Lots of people talk about having a “bucket list” these days. You know, that list of things they’ve always wanted to do but haven’t done yet? Made famous by the 2007 hit movie “The Bucket List,” it usually includes personal goals and cherished dreams, often put off till “the right time” comes along. You may even have one of these lists yourself. Guess what? So do I! Here are just a few of the things on it:
- Tour the Grand Canyon
- Take a cruise to Hawaii
- Go scuba diving in the Caribbean
- Visit mysterious ruins around the world
- View the Milky Way without light pollution
- Take a ride into space with Virgin Galactic
Most of these things I may never get to do (I can’t even swim, let alone scuba dive, and I get vertigo on a ladder, so space and the Grand Canyon are probably unwise), but hey, you can’t stop a gal from dreaming! And you have to admit, having a “bucket list” is a great motivator for living life to the fullest.
If you have a such a list, comment below and tell me…WHAT’S ON IT? I bet I can guess one thing…
Win a BIG CHECK for a GIANT SuperPrize from Publishers Clearing House!
Wouldn’t it be a dream-come-true if you could put a “big check” next to that goal? You could even check off all your goals if you win!
An impossible dream? Not so! Just ask the many folks in our Winners Circle — those who received a “Big Check” from the Prize Patrol!
You can wish, and you can hope…but, as with most things, that alone won’t make your dreams come true: You have to be motivated to make an effort! As Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu once said, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” Like the many happy people in our Winners Circle, you have to take action and stick to it!
Using my own list as an example, I could tour the Grand Canyon and go scuba diving in the Caribbean… if I stick to a fitness program, learn to swim, and make a plan to achieve my goals. But as my spouse always says, “if” is the biggest word in the dictionary. My dreams could be within reach if I use the three keys to achievement — #1: Motivation, #2: A Plan of Action, and #3: Perseverance!
So ask yourself: “How motivated am I to win a giant SuperPrize and meet the Prize Patrol? Have I planned how I will take advantage of all the wonderful ways to win? Do I have the will to keep at it?”
I hope someday you (and I) will put a “big check” next to most of the dreams on your “bucket list.” In the meantime…
Here’s hoping you too will receive a “Big Check” from the Prize Patrol! And remember to keep at it by entering today and every day!
