1. Learn to share your love
When I wrote ‘love’ I didn’t mean expressing love to a partner. Love is a wonderful feeling that can do miracles. We all have, but not all of us show and share it. If you’re a shy person who has trouble showing love, you need to learn to stop feeling uncomfortable and awkward every time you say ‘I love you’ or help others. In 2016, share your love with anyone you know and don’t know. Share your love with animals. Express your true feelings. Don’t hide them. You won’t regret it at the end of the new year.
2. Become the leader of your own life
You don’t need to be a leader in the workplace but you have to be the leader of your own life. People will never stop talking and gossiping so if you really want to do something special to you or the whole world, do it. Don’t wait for permission and approval. This is a waste of time. Focus on your decision and believe in yourself. You’re capable of doing just anything a human being can do. Once you become the leader of your own journey, your life will become a lot better.
3. Know your next move
Whatever you do, know your next move. Set your new year’s resolutions and consider the ways to achieve them. Consider the backup plans too. If plan A fails, you need to have plan B and plan C. Knowing your next move will help you be more productive in 2016 and ring in 2017 with no regrets at all.
4. Get rid of old stuff
Be it a resentment, an ex, a mistake, or a friend who hurt you, get rid of the past. Leave all the old things and feelings in 2015 so that you could turn over a new leaf in 2016. Delete the social media account that spoils your mood whenever you check it, say goodbye to people who are trying to ruin your life, quit the job you hate, throw away the old things that make you feel sad and forget about all of the mistakes and failures you faced in 2015. A new year is a new opportunity to make your life happier, and you won’t be able to do it if you don’t let go of the old stuff that’s been destroying your life for years.
5. Let negative people walk away from you
At some point or another even your best friend or your sibling may betray you. Sometimes the closest people can become our worst enemies and no matter what we do, we can’t change them. If someone walks away from you, let them do it. Holding onto them is a waste of time and effort. In 2016 make sure you’re surrounded with positive people. One positive friend is better than three negative ones.
6. Spread your wings
Stepping outside the box is more than just a cliche. We refuse to take the risks because we believe we can’t do it. Remember, you CAN do it. Don’t underestimate yourself. Want to travel the world? Volunteer? Move to another city? Quit job? Ditch excuses and welcome change in your life. Any change breeds a sort of growth. You will have no regrets once you reach your risky goal. Keep going when others stop. Set the goals that most are afraid to reach. Spread your wings and show others how happy and lucky you are.
7. Give your power to the positive possibilities in front of you
The key to living a life with no regrets is a huge motivation to do anything life offers. Stop listening to the negative voice chattering in the back of your head. Say yes to things you typically talk yourself out of. Focus on the reasons to continue, not to stop.
With 2016 upon us, we have to say goodbye to the things that made us miserable in 2015. We have to let go of everything that’s holding us back. This is a sure way to live 2016 and many years to come with no regrets. Are you satisfied with what you accomplished in 2015? Have you already set your new year’s resolutions?
