Goals are something we all have, whether they are short term or long term. Goals are what motivates us to wake up every day and work harder. They give us hope for a better and fulfilling future. Today, i wanted to share with you all 5 goals i want to achieve. Some, i am already working on while others i hope to achieve in the near future! I personally love reading other people’s goals. It inspires me and makes me reflect on my own goals. Hopefully, this post can do the same for you!
LEARN ABOUT MYSELF
One of the most important goals that i want to achieve is learning about myself. I feel like so many of us go through life without ever taking the timely to truly know ourselves. We find ourselves in jobs we hate, in friendships that drain us and activities that only satisfy us externally. I want to get to know myself on a deeper level. My life really lacks true and genuine connections/relationships so i am hoping that by getting to know myself, i can attract the right kind of people in my life. I love reading articles and books on self discovery. One of the articles i found i helpful was this one by Mel Selig. I would also recommend taking this Myers Briggs Personality Test. There are a lot of mixed reviews on it but i actually found it quite useful. I am an INFJ-T (advocate personality) which i can totally relate to. If you have already taken this test or will take it, leave your results in the comments below. I am quite curious to see what personality type you guys are!
This is something i do not do much of and really want to make more effort to do so! I guess it is partially due to my lack of independence, financial reasons and yes desi parents *eyerolls*! Travelling is said to have so many benefits for us but i would say for me, the biggest reason is because i want to increase my perspective. I have always been so fascinated by the idea of how there are so many different people in this world leading so many different lives. We get so caught up in our own lives and our own routines that we forget there is an entire world out there just waiting to be explored. The amount of knowledge, ideas and skills we could learn by travelling is just so fascinating to me. Even if it is something as simple as visiting another town or city, i want to accomplish this goal of travelling more!
LEAVING MY COMFORT ZONE
One of the goals i want to achieve is to be more willing to take risks and force myself out of my comfort zone. “Comfort-the enemy of progress”- P.T. BARNUM. When i first read this quote, i had sudden realization that i am so willing to stay in my comfort zone. It is so hard for me to leave it because my comfort zone feels safe, familiar and certain. How am i meant to achieve my goals, grow my mind and experience new things if i stay in the same place. I have noticed that whenever i have an opportunity to do something new, my brain always comes up with so many reasons on why i should not do it. Why? Because it is out of my comfort zone. This is definitely the hardest one but i am working on it. I know in the long run, this is going to lead me to some amazing places!
GO TO A BEAUTY SCHOOL
I have been passionate about makeup for as long as i can remember. I never really thought about turning this passion in to a career until recently. Perhaps because i always viewed it as a hobby or perhaps because i was afraid of what people would think of me pursuing a career in beauty. Being able to learn how to do makeup easily through Youtube and social media has really helped me enhance my skills. That being i said, i believe knowing how to do your makeup is completely different from doing other people’s makeup. Going to a beauty school would really help me to learn how to do makeup on different face shapes and skin types along with so many other things. I am super excited to achieve this goal and for once, go to school to learn about something i am actually passionate about.
“Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body”- Joseph Addison. Reading more is that typical goal that most us of seem to have. Let’s be honest, finding time to read in this digital and busy world of ours can be quite the challenge. It can be a challenge even for those of us who love reading. I always plan to read before bed time but somehow get so immersed in scrolling through Instagram and Twitter that i completely neglect the reading. This is definitely something i am actively working on. I also want to start reading more books that help expand my knowledge. Do not get me wrong, I love myself a good old thriller novel but i want to start investing in books that introduce me to new ideas and help inspire me. I recently picked up the book Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind after hearing Kalel on you-tube rave about it. I have only just started it but i am enjoying and would really recommend you all to check it out too!
Now that you have read my goals, i want you to go ahead and think about your own! Share them down below if you feel like. If you have any goals that are similar to mine, let me know in the comments as well!
I really hope this post has helped inspire you in some way!
THANK YOU FOR READING! xx
