Setting Goals & Mental Health

I have dreams. I have goals. And I’m sick and tired of stopping myself from chasing these dreams and goals.

I wanted to talk about how I think that setting goals is a great thing but that I'm really not that big of a fan of it. Simply because putting together a list of goals I want to achieve puts me under a lot of pressure. It's a #mentalhealth thing.

HOWEVER, my ONE MAJOR goal for the end of 2019 is to become a full-time self employed virtual assistant / social media manager / photographer. Really just a variety of these things because they make me happy and I enjoy doing them.

I don't think it's a wild combination. Whatsoever. I do believe to dream big.

I used to limit my dreams thinking that why in the world would someone like me be able to reach these goals/dreams. Thinking that I don't have what it takes. Thinking "why would someone want to invest in me when I fail them?" Even though I KNOW I have what it takes and I KNOW I won't fail them.

Again, it's a #mentalhealth thing. And while I'm working on my mental health, the more I realize that it's all part of the #mindsetgame. Never have I thought that having the right mindset is the greatest power you can own!

So many times have I heard: it's all about your mindset

Not many times have I believed in it.

Up until now since my mind started to shift. I have dreams. I have goals. And I'm sick and tired of stopping myself from chasing these dreams and goals.

There's more to life than working a 9-5, being limited to 30 days off work per year. Stuck in a damn rat race. Stuck with doing the same thing day in and day out at the same damn desk. Having to say no to family/friend meetings that live out of town.

I'm going to get to my goal by the end of this year. I want to work on my own schedule, for myself. Go on travels whenever I please and see my family & friends more often. πŸ’ƒπŸ½ PS: #happyfriday everyone & have a great weekend. What have you planned for this weekend?
