Becoming Who You Want to Be: Guidelines and Goal Setting for an Enriched Life
In his early twenties in Hong Kong, Albert Cruz was undisciplined, discouraged, and unmotivated. Determined to change, he embarked on a vigorous quest to take charge of his life. Albert started writing down what he wanted to own and who he wanted to become — early “wish lists” that would evolve into his balanced goal-setting method. He searched for motivation and new ideas in books, speakers, courses, and mentors — knowledge he would eventually refine into his nine guidelines. At age 38, Albert’s goal setting and guidelines were put to the test when he left behind a comfortable life in Hong Kong and immigrated to America. Adapting to a foreign culture and establishing a new career was often painful, occasionally hilarious, and always rich with powerful lessons. Becoming Who You Want to Be traces Albert’s journey and introduces readers to the practices that helped him achieve success. After forty years of goal setting, Albert has checked off most items on his wish list, including higher education and financial independence. He truly has become the person he always wanted to be.
