Why the down under Aare already in the new year 2021?

Hi consumers of my platform and those who enjoy he disability sausage:
I want to wish you a happy New Year!
May 2021 be filled with lots of love, health, happiness, and achieved goals.
I truly wish that for you, readers and listeners.
This won’t just randomly happen.
You need to plan for it, put in the effort, and keep working on yourself.
No one is going to hand success to you in 2021. It’s all you.
You have to be proactive about it.
One thing I always do at the end of the year to ensure I’m proactive about my goals, growth, and performance, is to take some time for planning & reflection.
First, I look back on the year to see what lessons I’ve learned, what I've done right, and where I can improve for the next year.
Here are a few questions I’ve asked myself in the past few days:
• What did I learn this year? How did this year make me stronger and better?
• What 3-5 tasks and projects gave me the best business/financial results?
• What were my main sources of negativity and unhappiness?
• What were my main sources of positivity and happiness?
These questions help me shine a light on what I should do more and less of in the next year.
This helps to avoid the same energy-drainers year after year, while it also helps to stay focused on the things that significantly add to my health, happiness, and business success.
Then, I take the time to think about the next year. I mean, how can you expect to have your most successful year if you don’t plan for it?
Therefore, I ask myself the following questions:
• What will my main intention be for this year?
• If I could only achieve one goal this year, what would it be?
• Which tasks, projects, and activities should I focus more on for optimal health, wealth, and business success?
• How can I make sure all of the above will actually be done and doesn't just stay a wish? (for example, already plan certain tasks & activities in your schedule, reach out to an accountability partner, already commit to things by paying for it, signing up, making appointments, etc.)
These are the questions I’ve been asking myself these past days, and I highly encourage you to do something similar!
Remember, 2021 won’t magically become your most successful year.
You have to plan for it, put in the effort, and keep working on yourself.
You got this.
To Your Most Successful Year,
I believe in diversity and inclusion.
