50 Fabulous Life Goals
When I was at school, my adult relatives used to ask me "what do you want to become when you grow up?" I knew they were pointing towards my career goal. So I would answer easily. But as I left school, grew up, joined college, started working, got married, had a child and bought a house, I couldn't just have one goal. My list of goals kept growing. I love this saying, “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” by C.S. Lewis. Now I have many goals in my life. As I was reading about goals of other people, I thought I should write down my own goals. After reading this article I hope you will be inspired to write and share some of your goals in life that you really like to achieve.
