Living the Life you want to in 2011!


I have a goal set in my mind of what I want to achieve in life. I bet you also have dreams and aspirations. The big question is, how do you get there? Here are some ideas to help you achieve the life you want to in 2011.

  1. Write your goals down. 10 yearly goals, 10 monthly goals, 10 weekly Goals, 10 daily goals. Put the goals on paper and in a chart form. Follow them closely and shoot for the stars.

  2. Review your goals EVERY day. Check off the ones you are completing and get working on the ones you haven't. When you complete a milestone, reward yourself. 

  3. Revise your goals on a regular basis. If they are to easy, make them harder if you find your having a hard time reaching them, make them easier to reach. 

  4. Wake up every morning and tell yourself 5 times your going to have a great day. You will create a positive mindset right off the hop and start your day off in a great way, try it, it works.

  5. Try to NEVER complain. It has to be one of the hardest things for anyone to do. However, if you can overcome the bad habit of complaining you will be on your way to   living the life you want to.

  6. Eat healthy. “you are what you eat”. Your diet will play a big role in how you feel every day.

  7. You are what you think about most of the time. Envision your goals and dreams all the time. Eventually you will naturally make your way there.

  8. Keep your head up, be positive. 

  9. Smile

  10. Laugh 


I hope these 10 things will help you as much as they help me. I take control of my life and believe that I am the reason for who I am. I live the life I want to and so can you :)

Happy New Year!
