This new birth year, I want to be more intentional about my personal goals. Over the past few years, I have learned to be focused and dedicated to my dreams but to achieve my ever-increasing goals, I need to be more proactive. So I have given myself a target to attain some goals before my next birthday and I am sharing the five goals at the top of the list with you today.
1.) Learn How To Swim
Yup, I’m not a swimmer and it sucks. I can float thank goodness but I’m not confident enough in water. When my siblings learned how to swim, I was younger and in the kids’ pool. Fast forward to my teenage years, I went to a boarding school that granted us access to the pool once a year. I definitely couldn’t brush up on my skills and confidence in the little time I had in the pool. Before next October, I need to register for swimming classes and start swimming so help me God.
2.) Register in a Gym
Yup, I have never been a gym rat. I am self-taught in the health and fitness field. To be honest, I have never thought belonging to a gym was necessary until I considered the additional benefits attached to it which include a sauna, steam room, new relationships, business opportunities, and a routine.
3.) Sign Up to Be A Mentor
I don’t know if there are places one can sign up to be a mentor in Nigeria but I will very much like to be somebody’s mentor. I will like to guide someone through life’s turbulences, opportunities and expectations and give them a smoother journey along the way. I believe I have vast knowledge and experiences in different fields to do just that. So I am ready to volunteer myself to be someone’s guide and guard through this thing called life.
4.) Visit A Country On My To-Visit List
It’s no news that I love to travel and I have made it a point to visit a country I have never been to every year. I will really like to visit Turkey even though it is not on my top 5 places to visit list. My brother and sister-in-law visited recently and I have been interested in the country ever since. Will you go to Turkey with me in 2020? Please say yes, let’s plan a trip.
5.) Spend some time Volunteering
I know I need to do more volunteering because helping is always a good idea. It will be nice to join a volunteer community or even start one. I will like to belong to a group that raises money for a charity, feeds people, coaches people on how to get jobs, and basically help people that need help.
I have a long list but these five things are dear to me and it will be nice if I have accomplished them all before Oct 7, 2020.
Lists are fun, create one today.
