By now, you know that we are huge fans of being intentional. We believe there's real power in our thoughts and words. But, we like to up the ante even more and write goals, desires, etc. down. Ashley is notorious for writing her goals down daily! EVERY DAY.
Sure, we can let greatness happen by chance, but let's face it. That's typically not the case. Some people are born with gifts or circumstances that do indeed make accomplishing certain goals easier than others, but for normal people like Ashley and me, it takes more than that.
What I love about writing down your dreams and goals is that it lets the universe know that you are serious. Not writing it down only makes it a wish. How is it ever supposed to become tangible and achievable if it just stays a whisper in your soul? It's the equivalent of saying, "I think, I'm kinda serious about this goal." Now who could really take that seriously??
Even if you have no idea how to make it happen, or the odds seem a little bit against you, I would challenge you to write them down. Put it out there!
One of my favorite quotes in Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist is, “And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
And let me tell you, it's true.
As our first national Walk Before You Run training kicks off this week, I'm challenging each of the participants to write down their goals and continue to visit them throughout the training. And I want to challenge you to do the same.
If it's running a 5K.....write it down.
If it's losing weight......write it down.
If it's running a marathon.....write it down.
WRITE. IT DOWN.
