How to Set Goals in 2018

The most rewarding thing about running a blog is that I can write whatever I am the most passionate about. Do you know what that is for me? If you said, goals and positivity, then you would be right.

I can’t describe the feeling exactly, but I can give it a shot. Setting goals for me is like my boss just walked in, and told me that I have a month off of work. Paid. Yea, let that one sink in just a bit. I don’t know what I would do without setting goals, and holding myself responsible for reaching those achievements.

I know that I have done achievement posts in the past, but I have a good feeling about this one. The new year is almost here and I need to make sure that I am prepped for all of the amazing opportunities that I am going to give myself. So grab a cup of tea, shit is about to get real.

I am sure that you have heard this one thousand times before, but this year is going to count. I feel major changes coming and with these goals, they are going to come to life!

10 Things to do to get Inspired: Creator’s Block

We are all artists, no matter what our passion is, we create art. I can speak for myself when I say that I have been in a funk when it comes to creativity. It happens to the best of us, but it can be a challenge to get out of. So for those of you that are going through this little phase, here are a few things that you can do to become inspired

1. Take a walk

Walking can clear your mind so that you can see the world around you. Inspiration is everywhere, you just need to open your eyes.

2. Go somewhere different

If you normally go to a Starbucks every morning, try the locally owned coffee shop downtown instead.

3.  Read a book

I know that you have a book in your room that you have been meaning to read, but have never gotten to it. Read it! So much inspiration can be on the first page.

4. Take a vacation

Even if you just go somewhere for the weekend. Get out of the town that you are in and go explore.

5. Change the screen saver on your phone

I know that this may sound a little silly, but I can’t tell you how many times that I have been inspired by someone’s wallpaper on their phone.

6. Create a vision board

Creating a vision board of everything that you want in life, or the things that make you smile can really change your mood.

7.  Shopping 

It doesn’t matter if I am shopping or window shopping, it always inspires me. Grab your shopping buddy and go!

8. Listen to music

Listen to your favorite music! I love me some 80’s and 90’s country!

9. Listen to a podcast

There are so many inspirational podcasts out there, pick one!

10. Talk to your favorite person

Talking to someone that you love can really help shift the mindset.

5 books to read! 

In order to be the best person that you can be, you need to have a good mind set. You need to have the confidence that you can do anything in the world. In order to do so, what would help you get that set of mind? Mine is to read amazing books! If you are not a book reader, then I would suggest downloading some of these books on Audible, because they are that good.

The struggles that she went through in the process and that sometimes you have to fight it alone. This book is perfect for those of you wanting to start a business or those of you that have a business.

Book #3
