Are You Getting What You Want in Life?

 Are You Getting What You Want in Life?

We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving. And we all have some power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing. ~ Louisa May Alcott

Are you getting nowhere in life and you find emptiness all round? Do not complain and do not despair. Nobody owes you a living and you have to find your own way to live your life. Here are the steps you can take to lead a meaningful life:

1.      Know what you want in life: Look for your dreams and find your passion. There must be something in life that attracts you and inspire you. Not to worry about the journey ahead of you because according to Napoleon Hill, Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”  The most important thing is to ignite the fire in you to take action and make changes. Since five years ago in 2007, I found out I have wanted to be a blogger / writer and I have not given up my dream.  With each passing day my passion for blogging grows stronger.

Nothing happens unless first we dream. ~ Carl Sandburg

2.      Focus: Write down the one important goal in your life. Look at it every day so that you will stay focused and not get distracted. Your goal will remind you constantly what you need to do to realize your dreams. You will find happiness, satisfaction and fulfillment when you think and work on your goal.

3.      Build confidence: When you pay attention to your work, you will avoid worrying about the future or allowing the past to haunt you. Doing the right things will promote your self-esteem and build self-confidence. The key to success is your positive thoughts that you can do it to get what you want in life. 

Let go of the past and go for the future. Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you imagined. ~ Henry David Thoreau

4.      Working on it every day: Success is hard work. You know what to do and you just got to do it every day with concentration. It should not be a problem because your passion, focus and confidence will excite you every morning when you wake up.  I write an article a day and it has become a habit of mine.

5.      Challenge setbacks in life positively: Life can be challenging and exciting. React to negative events with a positive frame of mind. Be creative and think of ways to overcome obstacles. 

6.      Congratulate yourself for each step of your success: It is a slow process for me in blogging, but with each small victory and success I am motivated to carry on with much enthusiasm. You do the same with what you do. Measure your performance and be delighted when you are on the right track and making progress.

7.      Keep learning and be skillful: I started blogging with no knowledge of the Internet because I am a baby boomer. It does not deter me from going after what I want to do. I just learn and learn and I get better with each passing day because I am willing to learn continuously. 

A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams. ~ John Barrymore

8.      Looking forward in life with hope, determination and perseverance: When there is something to look forward to in life, there is hope. The way to go forward in life is to live with determination and perseverance to achieve your dreams.

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. ~Harriet Tubman
