In 2017 I made a mental note to read more books?. When I completed a book I would scribble the name in a notebook. When I reflected on my year, I was glad that I read more, but I didn’t feel a sense of accomplishment.
Looking back, how could I feel successful? I didn’t set a goal to achieve, I was just flying by the seat of my pant. Since I wasn’t striving for anything there was nothing to celebrate. Since my whole blog is focused on goal-setting and completing goals. I figured a book reading list would be a great place to start this goal setting journey.
Like your children, each of my girls has various strengths. When I see one of their strengths shining through, I always remind them to use their powers for good and not evil. As a woman, you are an amazingly powerful creature! When it comes to others, especially your offspring, you can demonstrate unimaginable strength. You show strength in how you uplift, care for and love others. Yet, when it comes to yourself you don’t use your amazing powers for good. Instead, you take the passion from your strength and channel into causing severe damage to yourself.
I created this list in my early 30’s, and I decided to transfer it to a blog post so I can document my achievements. Looking at the list it’s amazing how much I’ve accomplished already. I wrote this list so long ago, it’s just reinforces the importance of setting goals. Since I didn’t blog along the way I will go back and write a blog post on the items I have already completed so I can share my journey with you. I will turn 40 in 3 years so I’m looking forward to seeing what I will accomplish in that time.
