What are your goals in life? Knowing what you want is the first step to achieving the life you envision. Everyday we have a gazillion moments of choice. These choices create our world. If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time.

Knowing your goals is the first step in creating purpose in your life. 


Take a few moments and think about what you want your life to look like in 5 years, in 3 years, and finally, in 1 year. Do you want to have your degree completed by then? A car? A house? A steady relationship? A million dollars? Be realistic but also optimistic. Close your eyes and envision what you want your life to look like. 

When you have a picture of what you want your future to look like, click here.
