A bolder vision of what is achievable this year can change everything for you. What appears impossible for you right now might become possible by the end of the year.

  • If you’re poor, you can become wealthy.
  • If you have health challenges, you can become well again.
  • If you have no relationship or a difficult marriage, you can find someone who fulfills your desire for companionship.

In other words, whatever is not working for you, whatever is causing you stress, grief, or distress can be overcome. No dream is impossible if you can imagine it vividly enough and take the necessary steps to turn things around for the better.

5 Life Changing Ideas

Here are 5 ways that you can make 2017 the best year of your life:

  1. Set goals.

Writing down definite goals in the areas of your life you want to improve will give the rest of the year a clear sense of purpose and direction.

  1. Face your biggest problem.

Almost everyone has one huge problem that takes up most of their attention, a lingering theme that keeps repeating throughout the years. Sometimes these problems are things that you can overcome with some clear thinking and decisive action, but, at other times, you may need quite a bit of help. If, say, your alcoholism it’s ruining your life — perhaps, disrupting your relationships to causing problems with keeping a job — then you are aware of the problem.

However, awareness may not be enough because you can’t seem to stop the craving to drink whenever you feel depressed. By enrolling in an addiction facility like HARP Alcohol & Drug Rehab Henderson, Nevada you will get all the professional help you need to find lasting sobriety. Interestingly enough, once you face your biggest challenge in life, then everything else that has been holding you back will begin to open up for you.

  1. Learn to love and accept yourself just the way you are.

While you can change many things about yourself, you can’t change everything. You can, for instance, change your weight, but you can’t change your height. Unfortunately, we are surrounded by so many stereotypes about physical appearance and personality that we often feel that we don’t measure up to what society considers beautiful, smart, or talented. Ironically, even people who are famous for their beauty and admired for their talents don’t feel that they are good enough, either. Decide to change what you can, but accept the things that can’t be changed. This decision to love and accept yourself just the way you are will give you a great feeling of peace.

  1. Find out what you don’t know.

If things aren’t working out for you in some area of your life, it’s probably because you’re going about it the wrong way. If, for instance, you don’t earn enough from your current line of work, it’s rarely because of the industry or the economy. People have succeeded or failed in all kinds of occupations and in all types of economic conditions. Certainly, if you are in the wrong line of work, then you can always change careers, but you may simply not be focusing on doing things in an optimal way. What’s more, one you may not be able to improve for the better is because you don’t know how to do things in a different way. You don’t know what you don’t know. However, you can always read books, ask for advice from people who are successful in your field, and learn through observation. When you know how to improve, you can increase your results and your income.

  1. Experiment until you get it right.

Assuming that you’ve identified clear goals about all the things you want to change and made plans to create different outcomes for yourself, you are unlikely to be successful as soon as you start taking a different set of actions. Think of all your plans as provisional plans—they are the best ideas you can come up with at the time. The more you take action, the more likely you are to find ways to do things better. Consider all your efforts to change a certain dysfunctional area of your life as an experiment, and learn from the results you get so that you can make incremental improvements over time.

Applied Imagination

You can change your life for the better through the use of applied imagination. By imagining different options, you can shift how you think, and, as a result, experience a happier, more fulfilling life.
