Your life is very important. Since you were born, it means that it is not just like that. But do you know what your true purpose is? What do you need to achieve in order to know that you have not lived in vain?
Of course, I understand that all people are different, and everyone thinks about it in their own way. But still, for many, many people, my conclusions will coincide with their own reality.
I must say right away that goals in life will constantly change. This is normal: in life, everything usually changes much faster than we notice. Therefore, you need a goal not for life, but at least for the next few years.
Here are 15 questions to help you find her
What gives me energy?
Events that bring us closer to the goal energize us. The same things that we do not like, energy is taken from us. Watch your body and mind. If it seems to you that you feel tired for years, then you need new life guidelines.
What worries me?
Important and pleasant things can be skillfully combined. You just need to be very clear about what is important to you and what is important to your family, parents, friends, or boss. The more things you do for yourself and not for others, the happier you will be. And the easier it will be for you to overcome obstacles on the way.
What do I think about when I take a shower?
The time you take a shower can be the most enjoyable time of the day. This is normal, as it is typical for almost everyone. So somehow think about what you usually think about when you do your morning routine. About a new project? About family? About travel? You definitely need to think about all this. And if that – in a different way to prioritize.
What kind of things do people ask me?
Do people ask your opinion on something? What could you tell us as an expert? The answer to this question tells about the areas in which you could be useful to the world.
What do I talk about with my loved ones?
What do you talk about in the family? What stories do you tell your partner, and what topics do you usually talk about with your father? Are you sure that with the majority of interlocutors it is you who sets the tone of the conversation?
What do I do in my free time from work, family and hobbies?
Your actions indicate your true priorities.
What have I been reading about lately?
Were these books or articles on the Internet? Professional or entertainment content? Answer this question and you will find out what you are really interested in.
What dreams do I have?
Sleep is what happens in your subconscious. Look for meaning in dreams, but on your own, without esoteric wisdom.
When and under what circumstances have I felt most alive lately?
That’s what really turns you on.
Do my interests and my abilities often coincide? What childhood fear do I still have to overcome?
What would I do if money didn’t matter to me?
What would I do if I was absolutely, 100% not interested in what other people think of me?
Once you have a lot of money, public opinion is your only limit. What would you do if there were no restrictions? If you were completely free and could do anything, what kind of life would you live?
What things matter to me?
What is the most important item in your diary? What accomplishments will give you a deep sense of satisfaction? Surely these are things that move you towards a certain goal. What have you not realized yet?
What skills of mine could I mix together so that the result is interesting to other people?
How to find your style and create your own ideal product? Mix together a few of your key skills. Steve Jobs was a tough businessman because he knew how to combine two geniuses: a mathematician and a humanist, a techie and an advertiser, an engineer and a storyteller.
Do you remember the story about the baseball coach who successfully crossed sports and statistics? In general, find what to mix with – this will be the meaning of your work, and maybe life.
If you were given the opportunity to tell a little about yourself, but only in two sentences, what would they be?
I ask myself this question regularly. Once every few months, for many years. I think your current identity is much more important than your personal history. Get rid of the burden of the past.
Don’t worry about the future – it will take care of itself. Think about who you are and what is important to you right now.
Good luck finding something called “life”!
