Do you want a more fulfilling life? If youíre wondering what you should do with your life, here are a few tips to set out in the right direction.
For almost all of us, life can be a crisis in motion.
No matter where we are or what we do, weíre always left with second thoughts, hopes and more dreams.If you really want to change your life for the better or are confused about what you should do, just use these 10 simple steps. Itís all you need to refocus and redirect your life in a better path.
# Start today
If you feel like you need to do something with your life, donít put that thought away. If youíre unsatisfied with your life, try to understand what you dislike about how you live your life. Understanding the things that bother you will help you understand what you really want better.
Start today, because the earlier you start to work towards personal fulfillment or your dreams of wealth and riches, the earlier youíll achieve it. And donít be a procrastinator because thatís the worst person you can ever be.
To start your new journey, ask yourself this important question before moving to the next step. What do you really want from life? Donít moan or whine. Just what the hell do you really want?
# Make a list of things you like
What are you good at? And how do you think you can get closer to your dream life by using the ability youíre good at? These two questions will help you create a list of things you can do with your life thatíll give you satisfaction and help you pursue your dream.
Remember, you donít need to start a new Facebook to become a billionaire nor do you need to be born with a silver spoon stuck in any of your orifices. Even a small start and smaller ideas can help you set the foundation to greater things in life.
Many of the richest people in the world didnít start out with a big idea immediately. They started small and created new paths to achieve success and happiness in life. Think Oprah or Richard Branson. They started really small by doing things they were passionate about, and today, theyíre living the dream, arenít they?
List out ten things youíre passionate about and pick your three favorite options to pursue.
# Beating the crossroads
Crossroads are the biggest confusions in life. They can trick you, confuse you into making the wrong choices and torment your mind for years when you feel like youíve taken a few bad roads.
But thatís what life is all about. Itís a series of crossroads. Every day, youíre going to face your own crossroads, be it big or small. Sometimes, even the briefest of conversations can impact you or change your life forever.
If you know what you desire from life *for most of us, itís immeasurable wealth!* start to pick directions that can lead you towards attaining that life. Donít pressurize yourself by setting unattainable milestones right at the beginning. Dream big, but start small and choose the right direction that you think will get you closer to your dreams.
# Draw inspiration from others
Who are your favorite role models who have achieved what you wish to achieve? In all probability, youíd find their autobiography in a bookstore. Read their autobiographies, and learn from their mistakes and victories. You donít need to retrace their steps to the tee. But just understanding the hardships and the problems they endured on their way to success can help you prepare yourself for your own journey.
And beyond autobiographies, find ways to stay inspired every day, be it by watching a happy fella on the television or spending a few minutes on Youtube everyday watching inspirational speeches from regular folk or movies. These are the little things thatíll make the hair on your arms stand on end and push you every day to pursue your dream life aggressively.
# Follow your passion
Donít lose focus of your goals. For most of us, making a list of things we wish to do in life is easy. The difficult part is pursuing that dream without giving up. You may be keen to do something with your life, but you really canít achieve it unless you spend a considerable part of your day working towards that goal.
You canít climb the next step tomorrow unless you set the stepping stone today. Remember this line, and every day, indulge in at least one simple activity thatíll bring you closer to your dream. Before you know it, you would have achieved your dream life without even realizing it. After all, every journey begins with a single step and every achievement has to start somewhere.
# Itís a phase
When you feel low or lost in life, remember itís only a phase. Donít look back at the happy times and wonder where theyíve gone. It wonít help you get ahead in life. This feeling of helplessness is just a phase and it will all pass as long as you consciously work towards changing your life.
But at the same time, donít pursue your dreams too aggressively right at the beginning. Youíll end up tiring yourself out. Itís just like working out. Work out too aggressively in the first week, and youíll feel sore and sick of it. Pursuing your dreams works along the same rules too. Thereís really no point in working 20 hours a day, only to lose the passion and desire to achieve something better.
# There are simple ways, never easy ways
Donít ever choose the easy and sneaky path. Most people these days always look for the easiest way possible, be it about losing weight, impressing the opposite sex or earning money. Donít be that person.
Really, there is no easy way. There are simple ways and bright ideas. But you canít achieve anything by cheating your way to success. Youíll end up crashing sooner than you think and even feel worse about yourself.
If you want to succeed in life, be prepared to get your hands dirty and work hard along the way. Think out of the box if you must, but donít look for easy ways by cheating someone else of what rightfully belongs to them.
# Money or satisfaction, or both?
Money isnít the answer to everything. It may seem like that today, but when you finally achieve your dreams of hoarding wealth, you may look back and regret the path or the losses youíve had to endure to achieve what youíve achieved.
Donít pursue a dream with the sole intention of earning more money. Itís an empty dream. Even if earning a lot more money is your idea, provide a service thatís worthwhile and something that genuinely helps others. Deserve what you earn. By doing that, youíll feel a bigger purpose thatís beyond money thatíll help you sleep better at night.
# Compromises and milestones
We canít achieve the goals in our mind all the time. In other words, our goals are like a stream of water flowing downhill. You can point them in a direction, but you canít control it. As we grow and evolve, our dreams too evolve to better suit our needs and desires.
Donít forget your ultimate dreams just like the stream of water that finally reaches the bottom of the hill, but be flexible enough to make compromises with your milestones and the directions you choose. When you see a better opportunity, grab it with both hands. And when you see yourself going in a direction thatís taking you away from your dreams, move away.
Along this path, donít forget to set milestones for your dreams. Every year, you should be in a better place than you were last year. It doesnít always have to be related financially. Sometimes, even a few experiences that you learn can be worth a lot.
# Donít hold your life back
In the pursuit of your dreams, donít neglect your life or your loved ones. Itís good to be ambitious and determined, but not at the cost of losing your present life. Donít sacrifice so much that youíll end up hating yourself for taking the steps youíve taken.
If you have a good day job, stick to it but spend a few hours every day bringing yourself closer to your dreams. If you spend a few hours of alone time with your lover every day, donít give up on that. Find ways to pursue your dream without too many sacrifices. This really is the most important final step you need to remember along your way to a better life.
