You can find your goal today 🙌🏻
when we are born, we know if we need something, and we do everything to get it. we would scream and cry, make everybody uncomfortable and tired. because for us our desires are very important and they have to be fulfilled.
but we are good learners. and if on our way we get shut down too often, we learn not to listen to our desires. when following our desires gets us into the troubles, or we get punished for them, we learn not to follow them. we taught that it’s selfish and not how we should act. so we learn to get directions from outside. we pick up goals for ourselves from others - parents, friends, society, colleagues, etc.
but life without your own goal is painful. you won’t feel fulfilled even after achieving great things if they don't coordinate with your own goal or purpose. but how do you find your own goal if you feel like you don’t have one? good news is - deep inside each of us has it. and if you feel like you don't, a great goal for you right now would be to find your goal or create it. here are few things we use that can help with that. ask yourself:
❓what did you do in your spear time when you were a kid?
❓what would you do if money was not an object?
❓what do you enjoy doing, you even lose track of time?
❓how would you like to see your everyday life?
write down all the answers and try to look at the bigger picture. what all of these answers have in common? if you wanted to be a doctor when you were a kid, doesn’t necessarily mean that your purpose is to be one. it could just show that you are a caring person, who wants to help people, to make this world a better place. keep digging and don’t stop till you feel that you got your answer. it might not happen right away. but it is in your best interest to try, and try till you get your answer.
to help yourself more, try to listen to your desires in everyday life. with little things, like what to eat, what to wear, what to do. don’t do it automatically, ask yourself every single time - what do i want. and do that. try following your desires for at least a week; you’ll see amazing things happening. remember you can find your goal today!
