Because women think writing their goals out is getting their goals done

Because women think writing their goals out is getting their goals done

Ask any woman if she has or has had a journal, and I bet the overwhelming answer to that question will be yes. If she says no, she’s lying.

Women love journals. I have mentioned it on this blog before. They particularly like them with beautiful or interesting covers. Women like to touch them, own them and write in them but more than anything else, they like to buy them.

And what is it exactly that women do with these journals once they own them?

Wy they write down their hopes and dreams of course.

And most women’s hopes and dreams occur in the form of to do lists. That is, lists of all the things they have to do in order to become all the things they wish to be.
Women wish to be so many things. They want to be: nicer, smarter, thinner, have better skin, have better hair, have better nails, better clothes. better home, a better cook, a better mother, a better wife, a better daughter, better at work, better cleaner of clothes, cars and houses, better with their free time and better with their busy times.

Women want to get better at everything they do, and ultimately, the best way they can achieve this is to write it in a journal and then look at the wonderful dreams, come to life on the page.

And then that generally satisfies the yearning. Once they can see the dreams written out in black and white that satisfies the craving they had for their lives to be different.

At least for a while.

In romance novels, usually women write their hopes and dreams out in a journal and before they know it, the entire scenario has come true, but a wonderful man leaping out of the pages of a book to satisfy them, a fairy godmother providing them with the new man and the new life, or just a strange series of circumstances coinciding for them to have everything that they want. One thing you will never see in a romance novel is a long hard slog that takes most of their lives being the way dreams come true – because after all, this is about dreams, wishes and fantasies, not real life.

 And every romance reader knows it.

    2 things I find interesting about this…

    1) Did you know that, when you check off something on a “to-do” list, you get a burst of endorphins( the “feel-good” hormones)?

    Ever write something you’ve just done on a list so you can check it off? That’s why

    This boost of “feel-good” can help you go on and accomplish the next thing

    2)Studies find that writing your goals down statistically increases your chances of achieving them

    Whether it just keeps your goals in mind so you’remore likely to work on them or it “magicly” attracts things that help your dreams come true, the data says that it makes a difference

    So maybe there is a point to all those jourals :-)….

    This is so very true! Me on the other hand, I just like buying unique journals. Didn’t quite get around to filling them out yet. On the plus side, I do have a nice collection!

    @calimom09, I’m afraid that I suffer from journal fear- I buy these beautiful journals and hesitate to use them for fear of making a false start and wasting the entire beautiful journal.

    Instead I have a whole mess of little spiral bound assignment books, 1/ project, because it’s lower risk of waste

    I’m working on making good use of theose journals

        Well thank you Barbra. We work hard to provide useful information for folks that need it. I think the most popular post is the 30 second release for stress and negative energy posted in June 2009 🙂

        And, yes, I am very fortunate to be married to my best friend and beloved. Not only is he a wise and knowledgeable Wiccan, but also a man who cooks and does dishes.

        I am blessed.

        And he also reads romance novels….
