Do you know what you want for yourself in life? Do you have a clear vision for your future? A lot of people have difficulty answering these questions.
They know what they’re supposed to want – what their parents, boss, friends or media tells them should want. But when it comes to the crunch, things just don’t add up and they are left confused about what it is they truly want. Confusion is the enemy of achievement. It is the ultimate roadblock. If we are not sure what it is that we want, it is impossible to direct our energy and resources into getting it.
So how do we combat confusion, get clarity and start to take control of our lives? One reason that people are confused is that they have not spent the time intentionally answering the questions that were posed above – What do I want for myself? What is my vision for the future? Before we start to make plans, set goals and energise ourselves into action, it is crucial that we ask and answer these questions in order to move from confusion to clarity. We need a clear vision of what we are trying to achieve.
In order to bring things into sharper focus, it might help to consider the question in relation to a few different categories...
What do I want with regards to; family, work, mental health, community, finances or any other area that is specifically important to you.
Once you have highlighted the things that you want, you can begin to do the planning and actions that will bring about achievement and success!
