Over the course of your lifetime you may have hundreds of different goals.
Lose weight. Get fit. Save more. Stress Less.
Think about it. How many goals have you made for yourself in the past year?
All of your goals will fall into one of four basic categories. Everything you do is an attempt to enhance the quality of your life in one or more of these areas. Thanks to Brian Tracy for the inspiration for this post.
The Key to Happiness
The first category is your desire for happy relationships. You want to love and be loved by others. Maybe that is what is driving you to want to lose weight. You are doing it for your partner, or for your family. You want to have a happy, harmonious home life. You want to show your children that you can get back to the body shape you had when they were born.
You want to get along well with the people around you, your work colleagues, your neighbours, yes, your extended family – and you want to earn the respect of the people you respect. Your involvement in social and community affairs results from your desire to have happy interactions with others and to make a contribution to the society you live in.
Enjoy Your Work
The second category is your desire for interesting and challenging work. You want to make a good living, of course, but more than that, you want to really enjoy your occupation or profession. None of us wants to work at a dreary job that we despise, or which makes us miserable. The very best times of your life are when you are completely absorbed in your work.
Become Financially Independent
The third category is your desire for financial independence. You want to be free from worries about money. You want to have enough money in the bank so that you can make decisions without counting your pennies. You want to achieve a certain financial state so that you can retire in comfort and never have to be concerned about whether or not you have enough money to support your lifestyle. Financial independence frees you from poverty and a need to depend upon others for your livelihood. If you save and invest regularly throughout your working life, you will eventually reach the point where you will never have to work again.

Enjoy Excellent Health
This brings us full circle. The fourth and final category is your desire for good health, to be free of pain and illness and to have a continuous flow of energy and feelings of well-being. In fact, your health is so central to your life that you take it for granted until something happens to disrupt it.
That is why you work so hard at losing weight, or getting fitter, or stressing less. All of these goals contribute to your happiness and to your overall health and wellness.
Good luck in your quest for overall wellness, happiness and financial security.
