Resolutions. I hate making them since I turned 30 years old. I could not commit myself towards fulfilling or achieving them. And when I found myself failing at following through with those commitments I set out for myself, I became discouraged and disillusioned.
Since then, I found a far more superior and effective way of ensuring that my new years were more exciting and more expansive. I wanted my brand new year to be a sandbox concept. Where I explored each location with purpose and intent.
Here are 20 top questions you might wanna ask yourself this 2020, to keep you in the game of life.
Why is my 2020 going to be different than my previous years?
How will my 2020 shape out in the first quarter, second and so forth?
Who are the people that I want to partner up more closely in 2020?
Who are the people that I want to discard and absolve myself from this 2020?
Which areas of my strengths will I work on in a more focused manner this 2020?
Which areas of my weaknesses will I continue to be aware of but not to be distracted by this 2020?

Want to know why I believe questions are important?
Your parents will never tell you this. Your teachers will never share this. Your friend will deny this. All of them will never ever say this. But I will.
Confidence is a contact sport.
You will never grow in confidence if you sit on your couch, scrolling through those Instagram and Tinder accounts. You will not build your charisma bank, just by listening to Anthony Robbin’s motivational audios. You are most likely not gonna make heads turn by keeping your mouth shut.
How do I know this? Cause I’ve been in that gutter of not being cool or confident before. And if you are pretty much in that gutter now, am sure you can relate and feel the anguish of missing out on fun, enthralling and seductive social exchanges. You probably have those moments of going,”Damn, I should have just smiled back…”
Okay, I feel you. So lemme give you a quick run on how you can get up to speed on that confidence. In 30 days? You bet. Cause I did it.
The year has just started. You had pinned your goals, nicely on your wall. You had prepared your schedules. You had also signed up for a gym membership. In short, you are prepared to make this year, awesome.
But a message came on your Whatsapp,
“Are you sure that gym membership will be fully utilized?“said a pal.
Another pal, gave a grinning emoticon on your Facebook status, when you mentioned that you are planning your week.
Another friend just laughed out loud when you said you had your goals written down.
Your awesome year just got deflated.
Goalless Zombies Are Everywhere
Ever heard about good energy being infectious? Well, so is bad and negative energy. And goalless zombies, will want to sink their teeth in you with those bad parasitic viruses. While you may want to look at your world from the perspectives of being in Eden, be aware that energy sapping zombies are aplenty. Just like a bad week of The Walking Dead, these zombies sometimes come in the form of your closest friends, loved ones or perhaps your social weekend football mates. Of course, being the good guy or gal that you are, you probably do not have that much desire in you to just chop off their heads. You may run, but yeah, they’ll still try to lumber up to you.
