I think our goals change depending on where you are at in your life.
At one time I too dreamed of the big mansion, big paychecks, etc. but
of course that was long before marriage or children. Now my biggest
goal is for my children to stay healthy, survive growing up, and
become productive citizens. I am hoping that some of the things I am
learning from the Budget101 site will leak into their brain and just
become a part of life for them so that maybe they wont have to worry
as much financially. Of course I am sure that in another five years
my biggest dreams will change. I do strongly believe that if you keep
your dream to the forefront you will one day achieve it-but again
goals change and sometimes you never would have thought you would
have wanted that “whatever” as a goal in the first place.
