Big Dreams will come true this year
I just finished reading, "In the Plex" which is a history of Google. From the very beginning the founders of Google had huge goals for the company.

People won't have time for you if you are always angry and complaining
We all hate spending time with angry people. People who are angry are just not pleasant to be around. If you are always angry, analyze why, and start fixing the problem.

Your habits shape your life. You can completely change your life by eliminating bad habits, and replacing them with good habits. The beginning of the year is a great time to reflect on your life, and either add, or subtract some of our habits.
If you have a purpose in which you believe,there's no end to the amount of things you can accomplish
There is no greater gift in life than to wake up each morning with a purpose. I love to teach and coach young adults and this has been a driving purpose in my life. If you don't have a purpose then discovering your purpose in life can be a goal this year. Spend some time researching, talking to other people, taking long walks in order to find that purpose. You will be rewarded with a satisfying life.
For 30 days before falling asleep Write down three things you are grateful for
