What do you desire to do in your life? This is exactly what should be on a life list; all those dreams and wishes you’ve pushed into the back of your head, all those lost fantasies you had as a six year-old, all those ideas you abandoned. But guess what?
Those dreams can be redeemed on a life list and can come true if you set your mind to it. The goal of a life list is to accomplish all of those dreams you wrote down, giving you confidence and buoyancy. However, the problem with some people’s life lists is that they don’t do anything to make it happen. You can’t just hope and wish it will come true, because it most likely won’t.
If you really want your life list to come true, you need to do something about your wishes. The most wonderful thing about a life list is that you will see it every day, so you’ll think about it each day. This will lead to wondering how to accomplish it and eventually making real plans to achieve these goals. Now, some may think that having far-fetched goals dangling in front of their face every day will discourage them. There are always things to do and people to see, leaving no time. But these goals will encourage you to take baby steps while still doing what needs to be done. However you decide to accomplish your goal, you’ll eventually find a way to accomplish them, leaving satisfaction and a great memory. What do you want on your life list?
