The hard truth is that if you don't create your life, someone else will create it for you. Yes, sometimes s*#t happens that leads to experiences we didn't plan for, and some of those experiences become defining moments in our lives. But, there are plenty of other moments that WE define and drive based on our mindset and the actions we take. Stop letting life happen to you and start making it happen for you.
Some tips on defining what you want:
1) Write a bucket list with 100 things you want to do before you die.
2) Define the lifestyle you want in every major area of your life (Career, Family, Relationships, Health, Spirituality, Recreation etc.).
3) Define your talents and your passion. Have an honest conversation about what your talents are and what they are not. Discover areas where you can apply those talents to meaningful work that inspires passion inside you.
4) Share these outcomes with everyone you know.
"Vision without Action is a Daydream."
Too often, we're all talk. It drives me nuts to hear someone say, "I'm gonna...I want to...One day I hope to..." What are you doing right now, in this moment, to take action to make those things happen? Each day, you're either a day closer to your vision or you're not. It's your pick. Taking action on an idea is the only real way we discover whether or not the idea works. Spend less time talking, planning and deciding how you're going to do something. Spend more time defining a clear vision and taking action that will help you learn and push you towards your outcome.
Nightmares keep you up at night. Daydreams waste your time. Define what you want , and start living the dreams that matter.
