You are your own best bet! Nobody cares about you, your life, your career and your success more than you – so don’t make the mistake of putting your future into someone else’s hands. That is not to say that you won’t achieve success with and through others – we almost always do. But it is to say that your success is not up to others.
If you completely own the notion that You are your own best bet, you will take charge of and responsibility for how this year and this decade unfolds. That is not to say that the external factors of the world will not affect you at all – but you can decide just how much they affect you. You are the captain of your own mind. You are responsible for your state of mind. You are the boss of your intentions and expectations. Your expectations are your responsibility. What you put out is what you get back – so make sure that you get clear on your highest intentions and expectations in order to set yourself up for success.
My motto / theme / clarion cry for this whole decade is #20Plenty. If you live in South Africa, you will have 101 really good reasons why that is totally ridiculous. But we can each decide what we are going to sign up for. I am simply not signing up for a decade of struggle. I am signing up for #20Plenty. Make sure that your highest intentions and expectations set your #20Plenty up for success. Imagine if every single one of us had this mindset? We could and would create miracles!
Decide what you will and won’t buy into or embrace – I am simply not buying into any talk of recession or national collapse. Decide what you will and won’t allow – I will not allow vile, racist vitriol to pollute my Twitter or Facebook feeds. Decide how you will show up and what you will not allow in yourself – I will make a point of noticing all that I have to be grateful of every day, and will not allow myself to be drawn into other people’s “ain’t it awful” conversations.
