Why is it that many people have no aims at all for their life? No aspirations for a greater life, no ambition to become and do more with their life, no direction on where they are heading, no goals, and no dreams. Don’t be fooled by this man made system that you have been born into, educated in, and surrounded by. Just because you are a part of the crowd now it does not mean that you have to be confined to this type of life.
Many people’s chief aims in life seem to be to just get through the week, to just pay their bills, and to go on holiday. Life and work does not have to be slavery, it should be one that is filled with service, impact, wealth, abundance, prosperity, and success.
When you are born your parents set the aim for you to go to school, then you aim to go to college, then get a job or go to university and then your aim in the job/career path is to climb that ladder up to the top.
However, reflect upon this, when you get to the top of that ladder do you think that you are going to be happy with the life that you lived? Many get to the top of another’s ladder and then look back in regret and say to themselves ‘I wasted my life living a lie’.
Go forward in time, one year, five years, ten years from now. What does life look like? Where are you? Who have you become? And what are you doing? Is that the life that you want?
Michael Gerber put it so eloquently when he said, “With no clear picture of how you wish your life to be, how on earth can you begin to live it?”
Action To Take:
Get a sheet of A4 piece of paper and write as a heading: Aims For My life.
- What is my primary aim in life?
- What do I value most?
- What kind of life do I want?
- What do I want to accomplish?
- What difference do I want to make in the world?
- What do I want my life to look like, to feel like?
- Who do I wish to be?
- Add more of your own
Come up with as many answers for each question as applicable, discipline yourself to get this done today.
Stop living an unintentional life, stop living a lie, and stop living someone else’s life. Awaken, you are who you choose to be, who you choose to be, no one is forcing you to be someone else, we are each co-creators of the life before us in a sense, as the power to dictate how your life pans out is up to you.
Get clear on your major aims for your life, live with purpose, set goals for your life, dream up a life of wealth, abundance, prosperity, and success. Believe in yourself and get started on living the life that you want to live. Remember, it is never too late to be who you might have been. Begin again but this time with your eyes on the prize and your focus on the grind.
Have the courage to start a new journey of success, start, envision, believe and persevere and success will be yours.
