12 Ways You Can Kick Start The New You.

ONE. Build a stronger and deeper foundation in Christ – get right with God this year. Do not be deceived without a strong foundation; we are just wasting time and efforts. It is never too late to rededicate your life to Christ or to make a firm commitment in your walk with Him this year

TWO. Woman-up. Meaning grow-up. Take responsibility for your actions and in-actions. Live with the consequences of your decisions and indecision. You have one life to live, do your best to live your best life. It’s not your parent’s responsibility to make you happy. Stop blaming your siblings for your life and stop hating on friends for not being there for you. You choose those friends and they are a reflection of you.

THREE. Learn to trust your instincts – Its time you start to trust your instincts and stop relying on everyone for guidance and directions.

Your instinct is the gift of experience. The more experience you have working on your instinct by learning to trust it. The more in time of need you will trust it. It may just be the difference between life and death. “Trust your own instinct. Your mistakes might as well be your own, instead of someone else’s.” — Billy Wilder

FOUR. Become the woman you have always wanted to be – You may not know what you want to do in life.  Everyone has a mental image of who they want to be. Stop making excuses and start being that woman today. God created 7 days so you can have a new beginning today! How about a fresh start right now? Who will you be this year?

FIVE. Discover and pursue your passion – Enough daydreaming. Start where you are right now. Start with the little you have. You don’t decide your destiny, you discover it. Success is waiting for you in the area of your passion. Until you discover your passion, you have not really experienced true success.

SIX. Be your own SHERO – stop waiting for Mr. Right to rescue you. Rescue yourself and you will discover there is so much more to you.

SEVEN. Be your own No.1 Fan – Don’t wait on others to validate you. Celebrate your accomplishments little or big.

EIGHT. Keep out negative people from your life – you will never get far in life surrounded by naysayer/critics.  You have outgrown them and its time to move on.

NINE. Do something new this year – why do the same old stuff, boring! Do something you have never done before. It will boost your confidence to a new level.

TEN. Count your blessings – you have come this far and there is still so much more to you. Watch out world, here you come! God has been good to you so count your blessings today

ELEVEN. Recognized and honor those who helped you on your journey thus far. You have not come this far by yourself. Take the time to honor them by showing your appreciation. It can be in form of a letter, card, phone call or gift.

TWELVE. Power of Focus – Women are famous for their multi-tasking abilities. There is power in focusing on one thing at a time. I have personally seen the results of this in my life. Learn to focus on one thing at a time, have stick-ability. Stop jumping all over the place, stick it out and finish strong

I see only great things in your future. You are amazing, be amazing.

      Yes, we must earnestly desire to grow deeper and stronger foundation in Christ. There is no room for dormancy, we know that the enemy does not sleep and he prowls about like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
