Ask Yourself: How Can I Make 2019 the Best Year Possible?

>> Feb 1, 2019



From your love life to your career, there are many aspects that make you unique. However, no matter how successful or happy you are, there’s always room for improvement. This could be something as simple as drinking more water or taking steps to boost your self-confidence. Before you shrug the idea off, take a few minutes to ask yourself if you’re truly comfortable. If you find the answer is no, now is a great time to do something about it.

Self-Confidence

Self-confidence is just as important as experience when it comes to your personal and professional endeavors. If you don’t have it, you may be less willing to reach outside of your comfort zone, which can ultimately hold you back. Think about the people you know who are the most confident. What do they do that makes them different from you? Chances are, they remind themselves of their worth each day, set realistic goals so they can measure — and revel in — their progress, and make self-care a priority.

Career

While everyone can expect to have stressful days at work, if these pile up to the point where you dread getting up in the morning, you may be unhappy at your chosen place of employment without even realizing it. Peter Jones of the Job Network explains that not caring about the quality of your work, constantly being late, and isolating yourself from your peers and coworkers are all signs that something is amiss at the office. Even if you’re not unhappy, improving your career can increase your overall satisfaction. Plus, things such as getting a mentor and improving your professional network can open up professional opportunities.

Education

Perhaps you regret never finishing college and want to go back to school for an advanced degree. If you find that your lack of educational experience is holding you back, you’re not alone. Thousands of working adults go back to school every year, and a degree may be closer than you think since many academic institutions offer credit for life experience. Unfortunately, college isn’t cheap, and even if you live in a state that offers financial assistance for adults, there may be limited spots available. StudentLoanHero.com asserts, however, that there are many scholarship and grant opportunities available for adults

Health

It doesn’t matter if you’re 25 or 75, there’s always room to improve on your health. This means practicing portion control, prioritizing nutrition, exercise, and doing things to enhance your mental health, such as socializing or speaking up for yourself. If you don’t already have a gym membership, look for a fitness center with exercise classes near you. This can help keep you on track and will serve as motivation on the days you’d rather lie around in bed. It may sound cliché, but it’s true that you only have one body, and it’s up to you to take care of it.

Relationships

It’s unfortunate, but we often stay in unhealthy relationships out of habit. However, if your significant other doesn’t make you feel like the best version of yourself, then it’s time to reevaluate your partnership. If you don’t feel like an equal, don’t share the same goals, or can’t match your partner’s words with their actions — they say they love you, but they often act otherwise — then it may be time to go solo for a while. If you want to break the chains of codependency, you’ll need to become self-aware. Some therapists recommend journaling and questioning your personal beliefs as a way to get to know yourself.

There is no shame in admitting you need to make improvements. Look at all of the aspects of your life, and don’t be afraid to question your circumstances. It may be scary, but sometimes breaking out of your comfort zone is the best way to become a better version of you.
