Rather than watching endless news streams, you can choose to focus on a bigger picture - your future. What do you want from the rest of your life? We have seen so much going on in the world over the last few month death, injustice, a pandemic, murder, riots, and protesting. Ask yourself what would you be disappointed in that you did NOT do? Where do you envision yourself in five years or even ten years?
Live the Life of Your Dreams: Be brave enough to live the life of your dreams according to your vision and purpose instead of the expectations and opinions of others."
Roy T. Bennett
Having a clear vision of how you want your life to be is a powerful motivator. A vision helps us work towards our goals, take action and make change. Are you writing your goals down? I find that writing down your goals will actually make it real for you, putting it in your journal or even on sticky notes so you can see.
"Write the vision make it plain"
Soon, we'll all be super-busy again - and a vision might be just what you need to stay focused!
Here are five questions to ponder or journal around to go deeper:
What do you desire or yearn for in your life?
How do you want to feel?
What do you really, really want to be different in your life?
What would have happened in 3 years time such that your life is spectacular and you feel magnificent about yourself?
What's your dream for this lifetime? Imagine you're 90 years old and looking back over your life; what did you do that made you proud and happy?
TIP: Remember to think possibility not probability! Don't limit yourself and your ideas because you don't believe something is likely. Instead believe it's possible - and even if you don't get all the way there, you may get close - or even find something better along the way!
