Set your goals high, and don’t stop until you get there.
– Bo Jackson
Do you lie in bed at night, staring at the ceiling while you imagine the life you desperately want? There’s no shame in admitting you do, because I always do. Let’s face it, I bet you’ve thought about winning the lottery more than once. And that’s okay, because dreams are healthy.
But, I want to talk about going another step further than dreams; Goals. Recently, I realised just how many goals I actually have, and without tangible proof they were just a flying fancy fluttering through my thoughts. What did I do?
I created a Goals jar, and then filled it up with everything I want to achieve.
Because I have every intention of achieving every single one no matter how long it takes to get there. Without something to look forward to, to strive towards, I float around wandering aimlessly. I need direction, I thrive when I’m busy working towards my newest idea. It gives me purpose, a reason to go on. However, I’m not saying it’s easy. But even with the knock backs, negativity, criticism, and judgement, I still have the goal that keeps me on track. I still believe that I’m capable of achieving it because I want it. It’s important to me.
Don’t get me wrong, I have massive aspirations; buy an Aston Martin DBS, pen a successful television series… But I’m willing to put in the time and effort it takes to get there because nobody else is going to do it for me.
I’ve seen my dream, I’ve created a goal, and now it’s time for me to achieve it.
I hope you chase yours too.
