There are a number of areas where you may want to take control of your life. You may have lifestyle goals like meditating, exercising, eating healthier or thinking more positively. You may have career goals like going back to school, getting a promotion, or starting your own company. You may have personal goals like finding a partner or spouse, improving your finances, or buying a home.
