I was in Canadian Tire the other day chatting with the cashier who was a very cheerful ambassador for the company. She told me that she was feeling especially positive because, for the first time, she had actually written down some goals for herself. Good on her!
I was also recently talking to a very successful woman who describes herself as a fatalist, suggesting that what will be, will be. Its hard to argue success, but perhaps if she “nudged” Karma a little she would be even more successful!
I’m a big believer in taking life into your own hands … write down some goals, make a plan to reach them and continually reassess to see where you are. EVERYONE falls off the wagon now and again (or even often!) but goals help you get back in control.
Not too long ago I wrote a blog entry called Goal Time, which had nothing to do with either the World Cup OR my recent return to the soccer field! It is a pragmatic look at how you could very easily take charge of your life … and just maybe nudge Karma a little in your favor! Take a read, and maybe dip your toe into this goal thing!
