Summertime is approaching and one thing that probably most of us have in common is the wish for that beach body that can be shown off with dignity, either in swimwear or summer skirts.

A new year, new possibilities and maybe even new goals? But how do we set our goals in order to reach them? Your goal might be to earn more money? To buy a new apartment? To be in better shape? Or to travel more? Having dreams and goals is not hard, the difficult part is to reach them. What do we need to do in order to reach them?
