Give Yourself a Gift
Imagine thereís a
beautifully wrapped gift on your kitchen
counter waiting to be opened. By you. The
gift is intriguing and it begs for your attention.
But first Ö before you tear it open like a 4-
year old with no self-control, here are a few
things to know about the gift:
Howís that for sweetness? A perfect gift that is free that you
give to yourself. Does it get any better than that? Plus, you

Itís unique because you give this
gift to yourself. No one can give this to you. Oh, they might
like to, but they canít. You are the only person who can give
this gift, and you can give it only to yourself.
Itís free. Even if you want to purchase it, you canít. Itís
not for sale. You canít buy it anywhere. Not from a neighborhood
department store, a tiny boutique or a catalog.
It may be the perfect gift. Itís a WOW gift! Special.
One youíll always remember.
So Ö what is the gift? I donít know. Itís different for each
of us because this package represents: the gift of a goal. And
thatís why only you can answer the question. Only you know
what your goal is. Only you know your innermost desires, what

is a unique gift because we give it to ourselves and, in turn, it
gives back to us. A good goal gives us energy.
Itís not always easy to discover and develop your goal. But
youíll know when you have it. Youíll see it, know it and feel it in
your heart. Mostly, you feel it in your heart.
Itís a little bit like falling in love. Think about the time(s) you
were in love. Remember that glorious feeling of being alive?
When your senses were highly refined? The colors Ö brilliant.
Sounds Ö radiant. Feelings Ö intense.
Like falling love, a good goal will dazzle, amaze, tantalize
and tease. A good goal will make your heart pound! Itís like
magic Ö the transformation, that greater meaning we have
when we are motivated and charging after our goals in an unstoppable
All that can be yours if you give yourself this powerful gift.
Itís an awesome, magical, life-enhancing gift.
Now is the time to claim the radiant vitality, the joyous passion
and the magnificent obsession that is yours, and yours
alone. Now is the time to give yourself the gift of a goal. Your
goal. Your gift. Your gift to yourself.
