By reflecting on the significance of your goals, I mean asking why you set them. What made you want to set the goals, what's kept you from achieving them in the past, what are you doing differently now or what can you do differently to reach them, and how will reaching these goals make a positive impact on your life.
Comparing your life to another's on resources alone is not positive, and it is quite unfair to yourself and the other people you're trying to compare against. Oprah and Beyonce don't set the same goals, because their individual lives are vastly different. It's fine to use their goals for inspiration to create your own, but your goals need to be personal to you.
Make sure your goals are manageable, and that you break them down into takes that will infact help you reach them. Identify and anticipate obstacles you will undoubtedly come up against, and then break down tasks to overcome them to reach your goal. You're lack or excess of resources shouldn't be an excuse to not reach your goals and spend your time feeling badly about yourself. Change your perspective, and identify way to obtain the resources you need to achieve your own personal goals.
If your goal is to be a singer like Beyonce, then figure out what you need to do it achieve that.
Reflect on your own individual strengths, talents, and set measuresble achievable goals. When you reach them, set more. By doing this, manifestation by using the secret (watch the documentary on Netflix), and willpower to stay positive and not give up; that is 100% how Oprah and Beyonce got where they wanted to be. So try that for yourself.
In summary, I suggest you watch the secret to help you learn an amazing way to draw positivity into your life instead of negativity (like attracts like), work on thinking positive thoughts, and start setting manageable goals and list the tasks you need to do in order to get there.
Goal setting can be big, with small milestone celebration goals. Start there, and take a look at what tasks you can do to start reaching those milestone goals.
You'll get there, just don't give up. I wish you the best of luck in your future!
Then repeat tomorrow.
Then repeat daily.
Review your question in 3 months.
We are all humans, doing the exact same thing, just working with the resources we are given.
If you compare yourself, you’ll never win.
As I like to say, hold on to your kite.
YOUR kite. Nobody else’s.
No one can just spring from zero to star status, it’s a long line of little commitments to one self of eating right, working out, self love and true engagement in knowledge to become better!
If you set your one goal of what you want to be. Then write all the things needed to achieve that goal. Give yourself a set date to reach it. Then take the days to get to that goal and split out your steps daily, by crossing each off you begin to work deeper then your current actions, your subconscious engages and you become a driven soul like Beyoncé and Oprah. They know what they want to be and always have. They take the small steps daily to look as one great person to all in a snapshot moment. But it still takes the everyday actions for them to stay great!

Note the learning
Celebrate the struggle and growth
- How could I effectively use my time without laziness
- I need this to be so simple. And struggle to now what to include and what to leave out. Too basic and they seem pointless. Too detailed and they seem to take up too much time I could be focusing on other things… any suggestions on how to prioritise and discriminate between tasks to include and task to accept as given.
- Do you write the small and mundane tasks like cook, go for a walk etc on your list?
- What do you include in your most basic routines- what is something that simply must be done no matter what?
- Do you write only a few tasks on your to do list, or do you write everything that you have to do and then pick the top three or so to get done today? I’m never sure which approach is most effective.
- Do you check and adjust your to do list throughout the day? How do you remember?
- Do you ever feel like you write to much stuff to do for one day?
- Do you write down your routines too or skip them since they are ‘routines’?
- Which order do you accomplish your tasks? Due date? Importance? Fun making it?
- what are some things you always put on your to do? do you find that having the same activity at the same space everyday makes you more likely or less likely to actually do it??
