While it might not seem like it right now 2020 is going to be a great year for you. The way you move forth right now is going to set the mood for everything to come. 

Before 2020 gets here there are some very important things that each of us needs to work on. These are things that will allow us to leave the past in the past and look to the future with an open mind. While the things happening in our lives right now might seem hectic and holidays are always seemingly insane, you can still work to better yourself properly through it all.

Below I am going to go over some things you need to do before 2020 gets here. These are things that could take just a few minutes or several days depending on where you are in your own mind. If you do these things properly and truly commit to getting them done the beginning you face in 2020 will be marvelous.

12 Things You Need To Do To Create A Great Beginning In 2020:

1. Stop making excuses.

Stop making excuses for yourself and for other people in your life. If you don’t want to do something, don’t do it. If you think someone is being shady, call them out. Stop playing everything down so much.

2. Think about the mistakes you’ve made and let them all go.

We all make mistakes, no one on this planet is perfect. You are allowed to mess up as long as you learn the lesson that mess up has to offer you. Let go of the things you cannot change.

3. Stop doing things that make you truly unhappy.

If it doesn’t make you happy anymore, stop doing it. You don’t owe anyone anything and you don’t have to keep making yourself miserable to keep other people content. Be true to who you are.

4. Do not close yourself off from opportunities.

There will be lots of doors closing as 2019 comes to an end but also lots of doors opening. Face those opening doors with optimism. There are tons of opportunities headed your way that you need to embrace.

5. Cut out people who only want to hold you back.

Stop wasting your time on people who only want to bring you down and try to control your life. If they’re holding you back they do not deserve your attention or your efforts. Only make time for people who want to help you grow properly.

6. Figure out what you want the most out of 2020.

Start thinking about what you want out of the year to come. Where do you want to be? Do you have any serious goals you need to accomplish as the coming year unfolds?

7. Spend some of your time reflecting.

Don’t be afraid to sit down and think about the past for a little while. Reflecting is important, we have to do it before moving forward. This reminds us of all we have gone through.

8. Let go of unrealistic expectations.

Stop holding onto your unrealistic expectations. You are not a superhero and you cannot do everything. There have to be limits set and there is nothing wrong with coming to terms with that.

9. Take the time to care for and love yourself.

Spend some of your time taking care of yourself. Show yourself the attention and efforts you deserve. If you’re not taking care of yourself you can’t take care of anyone else properly.

10. Figure out where you currently stand in your life.

Find out where you are in your own life and what direction you want to head. From here you can plan things out and work to figure out just how the next few months will unfold. Sure, this also has its limits and can change but it gives you a good outline to go by.

11. Appreciate those who have been there for you the most.

Take the time to remind those who matter the most to you that you are thankful to have them in your life. This world is full of bad people and if you’ve found some good ones to be by your side, you’ve accomplished a lot. Those people need to know that they matter to you.

12. Break free from your comfort zone.

Spend some of your time breaking free and doing things you normally might not do. Your comfort zone is not something you can hide inside of forever. Think outside the box.
