The #1 reason why I'll always have goals...I can never be complacent. If you don’t know by now, my goal is to write 60 books by the end of 2024. It sounds crazy and that’s a lot to accomplish but I already envision myself achieving that.
Yes, that is unprecedented and very rarely done but let's just say I always have content to share and to be written. Once, I accomplish a goal, I move on. There's no time for me to sit around and goof off. There's no time to celebrate, go out and have fun. There's people I need to reach, an audience to cater to, millions of people that don't even know I exist and that I write.
I'm competitive as hell and I want to win at this. I'm an athlete so those competitive juices kick in, in my mind and then I know I have to get to work. Taking days off is rare and when I do, it's never longer than 2 days. Even when I do that, I feel guilty for doing it and it's because I've been working at this for a while so it's weird to take time off.
I'll always have goals because there's always a new idea or concept for a book that I can write that'll resonate in someone's mind. My mind never stops chugging away like a well oiled machine. I don't think my mind will ever stop chugging away and if it did, I wouldn't know what to do.
Even though I strive for peace of mind, just maybe my mind needs to be a little chaotic sometimes in order for me to write the content that I do. Maybe your mind works like mine, and that's a great thing, just keep plugging away.
You should always have goals and keep striving to get better at whatever you're good at. What you're passionate about should always be your motivation daily. Some days you're not going to have it, that's just part of who we are, but if you have goals to accomplish, you'll always keep going.
Always remember, nothing happens overnight and the journey is worth it if you see the end goal. In the meanwhile, enjoy the grind to get to the end goal.
Be good and accomplish your goals.
