You might think everyone has their goals figured out but that’s false. There are still people out there who don’t find it easy finding out what goals or dreams to pursue. This is not because they are devoid of ideas rather it is because they have shut themselves out from their sense of creativity and intuition.
People say they don’t know what they want, but I don’t buy that. I think you do know what you want; I think you’re rejecting it before you give it any serious thought. Society has conditioned us that fantasies are for children and not for adults. That makes it so easy to reject our dreams. Think back to when you were a child.
Your individual goal doesn’t have to be completely earth-shattering, but your imagination is key to finding and achieving what you truly want from your own life.
Find a quiet place and for the next few moments, give yourself permission to daydream. Dust the cobwebs off your imagination, relax, and let your mind wander.
Now, ask yourself the following questions.
If there were absolutely no limitations,
- What would my ideal life be like?
- What kind of health would I have?
- How would I be fulfilled?
- What kind of wealth?
- What kind of love?
Start writing down your answers with no filter. Be brave and don’t judge yourself for anything that comes up, no matter how silly or unrealistic it seems right now. This is simply the beginning of the creative process and no one else will read this list if you don’t want anyone to.
Imagine there was nothing to hold you back. What do you want? What do you really love to do? That’s what your purpose and goal will be all about.
