They're SCARY. Intimidating. They stare you down. Yup, I'm talking about BIG GOALS. So you push it to tomorrow, to someday, and slowly those big goals become just a far-fetched dream.
Writing a book, starting a company, going on a big solo trip, running a marathon. Thinking of the finish line feels overwhelming, I know. But we often forget that it's all about the journey, and not the goal.
There is so much you can get out of trying to reach your scary goals. In some ways, achieving it is just a by-product of your journey. Eric from @borntoruncoach, this incredible human I was lucky enough to spend the last few days with, calls those big goals 'cool impossible'. He inspired me to rethink my goals and make them cool impossible and then have fun on the journey trying to see how close I can get to achieving it. Telling myself they're impossible but I'll try anyway takes the pressure away. Afterall, if your goals are not scary, they aren't big enough. So tell me, what's YOUR cool impossible goal?
Thank you @renhotels for taking me on a journey to explore the coachella valley & Joshua Tree National Park. We were always so happy to go back to @renaissanceesmeralda each evening after long days finding hidden gems in the region!
