Want to Win in Life cont
Be clear on why you’re here and decide on what you want
I believe each of us is born with a life purpose. Identifying, acknowledging and honouring this purpose is perhaps the most important action successful people take.
They take the time to understand what they’re here to do, and then they pursue that purpose with passion and enthusiasm.
If you don’t know what you’re supposed to be doing, tune in to the signals around you. Looking toward others for help and guidance is helpful, but don’t forget to stay tuned in to yourself—your behaviour, attitude, likes and dislikes, and life experiences.
Identify what’s working and what isn’t. If you need to, write it all down. You might be surprised by what you discover.
Decide what you want-It sounds so simple, but here’s the problem: I see plenty of people who are overly busy yet who feel unsatisfied and unfulfilled. They are physically tired, spiritually drained, and far from where they’d like to be—as if they’ve been running on a treadmill going nowhere fast. I know, I was one of them 18 months ago!!
Why? Because they haven’t clearly mapped out what they want and then taken the steps to get there. Rather than identifying specific goals, milestones, and dreams (and I’m talking BIG dreams and goals here), they go through the motions day in and day out tackling unimportant tasks. They end up…you guessed it…going in circles and wasting lots of energy. In the meanwhile, they grow increasingly uninspired and out of touch with their authentic selves. This, of course, sets anyone up to living a life out of balance.
One of the main reasons why most people don’t get what they want is they haven’t decided what they want. They haven’t defined their desires in clear and compelling detail. What does success look like to you? Not everybody’s definition of success is the same, nor should it be.
Don’t let your inner devil’s advocate (or that incessant but unimportant To Do list) inhibit you from dreaming big. As soon as you commit to a big dream and really go after it, your subconscious creative mind will come up with big ideas to make it happen. You’ll start attracting the people, resources, and opportunities you need into your life to make your dream come true.
Big dreams not only inspire you, but they also compel others to want to play big too.
