What are the steppingstones to create a life that you love?Jul 30, 2022
“You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going, because you might not get there.”
Know what you want
When you know what you want, and you are aligned with your mission your desire to get to where you want to be rises.
When approached with the wants and needs of others you check-in with yourself and ask yourself questions like;
- Is this aligned with my mission and purpose?
- Does it contribute to where I want to go?
This gives you clarity and it helps you prioritize and stay on track with what you want.
What might come in our way to get clear on what we want is everyday stress, lack of time to think and too many things to do.
A deliberate practice of checking-in with yourself with the question,
- What is it that I want?
Can help you. 10 minutes of self-reflection and journaling an answer to this question can help you to identify your values and bring more clarity in your next steps.
“The starting point of all achievement is desire”
– Napoleon Hill
Clarity and purpose with a desire becomes a driving force of initiative and helps you to step into committed action.
It is like an intangible force that keeps you on track, helps you to do what serves you the most.
You will not stop because you do not consider it as an option, you know you need to get to where you want to go.
It is a burning desire.
How specific are you about what you desire and know that you want?
“Losers quit when they fail. Winners Fail until they succeed”
– Robert Kiyosaki
What kind of mindset, belief and perspective do you have on the challenges and obstacles that come in the way for what you want?
What if challenges are potentials in disguise and are there to inform you about qualities you need to develop?
What if they tell you that you are not yet fully living your values?
This is where most of us have our blind-spots and mastering this is where you can accelerate your growth the most.
It requires a will to go through the problem, living it, experience it and learn from it.
The most effective way is to sit quietly for some time and observe your problem from a distance.
- What is the learning that you can get from this challenge?
Observe until you see the answer.
As simple and as difficult as that.
If you feel resistance, keep going, this is where you will find hidden treasures.
I invite you to reflect on Wholehearted Life Model, a model I have created as a visualization of how we peel the onion, layer by layer.
