This post will help you clarify your goals and intentions for the new year. Grab a pen and paper, answer these questions for yourself and make a detailed plan on how to become to the ultimate version of yourself in 2018.

Step 1: Gratitude

List the things that you are grateful for right now, in this present moment. Also make a list of things that happened during 2017 that you're grateful for.

Step 2: Goals

List down the things you wish to accomplish in 2018. Try to be very specific.

Step 3: Getting there

How are you going to achieve these goals? What steps do you need to take in order to move towards them? Make a detailed step-by-step guide for yourself on how to achieve your goals.

step 4: Setting intentions

An intention is something you wish to embody. Not to be confused with a goal which is something you wish to achieve. An intention can be, for example, to live truthfully, be forgiving, spread positive energy etc. Set your intentions by writing them down.

step 5: Visualize

Now visualize yourself in the position you wish to reach during this year. Write down what kind of routines you'll have, what your days will be like and what it will eventually feel like once you've achieved the things you just listed.


 Congratulations. You have discovered the tools that you'll need to become the best possible version of yourself this year. Return to your lists whenever you need some extra inspiration and new motivation to stay on track and work towards your goals.
