Creating An Inspiring Bucket List

The exercises you’ve done until now have likely highlighted a few areas of your life that need attention. These areas can form part of the goals you add to your bucket list. This week I invite you to think about what you really want in different aspects of your life. Forget what you need. As Author Thomas Moore says: “Admit to what you desire and what you fear… It’s all right to have grand and eccentric longings. It’s all right to be afraid. Only by embracing these two emotional pillars will you glimpse the nature of your soul, which is the ground of your existence.” Suspend the notion that wanting is being greedy and don’t allow your censoring inner voice tell you it’s impossible. Think about your goals and dreams from a perspective of no limits and allow yourself to create an inspiring bucket list.  Ask yourself what you want that gives meaning to your life in each of these aspects and jot down a few notes as to why you want it.

  1. Life Partner
  2. Family, Friends and Community
  3. Health and Leisure
  4. Vocation
  5. Financials and Home
  6. Spirituality and Sense of Self

I’m sure you have a very good list to work with.  In the coming weeks we’ll work on identifying the priorities for your list of goals and begin to set achievable and sustainable goals to achieve the success you want.
