8 Ways To Make The New Year A Distinguished One


The new year is fast approaching and to be more realistic, the new year is in a few days time. Many might be saying ''this is just another year that will come and go. The only difference in this year is that it is no longer 2014 but 2015. Same thing...same hustle ...same old story''.

But the truth is that, this coming year does not necessarily have to be like other years. With there being 365 days in a year, 12 months in a year, 52 weeks in a year, 8760 hours in a year, 525,600 minutes in a year, and 31, 536, 000 seconds in a year, you can really make this coming year a great and distinguished one.

You can spread and your wings and soar like an eagle (in this coming year with these 8 ways.

1) Be Specific

Don't go in search of anything or want to accomplish all the goals that possibly comes to your mind. Write down what you want. The truth is that, a man that wants anything from life settles for nothing. Being specific enables you know what exactly you want from life and enables you to focus solely in accomplishing that/those things.

If you are in school, what grades will you love to achieve by the end of your school year? A disticintion? A merit? If it is music you want to go into, what type of music? Gospel music, R&B? you need to be specific. If you want to write, what do you want to write? A book? An article? A website? If you want a car, what kind of car? A brand new car? A small car? What colour? etc

2) Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone

Now that you are specific with your goals and the things you want from life in the new year, you need to get out of your comfort zone to get it/them.
Like a quote says ''everything you want in life is in the other side of fear''. It is safe to also say that everything you want in life is in the other side of your comfort side. You need to step out of your comfort zone. Don't wait for cheese to be handed to you. Don't wait for cheese to come to you or be presented in a platter of gold for you. You need to stand up and go and get your cheese.

The truth is that, yes, you will never know if when you go out to get your cheese, if you will get it or not. In actual fact, chances are that if you go out to get it, you will get it. But if you don't, you will never get it and you will never know what it feels like to have it.

3) Work Harder Than You Usually Do

The bullet points below sums the above heading:
-Be Determined
- Be Relentless
- Be Consistent 
- Never Take NO or Failure As An Answer

For you to have an extraordinary year, you need to be determined to do extraordinary things. Remember, no one has ever gotten an extraordinary results with doing ordinary things. Extraordinary comes with just a little more push outside the ordinary. Ever heard this phrase before ''I know I did my best, but I would have done better than my best?'' 

A wise man once said ''hard work never kills and never ever says something is difficult if you have not worked hard for it''. 

4) Build And Develop Yourself

This is one priceless treasure/gift you can ever give yourself. Build and develop yourself physically, mentally, socially, spiritually, financially...all round. 
Read books. Build your mind. Sort for answers. Train yourself. Build yourself. Dvelop yourself. 

The awesome thing is that at this time and age, everything can be sourced for on the internet. Watch videos that will trigger something great you in. Read books that will motivate you to do better. Sort for answers. Dr Olukoya once said ''Whatever position you are in now, is not your best''. 

Don't just settle, keep improving yourself. Building and developing yourself imporves your thinking, improves your way of life, imporves how you see life, it improves how you carry and presnt yourself. 

5) Socialise 

The honest truth is that, you never meet anyone staying in your room watching TV. You meet people when you go out. You meet people when you socialise. Many atimes, you tend to meet people who will change your life forever when you socialise. Many atimes, you meet the answer to your prayers when you socialise. 

...Never underestimate the power of socialising.

6) Choose Your Friends Wisely

The people you associate with or keep company with have a great impact directly or indirectly on your greatness in life. 


This is extremely important and its importance cannot be overemphasised. This was explained in details here >>>   please do check it out. 

8) Connect To The Spirit More 

This sums up ALL the above points mentioned above. 
Be Prayerful, Be Thankful And Trust God More Than You've Ever Had. 

Above all, I wish you Happy, Glorious, Fulfilling, Miraculous, Fruitful, Productive And A God's Presence Filled New Year. 

Be Inspired.
