Give yourself permission to explore a new goal.
How to do it - Take a few moments to think about a current goal you're seeking. It doesn't have to be a big one; it can be medium-sized or even small. Does it make you feel inspired or not? If one (or more) of your goals leaves you feeling less than excited, allow yourself the space and flexibility to try something new in its place.
Why it matters - When we make goals for ourselves, it's easy to seek success in the areas in which we're most comfortable. While this familiar territory can help us avoid failure, it can also prevent our goals from helping us learn and grow. By taking on a different sort of goal and facing fears of the unknown, you create the potential to uncover a new inspiration that could enrich your life.
Fun Fact - Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple, attributed his idea to include a variety of typefaces for Macs to a calligraphy course he once visited during college.
Well, paying off my old bills leaves me less than excited, but not paying them off is not an option. So let me see if there's something else ...
Just kidding. Actually it sounds very exciting.
I've dug through all my goals as mentioned here on this board, and I just haven't come up with anything that isn't just wonderful. Every goal I have, I consider thrilling and exciting. But almost all of them tie into getting an income. The only mutable goal I can think of would be to put my blog on ice for a few weeks and make some immediate income selling some affiliate product. While I might have done that three months ago (if I had known of such a possibility), I think doing that now would be just bad for the energy I've been building with this travel blog which I want to get rolling first.
So that leaves: no change, stick to plan, forge ahead. Get plan A going, =then= I can add plan B.
Thank you for the encouragement, Nancy M.!
