5 Mistakes You Don't Want to Repeat in 2018

So you made a few mistakes last year and there are things you’d change if you could go back.

The good news is that you can start over and make 2018 YOUR year!

1. Avoiding risk instead of embracing it

It’s hard to have the life you want without taking risks. Of course, there’s always the chance of failure, but that’s what makes it a risk. It could lead to great experiences and exciting adventures!

2. Gaining followers instead of friendship

Do you check your phone as soon as you wake up, while driving (please don’t do this), and when you go to bed? Take the time to actually be with the people around you and get to know them, not just through a screen.

3. Following the crowd instead of leading it

When you do what everyone else does, you can only go as far as they go. Your CV will look the same as everyone else’s and you won’t have any unique experiences. Walk your own path!

4. Competing with others instead of yourself 

Don’t waste energy competing with others, just focus on being the best you possible. Keep this quote in mind, “the only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday”.

5. Having regrets instead of learning lessons

The past is the past. Dwelling on and regretting past mistakes is a whole new mistake. Take whatever lesson you can from everything that happens and work on moving forward no matter what.
