It got me thinking today, I'm 30 years young as of this writing. I see all the things happening in the world up to this point in my life. Some good, some not great at all.
As I sit here thinking about life, I start to hear the cliche phrase of "life is short". I'm starting to find that true. I remember going to school and I would hate school. I hated doing homework, I hated doing tests, I just hated waking up knowing I had to go to school and do work, and tests and homework! Those were the times that felt like an eternity. It wasn't all that bad though. I met all my friends there, gained new experiences and knowledge of people and found out a lot about myself. After High School, life just started to speed up. Friends and family are older, and you have more responsibilities.
I ask myself, what have I accomplished over the years. I have accomplished many things of course. Am I happy? Yea of course. I married a smart, beautiful, creative woman, I have my health in good order, I'm not really in debt, I say not really but my wife is with school tuition and her debt is my debt. I've owned 6 cars and 5 motorcycles. Might not matter to you but it's fun for me to know.
I'm going to do more. It's time I work harder. Grind more. I want to own property, I want to know what it's like to have a million dollars in my name, open up my own business again. I want to do more photoshoots and acting gigs. I want to own my dream car just once. I'm going to work harder. It's a slow process but, its a process. I'm working toward it.
Before you say, "you don't need money to be happy, you don't need any of that stuff", these are part of my life goals. Goals motivate me. If I decided to drop those goals, guess what, I turn into a couch potato. So let me have these goals I set for myself. It doesn't hurt you since I'm the one doing it. There's no rush to getting there. I'm going to work my way towards it. It's not like I'm stealing the money from a bank either or doing some sort of money scam, I'm working for it.
These are my thoughts as of right now. Will I cry and be depressed if I never make that million dollars or own that dream car, or own real estate? Not at all. Because in the end, I'm still going to be happy that I tried and worked hard for it. That's better than doing nothing at all. That's one of the best goals I have, and that's to keep moving.
Also note, these aren't my only goals. I have to try to figure out how people would interpret this in their head. "THAT'S HIS WHOLE GOAL? GET MONEY!?" Honestly some people WILL be selective of what they read. So here it is, NO those aren't my only goals.
