So what’s on your bucket list? Whether written down or kept in our head, we all have a list of things we’d like to accomplish before our time on Earth is up.
Here’s a follow up question: How many items on your bucket list have you checked off in the last 12 months? Not as many as you’d like? Me neither.
For me, the biggest barrier to checking off bucket list items is my own lack of commitment to consistently take actions that will bring about the items on my list. Put another way, my biggest barrier is… me.
Here’s the good news, though: If I’m the biggest barrier, I am also the strongest force that can propel me forward toward checking things off my list. What a great thought that is! I’m not required to wait around for others to light a fire or make things happen for me. I can do that all on my own, by simply choosing to take action.
The same is true for all of us. If there’s something you want to do or experience in this life, all you have to do is start making plans and taking action to bring it about. Consistent effort over time toward a goal is a powerful force; a very powerful, bucket-list-checking-off force.
So, 2 final questions:
- What items on your bucket list still remain unchecked?
- Will you act as a barrier or a propelling force toward bringing them about?
