"In my next post we will be talking about how to keep a text to 200 words"
All my life I've always set realistic and achievable goals. I've completed many of them and I can see a pattern of how a goal looks before and after being accomplished.
It goes from being the best thing you can think of, almost like it will change your life for good, but that's not the case once you actually get there.
No matter how many times I reach a goal, I am still amazed by how my mind shifts focus and makes other goals seem more attractive than the one I am about to finish, or already finished.
I've come to realize that it's just the way my mind works, and it's actually very amazing. It's like a path that only shows me the next step once the prior is completed.
An example from my life would be how I hate the thought of having to work a physical job more than half the days, just to come back home tired and exhausted, ready for bed. Being a successful freelancer became my first goal, which I accomplished faster than expected, only after 3 months I made enough to pay the rent. But then it got boring. I didn't want to work for other people anymore.
Not even 3 months after seeing Freelancing as this key to eternal happiness, it suddenly became normal. I craved something bigger, so my next goal was to expand and acquire clients on my own and instead work with people. Which I did...
And you probably already know what happens next, it became boring. That's where I am at right now, my next goal is to supply myself with enough income from my own projects solely.
I can't explain with words how excited I am to see what my mind will trick me into once I've accomplished this goal.
There's only one thing to learn from all of this, and you've probably heard it a thousand times... Don't live your life following someone else's goals. Follow your own thoughts of where that greener grass is, whether it being a place or state of mind. It will change, but keep chasing it!
