Dont Quit, Set Goals

GoalsI always find it amusing when I randomly come across pieces of paper on which I’ve jotted notes about future goals.  These random moments may not actually be all that random though.  They tend to occur at times when I’m confused about the direction my life is heading.  It’s during those times when I question every aspect of my existence.

However, when I read the note where I’ve written my goals, the picture becomes clear again.  As if a future version of my self (that has already achieved everything I intend to do) appears out of no where with my future already scripted out.  That person on paper seems so amazing to me, and I can’t wait to meet him.  I know this might sound crazy, but hey, I’m just being honest.

If there’s any lesson to take from my ramblings, it’s this.  During a rare moment of clarity, jot notes about what you want your future to be.   Then stick those notes in the most obscure places.  You’ll thank yourself later when you become frustrated with the path you’re on, and one of those notes pops up and reminds you of your purpose.  Stay focused, don’t quit, set goals.

What Are You Passionate About?

Passion 2

I came across these powerful words on Facebook the other day, and thought it would be worthwhile to share.  I’ve always been focused on living life in a way that fulfills my purpose, while also engaging in things that I’m passionate about.  It may not always be possible to connect your vocation to your passion, but I believe that this is a goal we should all strive for.  Achieving this goal may require you to make difficult changes, and you may not always have the support of the people in your inner circle.  But sometimes you have to trust in yourself, and make a leap of faith.  Once you get to a place where your passion is directly connected to how you make a living, you’ll never want to go back.
