I was thinking about what I could do with my life, the things I achieved, and what I want to do from now on.
I’m really satisfied and happy with what I managed to achieve, but I want more. With every experience, I’m becoming a better man and it makes me think that becoming a better man it’s something worth working for.
Therefore, I’ve started developing a list of life goals.
Some “impossible” goals that will keep my mind focused on what I want to do.
Also, I’ll review the list regularly and update it by removing or adding new goals.
So, here’s my list.

Why should you create a list like this?
Life isn’t always how we want it to be.
It’s not related to optimism or pessimism. It’s not related to happiness or sadness. It’s not related to positive or negative.
Sometimes, our expectations are just different than how life is going to manifest. In those moments we slip and lose balance.
A list like the above one is really helpful because it keeps your mind focused on things that you consider important in your life.
Make your own list of life goals and try as hard as you can to achieve them.
With love and optimism,
