Hi and welcome to this blog! I hope that these words that you are about to read will help you mitigate emotional weights and worries that take away your peace every day. Today I want to talk to you about a heavyweight and a tremendous destabilizer of our emotions and it is to seek the answer to the following question: What is my purpose in life?
This question has been haunting me maybe since I was 13 years old and if I tell you the truth, I still don't know if I can answer it with total clarity. That said, in this blog, I am not going to tell you the steps to your fulfillment or how you can achieve success in your business since there simply is no perfect recipe or a master formula for these purposes. I want to speak to you from the bottom of my heart and if at the end of reading this blog you feel a little more motivated, this blog will have served its purpose.
1. Acting by inertia vs thinking twice.
Since we were little we have been raised by a system that has already defined a path to success, this is why without thinking about it our parents enrolled us in a school, then we are "directed" towards an established profession, and then we begin the search of a job that can give us enough to live well and do in our free time what we like. But, in some of these steps, we have stopped to question if this is really what we want to do or if I am doing it only because society urges me to do it?. Most likely, for many of us, the answer will be that we have made much of our decisions out of inertia, because everyone does it or because it is the right thing to do for the society in which we live.
2. Are you happy where are you now?
Yes, take your time and answer: are you really happy where you are now? And don't just think about where you are physically or where you are working, think about yourself and the level of personal fulfillment that you think you have at this moment. If your answer is No, you have already taken the first step to go after your dreams. I know, the above sounded cheesy, but it's true! Dissatisfaction is the first sign that change is coming!
3. It is not about the goal, the journey is what matters.
Now that you want a change, I recommend you set big goals, that if you tell someone else they might laugh out loud in disbelief. No matter how big and unreachable they may seem, what counts is that when you think about these goals a spark is lit within you. Now, after dreaming a bit, we must plan that route, that path that will lead us towards these goals. We have to put aside the desire for the immediate and put in our mind that, without effort, sweat, tears, and dedication, we will not achieve anything durable and stable. For this reason, the path or the route is the most important thing and it will mold you and give you the necessary skills to achieve the dreams that bring you the biggest smile.
4. All roads are different.
The comparison! How hard it is to deal with the comparison! If you get stuck comparing your path to other people's, I tell you in all honesty, you are not going to achieve anything. You must understand that each process is different, that if your dreams are the same as those of your friends it would be worth it for everyone to take the same course. But it is not like that, your goals and dreams are unique, as well as your path towards them and this is what will form you as a person, walk a path in which you will have to discover the path and in many cases, invent these paths.
As you can see, there are no formulas or treasure maps! But I want to share with you some tips that have helped me not to lose motivation, focus, and always be at my maximum productivity. I read them in an article in Forbes magazine and I feel that they can help all the people who want a change and who want to reach their full potential as a person. These tips are:
- Plan your day in advance:
This will help you not spend another day and say: I did nothing today! Make a plan for each day where your main priorities have space.
- Eat well and exercise.
Being productive depends a lot on the state of your body! If your body is not right, your mind is not!
- It's not just about you.
Serve others! People who focus solely on their personal fulfillment and success tend to fail. When your mindset is programmed to serve others, you will be unstoppable.
- Set clear goals.
Don't drift aimlessly. Set short, medium, and long-term goals.
- You have to be willing to unlearn
You can always learn new things. You must be willing to put ego and pride aside.
- Evaluate your actions every day.
Don't let a day go by without evaluating your actions. If you are not satisfied with any of them, it is time to change!
These 6 points have been of great help to me and I hope they can also help you on your way. Here is the Forbes magazine article so that you can read it and motivate yourself to be unstoppable: https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/246246?fbclid=IwAR1OK3_ucs7bUEf0Yc9uGATN-FIOJWPvU1yMp0wcMQsfF1fMktmpym582T4
And this is the end of this blog! I hope that a spark has been lit within you. Remember that nothing is written, that you have total control over your future, and that every action and decision counts.
