LIFE CAN BE MORE MEANINGFUL IF WE HAVE A PURPOSE
We are so busy working on the various daily tasks in our life that we often forget to work on life itself. We may not realize it, but it is the most valuable asset we have got. We can't live meaningfully without any vision to accomplish. We all were sent here on earth for a reason and we need to realize it and fulfill that purpose. Life should be planned and managed. One may not know how to get started with this seemingly great task but it’s pretty simple to start.
Just like our any other projects, our very first step will be to decide a goal.
“Setting a goal is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible”
So, goal is decided on the basis of our dreams. Initially, we need to allow yourself to dream beyond boundaries (there are no boundaries existing outside our mind, only within). The basic reason for dreaming is, we will get a clearer idea of who we are or who we want to become. We must never think that our imagination is impossible to reach. If we can dream it, we can achieve it; but only if we work for it. Just desiring won’t work, we need to think deeply and logically. We need to touch upon every aspect; our personal life, professional life, health, fun, etc. This won’t happen overnight; it may take time. But designing a blueprint for our life deserves our time.
Now, this plan may not stay the same forever, but we can definitely start by trusting this path. We will have to fill in the gap between who we are and who we want to be by sacrifices, struggles, pain, hard work, and many more unspecified things. Remember, the hardest climb often leads to a beautiful destination.
Once we have a goal and plan, we don’t need to take too long to think, but just start working from the next minute. Life doesn’t give deadlines, but we must create our own. That is how we can make sure that we follow the plan that we created. We will keep on living life, enjoy the journey and have fun. However, the thing which we will need most frequently is motivation and willpower to keep ourselves straying from our path.
And once we are on the path, we need to remind ourselves how far we have come. No one has a superpower, the only power we have is our thoughts, our passion and our hard work.
We can keep on going back and checking on our plan. Improve it and grow ourselves. Amongst all this, we don’t need to stress ourselves by worrying about the future: we need to stay calm, meditate daily and live in present.
By having a vision for who we want to be, we can make sure that we stay on a path that leads to our dreams. We can create a life doesn’t happen to us, but is created by our own vision and effort.
