What? What’s the difference? I questioned as I listened to the sweet lady on the radio, as the DJ asked her, “What is on your bucket list?”
She began to tell of everything on her ‘list’. Go see beautiful sights, meet certain people, ect. Then the guy asked,”Were any of these on your goal list before you were diagnosed?”
Wait a minute…What? What is the difference? Is there a difference?
I anxiously waited for her response…she replied with…
UGH! A commercial break. Tell me! Were these two list the same? Was there any other list?
When they returned to the interview nothing was said about the goal question. No, not one darn thing. They skipped over it like it wasn’t even asked.
Yes, you already know it is time for a Mrs. Drake investigation!
I must know does everyone have a bucket and a goal list? Are they the same? And if not why are they different?
I began to ask these questions to family members. Their responses were all over the place. However, we all agreed on one thing the difference is a bucket list is something you think of when your possible exit date is known and a goal list is for the living.
Hmmmm I am not sure I agree with this concept.
Let me ask you this…doesn’t it make more sense to combine the two lists and begin living to ‘accomplish’ those experiences you so desire.
What if ‘get a job’ on your goal list was changed to…
Bucket list- I will find a company that appreciates my talents and what I like to do. We cocreate together to improve their business and to improve my revenue.
Goal list- Be Married by 25.
Bucket List- Fall in Love, laugh alot, enjoy them each day like it is Our last together.
Goal List- Take a trip to Italy..
Bucket List- My love and I travel to Italy and stay in quaint little Air B&Bs each night.
What are your thoughts on Goal List vs. Bucket List?
Let me know because these two words seem to be similar. However, the general perspective might be a little messed up.
I don’t know about you but I think I want to LIVE each day focusing on my bucket list, rather than making goals that I may never reach.
But if I think it could be my last day, month, or year…how much more will I accomplish versus the list of ‘goals’ that I think I SHOULD DO.
This thought is still in the works! Therefore, I will take any advice on the topic, if you would like to share!
Also I am looking for a title of my newest book…For Network Marketers and Companies to grow by leaps and bounds. My original title was…Why do I HATE/LOVE you…NETWORK MARKETERS?
I would love to know what type of title would intrigue you to purchase and read this book?
(Side note…be on the look out for this book because the first two weeks it will be at a big discount. And Karatbars Affiliates we have some surprises for you!)

I am so excited to share with you! Please, as you read allow yourself to feel the emotions. See the connection between why you do what you do and the universal goal of life. Allow the message to empower you to create the life you have always wanted. Without further delay…THE ONE & ONLY GOAL all living species share!
Have you ever pondered the ‘meaning’ of life? Have you ever felt like there was no meaning? Maybe you have battled with depression, anger, and frustration, on a regular basis. I have spent the past fifteen months asking this simple question…What is the meaning of life? Each client has assisted me in answering this question. They have allowed me to know their fears, emotions, and most intimate desires!
Finally, the answer has developed. The one universal goal to all living species is…
Yes, it is as simple as one word, “BETTER!”
For example: The young mother who is living in poverty, attempting to raise her children to be upstanding citizens has one goal…to be more abundant to create a BETTER life for herself and family. Life will be better!
The unknown musician plays music to feel better or to share with the world a better feeling. Life will be better!
Nurses passionately take care of those in need to feel physically better. Life will be better!
Religions make a promise if you will follow these guidelines, you will have a better life or here after. Life will be better!
People who perform catastrophic events think that performing this act will make them FEEL BETTER.
A wild animal who has been caught will most likely attack, why? To feel better or in this sense he or she is fighting back to ensure safety, which is better than being harmed.
Yes, even the negative events or emotions are a part of the Universal Goal. Because those feelings of resistance are indicators that there is something better.
A person who commits suicide, thinks they will feel better, because they don’t see any way for improvement here on earth.
A tree, what about a tree do they share this goal? Yes, think about the beautiful trees who stretch their roots as far as they can reach, to ensure they can always receive the proper nutrients. To Grow Better!
A military woman or man, does not ‘do’ what he/she does because they LOVE the many hurdles they must jump, but rather to be a part of something better. To protect their country and assist in creating a BETTER LIFE. (Thank you for your service).
What about yourself? Think back about your inner desires, visions, and goals. Why do you have them? Why do you continue to persevere? To feel better. To create a better life for your family. To create a better life for yourself.
What is your meaning to YOUR LIFE? Maybe you want to enjoy abundance of money, love, helping other, friends, adventure, spiritual connection. Maybe you want to share your beliefs to assist another in living a better life. We are all in this together and therefore I ask you to choose to: feel better, do better, improve to a better state. After all…the meaning of life is whatever you want it to be. However the one universal goal, we all share, boils down to one simple word…

Changing the world with one happy thought at a time
Educating the world to:
Written by: Teena Drake
As I snuggle in from a fabulous journey across the United States, I reflect back over the many faces I have seen. The beautiful array of colors, in people. The magnificent rainbow of languages for communication. My favorite is the plume of backgrounds intertwined with culture, beliefs and heritage.
As our differences are continuously illuminated, our similarities need to be highlighted and celebrated!
From the homeless to the wealthiest, continent to continent, it doesn’t matter we are all aiming for the same goal. I know this sounds a bit odd, but keep reading, I promise, this becomes more and more intriguing.
My mom said, “I remember telling my mother, while traveling for work, people are just people, everywhere you go.”
As I began to become more observant throughout my adventure in LA, I pondered about her statement to Baw Baw (my grandma), “Why do people do what they do? How are we all so different, but similar, all in one?”
While waiting at the airport, I had to know, Why people do what they do. Therefore, I began to ask, “Why are you traveling today? Why do you do your job? What are you in pursuit of?
I only scared a few people away. However, most replied with similar answers. It wasn’t segregated into color of skin, religious beliefs or cultural backgrounds. It was for one soul purpose, to create a better life. In one way or another.
If they replied with, “I am traveling for a vacation.”
It was to improve their lives. Enrich their souls and regroup.
Several were returning home to bury a loved one or say farwell. Although sad, it continues to be the reason they are traveling is to improve their lives. Through accepting and having the closure.
Others said for work. When I asked the traveling saleswoman if she was only paid in travel, room and board would she continue this career path. She immediately responded with, “NO. What would be the point?”
What would be the point? There wouldnt be, for the woman who is busting her butt to create a better life for her kids.
Yet, this type of set up would work well and be an improvement for someone in a different circumstance.
But wait a minute…if people are so different why are we all in pursuit of the same results? Because people are ‘people’ all across the world and although our differences allow for interesting individuality, we are all striving for…
A better feeling. A best or ideal situation for me and my family.
Here is the most freeing portion of this story…it is okay! You are okay! We all want ‘better’ out of life.
You begin at your point of reference and I will begin at mine. And we will cross paths along the way. After all, we are all on this terrific journey…together.
May you be blessed today.
Know that no matter where you are at this point in your life, YOU ARE LOVED!
