Spend some time to determine what is most important and why.
What do you want in your life that you are pursuing? What are your hopes and dreams? What makes you happy.

Be flexible with your goals as they may change. Be flexible when setting and achieving your goals. As things change in your life, your goals need to be adjusted accordingly. The momentum you create when you want to make a change in your life is created by the small steps you take.
4. Be Free from Regrets
Regrets are a way to hold yourself back in life. If you focus all of your attention on the past, you’ll miss the present as well as the future.
What you have done or not done in the past cannot be changed. Every negative thought that you have about your past should be challenged.
Write down your regrets on a piece of paper to have fun and allow yourself to let go.
5. Do Something Scary
It’s all about you choosing to get out of your comfort zones and look at limitations from a different perspective.
Public speaking is one thing that can be terrifying. I was afraid of public speaking. But I knew I wanted the opportunity to speak as a motivational speaker. Toast Masters was the best way to conquer my fear of public speakers.
My first speech went horribly. My knees were hurting, I felt like I was going to die, and my hands were shaking. I made it through, and the satisfaction of finishing the speech was greater than I had ever imagined. I chose to continue, and now I am a motivational speaker.
Make a list of scary things you’d like to do but are afraid to. Start small, create a plan and then go. You must never stop doing the scary things you love if you are determined to break free from complacency.
