Goals: What’s the Point?



It’s hard to admit to yourself, much less others, that you have big aspirations for yourself. It’s hard to think of them as more than pipe dreams and fanciful wishes. It’s hard to get up the nerve to go for it.

That’s where having goals comes in, especially when you break them into steps and even smaller, more manageable bits.

Even though it can be intimidating and overwhelming to sit down to set them, it’s also freeing and empowering.

By setting goals, you are:

~giving yourself the chance to be successful;

~honoring yourself and your dreams

~giving yourself permission to go for it;

~taking the first steps toward building a life that’s meaningful to you;

~living your life in a way that has a positive impact on others;

~creating something that has the potential to change the world, or at least your corner of it.



Your homework today is to continue thinking about your dreams and the steps you think you’ll need to take in order to get there. Have fun with this part. Brainstorm with yourself and think of your dreams from different angles—turn them upside down and/or inside out. You may discover something very interesting!

You can do this!

I’m so proud of you!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,
