Better Second Half

I share a lot of my achievements on here, and sometimes overlook my set-backs. Its also important to share those, but I tend to abstain as I don't find it beneficial to the reader, and I'd like my content to be entertaining or enriching. I know there was a bit of a backlash following my 'iOvershare' post, but I think its important to reiterate the fact that I don't see a wholesome problem with sharing deep dark secrets, so far as there's a purpose or a solution is reached at the end.

Hence why I thought it was important to share this post with you guys. Its the second half of the year and its important to look back retrospectively to evaluate your progress and highlight where there is room for improvement. Its general knowledge that women find it hard to be as critical inwardly, as they are about their appearance, in comparison to men. So I'd like to empower females reading this post to revisit NYE goals, or to-do's you set for 2014 and tick what has been accomplished and pinpoint areas where you have failed. It is not my intention to depress you, rather to enlighten you as to areas in your life where you have fallen short & how you can dramatically alter it so come December 2014, there wont be any room for regret and disappointment.

I loathe e-discipleship, which is why I abstain from ordering you about means of achieving this or that. As a Christian, I believe God gave us the freewill to live our lives as we please. I tend to steer clear of self-help books, as a result. However, there are tried and tested means of achieving your goals, and one of them is mapping it out strategically and setting a timelimit for each task. This works for me, but the generic means of identifying this mechanism of success is SMART: Specific; Measurable; Attainable;Realistic; Timely (watch vlog for further details).
It's critical to acknowledge life isn't a series of up's, and leave room for diasppointments and set-backs. I may not always share the lows, but I find that focusing on the positive gets me through the negative, and thats how I succeed. That may not necessarily work for you. I know some very accomplished individuals who are spurred on by their failures and paste rejection letters on their walls as constant reminders of their adversaries, and motivation to try harder each day. Acknowledge that you are different from the next, and pick what works best. But know that sitting & nodding to this post is not enough. Get a pen and write down 3 goals you'd like to achieve by the end of the year, and map out realistic means of getting there. It works!
BLEURGH!! Be SMART about your goal, because success isn't handed out like the dole.
