Last week something pretty cool happened. I reached the wow goal I set for 2014.
what a wow goal is to me
A WOW goal is a goal so big that you don’t want to tell it to the whole world; not because you fear you might fall flat on your face when you attempt it, but because the enormity of it makes the goal very personal and close to your heart.
A WOW goal is so big you can only accomplish it if God really did lay it on your heart and therefore He comes in and holds your hand every step of the way, picking you up when you fall, sending you words of encouragement when those voices of doubt say you can’t and patting you on the back when you make it one step closer.
I still remember how I felt when I set it, I thought it wasn’t possible. I really thought I wouldn’t be able to reach it. I didn’t even like saying it out loud to people, or typing it down because I truly thought it wouldn’t happen no matter how badly I wanted it to.
My wow goal would be insignificant to many, but it was significant to me. I wanted to replace my husband’s income from a second job he had to stop doing when he started working in a different department of the hospital, due to the hours of the two positions conflicting with one another.
The loss of that job made our month to month budget pretty tight. I wanted to make our budget go from tight to breathable again. I set my goal at replacing that second job’s take home income.
I knew to do that I needed to make my goal a two part goal, first enlarging my audience and then increasing my sources of income.
With the help of my running partner picking me up when I got down, a few key bloggers sharing my work and giving me great wisdom and advice, my husband pitching in more around the house, my children learning to cooking more, and God reminding me over and over I was capable,
I did it, WE DID IT.
Today I want to celebrate with you, because truthfully without my readers, I would have never reached my goals. Thanks for coming again and again to visit my site.
I can’t think of a better way to celebrate with you than a giveaway of 3 copies of the book that inspired me to set my wow goal.
My friend Crystal Paine of Money Saving Mom has generously agreed to send 3 winners a copy of her best selling book Say Goodbye To Survival Mode: 9 Strategies To Stress Less, Sleep More and Restore Your Passion For Life.
It was Chapter 3, the chapter on goal setting, that when I read it I knew God wanted me to set a wow goal and stick to it.
Which brings me to you, I want you to set a wow goal for 2015.
As I write this there are just over 5 weeks left in the year. Take some time in those 5 weeks to grab a copy of Crystal’s book and read it . Start thinking of how you can implement the strategies listed in the book. When you do you will find you have time for a wow goal.
Take some time to think of what you want that wow goal to be. Make sure it isn’t easy to reach yet not impossible (even though it seems right now that it is).
When 2015 begins lace up those running shoes and start working your way towards the finish line of your wow goal.
As I stated above my friend Crystal Paine has generously provided 3 copies of her book “Say Goodbye To Survival Mode” to me to giveaway to you.
The giveaway will run until Sunday November 30 at Midnight. The winners will be contacted by email and the book will be sent to them in the mail.
