What will 2014 bring for you?
Will it be better or will it just be another passing year?

Today being the first day of 2014, there are many things going through peoples minds like: “Why did I drink so much last night? or “Where did I leave my car?” No, but all kidding aside, what are you thinking about today? Are you thinking about how to make your 2014 better than your 2013?

Most people will probably make some kind of resolution or another. The standard “I’m going to loose X amount pounds/stop smoking/do more fitness/ be nicer to my spouse and kids by such and such a date” usually fall into the abyss of the forgotten before the month is out. We then get disappointed at our failure and give up until the next New Year comes around to start the whole process over again.

So how do we change that and make those resolutions stick and work?

One way is to realize that you can’t break old habits. You can only create new ones that are stronger and better. Trying to break a habit is telling your mind you must take away something and it rebels and tries to maintain it. When you create a new habit, preferably a good one, you tell your mind that you are adding something new and better to your life, make it more receptive to the change.

Becoming passionate about the change you want to make is extremely important. We tend to work harder and faster at achieving things we are passionate about. Remember courting your first big “True Love”? Nothing seemed impossible, right? So become passionate bout your goals. And I don’t mean take up stalking.

Some self-reflection questions you can ask yourself are:

    1. Am I passionate about my goals?
    2. Where can I find additional inspiration?
    3. What task can I achieve today to fuel my passion and get me back on track toward my goals?

Using tools like affirmations to transform negative thoughts into positive ones or meditation to relax and rejuvenate your energy as well as posting notes and hanging up pictures to inspire and remind you of your goals. Create a Vision Board to hold the pictures of things you want to achieve in plain view on a daily basis.

Affirmations can also help fuel the passion and solidify the goal reaching process.
Here are some you could try:


    I am passionate about my goals.

    My passion drives me forward to live the life of my dreams.

    I know what I want in life and I set goals to get me there.

    I know that each goal I achieve brings me in union with what I desire.

    I feel truly invigorated with each success!

    Meeting a goal, no matter how big or small, strengthens my confidence and self-esteem.

    I enjoy these feelings and strive to receive them as often as possible.

    Today, I choose to feel inspired by my passions and let the excitement propel me forward to achieve my goals, regardless of any challenges that may arise.

Setting and achieving goals is a never-ending circle of positivity that fuels your passion even more. You can use your passion to encourage you and help you to persevere over obstacles. It will increase and replenish with every goal you complete.

Using tools like affirmations to transform negative thoughts into positive ones or meditation to relax and rejuvenate your energy as well as posting notes and hanging up pictures to inspire and remind you of your goals.

Another thing that helps us achieve our goals is the right mindset. I have compiled 15 Mindsets for 2014 into a pdf format that you can view online or download (for Free) at this link: 15 mindsets for 2014

Read these and apply them into your life to help you achieve your goals for this year.
I am off to a good start this 2014 and hope you will do the same.

So here’s to YOUR Wealth!

Cheers, Smiles, Laughs and Success,
