You've only got one life and this is it. No second chances, no redo's, you just have this one and it's your job, your responsibility, to make it as memorable as possible. Other people might chip in every now and again to give you advice or make judgements but at the end of the day you still need to choose what you want to do with your time.
We've just started a new year and this is an opportunity for you to take stock of your life and start living it for yourself. It's time to start doing more of the things you like, getting rid of negative influences, and make changes if necessary. But there's a catch: you only get out what you put in. If you want big, life-changing results you better be prepared to put in the hard work! This could be the year where everything changes for you, but it's not going to happen by magic.
It's all about choices - all those tiny choices you make everyday really do add up quick. So what we want you to do is tell us about your lifestyle and your approach to life and we'll reveal what exciting things await you in 2018!
