Thinking about planning your goals can be so overwhelming, and I for one, cannot begin to tell you what I’ve done to motivate myself to do the things that I’ve set out to do, let alone write them down. However, I’ve learned over the years that there is a deeper more meaningful reason for writing down your goals. In this post I am going to share my personal experience, naming Three Reasons Why You Should Write Down Your Goals.
One: Writing Allows You To Keep Track
As simple as it may seem, writing allows you to keep on track with your goals. Yes, I know that very idea is so frustrating as we all have written our goals down, and yet forgotten where we placed our notes or even where to find them. Knowing and understanding that life is just full of so much to think about and one would assume that you would remember your goals every day but that in itself is also overwhelming. That’s why I think it is so important to be intentional about your goals by prioritizing your busy schedule and investing in a planner. My top pick is the “Passion Planner”. I’ve purchased three planners (four years ago) prior to this one and believe me, this was the best purchase I ever made. The main thing I love the most about this planner is the RoadMap. This gave me greater confidence and motivation to plan by having measurable short-term, interim, and long-term goals. Because of this, I was able to prioritize at the end of each year for the year to come on what I wanted to accomplish in 3, 6 months, one year, three years, and lifetime! Needless to say, I am loyal to this brand which I carry each day to support and allow me to be in control of my time, build a habit of writing and allow healthy conditioning of the mind to be in control of my destiny. Purchase your Passion Planner and receive 10% off.
Two: Conditioning Your Mind By Writing
It is proven that writing is a natural way of the mind allowing you to take notes on paper but also in your sub-conscience and by doing so it manifests itself in the physical overtime because you are going about your day with this goal in your sub-conscience and naturally attaining the goal/s indirectly with or without thinking because you have conditioned your mind to believe this goal should or must be achieved. This is one of the steps that is the easiest to do and not to do but also the most important. That’s why I suggest reading “How To Condition Your Mind” blog post to help you work towards this very attainable goal and keep you on track- Coming soon.

Three: Put In What You Want To Get Back
For some people, they believe that there is a higher being, God, Jesus, or even the Universe. From my personal experience, I believe that as a man thinketh so is he. I think that when you put these goals in writing, you also set yourself to believe in them and set your mind on these goals, and in doing so you sometimes can already notice the feeling of accomplishing those goals. For some, this can be contributed to the energy you omit when you decide that this goal has to be accomplished by putting it in the Universe. That energy will definitely be returned to you accomplished, focused and attained and when setbacks come it is always great to remember “this is Temporary” and “nothing worthwhile comes easy!”
If you are wondering more about connecting with the Universe, I would encourage you to watch ” The Secret” on Netflix and follow the amazing Sarah Prout to learn more about connecting with the Universe and what that means for you.
Thank you for spending time with me. Continue to keep up with my journey so you can see what the Universe is continuing to do in my life! xx
