Goal Setting

Goal Setting...
It's amazing just how many people set goals, yet the number of people that fail to achieve their goals is staggering.

Having a goal helps you focus your time and energy on the things that matter most in your life. Without goals, you can feel unsure of yourpurpose, what you want to do and where you want to go in life - ultimately leading to a lack of results and the potential for stress and a lack of feeling happiness.

If you have 60 seconds, I would love for you to set yourself a goal for today.Try itout for today. Challenge yourself and go over-and-above what you would normally do.

It can be anything that is important to you. Perhaps it's to meet someone new. Perhaps it's to write a page of your novel. Perhaps it's to exercise for 30 minutes. Whatever it is, make it challenging and push yourself.

Remember, Goal setting helps you achieve more.



One day, a professor entered his classroom and asked his students to prepare for a surprise test. 
They all waited anxiously at their desks for the exam to begin. The professor handed out the exams with the text facing down, as usual. 

Once, he handed them all out, he asked the students to turn over the papers. To everyone’s surprise, there were no questions–just a black dot in the center of the paper. The professor, seeing the expression on 
everyone’s faces, told them the following: “I want you to write about what you see there.” The students, confused, got started on the inexplicable task. 

At the end of the class, the professor took all the exams, and started reading each one of them out loud in front of all the students. All of them, with no exception, defined the black dot, trying to explain its position in the center of the sheet. After all had been read, the classroom silent, the professor started to explain: “I’m not going to grade you on this, I just wanted to give you something to think about. No one wrote about the white part of the paper. Everyone focused on the black dot – and the same thing happens in our lives. However, we insist on focusing only on the black dot – the health issues that bother us, the lack of money, the complicated relationship with a family member, the disappointment with a friend. The dark spots are very small when compared to everything we have in our lives, but they are the ones that pollute our minds. 

Take your eyes away from the black dots in your 
Enjoy each one of your blessings, each moment that life gives you. 
Be happy and live a life filled with love!”


Always Remember,

Underneath every adversity hides a gift with your name on it. There is a purpose behind every problem - the Universe is preparing you for something bigger and better. So never, ever, ever give up.

So remember: no matter what you're going through right now. No matter how desperately you need things to change. No matter how bad you've screwed up - I can almost guarantee you, I've been there or lower.

And I still managed to pick myself up and bounce back higher than ever before.
