What is your why? What is your purpose? Did you know life gets simpler when we ask ourselves, why we do things. What are your priorities? What is really important to you? These questions are pretty individual, but I personally think most of us discover 3 essentials which answer these questions. But our walks vary, so will our answers at different periods of life.
You should always ask why? What is your why? Sounds simple, but for some of us it might not be so simple, others will answer this relatively fast. I will say once you find the answers to your whys, you will be asking whats important next.
In life or with opportunities in front of you, you should have at least these five questions.
- why try?
- why not?
- why not you?
- why not now?
Once you discover or identify your why, then you need to find a path to accomplishing it. Sometimes you find the path you are on is not really part of your why or it complicates your why. I find myself looking for simplicity. I do this in my everyday life, spiritual life and I do it when looking at work opportunities too. Why? Because I do not like complexity(don’t get me wrong, I worked in ICU for years and it is complex medically and psychologically). But for me, I need simple things, things in nature are often simple in their beauty and life journey, yet if you study them scientifically the life forces are really complex. That is fine with me, because the Divine Creator knows all and He can deal with it and He can gift scientists to learn as He chooses.
My why involves, my God. But some of you do not have that faith, so your purpose may be abit more complex or simpler, depending on your perspective.
My why involves family and friends. And it involves service to others. It also has a need to be responsible for the chooses I make, good, indifferent and bad.
I am retired from my JOB and believe me I was ready. But I still need a supplement in my family income, so I also seek online income. I do not like selling people, but I do like sharing and inviting others to look and see what I do. Maybe, you are a hard core sales person and are rolling your eyes at me. OH well, it is ok.
But back to you! Remember, no matter where you are. It is never too late to starts over. If you were not happy with yesterday, try something new today. Do not stay stuck in yesterday. Move into the present moment and do better.
Once you discover more about yourself and what is your why, you will find you have some goals or maybe just one goal. Here is a goal example, you can post your goal in my comments if you want or just internalize it, or write in on a sticky note and put it on the fridge.
GOAL: Life is short. But it makes our time more precious, so let me treasure every second with my loved ones, even those who are far from me.
Well, now I HAVE THAT freedom and my next goal is to pay off some bills and have a family vacation. Which is why I joined a friend who asked me to take a leap of faith with her. Heck it wasn’t a leap, it was a baby step cause the investment was so small. All I have to do is take action by sharing with others something that is simple and can be duplicated.
Folks if this interests you leave a comment, if not please keep seeking your own personal goals and share with us, if you care to.
So, here is a link to my little home biz venture that I plan to pay off a few bills with (another goal I have).
