Skyline Coaching Announces the 180 Day Goal Success Challenge - Reach for the Sky!

Last week I interviewed author Shirley Cheng. She is a remarkable young woman who at the age of 25 has already authored eight books and co-authored another ten including "Finding Your Life's Passion" and "101 Great Ways to Improve Your Life, Volume 2". Yet, Shirley is both blind and disabled.

Before she could even celebrate her first birthday, at just 11 months, she was struck with rheumatoid arthritis so severe that it led to years of hospitalisation in America and China. She also missed out on many years of schooling.

Missing out on those early years of education meant that she didn't learn how to read until she was 10 years old. By that time she was ravenous for knowledge. Shirley finally attended school at age 11 and was initially placed in a Special Education class. However, approximately 180 days later her Special Education teacher said to her mother,

"She's ready to go to a regular sixth grade class, and she'll do very well in it."

Yes, in just 180 days Shirley had stormed her way through five years of learning and was able to take her place in a regular class just as she had dreamed longingly about while lying in her hospital bed.

You would think that fate would have decided that Shirley had been given enough to deal with in life. The crippling rheumatoid arthritis had rendered her wheel-chair bound but there was more hardship to come.

During Shirley's sophomore year this courageous young girl lost her eyesight. However, her spirit remained strong. She continued to focus on what she could do. She continued to celebrate her life. She continued being a goal achiever.

"Cheng could easily have become sad and bad, but good and happy is her path. These life ways were her ticket to the high road."

So here's your challenge. Think of a goal - make it a challenging goal, something that is really going to stretch you but something you believe you can accomplish in six months time or in 180 days.

In 180 days you can truly transform your life. What will your life be like 180 days from today? Where will you be living? What will you be doing? Who will you be spending time with? How will you be spending your time? How much more money will you have earned? Imagine, that at the end of the 180 day period you are being interviewed by top talk show host such as Oprah or Larry King? Who would you like to be interviewed by? What will you be talking to them about?

I'd love to hear about your challenges so please leave me a comment and I will be here to give you support as you go through your challenge. So, if you have any questions please be sure to ask.
