Some of the most important things in life are not taught to us.
Do you think you could write down 100 Life Goals? Why not decide to live life abundantly by designing your own personalized list of 100 life goals you will achieve over the next 10, 20, 30 years? And why not design your WOW life, where you look back and say "WOW, I can't believe I did all that!
What would a life of WOW look like to you? What does it take for you to say WOW when
you are talking to another person and hear them explain some experience they’ve
had? What would it take to impress your
very own self where you would say “WOW, I can’t believe I’ve just did that!”. Let me help paint the picture of what a
life of WOW could look like.
The good news is that you are designing your life, and no two lives are the same. Your dream life will be entirely different to that of everyone else you know.
We are also starting from different places
in our lives. Some of us are fortunate
to have been born to families in countries that already have a high level of
prosperity. For those of you that are
not, some of these goals will seem like an impossibility. For others, you may already have been living
the dream life that countless others can only strive for.
The main point of the 100 Goals Club is to inspire you to design a life, instead of just letting your life happen. And while you’re designing your life, why not design a life of WOW?
The main concept of this club is to design your life so well that you end up at the end of your life with no regrets for not having lived your life a certain way.
There are too many of us who live in our comfort zone. If you live in your comfort zone your entire life, there is a high certainty that you will have some major regrets in your life. There are so many people, when questioned during their last year of life about parting with any regrets, who respond with something like: I wish I . . .
In fact, nurses in hospitals or hospices are the ones that hear the regrets of the dying, expressed as:
Of these, the number one regret that people have on their death bed is that they did not pursue their dreams and goals. Don’t be one of these people—start living a life that you design.
When your health and youth have faded, you’ll reflect on what the important things in life are, and you will realize what is truly valuable . . . your friends and family. That is why this book of 100 life goals has an entire section on setting friend and family goals. There is no point in developing high net worth through working hard at your career or business, achieving all your goals but achieving a failing grade with your family. The most important people are your friends and family. Live your life so that they are there for you when you need them the most.
Knowing all of this, the purpose of this book is to inspire you to live your own unique, purposeful life. Achieving just some of these 100 life goals, or modifications to these 100 goals, is something you can do. You can go and live out your own life of WOW. Live your life to avoid future regrets.
Said another way . . . Live with No Regrets!
In designing your balanced life, one with no regrets, life goals are to be written in 10 categories.
The above Goal areas are listed in a rank order that in my opinion represent the priority in which they should be viewed within the context of your life.
Our success in life begins with our own commitment to Personal Development, which is the reason I’ve started with it.
Next is your own personal health. Without good living health, the rest of our goal accomplishment and life suffer.
Next is Family and Friends. There is no point in being successful with your career and lifestyle goals without a strong foundation of family and friends.
Then is your hobbies and passions, which are the things you truly love doing. These need to be a priority in your life, otherwise they will fall victim to your career, which is the next important goal area.
Goal categories 7, 8 and 9 of the 10 Life Goal categories are like "icing on the cake", and will lead to further life fulfillment . . . travel, adventure, lifestyle, These goal areas, like hobbies and passions, help create a life that is exciting, bold and full of adventure. The challenge is that they require money, often lots of it. When you do well with your financial and career goals, you'll be able to better enjoy the fruits of your labor.
The challenge with listing these Goals in a ranked sequence like this is that this is just my personal opinion, and you may have a different view. That’s okay. The most important thing is that you are setting and achieving balanced goals across this list of 10 Life Goal areas.
Most of the Goal setting self-help books and programs I listened to in my early days seemed to focus on the exciting goals, the more traditional goals related to Lifestyle, Travel and Adventure goals. These are the goals that are easier to write and ones which you can get excited about. These goals are important to living a good life too. They are often the goals that provide the “why” do I need to strive and improve and grow. Why do I need to develop myself and have a great career, besides providing for my family, its to live the good life, to travel the world, to live in a nice house, to not have to worry about money constantly?
The 100 Life Goals are goals that I’ve modified from my original list of 100 goals created at the age of 30, to have more universal appeal to the majority of people living in the developed world. While they are goals that I think you will find important, you may find some of them to be completely irrelevant for you. If you do, no problem in changing any of them or all of them. My main desire is that they give you ideas and inspire you to create your own list of 100 Life Goals.
Take the time to design these goals that inspire you to live fully.
From my book 100 Life Goals, the following is a summary of each goal across the 10 life areas. These are goals that I have set for myself and represent the most important life goals which I believe to lead to a life well lived. For you, may they be a starting point for reflecting on your own personal goals.
Feel free to select some or all of these goals for yourself. We all come from different backgrounds and different ideas on what is important throughout our life time. May this list inspire you to write out your own list of goals, whether 1, 10, 50, 100 or more.
