Let 2018 chase you


2018 is here and with every new year the breath of optimism, starting a fresh and the chance to improve on last years shortcomings. 

The beginning of most things is very special. Whether it be starting a family, starting a new venture, beginning to travel or the beginning of a new year, each provide a fantastic opportunity for you to put in the right effort to achieve new heights. This excitement is derived from being able to work towards your purpose & mission.

Enthusiasm is extremely high in January, February and maybe even March but somehow we lose that enthusiasm, it seems as though it decimates through the rolling months. Before you know, it's new year's eve and you're talking about your resolution for the following year.

So what are some things we can do to ensure the year ends as strong as it started?

What can you do in order to give yourself the best chance of success in 2018?

Here are our top 5 tips to get you going!

      1. Get a journal!

At first you might think this to be something that adds no value, you would be wrong. Big wins as glorious as they are hard to come by, instead documenting smaller victories allows you to boost self confidence and in turn achieve overall happiness!

  1. Foster a positive attitude

Science tells us that a risk taking and exploring attitude is often suppressed when negativity plays into one’s mind. So to simply keep this in mind and be self aware we are further able to build our way towards success.

  1. Develop a sense of style

Style is never just about the product, it's about putting the best version of yourself forward, allowing you to have the confidence in everything that you do.

This being the major reason why we first started AJ & Co, as we wanted to instill confidence into people and through our collection we are aiming to fulfill this.

  1. Do something that in 2017 you would not have done

Of course in moderation, but with a new year take the opportunities that come your way. Be open to new ideas and ways of thinking, allow yourself to feel uncomfortable because that feeling is also known as GROWTH!

  1. Network, network and oh yeah, network!

I might just say it again incase you missed it, but to NETWORK is to increase opportunities, it is just that simple.

Meet new people! They may not all add towards your happiness but the one thing that is clear is that you can learn something from every single person!

Now none of us are perfect, but we have the ability to work towards making ourselves better, for who? You guessed it, you! So whether you pick all 5 tips provided or even just the one, you owe it to yourself to give it a go!



A quote from the great Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Life is a journey, not a destination."

This took us years to understand, but because of it our entire world has changed! So maintain and remember those little wins, keep a smile, be confident with your style, try new things and meet new people.

Do all of this for the person you see in the mirror every day.

Go forward and let 2018 chase you.
