Accomplishing Goals in Life

When planning out goals in life, there are many self-help books, blogs, and methods to do this.  One way is to start writing the goal that you want to accomplish in life.  Read those goals daily and believe in them.  You can achieve them if you plan on them.  Start by identifying the goals into categories, for example, which ones are short-term that can happen in the immediate future in under six months.  A long-term goal is something that will take longer than a year to accomplish.  Under each goal, write down the length of time that you anticipate it will take to achieve that goal.  Once the goal and the time frame are established, write the steps that are required to get to that goal.  When the goal is identified, steps are put in place on how to achieve it, and the timeframe for the goal to be accomplished.  It allows your overall perspective on life to be encouraging.  As the goals are being worked on, they can be marked off to allow recognition that you have accomplished a step in your process to attain the final step, completion of a goal.

In the business world we, use an acronym called SMART goals.  It stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic/Relevant and Timely.  The reason that we want to think of this acronym when we are planning our goals is that we want to be certain that we are not just idly making a statement and not doing anything to achieve it.  An example of a goal not using the SMART form, is “I want to be a nurse one day.” This is a great goal, but if it is a realistic goal that you want to accomplish, then it needs feet to walk along the road.

Here is a better way to phrase this, ” I want to be a nurse one day.  In order for me to accomplish this goal, I need to:

Specific: I need to enroll in a school of nursing, in order to become a nurse

Measurable: According to the curriculum, it will take me 2 years to become a nurse and 4 years if I do my bacehlors in nursing.

Attainable: If I start in the Fall of 2018, I will be done in the fall of 2020 and I can start to work right away. I can continue my education for the bachelor’s classes while I work and gain experience as a nurse.

Realistic: The goal of going to school for the first two years and obtaining my nursing degree is more a realistic goal because I need to work and I can do that in two years.

Timely: I am going to sign up today to start classes in the fall of 2018, the curriculum for associates in nursing is two years, so if I follow the pattern, I will graduate in the fall of 2020.

This is just one scenario of a SMART goal, it can be anything that you set your mind to do.

Serendipity December 27th

December 27, 2005, a man named Marcus Moore asked me to be his wife by heart-shaped fireworks as we watched them from my house. Today is our 12 year engagement anniversary. Many don’t know the whole story, but if you read my book A Story of Faith, you will be able to read in detail how we ended up together. Today is about saying thank you to a man that allowed me in 12 years to become who I am today. In 12 years I completed my bachelors, masters and I am also almost finished with my doctorate of nurse practice.   We started a successful wedding business 27 Miracles, a non-profit organization called The Gift of Life, expanded my love of dance to a point where I could go to a competition in a group and win 1st place with my group, performed in ballets, Christmas shows, and musicals.   We have traveled to places I have never been before, learned to laugh, and care about others, write books, and become a legal nurse.  We had a beautiful baby boy that although born prematurely was the inspiration to start a non-profit to help other premature babies and their families. 

I was able to achieve a Master Bridal Consultant designation.  My latest accomplishment was the designation of Mrs. Windermere International, through this title I am able to reach audiences I would never have dreamed of reaching for my platform The Gift of Life. 


To think he manages all this in my life.  I am sure there is so much more …but first of all, I thank God for placing Marcus in my path many years ago and then I thank Marcus for being there for me through the ups and downs of life. Happy 12 year engagement anniversary! A serendipity moment that neither of us will ever forget.

If today you are looking for that serendipity moment in your life, do not worry it will come.  I waited almost 8 years for it.

Read A Story of Faith

and my newest romance novel based on fiction but oh so inspiring to many, When Being in Love Hurts.  

Give yourself time, the right person will come in your life one day when you least expect it.  Miracles do happen!
