1. First of all, I set goals in 5 areas of my life using a goal setting video Yoga with Kassandra on Youtube made.
2. I joined a Facebook group called the Debt Dump Challenge to help me stick to my student loan pay off goal for the year.
In November 2018, I found out about a Facebook support group called the Debt Dump Challenge which was made by people who are from Boise, Idaho and go to my church. I don't really know how I found it, but I'm glad I did. It inspired me to set a goal higher than what I had the year before. And by May, I was able to reach my goal. Now I'm about $600 past my goal thanks to this group.
3. A writing Meetup inspired me to start both of my blogs.
Last year, towards the end of the year, I started going to a Meet Up called Write Who You Are. It encouraged me to write about what my dreams are in life. I was only able to attend the group twice before the Meetup ended, but it inspired me to start two different blogs- ABCTE Teacher and Fitness and Books.
4. Fitness Meetups and Fitness Youtube channels motivated me to meet my fitness goals.

Also, throughout the year, I participated in several fitness challenges created by Love Sweat Fitness, Jessica Smith TV, and Weight Endurance on Youtube. Most recently, I joined a 21 mindfulness challenge Womeness on Instagram created that focused on gratitude, meditation, and creating a habit to either sleep 7-8 hours a day or drink 75 oz of water a day.

Because of both the Meetups and health/fitness challenges, I was able to meet my goal of working out 3-5 days a week and had fun doing it. I also have been using meditation as a tool more.
I honestly couldn't have been as successful at meeting my goals this year without these people and several more I didn't mention. There have been so many people who inspired me this year and helped me with a lot of different things.
If you have questions about anything I wrote about, including how I met my financial goals, let me know. I would love to share more about how I met my goals this year with you.
