Write | Inspire | Dream
Despite the catastrophe that was 2020, a lot of amazing things did happen for me. A dream I’ve had since I was a freshman in college became my reality. After months of disappointment, failure, and seriously depressing ups and downs, I figured out that no one was going to hand me my dreams on a platter. If I wanted the life I dreamed of, I had to get up off my ass and get to work. Now, after eight months into creating La.Rue and three months post-launch, I never felt like I’ve had a bigger purpose than now. As I write this, I can feel success at my fingertips, and I see my dreams coming to life. With that being said, I expect 2021 to be nothing short of the beginning of all my dreams coming true.
So, what do I expect and envision for 2021? Like I’ve said before, I want La.Rue to be a place you come to get to know me, build trust, and a bond. For me to build this with you, I have to be vulnerable and honest with you. I will share my dreams and goals, and as we progress through 2021, I will share my success and failures. I don’t want to be one of those people who only show you one side of their lives. If you’re along for the ride, I’m willing to share all aspects of who I am with you. So here we are, you and me, taking the journey of 2021 together. A journey of success, inspiration, and a little bit of failure. But what would success be without failure?
My Plan for 2021
If you’ve taken away anything from all the Intentional Living content so far, it’s that routine and planning are mandatory for success. So I’m sure you’d expect nothing less from me than a full proof plan for success in 2021. My plan for 2021 involves 3 key elements that will drive success in my life.
1. Resilience. Resilience to failure, to outside forces, and toxicity. Given what last year looked like, of course, some of the year’s difficulties will carry over to 2021. Things happen in the world every moment that are out of our control. The only way to deal with this is to assess the situation, understand how it affects you, and move forward.
2. Work Hard & Challenge myself. A major challenge I face as a business owner is being my own boss. I am my own accountability partner; the only person I have to face when I don’t work hard enough is myself. In 2021 disappointing myself isn’t an option.
3. Create Change & Live by Routine. As I’ve mentioned before, Intentional Living is all about being honest and challenging yourself to live fully. When you’re honest with yourself, you open yourself up to so many more possibilities in your life. In 2021, I will create a routine that will challenge me to succeed in all that I do. I will manifest positive energy and success. I will work hard and with determination to achieve.
My Goals for 2021
This coming year is going to be a year of growth. The dreams and vision I have for my life in 2021 involve a lot of hard work and dedication that will create great change in my life. Most of my goals center around growing La.Rue. Making a certain income from the brand, growing my list of subscribers, and working with brands and other bloggers who align with the La.Rue mission. As I said before, I am the person holding myself accountable to this dream, so I treat it as I would a full-time job. Every day, I wake up, go to the gym, come home, get ready for my day, and spend my 9-5 working on La.Rue. I plan on maximizing my goals for La.Rue into my reality.
The first step in achieving a goal is understanding the amount of work it will take to achieve it. People often underestimate the amount of time, work, and dedication it requires to achieve a dream. But, when you’re prepared and ready to put in the work, you see your dreams come to life. So, my goals for 2021 center around two of the most important things in my life, La.Rue and myself. Over the last few weeks, I’ve written out my goals, manifestations, and visions for 2021—all of if centering around how I can and will better myself and my brand. I set realistic, achievable goals that will challenge me and create success in my life.
My Vision for 2021
My last blog, How to Create Your 2021 Vision Board, goes into detail about the purpose of a vision board. In my life, vision boards have always been two things; a way to manifest the things and dreams you most desire and a motivational tool to remind you of what you’re working towards. This year, my vision board holds nothing back. I am working on manifesting every dream I have. Again, centering all the content around bettering myself and my life and continuing to build La.Rue. My vision board for 2020 was aimed towards actually creating La.Rue and building a brand I dreamed of running. Look where I am now, living that dream.
My vision for 2021 and for myself is of great success and achievement. I will live fully and without regret. Each day will be a step towards a new reality in which I live out my dream life. Consider your vision for 2021. Will you manifest success, wealth, happiness, prosperity, relationships? What will you change in yourself to create a better future? Let’s follow the journey of 2021 together.
