Successful people set goals.
We hear that all the time.
For some reason, I have a problem with setting goals.
Maybe it’s because I don’t feel like I’m far enough along my own journey to even have goals in sight.
Which is silly, and actually it is probably more a case of me not taking the time to sit down and set some goals.
Oh, so, I’m just being lazy! Unlike this lady, who has clearly goalled herself into total world domination:
Ok, so, I just blog-shamed myself into action.
I WILL set myself some goals. In fact, my goal is to set myself some goals before the end of this week.
Up until now, I have preferred not to set myself goals, but I have definitely recognised and celebrated when I have hit milestones.
(I can see clearly how short-sighted this is. Milestones are great, but you have to set yourself goals to work towards them. AND set a time deadline to achieve them. Ok, I have SERIOUSLY talked myself into setting goals!)
Anyway, back to Milestones. Because, last week, I hit three:
Last week I was finally able to make our first donation from Foxy Loves Pet Store to the ASPCA.
The reasons I started out in business and began this journey was to improve my own life. Coming a close second was my desire to improve the lives of others.
On the Foxy Loves Amazon page, we share some love by donating to the ASPCA every time a customer leaves a review on our Amazon product pages, such as our denim dog harnesses.
Last week we made our first donation of $100! I hope it’s the first of many, and I hope the amounts will increase as Foxy Loves grows. And I guess, although I never wrote it into a list, making the decision to donate was a goal.
It sure feels good to have achieved it!
Our SECOND product finally reached our Amazon store!!
I can’t tell you how excited I am! Honestly, it has been so hard to move forward, I have felt like I’ve been stuck for months. But we’ve finally got there.
The cute, paw-print fleece pet blanket is just perfect for winter. We have loved the samples we’ve been testing. They have so many uses and are a really useful addition to any pet lover’s wardrobe, so hopefully we will sell a few as gifts also.
Our next product is also on its way from China, these are truly exciting times!
MILESTONE THREE … EEEEEEeeeeekkkk!!!
I have started vlogging! Like, proper vlogging! Like, making a commitment to a vlog!
Project Life Success now has a YouTube channel. And the plan is that this blog and my YouTube vlog will go alongside each other.
Going public has been really scary and it was a big decision but at the same time something just feels right about it. If I am to share my journey in making a success of my life, changing my career and becoming my own boss, then I might as well do it properly.
So, I’m out there. Albeit in a very small way. Which is fine, because I have to say I’m not very good – yet!
But hopefully things will get better, and I might even get some YouTube followers.
I suppose I should set goals for that, too. But right now I just feel like I’m hurtling forwards on this great unknown train and literally anything could happen – and it’s hard to set goals when you’re clinging on for dear life!
