So what are you shooting for and are you there yet?
So many of us in life, me included, have big goals and dreams in life, always striving, moving forward to that ‘one day’ life that sometimes seems so out of reach. Whatever it is for you. It could be the bikini fit body, perfect partner, financially free, dream home, just to lose the last 5 kgs, dream holiday, if I just won the lottery my life would be different. WHATEVER……
Have you ever stopped to really think what’s behind that ‘thing’ that you’re striving so hard to get, and the closer you seem to get to it, it always seems so far away.
I remember when I was teenager, I was saving up for a VW Beetle for my 1st car, I was mad about them, bought all the retro magazines etc. I set my goal, I knew what I was aiming for. A year later, when I thought I had enough money, I looked at the ‘market price’ in the magazines, and they seemed to have gone up in price, I felt deflated.
But what that car would give me, was a feeling of ‘freedom’, even though the ‘thing’ seemed so far away I could feel the same emotion of freedom in the present moment. As let’s be honest we only have the ‘present, here and now’ to deal with. So the question soon became, how can I feel more ‘free’ in the present, while still focussing on my goal.
So my questions for you are :-
- What are you striving for?
- How will you feel when you achieve that goal?
- What can you do today to feel that same emotion now?
- What can you do everyday, to continue to feel that emotion? (Come up with 3-5 different ways you can feel that emotion)
Let me know how you go in the comments below.
