My 2014 Goals And Resolutions

2014 goals and resolutions

For the past two years, I've publicly declared my goals and resolutions at the beginning of each year.  I've found by doing this, it's created a powerful internal pressure to take action and raise my standards to achieve them.  Accountability is one of the most important factors that has helped me to push myself further and further each year, and I plan on publicly sharing my 2014 goals here as well so that I can remain accountable.

Right now I'm in Bali, Indonesia and I decided to record this video on the beach.  While I'm proud to have achieved many big goals during 2013 (see my 2013 goals review), I'm more motivated than ever to achieve even greater things in 2014.  During 2014, I plan on posting more regular updates on my goals, so that you can see my progress towards them.  I plan on being totally open and transparent, so you can learn from my successes and failures throughout the year.

Watch the video below for my 2014 goals:

My List Of 2014 Goals And Resolutions

Below is a list of 24 goals that I've set out to achieve during 2014.  As you can see, I categorized my goals into different areas, to ensure that I'm making progress in every area of my life and being balanced.  I also always ensure that my goals are aligned with my ultimate life plan and vision.  On a side note, you will notice that I added a few goals that I didn't mention in the video.

Have You Set Your Goals Yet?

In 2013, I shared a Goal Setting Workshop that I do every year to help me set goals for myself that I learned from Tony Robbins.  If you haven't set your 2014 goals yet, then I encourage you go through a process like that.  It's the process that I go through every year, along with what I've learned from Gary Ryan Blair in his 100 Day Challenge.  My secret weapon to achieving my goals has been using accountability systems, such as the 100 Day Challenge, which has given me that extra edge throughout the year to push myself harder.  The biggest mistake people make when setting goals is never even checking them again or measuring them regularly, which is what this 100 Day Challenge helps you to do.

I encourage you to make sure that you've clearly set your goals for 2014 and to even publicly share them, just as I'm doing right now.  You can share them with your friends, family, on Facebook, via e-mail, on your blog, or even as a comment below.  Again, by making them public you'll have more internal pressure to follow through on them.  The people that you share them with will also likely be following up with you throughout the year, reminding you of the commitment that you made to them, which will make you more likely to follow through on them.

So, what are your goals and resolutions for 2014?  I'd love to hear what they are, make them public and leave a comment below!

    Truly Inspiring! Keep up the great work!

  • Stuart Trier

    Some solid goals for 2014. Looking forward to watching your progress with them. Keep up the good work.

  • Techimpossible

    Awesome Stefan. Super helpful and inspiring as always.

  • Just watched your video. Great goals!!

  • David

    Great goals Stefan, certainly very inspiring. Do you have any plans to show income reports this year? Hope your enjoying Bali!

    • Thanks David. Have no plans of doing an in-depth income report month after month, but have plans of doing a monthly “overall progress report” in each of my goals, sharing my results and progress.

      • Herb

        David beat me to the question. Breakdown on your 30K/month would be great. I think income reports addresses 2 things: 1) transparency 2) it markets the product that is effective in making you money. If you just do income/expense report on the Kindle business or May 2014 money making course, these reports are marketing your KMM and May 2014 product. I know one guru makes an income report and he actually generates the most income from the product he created. //// By the way, I am so happy with Kindle Money Mastery that I will surely buy your May 2014 product.

        • Sure, I’ll consider being more specific about this when I do the regular updates, but there’s some websites/affiliate sites I own that I prefer to keep private, so I won’t be sharing the exact websites that make me money.

          • Herb

            Do as you please Stefan. I’m not really interested in the details of your other business; only in Kindle: no of books published this month; average income per book (total earnings divided by total no of books); expenses; lessons learned this month. I seek inspiration. But do this only in view of marketing KMM and other Kindle services. This can even be a separate blog, helping you achieve goal #5. /// Btw, I’ll be joining you in your 100 Day Challenge. =)

  • Yvonne

    Hey sefan

    Great post. So here are my goals for 2014. I see from yours that by putting them in categories it helps to achieve in all areas of your life. I have many finance business ones and no social relationship ones. So will add some more goals soon. Great work Stefan.

    Start to learn Italian
    Start to create passive income on line by the end of the year to be earning £1k min a month

    Sell all the items I don’t want on eBay. To earn minimum of £250

    Juice for 2 weeks

    Colonic session

    Get a will by march 2014

    Get a bookings for turkey apartment by summer 2014

    Looking and buy an apartment in London as an investment by end of 2014

    Save £3-£4k for apartment. Mainly from passive income and eBay

    Clean and de-clutter my house. Including getting the spare room

    • Awesome Yvonne, thanks for sharing – let’s make it happen!

  • Megan Connors

    Great post Stefan. I have been a fan of this page for a while, but Dec something just clicked and I realized I needed to make a change. I’ve decided to follow your blogs and videos along with reading and listening to audio daily to build the life I deserve to live. I look forward to the many videos and blogs for 2014.

  • Amazing goals. Very specific, and VERY inspiring. Thank you for showing us how real goal setting is done.

  • Boosh

    Hi Stefan, I get confused by your goals. Theres alot in different life areas that require financial spending which informs me that the biggest area of action would be generating and income from the business area. This may not be the case for you personally as obviously you are already generating an income and have a business. But for those of us trying to define goals in various life areas, how can life area goals be defined if their reliant on financial resources which are not there? It seems as their is a life area starting point I should define to then allow the goals within it to inform other life areas as opposed to writing what I want in each individual area. It seems that the life areas are operating with one another rather than being seperate. Its confusing. If say i want to rent my own house by the end of 2014 for my lifestyle area, then I would have to define a goal in my finance area to earn say $2500 per month consistent income by end of 2014, then I would probably have to create a business life area and write a goal like ‘brainstorm a new business idea, test and implement’. The same goes for relationships, this taps into health, personal development and finances. Their doesn’t seem a process from what I’ve found through tonys work and your implementation of how to blend the categories together to create a singular voyage, instead its like a juggling act. For example, if I decided to go on holiday their would be a number of things I had to action from various life areas to get from A-B, but I would not write down these goals in a number of categories, I would just arrange a holiday and create a to do list to get there.

    • Hey Boosh, I’m not sure if I totally follow your question. Yes, it’s true many of my goals require finances to be able to achieve… in fact, most of my goals are all related to one another anyways. They’re all aligned with my mission and purpose, which is to grow and to give. I used to have less goals in previous years, simply because I wasn’t in the position I am now to achieve many of them, due to finances (like traveling or buying things). But, you can set many goals that don’t require money. Health and fitness can be free or inexpensive. You can read books inexpensively. You can have certain experiences without spending money. You can go out, socialize, change habits, or work on yourself in so many ways without spending money. Just have to be creative, is all. Check out and search on my blog for my 2012 goals and 2013 goals, you will see how they’ve evolved into what they are now. Ultimately, life is a juggling act, there’s many areas of life that will require your focus and attention on an on-going basis!

    What about your morning ritual habit ? Did you abandon it ?

    • It’s still a consistent habit in my life! No need to set it as a goal.

  • Hi stefan – I found this really helpful. I read it on the day that I had sat down create a 90 day plan for my online business. I reviewed my journal and realised that I had set goals at the beginning of the year. Yes, I had forgotten about them. I had read this post earlier in the day and noted how you reviewed your goals. I decided to model what you did. I got an amazing result because I realised that I have achieved some and had made progress on others that I could build on. What was missing was that I had not scheduled activities to move me closer to achieving my goals. I have now done that with the ones I’ve prioritised. I’ve also scheduled to review my goals at the end of the month.
