ASKING YOURSELF THE ULTIMATE QUESTIONS: WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE?
We all want to fulfil our potential and make a big impact on life. After all, we only get a life once and we want to make the most of it.
We all have the ability to make a change, and the fact that you’re reading this article now means that you want to make change. That’s a great first step.
Find out your why
I know it sounds lame, but understanding your “why” is the key to motivation, which will unlock the door to taking action and finding fulfilment. What’s important to remember is that this isn’t some big esoteric question. You just need to decide what’s important for you at this current time.
Write down a list of things that you want to achieve in life and that you enjoy doing. Maybe it’s buying a house and spending time with your friends and family.
The answers might be different for everyone. But it’s very hard to find your “why” if you don’t know what’s important to you. The trick is to get rid of the unimportant things and focus on things that actually fulfil your “why”.
Is your “why” actually meaningful?
This is important to consider.
If you’re “why” is simply about material objects or impressing other people, then it’s not going to end well. You can’t let other people dictate your life.
In general, if your “why” is about your significant relationships, your values or your character, you’ll achieve a lot more personal growth as you go about your journey.
When understand your “why”, your actions are always meaningful.
You’ll be confident, calm and ready to take action.
When your focus is elsewhere, you’ll feel cloudy and lacking in motivation. You need to focus on what you have now and what you can realistically achieve in the future.
