New Year, New Life, New Goals

As this crazy year comes to a close, many are left disappointed and depressed, even with the potential of the new year. Most people are very glad to say “goodbye” to 2020.

As we embark on the promise of 2021, we need to remember that just because it is a new year, things will not change overnight. It is up to us to start changing our mindset and get into action for shifts to really begin.


First, we need to stop living in the world of what we don’t want. By focusing on what is wrong, this is what we are bringing into our lives.

Alternatively, we need to start living in the world we do want.

Here we go again: Gratitude! Being thankful for what you have starts moving the energy away from focusing on what is wrong in our life and getting to the good that’s there.

Then we need to start visualizing what we want and truly embody it. See it. Feel the energy. It feels good, doesn’t it? It’s okay to go there and stay there. If you can experience it in your imagination, it can become reality.

As this new year begins, decide what you really want your life to look like and be about in 2021. By setting goals and intentions, you shape your future in advance. Goals and intentions draw us to success because as we create them, we are expanding our consciousness.

Here are some methods to goal setting that are tried-and-true steps to the realization of them:

Focus. It is so important to have clear focus on what you want. Write it down. Read it morning and night. If you put them on a card, you can bring them with you, so you can look at them during the day. It brings your desires to the forefront, thus increasing your attention and motivation on that desired goal.

Visualization. Garner a little time each day to picture what it feels like having the freedom or money to do what you want, when you want, travel wherever you want. Take a few minutes to close your eyes and passionately feel the fulfillment of having whatever lights you up from within.

Action. If you just dream it without taking any action, it’s only a dream. Make an action list. Even if it is only for today, it gets your creative juices flowing. You can keep adding to it. Rome wasn’t built in a day, so just keep climbing those steps one at a time – But keep climbing.

For instance, you can make a commitment that for 15 minutes each morning, you will turn off “Good Morning America” and meditate. Then maybe in the evening, you will write down 7 good things that happened that day. Then, figure out one action you can take the following day, to start you on the path to glorious change.

This year, more than ever, it is important to move away from anxiety and depression, into calm and joy. Doing a little work each day starts shaking up that stale energy that we are in.

You can break up your goals into different sections: Financial, career, relationship, spiritual, physical. All paths lead to the same place: The realization of a life that you have always wanted.

If something feels too daunting or uncomfortable, adjust it, so the energy around it is positive.

For instance, let’s say your goal is to get a new job in a new field. You’re afraid to even get started on that. So, you start looking by seeing what jobs in that field are available. Then you do a visualization of yourself in that job, doing a brilliant job. That evening, you write down 5 things you can do to start realizing your goal. Begin doing them one at a time. Even if you don’t do all 5 things, you have won, because you’re just another step closer to “winning” by putting yourself out there.

As we head into 2021, dare to dream a new life into existence through your new goals and actions toward them.

Regardless of our age or place in life, there are things that we can strive for and achieve at any age, no matter what.


The only limits we have are the ones we place on ourselves.

Here’s to your best year yet!
