January has almost come to a close but I have finally realized what my New Year’s Resolution is all about. Self-Discipline.

Throughout the last few years I’ve felt like I didn’t know what to focus on. I mentioned this in my post, Embrace Your Multipotentialities. I have many, many interests and I enjoy exploring my talents and how I can bring them together but I do not challenge myself enough.

If I’m going to own the title of a Multipotentialite, I have to live and breathe it. I have to voluntarily live the hard way.

I often think to myself how I want to start my college years all over again. I research all of these amazing opportunities and degrees and think, “Man, that’s it!” “If only that existed when I started.” But the truth is, even if it did exist, I wouldn’t have found it then. I was supposed to experience what I did in both my undergrad and masters program. The knowledge I gained and friendships I made helped me evolve into who I am now…even if I still don’t know where I will end up. I can’t go back, so I must move forward.

Deep down, I know who I want to be.

I want to be strong. I want to be fit. I want to talk the talk and be the person people go to for help. I want to be a good friend, daughter, and sister. I want to work with technology and people, but have time for myself too. I want to sing and I want to read. I want to learn things and stick with them.

But I give in to temptations. I have a serious case of FOMO. I like the instant gratification of indulging in sweets or binge watching a show. I enjoy listing ideas but fail to execute without deadlines or pressure. I am too comfortable being alone.

I need a plan of self-discipline. One that aligns better with my goals. This is probably one of the the most important parts of becoming ultimate and I let it get out of hand!

The more we live the hard way to easier life will seem when hardships arise.

2018 is about self-discipline and living on purpose.

“The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.”
