Longish Sappy Post ahead… so you’ve been warned.
I won’t be the least bit offended if you don’t read it but I needed some place to put this in order to hold myself accountable.
I’ve seen all these authors I admire choosing words year after year and each time I say to myself “that sounds like a good thing to work on” and I set my goal for the year to be the same.

I’m not them and my business is not the same as theirs for a list of reasons. It wasn’t until this morning when I saw another author I admire post their word that I realized I’ve been doing myself a disservice for the last four years. That by not choosing my own goals I was short changing myself.
𝑊ℎ𝑦 𝑖𝑠 𝑡ℎ𝑖𝑠 𝑦𝑒𝑎𝑟 𝑑𝑖𝑓𝑓𝑒𝑟𝑒𝑛𝑡?
After not reaching the goals for the third year straight I’ve had my moment of clarity. I was ready to quit a few months ago. Finish writing the year and then closing up shop and try to forget all the reasons I started this journey to begin with. I’ve spent so much time worrying about others and their perception of me that I forgot who I was.
Yes, I’ve made a million posts about this same issue many times over the years but it wasn’t until this morning that I had a mentality shift. That by not choosing my own path toward success, I was holding myself back from succeeding.
