The only help that can be found in finding your goal is asking the right questions.
There are only two options for finding a goal: you simply live according to the circumstances, or you yourself form the circumstances for life. If you do what others want, then the result will be a picture of life that may not coincide with your ideas. But if you do what you like, for which you start your day with joy, this is the true path to the goal.
The second path requires a creative approach, the ability to go your own way and non-banal solutions. The goal in life, as a destination, requires an integrated approach.
Feel the flow
When you wake up with full enthusiasm and awareness that you are doing what is interesting to you and it benefits people. This is tantamount to being in the flow: this is how they describe the moments when a person is so absorbed in his work that time slows down for him.
Think about the last time you experienced this? What would you be doing if you didn’t get paid for it? And if, on the contrary, you had an unlimited source of income, what would you do? What fills you with energy?
Take one small step every day
In any business, the hardest part is getting started. You think about how much you need to do to achieve the goal and your head is spinning from such thoughts. It’s easier to break the task into small parts/steps and go for it. If you devote a little time every day, then in 21 days your activity will be transformed into a habit. And when you see the first fruits of your efforts, you yourself will not notice how you will devote more time to your activities.
Recognize and discuss your feelings
Be mindful of everything that happens. Ask yourself how your actions make you feel and what they give you. Discuss your feelings with friends, this will help you to correctly prioritize your life. Sometimes there are so many thoughts that there is nowhere to put them, and your environment knows you well and can look at your thoughts with a fresh look.
Listen to your intuition
No wonder they say: “The first thought is the right one.” The first thought is what our subconscious tells us, it is a connection with something higher. Ask questions to your inner voice, seek the answer from intuition and do not doubt its correctness.
Numerous studies have proven that meditation has a positive effect on the brain. A person becomes more balanced and less sensitive to stimuli. In addition, meditation makes it easier to let go of fears, pain and resentment and increases the level of concentration.
Get rid of worries
This point is somewhat similar to the previous one. Anxiety takes too much time and effort. Switching to depressing thoughts makes it difficult for you to focus on the current moment. Set aside a specific time for worrying, such as 30 minutes every day. When a wave of anxiety hits you, say, “You can’t worry at all right now. You’ll have to wait until it’s time to worry.”
Try to ignore the upcoming worries, and when the time comes for excitement, fully immerse yourself in the process. You can even make a list of your fears and anxieties, but do not open it at other times.
Grab a notebook and a pen and answer these questions for yourself:
- What would a goal be like doing what you love?
- How will I know that I have reached (achieved) the goal?
- Where? When? And with whom will I achieve my goal?
- Is the target under control?
- What outweighs the pros or cons?
- Do I have the necessary resources, and if not, what will I need. (Resources include: material values, knowledge, skills, acquaintances, personal values, beliefs, time)
- Where do I start? What is the first step?
If you have the makings of an artist, paint a picture for yourself when you have already reached your goal. By scrolling through these thoughts, you will have a clear plan in which direction to move.
