Growing up, you were taught to adhere to an academic program that will ultimately (hopefully) lead you to a life that will provide satisfaction. You’ll have a stable career, a loving spouse, and the white picket fence surrounding your comfortable home. When evaluating your life goals and taking stock of your life, how do you measure up?
Start Taking Stock Of Your Life
Becoming an adult, you start to realize that so many variables play a role in how your life really turns out. Your career may contribute a lot of stress in your life, you might have chosen the wrong spouse – or never found them at all – and financial woes could lead to a mountain of other problems.
The good news is – it’s never too late. You don’t have to settle for anything less than everything you dreamed life could be. Whether that means taking stock of one unsatisfying part of your life, such as your finances, and revamping it – or de-constructing everything so you can rebuild it like you want, it’s easy to do once you understand the process.
Taking Stock Of Yourself
So many individuals think that they’re stuck – with health problems, with financial chaos, or with sour relationships – and they’re not stuck. They just haven’t realized that they have the power to change course. Simply look back and plan anew.
Goal Setting To Correct Your Life
To prepare for this journey, your first step will be goal setting – but not the typical “make a million dollars” broad goal you see so many dreamers put out there. You want precise, realistic goals you can work toward with action plans.
And that may very well include the ultimate goal of earning a million dollars, but there’s much more to the goal setting process than broad, sweeping statements meant to motivate you, but which fade away as quickly as they’re released into the air.
Review and Redefine How You Set Goals
Those goals won’t work themselves, so you’re going to need to learn how to create and implement a plan of action to take the goals from wishful thinking stage into something tangible.
Once you master the art of setting and achieving goals, you won’t want to stop where you left off – at the mediocre level where you thought you’d be content. You’ll want to see just what all you’re capable of, and that means rising to new heights not because you have to – but because you can.
Taking stock in your life
In addition to the R.E.A.D. concept discussed in the video, you need to know or learn SMART Goal Setting to define goals as objects of a person’s ambition or an aim at a desired result..
