Define Your Goals
A lot of people don’t have purpose, direction or even motivation to move toward what they want, because they haven’t defined what “that” is. They don’t have goals.
How many times have you heard someone say, “I don’t know,” when asked, “What do you want to do in life?” or, “Where do you see yourself ive years from now?”
Ask that same question to preschoolers and they’ll rattle off a whole list of things they want to be or do when they grow up. They know exactly what they want. No one has shattered their dreams or stomped on their hopes.
“Wise adults” will shake their heads and smile knowingly. “Wait until you grow up and meet the real world,” they’re thinking. It’s sad but true that many adults give up on their dreams because they let them get crushed by the realities of bills, mortgages, raising a family, and all the other pressures of being an adult.
If you reach into your deepest memory pockets, I bet you’ll still find those same dreams tucked away, just waiting for you to pull them out and dust them off.
It all starts with deciding:
⇒ what you want
⇒ where you want to go
⇒ what you want to have, and
⇒ how you want to live.
In other words, it starts with deciding to live on purpose.
