Free Charts and Impossible Goals

Impossible Goals are the Key to Success - Debt Free ChartsSetting big goals has become my M.O. 

I learned in 2018 that setting small goals doesn't work because they aren't inspiring. Big, crazy goals make you think bigger, think in ways that small goals just don't inspire.

What if it WAS possible?
What would I do if I knew that I could actually do it?
What am I willing to try doing even though it probably won't work
What would it take to make it possible?⠀
Who would I need to be to make it happen?
If I had already achieved this, what would I say to someone else going after it too?

Those are excellent questions! Those are the kinds of questions that help us grow, and reach higher than we ever thought you could.

And when we don't reach a big, crazy goal? It doesn't mean that we are failures, it simply means that we are not yet the person for whom that goal would be easy. And that is ok. We are stretching, we are growing, and if we keep trying, we will become the person for whom reaching that goal will be a piece of cake.

A few months ago I asked for guesses on what my 2019 Giveaway Goal would be. I got answers from 150,000 to 300,000.

So those of you who guessed that my 2019 Giveaway Goal would be 300,000, you are right my friend.

Honestly I was going to do 250,000 for the goal, but when Ashely said "Knowing you - you doubled to 300,000!", I had a little a-ha of my own.

Yes! I should double it. So I did.

It's a crazy, impossible goal, or at least I thought it was, but after seeing January's numbers (over 23,000!), it doesn't seem impossible anymore! At least not as impossible as it was!

I don't know if the goal will stay at 300k, I may have to raise it in a few months if January isn't just a huge, abnormal rush. Last January was big in comparison to the following months, so maybe that's the "new year's resolution" reaction. I will wait and see what the next few months have in store, and reevaluate.

I want the goal to be one I won't hit. If that sounds weird, it is. Usually people set "realistic" goals, but not me, I set big, crazy goals that are out of reach on purpose, because small goals keep me playing small. Impossible goals open up my mind to the question "but if it WAS possible, how could I do it?"

So there you have it, the 2019 Giveaway Goal is 300,000 FREE charts, at least for the time being that is what it is.

I can't wait to see what God has in store for Debt Free Charts this year!


January 2019 - Wowzers!!! 23,050 FREE charts given away in January! That's just, well, mind blowing! I had to go back and count it again LOL. That's more than TRIPLE last January!

February 2019 - Even with the after January slip, this month still came in with 14,444 free charts given away, our third highest month EVER!

March 2019 - Another huge month with 21,073 charts given away! Thanks in part to the release of a brand new style of chart - Debt Free Land - makes paying off debt a game!

May 2019 - Another impressive month (well honestly, this entire thing still shocks me, will I ever get used to it?) with 19,456 charts given away, boosted by the release of the Game of Loans chart.

August 2019 - We've blown past the 2018 Goal (which we didn't reach last year) and WOW! I'm just speechless at the August numbers! 30k!

December 2019 - What an amazing year! I learned so much in trying to reach this goal, and the biggest lesson was that what I am doing isn't doing much. These numbers were all very organic. It didn't make much difference if I posted and emailed, or not. I can now say that this is not me. This thing has a life of it's own, and I am just honored and humbled that my little charts are part of whatever this is. 

So what's next? What is my goal for 2020? I'll be posting that soon...

Great resource to make finance visual and fun

I purchased and downloaded many of the money/debt tracking charts. I like that you can color them how you want or purchased color print versions. When I look at our finance board in our room it looks less daunting and more achievable just from these charts. Thank you for these wonderful resources to help us little people stay on track and keep our money strait!

I want to say thank you Heidi for these amazing charts. I love them and use it for everything. I have forms on my bathroom wall where i can see my progress. I currently have the Christmas chart and I'm saving for Christmas. I am almost halfway from my desired goal. Our currency in South Africa is in Rands and my current savings is R10 000. I have my daily challenges in order to save small amounts of money and it really adds up. Even saving R5 a day makes a huge difference . Coloring in those charts are fhe fun part because you can see the progress. Saving for a car as well. Have been driving my one for almost 14 years but I want to buy a car cash. Thank you for giving me the ability to do that. Then I have the 2 that I'm paying of debt. Progressing very well. I have shared these charts with my sister and friends and are super excited. Wish I could sent a photo of my charts. I'm super excited. Thank you Heidi. You have taken me to a place where I will be debt free one day. You have given me the tools to do that and I am ever grateful to you. May you be blessed in abundance for what you are doing for us..you are awesome
