Fast track your dreams in 2015

astronaut girlMy daughter’s 10th grade English class was given the assignment to write a letter to someone that inspires them.

This past week I received 3 letters. One from my daughter and 2 from her classmates – all of them focused on Girls Can’t WHAT playing a huge part in helping them realize that dreams are limitless and they can do anything they choose.

While I am humbled by the compliments, I am also reminded that you never know whose life you are impacting. Even when you think no one is reading your blog or paying attention to anything you post, there are people out there that need to hear what you have to say.

These 3 letters have inspired me to take this site in a slightly new direction. Yes, I will continue adding new designs to the shop so you can create personalized gear. I will also continue to publish the inspirational stories from ladies all over the world.

This year, though, I will be adding a new element to the site. One theme that resonated from those letters is that each girl was inspired to set goals for themselves. Goal setting is a valuable life skill, but it’s not typically taught in school. And even when it is taught, it’s briefly glossed over in a single lesson.

I’ve spent years learning to set goals. It’s challenging. It’s fun. It’s rewarding. Most of my attempts have been trial and error. It’s very much a learning experience and I’ve accomplished some pretty awesome things just by setting a goal and working towards it.

There are, however, some tips and tricks that will make the process easier to manage and help you achieve your goals faster. That’s the stuff they don’t teach you in school.

So stay tuned… I’m about to unleash some secrets to put you on the fast track to achieving your dreams. I’m committing to 2 posts per month on this topic so you will have time to digest and implement each one. Can’t wait to read them? Get on the VIP list and you’ll be the first to know each time a new tip is posted. You’ll also get my free eBook “How To Set Amazing Goals and Achieve Them”.

Are you struggling with achieving a goal? Post your questions or comments below and let’s work it out!


  • Hi Gretchen,

    The topic of goals, especially in school, really hits home. I remember something about setting goals in high school and as you say, it was glossed over. I didn’t know the difference between a goal and a dream. It would have been extremely helpful if someone said pick a goal you can do in a month and figure out the steps to accomplish it. It took me years to understand the difference and be able to implement true goals and goal setting.

    I even recently told that to the superintendent of our local school district and he found it to be eye-opening. Maybe they’ll finally work on true goal setting in school.

    Looking forward to your goal setting articles. Thank you-Anita

      Thanks Anita – that’s a good point about making a distinction between a goal and a dream. I will make sure to cover that topic in-depth.
