I think it so important to set goals, make a plan to achieve them, and enjoy the journey of reaching your goals without letting them take over your life! I personally will always have goals, milestones and dreams in my life. Since a very young age I have always had high hopes and big dreams. I have put myself out there, pushed my life in the direction I thought best and not let anyone discourage me- instead used their negativity to fuel my determination. Sometimes I fail and sometimes I succeed, but the important thing is that I’m not afraid to go after what I want. When I failed, I learned valuable lessons and I think that has made all the difference. Don’t count failures, but Remember Lessons! I believe luck has been on my side more often than not, that there has always been a Guardian Angel on my shoulder, and I couldn’t do anything without the support and constant positive thoughts from my Mom, Grandmother and others. Evaluating my life, my goals, how to reach my goals and my past history with goals- will help me reach my Goals for 2012. Think deeply about what you want to do in 2012 and make it REAL- Because YES, you can!!
Here are a few great quotes on goals to inspire you… They will inspire me all year!!
