It’s always good to have something to work towards and aspire to. In her book ‘The Creator’s Code’, Amy Williamson cites research that shows that people achieve a lot more in life when they focus on what they want to work towards – rather than what they have already done.
This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t celebrate your successes as they happen – I’m all for that – but having some goals and aspirations will enable to you start, step by step, to move towards the life you’ve always wanted. Doesn’t that sound amazing, especially if you’re currently struggling to find focus?
Can I let you in on a secret?
When you develop that focus and direction, it’ll make it simple for you to remove anything from your life that is, quite frankly, sucking up your time and keeping you from doing what you really want to do. That stuff could be people, a job, a situation, or even something you’re doing to yourself (often unintentionally) to distract yourself from where you want to go.
I used to be good at that – always the one organising the social occasions as, I suppose, a form of procrastination, avoiding having to make those big decisions and struggling to find focus. These days, I’m still organising things and being social, but I make sure I give myself the time and focus to reflect on my goals and aims in life.
We don’t have to start with the big stuff here (unless you want to, in which case get in touch) such as where you want to be in 2 years, 5 years, 10 years. That’s probably a bit much to take on at the moment, but I’ve created a free worksheet that will help you free up your mind and start to clarify what you want in the here and now. You can check it out here.
Start to unlock your potential
I know you’re struggling to find focus, and I get it. That’s why I put together this tool to ask some of the questions I’ve used with clients, and on myself, to start to figure out what they and I really wanted in life. And of course this can change in time – things don’t always stay the same – but the questions, provided you sit down, relax and enjoy the process (you are allowed to play with this and have fun -okay?) are designed to draw out those flashes of inspiration.
Imagine yourself in your old age, sitting on the rocking chair looking back – what would you have liked to have achieved? These questions start to paint a picture of what’s most important to you in life, so why not check it out, for free, today?
I guarantee you’re going end up with some really inspirational answers to the questions, so don’t forget to come back once you’ve done it. What did uncover in your mind? More importantly, what steps are you going to take now? Comment below, and let me know if you need any help.
