Just trying to change the world, one blogpost at a time.

I am on a mission.

"Wake up each day with a goal, even if that goal is just to relax."

What are your long and short term goals? Regardless of your age or situation these are questions that should be on your mind. Long term goals, as touched on, can give you direction and enable in good decision making over all. Short term goals usually involve a breakdown of things in order to reach your long term goal. Let's say in the long run, you aim to be rich, a short term goal could be to save a certain amount per month. People tend to put different time periods on their goals. for one person short term could mean 3 months whilst for another it could mean one year. Whatever your time frame is, have some targets in mind to work towards otherwise you'll find yourself aimlessly wandering through life, going nowhere.

Purpose. Give one to each day and you'll find yourself going to bed with a sense of accomplishment. Naturally, we all have different aspirations, whatever yours are it's important to continue to push yourself each day, challenge yourself and never become complacent. Also once you have these goals in mind, stick with them, don't make excuses or leave them til tomorrow. It's easy to say you want to do something, actually getting it done is a whole other battle. It all comes down to how badly you want it; if you want it bad enough, nothing can stand in your way. 

Your mission doesn't have to be extreme. You don't have to want to save the world or be a millionaire to be called ambitious. Ambition is simply a strong desire and determination for success, whatever that success may look like to you. Only you can truly know what you want to do! Dream big, as big as you like, and don't worry about what other people think of your dreams. Of course be realistic, but don't shut the door on certain possibilities just because someone else might not think you they are possible. Whatever you want to do, do it to the best of your ability; put as much into it as you can and you'll see it come back to you tenfold. Do not be discouraged by a slow start, the further you go beyond your limit to make something happen, the more accomplished you will feel.

Now regardless of what our individual missions are, one goal we should have in common is the goal to be the best versions of ourselves. Make sure you put in some time to develop as a person; find time to reflect and make steps towards being all that you can be. Even just one step forward is always going to be better than standing still.

Stay Blessed,
