A Few Things About Goal Setting

It may be serendipity or maybe since I was thinking about my future goals, goal-related things are just on my radar, but all of these things came together today...

  • I stayed up until 2am watching Oprah Winfrey's Master Class last night. If you get the opportunity to watch this two-part series about Oprah's life and her success, please take it. Here words are sooo inspiring and the things she says are sooo insightful it makes you want to go out, be awesome, and conquer the world!

  • I was reading through the blog posts I wrote when I first began this blog in 2009. It is amazing how far I have come since then and it is also amazing that many of the goals that I had written down way back then actually have actually come true. At the time, I wanted to quit work and travel but there was no way in Hell that was going to happen. I was so far in debt that the idea of me quitting work was laughable. Fast forward to today when not only have I quit working, but our biggest problem now is deciding where to travel to next. Lesson: write down your goals and the universe will amaze you by helping you make them come true.

  • I just found out today that I will get to meet one of my favorite bloggers in a couple of weeks. I had the goal "meet a favorite blogger" on my list of things to accomplish this year but had no idea where I would find a blogger to meet. Today the Family on Bikes posted on FaceBook that they will be in Atlanta in a couple of weeks and they asked who wanted to meet up with them. I quickly answered back "ME!" Yet another example of how writing your goals down somehow opens the door to making them come true!

Do you have goals? Do you have them written down? If not, you should. I don't know how it works, but for me, writing my goals down has made amazing things happen that I really believe otherwise would never have come true.
