100 Life Goals Ideas That Will Empower You.
How do you wake up in the morning? Dreading the day ahead that has barely started dragging your poor self out of bed. Or happy and pumped for a new day to work on your projects and get things done, tightening the gap between you and your dreams.
Here I will share a list with 100 life goals ideas I have for myself. I hope my ideas inspire you to start your own list.
Humans are goal-driven creatures. Your subconscious mind won’t stop pursuing your objectives, trying hard to get the desired results. That is why it’s crucial to set goals for yourself to succeed in anything you do.
If you don’t have a target, you won’t know where to aim.
Set SMART Goals.
When making your list, focus on setting SMART goals: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bound.
Specific – your goal must be clear and easy to understand.
Measurable – you need to be able to measure progress. Write down the start point, and that will be your baseline for comparison. Keep checking back to ensure you are progressing and going in the right direction.
Attainable – this is not a trap, so don’t set yourself for failure. Your goal should challenge you to push yourself, but it shouldn’t be something impossible to achieve. On the other hand, be careful not to underestimate what you can do.
Relevant – your goal should align with the life you want to live and the person you want to be.
Time-bound – every goal must have a deadline attached to it to add a sense of urgency and kick you into gear. A goal with no date is just a wish.
Having goals will help you accomplish more in life and get done what moves the needle.
Many wealthy people have three goals in each area, and they focus on one goal at a time until completion.
Prioritize and rearrange your list with what is to be tackled first. Hint, it should be what will give the most results and bring you the closest to your destination.
My 100 Life Goals Ideas.
Let’s go through my 100 life goals ideas, and I won’t be offended if you want to grab some ideas for yourself. Go ahead, take the whole post if it speaks to you.
This list is to inspire you to get your goals in writing and start work on them. No matter if big or small, write them down!
Display your goals somewhere in plain sight so you can review them frequently. A vision board would be a great place!
Believe in yourself, know you can do hard things, master self-discipline, and stay committed to your future self. Empower yourself to make your dreams a reality.
