You have to decide what you want your life to be. The power is with you.Click To Tweet

Until you decide that you are no longer willing to live your life just being comfortable, you will not step into that new life. You have to decide for yourself that where you are is not where you want to be. You have to decide what you want your life to be. The power is with you. No one can decide for you. You have to take a good look at your life and ask yourself a few questions.

  • What do I want my life to look like?

  • What really makes me happy?

  • In 10 years, I see myself doing what? living where?

Really think about your answers. Don’t just say  “I want more money” or “I want to hit the lottery” Think in concrete terms about things you can accomplish. If you want more money, think about how to get that money. Is it a new job or a new career? What are the steps you need to take to have that new career? What can you do today to start you on that path toward your future? See yourself in that office, writing that book, creating that art, living that life. Envision your future and then step into it.

I am planning on writing an update/progress post in the near future. I set a big goal when I wrote that post (one I haven’t verbalized to anyone yet), and although I am not quite there, I am working very hard at achieving it. Thanks for the inspiration to keep going 🙂

  17. No plan ever happened without intention. Thats why its so important to make plans and goals both short term and long term. I thought I was done making plans and goals (particularly big ones) after college. I was so wrong. Life is just not like that. You should never stop or you will not have anything to live for.
