I am a big believer in setting goals and achieving them, having a vision and making it a reality, and not giving up when it can get tough and just continuing to take action. A year ago I embarked on an eight year goal in the making which was to live and work in Hawaii. I did whatever I could to make this goal a reality, and I could have settled for less and kept my goal and dream as one of “I wish” to have achieved instead of being “I did” achieve.
Since moving to Hawaii, I didn’t understand what that next ultimate goal or vision to work towards was until recently. It was almost a year of reflecting on the achievements, strides, and failures that had brought me to this exact moment of wondering, what I am going to do next. I am not one to just stop and not continue to move forward. However, I felt stuck in the “what will I do next”.
During the course of my first year on Kauai, I have done things that I would never have thought was possible. I had the ability to Stage Manage at local events, sing in a beautifully talented worship team on both the North and South of Kauai, and now I am teaching Spin class. Using my God given talents, embracing the community with encouragement, praise, and good deeds, brightens my day during the tough times.
I love being able to make a positive impact on the community, and that really does light me up. What is next? Well, it will bring me back to the continually evolving drawing board to make the next goal a complete, well rounded, detailed, one with a vision to make the wildest dreams a reality. Like the well spoken Walt Disney once said, “If you can dream it, you can do it”. So what do you want to dream and do?
Start today. Not tomorrow. Make a Goal. Build a Vision. Take Action.
Aloha from Kauai on this Family Day in Ontario and President’s Day in the USA.
