Aloha! I’m Ana, I’m a Christian, missionary, wife, introvert, and I’ve been a planner and goal achiever for…well, almost all my life.
In brief I can tell you some of the goals I’ve achieved during my life: I have a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, I’ve worked and lived in Cancun, México for a year, in France for 4 years, I’ve traveled extensively throughout Europe, I’ve done mission trips, I speak 3 languages, and, listen to this: I’m a Mexican married to an American, living in Hawaii and working from home, well, sometimes from the beach. Just a note: I’m not bragging, I just want you to know it’s possible to achieve your dreams.
The reasons I created this site is to help people like you, achieve your goals and live the life you have always dreamed of. People have told me that I’ve been very lucky in my life because I’ve accomplished my goals and I’m living my dream, but guess what? it’s not about luck, it’s basically because I’ve designed and created my life step by step. Some might say that this thinking doesn’t align with God’s will for our lives, but as I’ve experienced it, God has our best interest in mind and nothing pleases Him more than to see His children fulfil their destiny and have abundant lives in every sense, not just financially. I believe that the more we are happy and fulfilled, the more we can give to the world, and therefore, make it a better place.
Also, I’ve been asked several times how I have done all of these, people assume that I must have been wealthy, but I wasn’t, you don’t need tons of money to make your dreams come true, and as I’ve achieved some of my goals (I still have some more left), I believe it’s totally possible for anyone to do the same and I’m going to show you what has worked so far for me, hoping it would help you too.
To do this I’m going to share my personal experiences with you and what I’ve learned throughout my life and what I’ve discovered through my own trial and error process (or experiments).
I also ask that if I ever say anything that captures your interest, that you get involved within my site. I love to talk about dreams, goals of any kind and if you have anything interesting that you want to share or any opinions of any of the content I have created on my site, please do speak up. I love feedback in every form.
So now to me…
I consider myself an adventurous introvert, if there’s ever a definition of these two seemingly excluding words, that would be me! lol
Being an introvert, it’s hard to believe the things I’ve done in my life and where God has taken me, but by God’s grace it has worked out and I’m very thankful for it.
I am currently 45 years old. not afraid to say it because I have no regrets, I married my wonderful husband almost 5 years ago and as I said before, we live in Hawaii. We’re both Christians and missionaries. I have a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and 20+ years experience in the corporate world as well as experience having my own business.
To me being successful is relative, for some people it could be stepping up the corporate ladder, have a top job, successful career, the most luxurious car in the market, etc. To be honest with you, at some point this was my dream too, specially when I was in college, after all, isn’t that what they teach us to be and to have? that’s their definition of success, and that’s fine, it could be for some people, but as I grew older, I redefined myself and realized more and more what I really wanted in life and that’s when I started living my life intentionally, and with God on my side of course.
The most important thing about achieving your goals, is how you feel. Your goals have to be yours, not what your family expects from you, not what college expects from you, or boss, or friends or spouse, or whoever has an influence on you for that matter.
In order to be successful, you need to define what success is for you and create goals according to that definition, if you do this, I can assure you that when you have clarity on what you want, the rest flows, it might take some time, but it flows.
If you ever need any feedback or support regarding your goals and action plans, I would be more than happy to connect. Simply leave your comment below and make sure you visit my site regularly as I am always updating it with the crazy “ideas” and “information” that I come across that I know you will find interesting.
Anyways, I wish you all the best with your journey to make your dreams come true and thank you for dropping by!
Your friend, the adventurous introvert,
Founder of Achieve Your Life Dreams
