The end of the first half of 2023 is upon us. Quickly evaluate how you have done so far, and restrategize for the next 6 months of this year. Nothing changes except we change things, and all it takes is some introspection and a decision.
All right, team, gather ’round! Take a knee and listen up. We’re halfway through this game, and I’ll be honest, we’re not where we want to be right now. But that’s alright because we still have another half to turn things around. We have the power to change the course of this year and show everyone what we’re made of. So let’s dig deep, find that fire within us, and give it everything we’ve got.
This last half was going well, except for a few distractions here and there. We need to learn to look away from bad news, other people’s gist, and other useless trending topics that do not affect the purpose of our lives. Let’s stay focused on what is important and be careful not to sow seeds we don’t intend to reap.
In moving forward, first, remind yourself of your “WHY?”. Why did you set the goals you set, why are you in the career or business you are in, why are you gunning for the things you are gunning for? Remind yourself that all your life has been preparation for now! Remind yourself of the people whose lives are connected to yours and who will be excited if you win. Don’t let yourself down, and don’t let your community down.
To get from where we are to where we want to go, we need a strategy. If the strategy you had before was not working, it’s time to revamp it. There are a few tips that work for your strategy, take them. Stick to the fundamentals, trust in your training, and play with confidence. Remember, we win as a team, and we lose as a team. We support each other, communicate, and work together to achieve our goals. Find the pieces of the strategy puzzles that are missing for you. Is your goal clear to you, make them. Are the fundamentals clear to you, seek help. Trust your training, be confident, and find your community. This may sound bizarre but know that we usually are just one person away from our total transformation.
It’s not only important to have a strategy and to be willing to execute. It’s also about attitude. It’s about resilience. We may be down right now, but that doesn’t define us. Champions rise from the ashes of defeat. So, wipe away any doubts, negativity, and mistakes from the first half. This is a fresh start. This is our moment to shine.
In this second half, I want you to play with heart, play with passion, and play with a relentless desire to win. I want you to push beyond your limits and show the world what you’re truly capable of. Every challenge, every client, every opportunity — it matters. Remember that success isn’t always measured by the scoreline but by the effort you put forth. Put in the effort that you can be proud of, and trust God with the outcomes.
May the rest of the year be the best of the year for you. Amen.
