Many of us go through life not knowing who we are, what we want, and what our purpose in life is.
We sometimes take the negative occurrences that happen to us along the way that make us feel less confident in what we are pursuing and lose motivation on the journey to success and fulfillment in life.
It begins with self-awareness
Know what your values and beliefs are, and what purpose in life you want to pursue. For true happiness, you need to follow a path based on who you are, and not someone else’s dreams and goals. By chasing your own, you will get much more satisfaction in life.
What you want from life is delivered in the form of feelings
Messages about what you want from life are delivered in the form of feelings. You need to question something if you feel bad about it, and change it to how would you like it to be?
It is a process of learning about developing self-improvement. If you aren’t comfortable with how something is, see how you might feel if the opposite was done and if the change would make you happy with life.
Just because something bad happens, doesn’t mean we have to remain in a rut. Be aware, and take a course of action to help improve your life.
You need a sense of direction
Set your priorities toward objectives that are worth your time. Decrease your workload to improve your key to success. Focus on what will get you there, quality is better than quantity.
Now you need clarity
One of the biggest obstacles to staying focused is distraction. Be more committed and focused on the activities you should be doing.
Know and play to your strengths. Personal development is a continuous journey, making it easier to do the activities you need to do. You don’t need to be perfect, as you are constantly improving.
Motivation is next
Motivation is next, and one of the biggest obstacles to motivation is the goal might be bigger than you thought. You feel overwhelmed and that you can’t achieve it, and are no longer motivated.
It is a process and you just need to be motivated to take the next action or step. Each action takes you closer to your end goal.
This part I can really relate to, as there are times you try to do too many things at once, thinking things will happen quicker, but instead you are so overwhelmed, and nothing seems to be happening, and then you become discouraged, and it is hard to stay motivated at that point.
Figure out a plan of action that will take you in a positive direction
Now we have resilience which is learning to deal with tough times as they occur. We are all human and make mistakes in life, and bad things can happen that are out of our control.
We can all change our circumstances or at least our attitude towards a bad experience. Stay calm and take a deep breath, and be in control of whatever crashes down on you!
Figure out a plan of action that will take you in a positive direction in resolving or minimizing your situation. Not easy at times, right, but it can be done!
Relationships can be good or they can be toxic. Find the ones that have the most positive impact on your life.
Pick friends who help you to be a better person and the person you want to be. Be friendly with everyone, but friendship should be given more thought and value.
True friendship is making time for them and going above and beyond in the relationship. You care for your well-being, as they are important to you.
Many times we work too hard on the wrong people as friends, and not enough on who we should be giving time to. Have friendships that are mutually beneficial, where both of you bring out the best in each other, and your life will benefit from this.
YOU are your greatest resource! With time and effort, the rewards will be amazing. The key to success is managing yourself in different situations and all this is achieved through personal development.
What are your strong points in your personal development? Below are some books from Amazon that might be helpful.
“If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy, and inspires your hopes.”
