I mentioned recently that in the hubbub of the holidays and buying Fearsome his Top Hat, that I completely forgot to write out my personal goals for 2015. I did my business goals for my company and my business coach….but the personal ones slipped through. Personal goals support my business goals because they give me a WHY.
Why do I do what I do? I sell homes. I enjoy helping people find their place, their home, their nest. I also enjoy helping people invest and make the most of their investment. But why? I do get satisfaction, enjoyment, purpose and self worth from what I do, but I need more. I need the emotional, personal reason for getting out there and taking the extra step. Work can be very rewarding and enjoyable, but so much more so when I have the personal goals that are supported by my income, my business.
Personal goals give me a why. When I have a why going the extra mile and giving 110% is easy. I finished my 2015 personal goals today and I feel good. I have the extra spark to rise to the challenge tomorrow and make this one remarkable year. The one personal goal I will share here is that I will learn ASL this year.
American Sign Launguage has always interested me. I have a few deaf friends that I can communicate with because they do read lips, but having this ability will make it so much easier for us to communicate. I needn’t put it all on them to read my lips when I can learn ASL, they cannot learn to hear. I will open myself to new friends that can’t read my lips. I will deepen relationships and can help when others need to communicate with hearing impaired. I can grow my soul, charachter and mind by developing this skill and sharing it with others.
Fearsome likes the goals I have set, he plans to help keep me accountable.
