100 Life Goals List

One evening, just after I had turned 30, I was sitting around with friends contemplating the future and what I wanted to accomplish before I left this earth. That contemplation inspired me to write down all the things I wanted to do, which eventually turned into a long list of 100 life goals.

Before you scroll down to my list, a few important things:

Don't just read my list. Write down your own life goals list. Doing so will provide you with clarity and direction.

Furthermore, I suggest creating an action plan while motivation is high. For that reason I created two FREE guides containing a big list of potential goals to have, plus my goal-setting process for attaining big goals. (The exact process that allowed me to check off all my goals on my list).

With this in mind, here's my 100 life goals list:

Writing Your Own 100 Life Goals List

What do you want to accomplish in your lifetime? What are the things you want to experience? Do you want to achieve 100 goals, 200 goals, or even 300 goals in your lifetime?

Writing Your life goals list should be your own personal journey, a list where you can connect with your potential and the the person you want to become. You can start with small goals and work your way up to the big ones.

Having a life goals list is important but without the structure of what you need to do, your chances of turning the dream into reality are significantly lower.

This is where my FREE book, Design Your Dream Year, comes in. It’ll help you have to set and achieve your own life goals list. And, if you feel like you could use some extra support, check out the Elevaye Year Program. If you qualify, I could be with you every step of the way.
