A brand new year lies just around the corner. It offers a fresh start, new opportunities, and the chance to create a better year than the last. But that doesn’t mean who you truly are – or who you’re becoming – has to change.
This past year reinstilled values that had slipped to the wayside. It taught us hard lessons, challenged us over and over again, and reminded us that life is too short to waste any moment. We’ve learned, we’ve grown, and we’ve become more reflective and compassionate as individuals.
Going into the New Year, our wish for you is to continue becoming who you are meant to be, while embracing who you truly are. 2020 was a wake up call in its times of isolation, and most of us had New Year Resolutions that simply couldn’t be achieved. But it taught us to love and accept our true selves, flaws and all, and to accept that life is unpredictable. The best thing we can do for ourselves, and for the world, is work toward being the best we can be each and every day – treating ourselves as we do others: with love, compassion, and kindness.
To help motivate and inspire you in the New Year, our Elite Leaders offer words from the heart:
“Going into the New Year, I’m going to continue using my favorite saying ‘Have the Best Day Ever,’ everyday. Because if we all treated everyday like it was our last, our lives would all be pretty amazing! Tomorrow is never guaranteed so live each day like it’s your last!”
“The TRUTH: no one needs you to be perfect, in fact it’s working through and despite your imperfections that can be the most helpful and inspiring. So stop waiting. No more hiding, Own all of you and your story and use it to help others feel seen and create positive change. Even on the bad days… Never ever, ever settle.”
“You can always grow and change into the person you want to become. You are never stuck where you are, you can always be moving forward towards where you want to be. Blossom into the best version of yourself.”
“If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that life is fragile and can change in an instant. So there’s no better time than now to start taking risks and creating a life you truly want to live. In the end, you’d much rather look back and say ‘well, I tried’ rather than ‘what if?’”
“Make it a great day! Go into each day with intention and purpose knowing YOU get to decide YOUR mindset and actions to show up for yourself!”
“How you do ANYTHING is how you will do EVERYTHING. You can’t expect to be successful or achieve your goals if you can’t do the little things right. Focus on making small changes, these small changes will lead to big results. You got this!”
“2021 is a year of TRULY chasing what my gut is telling me to do. Taking massive risks // chances & truly following my heart! EVEN if that means falling down a couple times. Because at the end of the day - we only have ONE chance at living a life we love. Why not live it to the absolute fullest & go after the things we want? Listen. To. Your. Gut!”
“Everything you’ve experienced in life so far is serving you a purpose. You may not understand what that purpose is in this current moment, but in the end, everything will work out in your favor.”
“Make sure if you choose to do something for the New Year, it’s because YOU want to! Make sure YOU'RE passionate about these new goals! Don’t make your list of goals long and intimidating, start small and focus one step at a time! And know they don’t all have to be new things, you can always work on perfecting the things you do now.”
