Trying new things, the 2019 motto

07 December 2018 | Columns

A new year is dawning upon us and we will soon be reading about New Year's resolutions and things that will be left behind in 2018. Regardless of what is being left or what is being picked up, I would like to see different things trending next year.

Things like risks in relationships, business ventures or sporting activities should definitely trend.

Have you ever tried stepping out of your comfort zone and it sort of freaked out the people that are around you just a little bit?

Let's go for that kind of spirit in the new year.

Trying new things has never been easy. But how then will we learn our limits? Here is the thing, you have to let go, step out and try new things. You will be shocked at how you have been holding back your potential for so long and your confidence levels. Trying new things also teaches you how to appreciate yourself.

The thing about trying new things is that they also help you break out of your ordinary lifestyle. You need to come to a space of peace with making mistakes and for sure, learning from them too.

What I'm trying to say is we all have to be stop being comfortable.

This is because only two things can happen, you make it or you fail. When you fail you learn and so next time you try again, you have the skills to help you make it.

Eventually, you will stop doubting yourself and even the people around you will have no choice but to accept you.

Why? Because you are happy with that new you and finally your resolutions can all be ticked off for the first time!

Let's also take the culture of helping each other over to the new year.

I swear it has been proven that sharing or helping someone will not make you less successful.
