Do you have certain goals that you are aiming to accomplish? Or are you the type of person to live each day without a certain goal in mind?

Well, setting goals keeps you moving in life. When you have goals, you are creating your path towards success. This is because you will be striving for more in life and you will be reaching closer to those specific goals each day.

Ever since I started setting goals and working towards them, I have seen a huge improvement in my life.

Not only with getting things done but also with my self confidence. Each time I get something done, my self-esteem feels like it has been raised just because I feel proud of myself.

So, how do I do this?

Take It 1 Day At A Time

Whether it is a big or a small goal, I am constantly striving to achieve it. No matter how hard it may seem.

Yes. It may sound crazy because your goal may be huge and seem so far from where you are at now, but you must start somewhere.

You must take that first jump and start moving towards it.

I mean, you can't forget...

"Good things take time."

So, my best advice is to take it 1 Day At A Time.

Once you do take that jump and get started, things will begin to get much clearer and even more exciting!

Having a large goal may seem overwhelming, complicated, and leave you feeling stressed.

But the good news is...it doesn't have to be this way!

If you begin to move towards your goals in little steps each day, you will see a large amount of progress completed overtime.

You can not look straight at the finish line. But instead, you must make small goals or critical tasks for yourself each day that will help you move towards your overall goal.

For example:

A big goal of mine was to graduate with my Associates Degree for free.

Looking at this as a whole, made me feel and seem crazy.

But my sophomore year of high school, I began to take college credits over the summer. I took class by class for the next two years until I was a senior. I studied extra hard, had to turn down some plans, and even got a tutor for one of the classes.

But after two years of hard work, patience, and dedication. I received my first college degree at the age of 17, before I even got my high school diploma. And I saved over 6,000 dollars because I was dual-enrolled.

My dad :)

This was totally worth it!

So how did I do it?

I worked each day on something small that would help me reach towards my bigger goal.

If your goal is to lose some weight, you must start somewhere.

This can be an example of your goals for one week that will help you reach your overall goal after some time.

Sunday - Run a mile

Monday - Bike 30 minutes

Tuesday - Rest Day... but don't eat any sweets and only drink water

Wednesday - Play a full game of beach volleyball

Thursday - Dance to your top 10 favorite songs with high-energy

Friday - Swim 15 laps

Saturday - Get a HIIT workout in

10 Home Items You Need For Stress Relief, On The Days You 'Literally Cannot'

Fill your home with peaceful, calming coping mechanisms.

I'd like to think that 2020 is teaching us a lot. Or will teach us a lot. Or will be a story we tell at parties one day. Ultimately, this year has been — and is probably going to continue to be — a bit of a mess.

At the beginning of the year, Australia was on fire and we mourned the death of Kobe Bryant. Then, coronavirus (COVID-19) took our spring and shut us in our homes, inciting panic over public health and sparking political upheaval at every decision made by local and federal officials alike. Now, a week after George Floyd's death at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, a nationwide conversation is reignited with protests regarding racial injustice in the United States. There is an enormous amount of tension, hurt, and change that is upon the American people.

7 Ways You Can Safely Attend A Protest In The Middle Of A Pandemic

Wear a mask, but speak up.

It seems like coronavirus (COVID-19) has been around forever now. Life before masks and with public sporting events is a distant memory, hoping to make a comeback sometime this year. We've all had to make some sort of life changes to abide by this pandemic's rules. But that doesn't mean everything has stopped. On May 25, George Floyd died at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, sparking a cry for justice and racial equality across the nation.

For the last week, protests have taken place in major cities like New York City, LA, DC, Chicago, Phoenix, Portland, Dallas, and Floyd's hometown of Minneapolis. Many of the cities experiencing protests have begun phased reopening, while others (specifically New York City and LA) have yet to begin phase one of post-coronavirus reopening.
