2018 Intentions – 50 ways to change your life in one year

Updated: Aug 21, 2020

Let 2018 be the year that you commit to putting yourself first and become your own top priority. Start the new year with new patterns of thought, new waves of emotion, and a new connection to the world around you. Choose to cultivate inner peace and happiness. Develop a fierce mind, a kind heart, and a brave spirit. Trust that when you change your thinking, it will change your life.

  1. Guard your thoughts – a negative mind will never give you a positive life

  2. Complain less – don't let the things you want make you forget the things you have

  3. Eliminate what doesn’t help you evolve – If it doesn’t add to your life, it doesn’t belong in your life

  4. Choose faith over fear – the fears you don’t face today become your greatest regrets

  5. Wake up earlier

  6. Embody the energy you want to attract – vibes speak louder than words

  7. Inspire people – be the reason someone doesn’t give up

  8. Recognize clutter isn’t just physical – it’s toxic relationships, bad habits and old ideas

  9. Embrace change – challenges have the power to unlock your full potential and build confidence

  10. Don’t over-think it – so much energy is wasted worrying about things that never happen

  11. Make “thank you” your mantra – a grateful heart is a magnet for miracles

  12. Sweat every day – it strengthens your body and boosts your mood

  13. Forgive everyone everything – it’s important for your happiness, not necessarily theirs

  14. Be kind – a healthy mind does not speak ill of others

  15. Watch more documentaries

  16. Dream big – don’t be afraid to fail, be afraid not to try

  17. Let it go – don’t let little disputes ruin a great friendship

  18. Eat well – how you nourish your body directly reflects how you nourish your life

  19. Meditate – a quiet mind is able to hear intuition over fear

  20. Be patient – don’t just go with the flow, be the flow

  21. Pay off your credit cards every month

  22. Loosen up – anxiety doesn't come from thinking about the future, but wanting to control it

  23. Smile more – you’ll look ten years younger

  24. Show gratitude – remember there are people praying for the things you already have

  25. Drink more water

  26. Believe in yourself – limits aren’t real, they only exist in your mind

  27. Go your own way – don’t let other people’s behavior or beliefs destroy your inner peace

  28. Keep an open mind – inspiration can come from the most unlikely, and even difficult, situations

  29. Live in the moment – now is all there is

  30. Think positively – if you love life, it will love you back

  31. Always wear sunscreen, even when its cloudy

  32. Be brave – forget all the reasons it won’t work and focus on the one reason that it will

  33. Go to bed earlier

  34. Make peace with the past – forgive yourself so you can move forward with your own life

  35. Fear is to be felt, not obeyed – acknowledge the feeling, but don’t become the emotion

  36. Always carry a book (or two) with you

  37. Buy nice sheets

  38. Collect ideas – surround yourself with beauty and creativity to elevate your own thoughts

  39. Stop making excuses – just because life isn’t always fair doesn’t mean it isn’t good

  40. Floss everyday

  41. Wake up every morning believing that something wonderful is about to happen

  42. Live simply – buy only what you need and consume consciously

  43. Don’t settle – think bigger about your life and believe you were meant for greater things

  44. Edit your lifestyle – don’t waste time organizing what you can discard or give away

  45. Stay fiercely positive – your mind believes everything you tell it

  46. Trust your intuition – let your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears

  47. Moisturize

  48. Be kind to everyone – rudeness is the weak person’s imitation of strength

  49. Choose your friends carefully – you become like the people you spend the most time with

  50. What worries you controls you – the less you give a damn, the happier you’ll be
