The New Year is slowly approaching and with it comes the many plans, goals, and new year resolutions. And I have prepared a list of 15 things you should remind yourself in 2018, things that are meant to bring you more peace, clarity, inner strength, and confidence in the new year.

15 Things You Should Remind Yourself In 2018

1. There is something you can do better than anyone else.

“Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.” ~ Rumi

In a world where so many people are cheap copies of other people, aspire to be original.

Aspire to be yourself. 

Know that there is something you can do better than anyone else. Seek to find what that something is and make a commitment to share your original work with the rest of the world.

You will be happy you did. 

2. Stop trying so hard to be perfect. 

“Perfectionism is a self-destructive and addictive belief system that fuels this primary thought: If I look perfect, and do everything perfectly, I can avoid or minimize the painful feelings of shame, judgment, and blame.” ~ Brené Brown

I know you think you should be perfect and holy by now.

But you’re not!

And you know what?

That’s perfectly fine!

You are only human. And you might as well let go of the need for perfection and allow yourself to screw up from time to time.

3. It’s not about being better than anyone else it, it’s about being better than you used to be.

Life isn’t a race. You are not in competition with anyone. And the only person you should aspire to be better than, is the person you were yesterday.

4. It really doesn’t matter what they think.

“A truly strong person does not need the approval of others any more than a lion needs the approval of sheep.” ~ Vernon Howard

It really does not matter what other people think of you. All that matters is what you yourself think of yourself. And if you yourself approve of yourself, then you have absolutely nothing to worry about.

5. Don’t explain. Don’t complain.

Don’t explain.

“Your friends do not need it, and your enemies will not believe you.” ~ Paulo Coelho

And don’t complain.

“What you’re supposed to do when you don’t like a thing is change it. If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it. Don’t complain.” ~ Maya Angelou

6. Talk less. Say more.

Be wise enough to talk less and say more.

Don’t just use words for the sake of using them. Use them because you have something to say. Use them because they will bring joy to those around you.

“He who does not know how to be silent will not know how to speak.” – Ausonius

7. You can always count on yourself.

No matter how hard your friends and family will try to be there for you in time of need, they can never be there for you all the time. But there is one person you can always count on to be there for you all the time, and that is you!

You can always count on yourself!

8. Every day is a new life. 

Each moment is a new beginning. Every day is a new life. And you can always let goof your yesterdays and make a fresh new start in life.

“This new day is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on the yesterdays.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

9. Live each moment mindfully.

Give your full attention to the things you do right now, the people you come in contact with, the places you walk into, the food you eat, the activities you engage in, etc..

Treat each moment, each person, and every little thing you do as if it were sacred.

Because they are!

“There exists only the present instant… a Now which always and without end is itself new. There is no yesterday nor any tomorrow, but only Now, as it was a thousand years ago and as it will be a thousand years hence.” ~ Meister Eckhart

10. Life is not to be lived by running away from things.

Life is not to be lived by running away from things, but by walking bravely into all situations, experiences, places, and relationships – no matter how dark and painful they may be, and by facing all our fears and demons. Because just as the wise Meister Eckhart once said it,

“Truly, it is in darkness that one finds the light, so when we are in sorrow, then this light is nearest of all to us.” ~ Meister Eckhart
