How To Create A Life You Love In 2014: 4 Tips To Get You Started
Follow this 4-step formula for creating a life you love for you and your family in 2014.

Do you know what 2014 has in store for you and your family? If your answer is "no" or "I'm not sure," then now is the perfect time to decide what 2014 is going to look like for you. In order to create what we truly desire in our lives, it all starts with setting our intentions and then taking action to make it happen. If you want 2014 to be a year that you look back on as a turning point in creating the life you truly want for you and your family, then follow this 4 step formula:

Step 1: Assess

The first step is to take stock of your current life. Before deciding on how you would like to move forward, it's important to assess where you are right now. We all want more of some things and less of others. Ask yourself: what do I want more of in 2014, and what do I want to leave behind going forward into the New Year?

Step 2: Create

Once you've taken stock of your current life, it's time to move forward in creating the vision for the life you truly want. An authentic vision comes from your heart. Feeling emotionally moved by your vision is what will give you the drive and courage to go for your dreams, and the strength to overcome any challenges along the way. You should feel excited when you read it.

Step 3: Commit

Once you've created the vision for your life it is time to master the most important step of the whole process. Commit to and believe 100% in bringing your vision to fulfillment. This can sometimes be the most difficult part. Particularly keeping at bay the negative inner critic that keeps trying to tell you why you can't do it. Remind yourself daily of your vision. Why you are doing what you're doing? Why should you choose not to listen to the part of yourself trying to hold you back? You need to live it and breath it.

Step 4: Achieve

It's time to turn your vision into reality. This requires taking consistent and decisive action towards your goals. Until you do, your vision will remain a dream. Identify the steps required for you to reach your vision, and develop an action plan on how you will implement each step. Breaking it down into manageable steps will help to overcome feeling overwhelmed when making changes in our life.

These 4 steps are the crucial ingredients to the formula for creating and achieving the vision you have for your life. Miss one, and you might find your vision will flop.

As 2013 comes to a close, now is the perfect time to start designing the vision for your life in 2014. So when the New Year rings in, you're on your way to creating the life you want for you and your family.

Imagine how great it will feel at the end of 2014 to look back over the year realize how you're creating the life you dream of!
