You Want to Step Up in 2022? Try this No-Nonsense Guide

This 2022,  we’re not joking around. We’re making intentional efforts to step up our lives and put our village people to shame. That’s why we’ve come up with this no-bullshit guide to stepping up. 

Set specific goals 

Nobody counts January as a month, the actual year starts in February, so it’s not too late to set your goals. In order for you to step up, you first need to know what you want and how you want to achieve it.  And please don’t let your goals be “I want to make money this year.” We all want to do that dear, the question is “how?”

Grow up and take responsibility

We did say this was a no-bullshit guide so we’re not going to mince words with you. You are responsible for your own life, take charge of it and do what you need to do (that is legal) to step up this year. No more excuses. 

Shoot your shot

We’re not just talking about relationship shots here. Step up your career by shooting professional shots for companies and brands you want to work with/for. Step up your friendship circle by shooting friendship shoots at people who you think would make good friends.

Clean up and fix up your appearance 

We’re sure you’ve heard of the phrase, “Fake it till you make it.” It’s a skill that a lot of Nigerians have mastered. When you look like what you want to become, you’ll work hard towards becoming it. Yes, you can quote us anytime.  

Invest 

In this big 2022, we don’t think you need us to tell you how important investing is in stepping up your life. Are you seeing the crypto big boys? Do we need to tell you more? You don’t necessarily have to invest by buying crypto. There are many other investment opportunities. You can start by buying that small land in your village.  

Make More Money

The major way to step up, especially in a country like Nigeria is by making more money. That’s why you’ll find many Nigerians doing multiple side jobs. Find a skill you’re good at and monetize it. Or invest in various trainings and make yourself a good candidate for promotion in your office.
