“THIS PANDEMIC RUINED MY TRAVEL PLANS. I WAS SUPPOSED TO START MY BUSINESS THIS YEAR. I CAN’T HAVE A REAL GRADUATION ANYMORE. I DIDN’T GET TO CHECK EVERYTHING OFF MY BUCKET LIST. THIS SUMMER IS A SHAM. COVID RUINED MY YEAR.”
**Disclaimer: I know people barely read nowadays or appreciate blogs anymore, so thank you to the few of you who are taking time to read this. I hope it is helpful and beneficial to your growth!**
These are all complaints I have heard throughout the months, all up to this very day. I am guilty of some, however I have realized that this year does not have to be a total “Cancelation“, well not just yet. You can take back control of 2020 and still WIN & SUCCEED during this world pandemic we are experiencing. Want to know how? Keep reading, I got you.
BEFORE READING PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THERE ARE STILL MORE WAYS FOR YOU TO REDEFINE AND TAKE BACK WHAT 2020 STOLE FROM YOU. KEEP IN MIND YOU HOLD THE KEYS TO THE REMAINING 4 MONTHS.
What can I do to take back control of 2020?
- Revisit your checklist or add to it.
Honestly this is better said than done, but it’s better when you’re actually doing it people. Revisiting your checklist can be beneficial because there are still some goals on your list worth completing. Example: I wanted to get back into school and complete my Master’s Degree, but I procrastinated and missed the deadline. Due to Covid-19/Pandemic Period my program was extended 3 months of ample time to apply. Guys, this is a program that is only offered in the Fall, so I would’ve had to wait a whole year to apply again. I mean, if this wasn’t a sign from God that good things can come from bad situations, I don’t know what was! Sometimes you have to just see the good in things even when it looks like it’s the end. So YES, when I advise you to revisit your goals and still check things off your list…I know what I’m talking about from experience!
2. Set daily, weekly, and monthly goals.
(1) Do you have a business or want to start a business?
(2) Do you have a blog or want to start one?
(3) Do you want to grow on your social media accounts?
(4) Do you want to build your relationship with God?
(5) Do you want to start saving towards your future?
(6) Do you want to start a new job? A new school venture?
(7) Do you want to move into a new home or buy a home?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you may want to read this section. Okay y’all, setting reminders and making schedules can be time consuming and dreary, trust me I know! I’ve tried and gave up sometimes, but honestly it’s a step into the right direction. I know that planning efficiently produces the best outcomes, that is why I suggest you plan and jot down your daily, weekly and monthly goals. Whether it’s if you want to have 10 more followers by next month or $100 more dollars added to your savings account, set the goals and make it come to fruition.

3. Do more of what brings your heart peace, joy and happiness.
What brings you absolute joy? I mean what makes you feel good inside when you do it, see it, or create it? Ask yourself this question and dwell on your response for a minute.
Take a minute.
Okay, I hope you were able to answer those two questions. With everything being on a somewhat standstill, this is really the time to just go for whatever it is you been wanting to try without thinking twice about it. You love creating things, do it. Turn it into a business. You love learning? Amazing, go get your education. You love writing? Cool, start a blog or write a book. Start at it. You have a talent you been hiding? Share it with the world. Create your own platform where your viewers can enjoy it. The possibilities are endless.
PRO TIP: GO FOR IT AND DO NOT TURN BACK. WE ARE TOO AFRAID OF BEING CRITIQUED OR BEING TOLD NO SOMETIMES. THE TIME IS NOW TO JUST GET OUT THERE (NOT LITERALLY OBVIOUSLY) BUT GET OUT THERE AND DO THAT THING YOU WANTED TO ALWAYS DO!
I really hope you take the leap in making your dreams come true, live better and goals checked off. Don’t beat yourself up, you got this! Thank you for reading. xoxo MJ.
