Few things beat the rush and excitement of starting a New Year. And we don’t know about you, but this one feels extra significant — maybe because it’s the beginning of a new decade!

Whatever the reason, right about now you’re probably thinking, “How do I make 2020 my best year yet? How do I accomplish my goals, all while having an unforgettable time?”

Because let’s be honest, some years fly by and we’re left scratching our heads thinking … “What really happened?” 

To make 2020 a stand-out year, and kick things off in action mode, try doing these three simple things: 

  1. Pick one word to carry you through the year. 

Think about one word that symbolizes what you want to experience in 2020. Is your goal to feel less stress? Maybe “CALM” is your word. Do you want to keep at your goals, no matter the obstacles? Perhaps your word is “RESILIENCE.”

Or, maybe one of these words speak more to you: FAITH, PEACE, EASE, LOVE, ABUNDANCE, ALLOW, HUMOR, FUN, HAPPINESS, SELF-LOVE, RELAX. 

Write your word on a notecard and place it on your mirror, refrigerator or anywhere you’ll see it daily. 

  1. Choose an affirmation that sets you on your intended path.

It’s easy to start feeling lost as the year drifts by. You might find yourself thinking, “What was my intention again? What did I want to accomplish?” 

Pick an affirmation that puts you in the right mindset to go after those goals for 2020. Repeat it each morning and night (or whenever your mind starts to drift toward the negative) to help you stay focused. 

It could be something like: 1. I am the architect of my own life. 2. I am loved, loving and I love with an open heart and a clear mind. 3. I am capable of doing great things. 4. My body is healthy, strong and resilient. 5. I am worthy and deserving of _________ (love, good health, money, happiness, peace, etc.). 

  1. Make one wish to come true in the New Year. 

Want to buy a new home, be in a happy and healthy relationship (with your current or a new beau!) or get your passion project up and running? Whatever your wish may be, write it down and look at it daily. 

Keep your focus on your goals and believe in yourself. Good things are in store for you for 2020. 🙂

Cheers to your best year (and decade) yet!
