It’s my birthday, and I’ll blog how I want to…about GOALS!
Since 23 is kind of anti-climatic, I need to make it interesting. So here it comes….
- I’m going into this year with BIG THINGS in mind. BIG BIG BIG. Why? Because I want to be happy and the only way I am happy is if I’m striving for stuff! When I get bored…that’s when things suck. When I feel like I’m working towards something…that’s when I find my zone.
“If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy, and inspired your hopes.” -Andrew Carnegie
- I’m going to KEEP setting them. So some of them might be smaller goals to start off with, and that’s fine because when I cross them off I will add one immediately so I don’t get complacent.
“If you are bored with life, if you don’t get up every morning with a burning desire to do things–you don’t have enough goals.” –Lou Holtz
- Looking back on this year, I can see 22 was a HUGE year for me. I’d just started to really get into touch with who I wanted to be this time last year, and though it’s always shifting, I think I’m getting there. That means I can set goals that really push me to be that person!
“You want to set a goal that is big enough that in the process of achieving it you become someone worth becoming.” -Jim Rohn
- I will aim for big things. I’m already starting to go big or go home (i.e. setting my sights on Columbia, but I think doing so more often is important. When I worked at lulu, they said you were supposed to feel like you were going to puke when you read your goals. Also that 50% of them you shouldn’t end up achieving. Guess perfectionism is a no go, eh?
“Everything you want is just outside your comfort zone.” –Robert Allen
“The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we mis sit, but that it is too low and we reach it.” -Michelangelo
- My goals will NOT be fear based or revolve around what I want to avoid (past mistakes, etc.). Instead, they’ll reflect the things I’ve come to realize without being consumed with avoiding making the same mistakes again (because why would I do that?).
“Create your future from your future, not your past.” –Werner Ehard
