How to Go into 2021 Feeling More Positive

Instead of making the usual New Year’s Resolutions this year, why not learn from the lessons of 2020 and make a promise to yourself to focus on what’s positive, important, and empowering in 2021?

The event of 2020 brought a lot of changes, some good, some not so good. But for me personally, it’s helped me think about what’s really important in my life and what I need to focus on.

Here’s how to go into 2021 feeling more positive.  

What do you want 2021 to look like?

A lot of things felt out of our control in 2020, but 2021 is your chance to focus on what you can control and what you want your future to look like. What are your main priorities? How will you live more by your values? How will you live a more authentic life, that makes YOU happy?

Let go of what is keeping you trapped

All of us have the potential to have an amazing life, but sometimes there are things that are keeping us stuck. This can be things we are very conscious of like having too many responsibilities or toxic relationships, or they can be unconscious, like negative beliefs or thoughts we have about ourselves. Make 2021 the year that you finally let go of what is keeping you trapped.

Take steps towards your dreams

Even if you feel like the world has stopped turning, it hasn’t, and it’s more important now than ever to pursue your dreams. Do you want to start a beauty career or get more qualified so you can offer more services to your clients? There’s nothing stopping you!

Have a plan

I remember having a plan for 2020 and it all went up in flames, but actually, things usually work out how they are supposed to. You can’t plan for every eventuality, but you can have a think about your beauty business goals for next year, what might make you life easier, and how you can feel better and more positive in 2021. Do you struggle with social media? Get some help. Do you want to offer clients more services? Book a course. Do you struggle with overwhelm? Promise that you’ll spend more time on self-care. Every baby step you take could make a huge difference to 2021 and beyond.

Make a promise to overhaul your life

If 2020 has shown us anything, it’s what we need more of in our lives and what we don’t need. Think about what doesn’t enhance your life and be ready to let it go.

Are there people who don’t support you and your dreams?

Are there toxic people who don’t add to your life, but take away from it?

Are you being kept trapped by negative and unhelpful thoughts?

Do you spend all of your time at work wishing you had another job?

Are you stuck in the past?

Make 2021 the year that you let the bad things go and focus on building the happy and fulfilling life that you want!

Why Now is the Perfect Time to Think About Your Hopes and Dreams

‘What now?’

Have you been asking yourself this question lately? We are living in such strange times. Our lives are upside down and we’re all having to adjust to a ‘new normal.’ We’re worried about our health, our loved ones, our businesses, our jobs, and the future.

There will come a time when things get back to some kind of normal, even if you can’t see it right now, and that’s why this is the perfect time to think about your hopes, dreams, and wishes for when that day comes, and beyond.

Most of us have had some time to slow down lately and reflect on what is really important to us and what we want for our lives. How do you want your future to look?

Here’s why now is the perfect time to think about your hopes and dreams.

The coronavirus has been a traumatic experience

There’s no getting away from it, the speed at which the virus has disrupted our lives has been traumatic, but the thing about traumatic experiences is no matter how terrible they seem on the surface, they do remind us about what is really important, and they can help us grow and move on to better things.

What the coronavirus has shown us

What really matters

There’s nothing like a global pandemic to focus your attention on what is really important; your health, your family, and your friends. We have found that we can actually live without many of the other things we held to be so important.

How important our relationships are

Traumatic experiences like this make us appreciate the people in our lives more, from the sister or brother who calls you to check in and make sure you’re okay, to the friend who leaves a thoughtful gift on your doorstep.

That there’s more to life and the possibility of bigger and better things

Something as life-changing as the coronavirus might have made you re-evaluate your life direction. You might be thinking about a new career path, or learning new skills so you can do what you’ve always really wanted to do. It can be devastating to lose a job or not know if your business will survive, but sometimes, the path is cleared because something better is in the pipeline for you.

How resilient you really are

While you may not feel so resilient when you’re in your pyjamas hiding away from the world in front of Netflix, I promise you, you’ll get through this. How do I know this? Because you’ve got through 100% of your worst days so far and you’re still here.

That the small things really are the big things

How many things have you realised you take for granted since the start of all of this? Just being able to go for a walk. Being able to get what you want from the supermarket. Being able to see your family and friends. When life gets busy and we’re chasing the next big thing, we forget that it’s actually the small things that matter, and they are the most important things.

Are you thinking about the future?

Now is the time to ask yourself how you want your future to look. Do you want to build a business when this is over, or learn a new skill so that you can offer new treatments to your clients who will be desperate to get back through your doors?

Take some time out while everything is in this strange limbo to plan ahead and browse our courses. There is always a future. There is always hope.
