5 Things I Need to Work on 2019: Do a better job at accepting failures. Challenges are only as difficult as I make them - If I want to succeed, I need to conqure any obstacles that come my way and come out on top. Value my time. Time is running out. Every second counts. While they are out partying, I need to be training, practicing and learning. Instead of entertainment, I need to focus on education and knowledge. Wake up with a game plan and execute.  Take action and make things happen. I'm not going to sit around and talk about ideas. I am going to execute and then talk about how cool it was or how much of a crappy idea it was and move forward. I have to practice making it happen and build that mental muscle. Stop the self limiting talk. Stop telling myself I can't, stop telling myself I'm not good enough, stop telling myself I am not that person. Because when I do tell myself that, It becomes true. Same goes with the opposite. Stop the apathy. Be curious, ask questions and find answers. Don't stop because I don't understand something. Google it. It is soon to be 2019 - if you can't find an answer there is nobody to blame but yourself.

Note to self: How to kick ass in 2019: Do not focus on becoming motivated, focus on commiting and finishing something. Do not rely on others to help you achieve what you want. Teamwork is awesome, but always have a contingency plan. Your sucess is up to you. Not others. Make a gameplan. Don't just wing it - target a goal and knock it out. This builds up practice for following through. Just like like lifting weights, you have to train yourself and eventually you get stronger. Follow through and finish a plan. Don't be afraid to use your imagination. It is a gift to be creative - use it and embrace it. The best ideas come from the imagination, not the rational/analytical part of the brain. Think outside the box and by no means do not hesitate to dream big. Get rid of toxic people and surround yourself with people who you want to be. You are a product of your environment. If you hang around people who are doing nothing, chances are you will be doing the same. Find a motivated group of people, learn from them and be like them. Stop thinking negative about yourself. You are a bad ass. If you think otherwise you will not feel like one. Tell yourself you are awesome and you will feel awesome. If you tell yourself you are a piece of giraffe shit and you will feel like one. You are what you think. Have fun, smile and live. Lose that stress, it clouds your judgement and makes it difficult to make sound decisions. Take time to do something you love - it is for the best. Take breaks, go on vacation and clear that mind.

There are three ways to fall: 
1)Braced for impact 
2) Face first unexpectedly 
3) Flat on your ass

Regardless of how you fell, you have to get back up.

One of the most important things you can learn in life is how to fall, dust yourself off, and get back in the game.

The people you admire the most are the ones that got back up and persisted.  Tag a friend who needs to get back in the game

It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting. -Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist 
I feel like it is easy for us to under appreicate the excitement life offers through the mystery of not knowing what will happen tomorrow, next week or next year. 
Iimagine for a second how different your life would be if you already knew your future. Excitement wouldn't exist; Life would be meaningless.

If you could see the outcome of your life flash in front of you, would you watch it?

Stop trying to create the perfect reality of your life on social media, and start being true to yourself and authentic to your audience. Face your own problems so you can become a role model to others as they solve their own. @danschawbel 
Thank you Dan, for this brillant passage. 
I post a lot of life quotes and write a lot of inspirational content - not because I've mastered it, but because I am horrible at it. I find something I struggle with, read about it, practice it, and tie it to a piece of artwork that I make. When I write a quote or a passage, it is to myself and others who have areas in life they want to improve upon. I practice what I preach; but I am no means perfect at it. I stumble through life the same as every single one of you. I am truly humbled that all of you are learning with me, trying to become a better person and help others - it is something good that social media allows us to provide to the world outside of a misleading mask to portray a perfect life. No matter how much money you have, how many followers you have, how famous you are, or how great your life looks on social media, you're still human and have problems. Be authentic.

Mentally strong people do not shy away from change. As @amymorinauthor brilliantly explains in her awesome book 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do. 
Change is hard, it makes us feel uncomfortable and the second our brain feels a change coming, it raises a flag and says: Whoa hold up, we were fine with what we were doing why are we changing it up? The brain raising the flag is part of our survival instincts, but it is often misinterpreted as a sign to stop the change. Don't look at it as a sign to stop, but as a marker that your life is beginning a new chapter. When something is changing and your brain raises that flag followed by a stream of anxiety, simply say: Thank you for your concern brain; however, I am going to move forward and you will eventually accept this change as the norm. Just like moving into a house - the first few nights are foreign and feels like hostile territory. Eventually it becomes your home and place of comfort.

It's hardly possible to build anything if frustration bitterness and a mood of helplessness prevail - Lech Walesa

If you go into something with a negative mindset, chances are that negative outcome you weren't hoping happens, ends up happening. A lot of people don't realize they attract negative events in their life because of the way they view the world. If you constantly focus on the negatives, that is all you will see.

It's easy to stand with the crowd; It takes courage to stand alone. Great ideas rarely come from conformity, they more often than not spawn from thinking outside of the box, pushing the limits and never accepting impossible for an answer. This means stepping away from the meidocre/average crowd and working things from a different perspective, your own perspective. That perspective is yours, no one can take that from you - embrace it and do not be afraid of standing alone if people retreat. The same mediocre people who walked away and doubted you will come back with their hands out saying they knew you could do it all along. Smile, because that's when you know you've made it.

Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That’s its balance.
― Osho

The holiday season can be a pretty rough and dark time for some people. Don't forget to reach out to someone and let them know you are thinking of them if you don't have the pleasure of spending time with them.  It would mean the world.
