I Didn't Hit my Goal - and I'm OK with it!

Last January when I launched the new website and had just started this IG page, I was pleasantly surprised by how many free charts were downloaded, and by March thought I'd set a goal for the year.

My initial thought was "I wonder how long it would take to give away a Million charts?" and the very next thought was "I wonder how many I can give away this year?"

The first goal that came to mind 75,000. That seemed doable.

Then I realized that wouldn't be much of a challenge, as the pattern seemed to say that would happen without much effort. So I upped it to 100,000. I even put 100,000 on the About page of the website.

Soon after that, I realized that was still too small, it wasn't opening up my brain to the possibilities. So up the goal went to 150,000 charts, double my original thought.

I knew this would be a nearly impossible goal unless I really upped my game. It got me out of my comfort zone to do my first podcast interview with @asunnysideuplife , and my first blog interviews, including @thepennyhoarder. I would have stayed in my little safe cocoon if not for that big, crazy goal

I didn't reach it.

In the past I would have made that mean that I failed. But I've learned this year (from @jameswedmore and @lifecoachschool ) that big goals like this aren't actually about reaching the goal, they are about stretching me, opening my thinking, and getting me to play bigger.

You guys, I am still blown away by this whole thing.

⠀⠀

WOW! 107,417 FREE charts given away in 2018!!!

So what is your goal for 2019? Would you double it as a challenge to yourself? I dare you to try. Go big, get out of your comfort zone, and open up your mind. What if you COULD do it? What would it take? Who would you need to be? Then go out there and be that person. You will do more than you ever thought you could.

Here is to big, crazy goals for 2019!

Ready to join me?

Oh, and even though I didn't hit the 2018 goal, I'm making it bigger for 2019! Stay tuned.

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
