If you set a goal that resonates, it will move through you, carrying with it a noticeable energy that strengthens your intention. 
On the other hand, if your goal keeps finding its way onto the to-do list, then you’ve likely chosen it because of responsibility. 
Most of us don’t feel like we deserve to spend our days doing what we want for a living. If we do what we want, it’s not work, and if we aren’t working life could derail and get out of control. 
Check your reasons. Out of control is less scary than you think.
