Looking Forward.

Portrait of Tammy Strobel

With the end of the year approaching, it’s only natural for many of us to take a moment to pause and reflect; to look back at how the year has been and whether we’ve stuck to the goals we set ourselves.

Remember those New Year’s resolutions you were determined to accomplish? Have you managed to achieve them? If you haven’t, what steps have you taken to get closer to those targets?

No matter how near or far away you are from achieving what you set out to, it’s important to remind yourself that things take time, and persistence and consistency is what counts in the end.

In the case of Anthony Mackie, it took him 20 years of hard work before he ended up being part of one of the biggest cinematic franchises in history. He didn’t have some Hollywood super soldier serum to fast track him to the peak of fame; what it took was some old-fashioned perseverance and positivity.

The year 2020 is just around the corner, so buckle up. Learn from the past, but be careful not to dwell on it too much, especially if things hadn’t panned out the way you expected. Set some realistic targets and work on improving yourself gradually. You may not necessarily become the next Captain America, but the next time you look back, you’ll see how far you’ve come. A fresh start awaits.
