Want to be bolder in 2023? Start by clarifying your purpose. Before you take any action, spend some time reflecting on your values and what is most important to you. Visualize where you want to be in 12 months and the kind of life you want to live. Once these goals are clearer, work to create an action plan and write it down.

Think bold and big, and get creative when it comes to planning out how to reach your goals. Consider new strategies, resources or people who can help propel you forward. Take some thoughtful risks, and set yourself up for success by making use of all the resources available to you.

One of the best ways to create your best year yet is by being bold and daring. This means taking risks, speaking up and going after what you want. When you take a risk, it can be scary, but it could also lead to amazing opportunities. Being willing to step out of your comfort zone can open up many doors that would have otherwise remained closed.

When you take a chance on a bold move, make sure you are aligning yourself with your purpose. Know your "why," and stay focused on what matters most to you. If a particular opportunity or venture doesn't align with your core values, it might be worth passing up, even if it could potentially lead to success. That success won't mean much if it doesn't align with your purpose.

You'll find yourself open to new experiences and possibilities that wouldn't have been available without the courage to take a chance. Here are 10 tips to help you have the boldest and best year yet!

1. Take a chance on something that makes you a little nervous, start small. Break out of your comfort zone.

2. Speak up, share your ideas, and ask questions without fear of judgment or rejection.

3. Reevaluate what you want to take into 2023 and what you want to leave behind in 2022. Make a list.

4. Make a list of goals and the "why" for each. Get as specific as possible.

6. Celebrate your successes, no matter how small they may seem.

7. Take time for yourself, and practice self-care as often as possible.
