Every few months, I sit down with my Lova, Evan and come up with goals for OTR. I've been setting goals for myself as long as I can remember- a habit that was forced upon me by my mother.

I used to hate having to come up with goals. Now that I'm an adult I find myself loving this practice- especially when I accomplish them.

One of my goals for this quarter was to reach 800 sales.

Well, by day 4 into my Moving Sale I hit my goal! 800 sales have come and gone and I'm still smiling about it. Obviously I'm really happy about hitting 800 sales, but more than that, I just LOVE accomplishing a goal. It gives me great satisfaction and keeps me endlessly motivated.

For me, the trick with goals is making sure that you will have to put a significant effort into achieving them, while still making them attainable. You don't want to set yourself up for failure- you want to succeed! And when you do, nothing can match that feeling! It builds confidence and makes you feel in control.

Today I encourage you to set a goal for yourself. Personal, professional, financial- whatever you like. Push yourself to achieve something that you want to accomplish. Write it down. Post it on the fridge or your bathroom mirror. And more importantly, accomplish it. Trust me, you'll love the feeling.

Be well, be positive- set goals.
