Why You Should Make a “101 Lifetime Goals” List


Do you have a lifetime goals list? You should!

Years ago, I made a 100 things I want to do before I die and never looked at it again. You know what? Years later when I saw that list, I had done almost half of them.

Isn’t that incredible?

Jack Canfield recently wrote a blog post about making a 101 Lifetime Goals list. Here is an excerpt:

Experts on the science of success know that the brain is a goal-seeking organism. Whatever goal you give to your subconscious mind, it will work night and day to achieve it.

However, one goal isn’t good enough. Some goals take longer to achieve than others – and if you spend years working toward only one objective, you’re likely to get discouraged when it doesn’t happen right away.

But when you have a long list of goals you’d like to achieve, you have more to strive for, and more opportunities to check those goals off your list. And the rush you feel every time you check one of those goals off the list will inspire you to accomplish even more of them!

What goals do YOU want to achieve in your lifetime?

Make a list of 101 goals you’d like to achieve in your life. Be as specific as possible. Include details such as when they will happen, where they will happen, how much you’ll make, what model you’ll buy, what size it will be, and so on.

Keep your goals somewhere you can review them often. You might want to put them on a deck of 3”x5” cards you shuffle through every morning, on a poster or piece of paper you hang on the wall beside your computer, or in a book you read each night before you fall asleep. By keeping them top of mind, you’ll be more likely to make them a reality.

And every time you achieve one of your goals, check it off the list and celebrate what you’ve managed to accomplish in your life!

I keep a vision board beside my bed with the things I want to accomplish, as well as places I want to go. This is a great visual reminder of your goals list.

As Jack said, make the list, be specific and put a time limit on it.

My husband did this about 6 months ago and was amazed how quickly life arranged itself to help him accomplish his goals.

You can do it too! Make your list today and start living the life of your dreams!
