What are You Going to Achieve in 2018? Without Goals, You’re Stagnant! #inspiration #goals

2018 goals


Happy New Year! It’s a brand new year, full of possibilities, adventures and achievements.


What are you going to accomplish in 2018?


Looking back, I met 90% of my goals in 2017. I tried new things and met some wonderful people. I pushed myself hard and am pleasantly surprised by all that I accomplished. It’s amazing what you can do when you set high goals for yourself.


It’s 2018 and I have a long list of goals I want to achieve. Some of them are personal (I resolve to kiss MR N more) while some are professional (I resolve to republish POTL and write POTL 2). I’m stretching myself in ways I’ve never done before. It’s exciting and I can’t wait to see what 2018 brings.


If you’re not into New Year’s Resolutions, then sit down and write out yearly, monthly, weekly goals. I’ve learned through experience that when you have goals for yourself, you reach new heights you never thought possible. Tip: Be very specific in your goals. Don’t just say, I’m going to be healthy and lose weight. Instead say how you’re going to be healthy. My healthy goal includes drinking 64 ounces of water daily and walking four times a week.

2016: It’s a Brand New Year! #inspiration #resolutions #MondayBlogs

happy new year

Happy New Year, everyone! I’m back from vacation and ready to tackle 2016.

Every new year, millions of people around the world make resolutions. 

Do you?

I used to make impossible resolutions and by March, I’d given up on them. I felt horrible about myself, calling myself a failure. Truth is, I wasn’t the failure; the resolutions were.

So now, I create yearly goals for myself. I make sure they are possible to achieve. This year, MR N and I have the following goals for 2016:

  • Build our author promotions business and gain twice as many clients as we had in 2015.
  • Love each other more than we did in 2015
  • Eat more chocolate
  • Pay down our consumer debt by increasing our payments
  • Donate more to our local food bank than we did in 2015
  • Have fun and enjoy each and every day

Goals don’t have to be serious, as you can see from the chocolate one. lol!

What are your goals for the year? If you’d like to share in the comments below, I’d love to hear them.

2016 is going to be a great year! We (MR N and I) hope your 2016 is filled with new experiences, love, laughter and may your dreams become reality. Dreams really do come true… we’re proof of that. 😀
