I have always tried to keep myself accountable but it has been difficult for me, I really needed more of a driving force and a reason behind me to keep me in line with what I wanted to achieve. That is why last year I do not feel I achieved everything I wanted, I feel I could have done so much more. I want 2017 to be different and to make this impossible for me to skip this I have created goals for myself and made them public for everyone to read. You guys will keep me accountable. It is scary but at the same time exciting as I will have more reason to get to where I want to go now. So if you see me slacking off, send me a message.
I have seen people make their goal list is a variety of ways and that’s where I started but I wanted to change it a bit for myself as I wanted to try something which fitted a bit more to myself and the way I think.
So here we go let the year begin well and lets see what I can achieve!!
I started my journey a year ago with over $15’000 worth of debt, it has slowly whittled down to just over $5’000, so now I look to get rid of the rest of that and save some money too.
- Debt Free
- Save $10’000 in the bank
- Save $20’000 in the bank
As with increased wealth, you start to feel you want more for yourself. Instead of looking at just increasing my business assets I feel taking care of myself is also an important part of moving forward. These will help increase my own health and well-being.

- Buy New Clothes
- Learn to cook simple meals
- Become more confident in myself
- Watch more videos on Alpha M YouTube Channel
- Meditate 10 minutes everyday.
- Meet more new people

- Be home for Christmas 2017
First I need to find a system which works for me. I have just downloaded an app Freeletics which I will start using, hopefully it will get me on the right track. Doing Muay Thai for years was very easy as it was a set routine, day in day out. Now my schedule is very different I am looking for something which I can fit into my day. This is the starter list for me, but by no means the last.
- Use Freeletics app to help with my gains
- Start a fitness routine
- Run 5km
- 100 Push-ups
- 50 dips
- 50 chin ups
- 100 Squats
- Visible six pack
I have been working online as a digital nomad for just over a year now and what a journey it has been, lots of lessons learned and now I have my basics down I am looking to increase all of my businesses to a higher level. I feel by the end of 2017 I can hit $20’000 a month as a minimum.
- Make Kindle business earn
- $5’000 a month = End of February 2017
- $10’000 a month = End of July 2017
- Make Affiliate Marketing business earn
- $5’000 a month = End of July 2017
- $10’000 a month = End of October 2017
- Reinvest into new businesses
- Start another income stream
- Make current businesses passive
- Start some business partnerships
Instagram was something which I started out as a way to share little parts of my day which I don’t share anywhere else, cool little personal moments and pictures. I like sharing things which you may not have seen and may inspire you. I plan to do more on Fresh Belief Instagram, here are some things I will be doing:
- Post at least once a day
- Take quotes and use them as posts from
- Blog posts
- More out and about stuff
I can admit I haven’t taken much interest in YouTube in 2016, it just wasn’t something that I had time for, I was spending more time on other aspects of my business and blog. In 2017 I will be getting out more content, little videos and long ones.
- I will Shoot
- More quick videos
- At least 1 video per week
- Gain 1’000 subscribers

- Launch the new website
- Launch Blogging the right way E-book
- Make tweaks and improvements to it

Email marketing is something I couldn’t get my head around for the longest time, this year will be a time when I want to master the email marketing game and start to utilise it more.

Last year I went to Lao and it was an amazing trip, check it out here
I know I am in a fortunate position and other people don’t have the same opportunities, I know I can help out by giving to the right people. This year I started donating to my friend’s gym Wor. Watthana as I could see that the money was being used wisely and not wasted as many charities do. Instead of giving money straight up to other places I plan to donate items and actually go to interact with the people and kids.
- Donate more to Wor. Watthana
- Donate clothing and school supplies to orphanages in Bangkok
I feel everything above is achievable for me and I will do all of them, I have my direction and you can all keep me in place and let me know if I am slipping off, please do message me if I do slip!!
I feel now is the right time and perfect opportunity for anyone to write down their goals for this year, that way you will have a direction. I like many people didn’t write down their goals each and every year and I achieved far less than I could have. By making a list it gives you direction and I guarantee you that if you put your mind to it and your goals are realistic you can achieve them.
Good Luck and havea good year
