believe that you can do it. All it takes is to have the right mindset and hustle to achieve the success you’ve always wanted.

It’s no secret that success lies on planning. We cannot simply rely on chance and all the more on beginner’s luck. You need a solid game plan so that no matter how crazy things can get, you know what you’re going to do and where you’re headed. Start planning now and make very specific goals. Go as specific as indicating an amount that you plan to invest or use to start a business. You need to develop a solid and realistic plan for you to be able to work on your goals.
The plan you’re going to make doesn’t necessarily have to be perfect. Halfway through the year, you need to reevaluate and reassess in order to check if the plan still works. If not, you need to revise it.
Let’s say you’ve achieved what you wanted on time. Does that mean you stop there? Definitely not! Success isn’t just and end, it’s also a means – a means to achieve more success and for you to grow indefinitely. Focus on the goal but also leave room for other plans. Don’t let past success prevent you from bringing yourself to the next level. The common mistake of people is that even though they desire success, they keep on delaying it. How, you ask? By not starting at all. Remember that apart from making specific goals and crafting a plan, execution holds everything together.
One last advise I can give you is to leave 2018 behind and make a fresh start. Start taking risks. If you want to invest in the stock market, do it; if you want to start a business, go for it; if you want to franchise, do it. There is nothing stopping you except yourself. You must always take into consideration your available resources. Be resourceful and work with what you have. However, it’s best not to entirely empty your pockets. You must be able to reserve a specific amount of money or cushion just in case things don’t turn out the way you planned it to be. Things won’t always go your way hence the need for a contingency plan.
The risks you’ve taken will be compensated in the future. Just like any other security, it requires time to mature. So, go ahead and make money. Make 2019 your year.
