Goal setting is an important part of what motivates me. So when people are declaring New Year's resolutions, I share in their happiness. I see how motivated people are about the upcoming year, the hope they have in themselves to achieve, and I know that is a wonderful feeling.
Setting goals comes naturally for me. I daydream a lot and set targets for achieving those dreams. For me, there is a feeling of euphoria when I think of what actions I can take to influence my future. The notion that I have some control over what path I take is empowering. Life with free will is truly amazing. I'm grateful for it and find that I am most happy when consciously exercising that gift.
