I am very goal orientated. I like to have a goal, a plan and achieve it. I set them high, so even if I don't always reach my goal I am continually stretching myself and close to high is better than just aiming low.
I have been thinking a lot about what I want to achieve over the next few years, things that are on my bucket list, sorting out our finances so we are financially free and more. Some of these things have changed slightly since I set them, but things are happening.
I have planned to complete at least one thing from my bucket list every year. At least one, but preferably quite a few more. Some of my plans are not really doable until my kids are older, but many of them can be done now.
I really want to make 2012 my year. I want to achieve things on my bucket list. I want to pay off our debt and clear it completely. I want my business to have developed and be in a position where most of the income is passive and my husband doesn't have to work.
I know I can do this. I know I am capable of great things and I know you are too.
I look at how my life has changed since starting this blog a little over 2 years ago and I am amazed.
I am now an author.
I am a freelance writer.
I make money from my blogs and other projects online, from home.
I climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
I spoke at an international conference and am about to speak at another blogging conference.
I have gotten through a period of being a single mum, another period of my husband basically being unemployed, nearly losing our house and more. I have come out on the other side and am back on my feet.
Have you ever sat down and listed your recent achievements? Or even any achievements just to see what you have done. You will probably find there are things you have done others only dream of doing.
You have one life and it is happening now! Do what you can, change what you need to and live the life you want.
