The new year comes with a lot of anticipations and goals. Some people even have new year resolutions, this is almost expected as we step into yet another three-sixty five days.
The obvious reason for any delayed action is usually the common excuses; no resources, insufficient time, being too busy and the list goes on. You will be surprised to find that these excuses are actually valid.
For me, one of my goals was to finish my book and get it published. I had worked on the manuscript for some years and thought finalising it would be an awesome way to start the new year.
Just a few days ago I was on phone with David, my UK based publisher confirming the edited manuscript I sent back to him with some legal agreements; it suddenly hit me, I finally did it.
Years of talking, explaining and giving excuses had come to an end, I can now move on to other bigger projects. While I am most certain, I would write more books, I am grateful that what was once a dream is now becoming a tangible reality.
Don’t wait, don’t give any reason whatsoever to prevent you from chasing your dream, even if you think you have accomplished a lot; dream bigger. There is always another hurdle if one isn’t visible find it. Whatever you do keep moving.
I took a keen interest in Shawn Carter A.K.A Jay-Z’s story, he is the only rap artist whose net worth is around $1billion, he did not complete high school or university. However, he has a financial acumen that only a few people can boast of.
When Uber was just a start-up, some people laughed at the idea of how a Ridesharing company can be viable without owning its own vehicles. A $2million invest during the start-up phase is now worth about $100 Million in the bank.
In this new year be dedicated and devoted to taking actions that would take you closer to your destination. Starting now is a must because you don’t know the hurdles that await you on this journey. Don’t give in to the dictates of friends, colleagues or even families, there is more out there for you but you have to go get it!
