Bucket List

This is my #BucketList where I’ve compiled a list of all the things I want to do, feel, experience, expose, see and achieve before I die. My #BucketList is going to maximize every moment of my existence and live my life to the fullest.

“Imagine being able to say at the end of your life’s journey, ‘Wow‘ What a ride!”

And what better way to have a fulfilling, adventurous life than by creating a #BucketList. It’s a reminder of accomplishing highlights and personal goals in your lifetime. Some of my items on the list are spontaneous adventures I want to visit around the world or foundations I want to create to help millions of people. You should definitely include travel on your life list, seeing the world, embracing new cultures and exposing yourself to what interests you. Include all your different adventures no matter how big or small.

I think it is important to have goals in your life because it becomes something you want to accomplish. The reason why you set goals is so you can achieve more than you would without goals. Goal setting works, the things you accomplish make you feel good about yourself and you want to make more goals to continue feeling good.

Goal Setting
Copyright (http://www.benbruno.com/)

The key to setting goals it to make sure these goals inspire you. If you have lost interest in your goal, that it’s going to eventually become a burden and uninspired you. Start small by writing down two goals to accomplish a day (i.e. present, personal, positive tense) things you want to accomplish after you wake up and before you go to bed. It allows you to subconsciously work on them and be focused throughout the day.

Include lifelong goals, goals that you want to accomplish in 1, 2 or even 5 years of your lifetime. Your goals don’t have to include a proper outcome; they can be enjoyable and worthwhile. Goals keep us motivated; they align our life’s true purpose. Include goals that correspond to your calling, what motivates you and excites you for a long period of time. On the other hand, goals that are disconnected from our life’s purpose, or are arbitrary, or were chosen just because they “seem like the right thing to do”, or were selected because someone else thinks that they should matter, will soon become burdensome and lead to feelings of self-defeat and goal-resignation.
I’ll get there, just keep clicking back to see how much of my list is complete.
