Do you write down your goals? Having goals is great, but writing them down is just as important. Maybe more so. Here’s why.
Right now you’ve probably got some goals swirling around in your head. Maybe you’re holding them close to your heart. Maybe you’re afraid someone will tell you your dream is impossible. Whatever. As long as that goal is a secret you are sitting on untapped potential. So the way to make that goal manifest into reality is to state it, out loud AND on paper.
So break out that 3×5 card and start writing. For inspiration I like the lyrics to Unwritten. The song by Natasha Bedingfield.
I am unwritten, can’t read my mind, I’m undefined
I’m just beginning, the pen’s in my hand, ending unplanned
Staring at the blank page before you, open up the dirty window Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance, So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions…
Still not convinced you need to write in down? Well, think about playing DC Lottery’s Mega Millions. What if you picked the six winning numbers for this week… in your head, but you never bought the ticket? Oops!
No one else, can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins…
