Happy New Year to you! I hope 2017 was good to you, and wish you even better for 2018. I'm so excited for a new year, new goals, and new beginnings—big ones for our family as we'll be welcoming our twins into the world very soon! Those big changes haven't stopped me from creating and working towards big goals and dreams, for myself and our family.
I recently shared with fellow travel agents my goals for my little travel business for 2018, along with that we are expecting twins soon. My goals & dreams were ridiculed for being too big. Did I let this get me down? NO WAY! It has only added fuel to my fire. I've already marked off a few of those goals and we are only 5 days into the year. So ain't no stoppin' me!
Why do I share this story? Well, because there is always going to be someone out there to put you down. Go after your dreams, and never let someone tell you they are too big! You CAN accomplish them! So what helps me really focus on my goals? Writing them down! I've made print outs & lists for my goals for 2018, and have created a fun graphic to help me stay on track with my new bucket list—my forty b4 forty list. Though I'm just now sharing, I've had my 40 b4 40 list together for several months now, since August (my 30th birthday) actually. I was so inspired by how much I accomplished on my 30 b4 30, I knew I had to do the same for the next decade. I had so much fun thinking out of the box for big & small goals for this list, and I'm so excited to mark them off.
Pretty lofty? I think not! Even if I don't accomplish them all, accomplishing even just one thing is something to be proud of! What are your goals for 2018?
Today, I'm celebrating my 30th birthday!
I'm celebrating life, love, and all that I have accomplished!
I created a 30B430 list about 8 years ago, and truly NEVER thought I'd mark off all that I did. Since today id my 30th, I thought I'd share one final update on the list. You'll notice, the list is actually 40 items, mainly because I am indecisive, but that didn't stop me from marking off many! I was only short on marking off 8 of the 40, and I am SO proud of that. When I created that list, I'd never flown on a plane, didn't have the greatest self-esteem, and rarely tried new things, but this written list changed everything! It inspired me, pushed me, and motivated me. I believe writing down my goals and keeping an on going list, along with so many people routing for me, really kept me going with the list. Do you have your own written bucket list? If not, I encourage you to write down those goals & dreams, keep them where you can see them, and just keep swimming!
We'll see if I come up with another list for before 40! If so, I plan on carrying over the goals I didn't hit onto the next list. Plus, I have some additional goals & dreams in mind. Hope you have a wonderful day & stay inspired!
