How to Mentally Prepare For 2018

We’re a week into 2018 and I’m still trying to figure out how I feel. It’s a year where I want change and success and peace, and to get there I need to prepare for all that’s going to happen for the next 365 days.

Why I Do Focus Words Instead of Resolutions

If you’ve looked at social media in the last 48 hours you’ve likely seen the word “resolution” a few thousand times. With the beginning of a new year comes the beginning of resolutions, and honestly, I’m not in the club. This year I’m all into focus words.

TE’s Best & Worst of 2013

TE Best of 2013 Celebration

Well Enthusiasts, we’ve gotten through another year. 2013 was a biggie, for more than one reason. I reached goals I never thought were possible and you’ve been here to see them all. And, in true reflection spirit, I thought we should take a trip down memory lane to the best (and worst) of Teenage Enthusiasm’s 2013.

To a Good 2012

Happy New Year!

This New Years is especially special. It is Teenage Enthusiasm’s one year anniversary! What a milestone, huh?

The whole thing about new years and anniversaries and even just getting older is that we want to improve. We want to become even better than previous years. That’s why we make New Year’s resolutions. And I’m no different. I want to become bigger and better than I was in 2011. I want to be HUMUNGOUS!

Most resolutions are health-related. Wanting to lose weight, eat healthier, stop smoking, etc. But some resolutions are completely different. Some people want to publish their manuscript. Or start their own cupcake business. Personally I believe that a person should have a mix of the two. Like quitting alcohol and learning a new language.

The hardest part of making a resolution is keeping it, as any person who has made a resolution can tell you. It’s unfortunate, yes, but it can happen if you aren’t motivated enough. So I guess the true success (though not for every resolution) is self-motivation. If you are in it for the gold, the likeliness of you accomplishing your resolution goal is very high.

I hope you have a fantastic 2012!
