Those are all fun goals and don’t get me wrong, I love a new car like the next guy.
But when it comes to it, life isn’t about the things that we collect, but it’s about the person that we are becoming.
#1 | CULTIVATE HEALTHY HABITS
Instead of focusing on the number on the scale, how would it be to focus on how you’re FEELING?
Now doesn’t THAT sound more inspiring then “I need to lose X pounds”?
#2 | ADOPT AN EMPOWERING MINDSET
What if … when life throws you sh*t, you’re able to take a step back, take a deep breath, and deal with it, head first?
#3 | FEEL STRONGER
But most importantly, you will know, at a deep level, that you deserve and CAN be happy, fulfilled and you CAN achieve your goals.
#4 | BE HAPPY
When you set a goal, your mind will automatically become more focused on bringing that into your life.
Because once you start paying attention to something that you want to achieve, you will see that it might not be as hard to create in your life.
#5 | FIND YOUR PASSION
Do you know what excites you? What sets your soul on fire? And I really mean on FIRE?!
If the answer is “no”, then you MUST start looking for the things you’re passionate about so that you can do more of it.
Are you passionate about animals? Then volunteer one hour per week at a shelter! Are you passionate about art? Go to a museum once per month or take a free course online to learn more about it.
Are you passionate about health? Read books or listen to podcasts to educate yourself.
#6 | BE PRESENT IN THE MOMENT
If you want to cultivate more happiness in your life, then you must set the goal of being more present at the moment.
If you’re present in the moment, then you feel more connected to yourself, to your life, and to the moments that you are experiencing throughout the day.
And what does that do?
It helps create more awareness of your surroundings and being able to appreciate the little things in life that you might be taking for granted and that might be passing you by.

#7 | ENJOY LIFE
Such a simple goal, and yet so important.
When’s the last time you set the intention or the goal to enjoy your life? To enjoy the little things like going for a walk, or having a conversation with a close friend?
The beauty of life… and the beauty of creating a life that you love…is to realize that it’s about the small things, the small moments, and the simplest pleasures.
And if you switch your focus to simply want to enjoy life, then you will see that you’re able to create a lot more happiness in your life and that your dream life is closer than you realize.
Because trust me, happiness is really about the simple things and setting the goal of “enjoying life” and seeing that you can enjoy the smallest moments will be a gift that you give to yourself.
#8 | BE GRATEFUL
I’ve talked about the power of having a gratitude practice, so I won’t go into too much detail in this blog post.
But what will say is that if you set the goal to be more grateful, on a daily basis, you will find your happiness expand exponentially.
# 9 | BE PATIENT
Real talk: I struggle with this one … big time.
But if you want to create a life that you love, then you have to set the goal of being patient because … well… some things take time.
And you have to be patient with the process and with yourself as you work on becoming the person that you were meant to be to achieve your biggest goals.
So make sure to set a goal for yourself to be patient and kind with yourself throughout this journey of transformation. But remember that the wait and the effort will be worth it.
# 10 | HELP PEOPLE AROUND YOU
Good karma is a real thing, people!
The more good you do in this world, the more people you try to help, the more those good deeds will come back to you in a positive way.
Because positivity breeds positivity.
So set the goal of helping people around you, and you will slowly start to see how it will come back to you in a positive way.
Try it out – set the goal of helping one person, every single day, and notice the subtle ways that you will be taken care of by the Universe in a similar way.
