How strong is the power of direction? How can a purpose change your life? Does goal give a sense of living to your life?
When I was younger and I had no direction, I remember getting up everyday late, play video games, surf in the computer, or cruise in my car. My life had no meaning. I spend a lot of time washing my car, talking to my friends and really doing nothing productive. Being unable to walk for at least 4 weeks it reminded me of this.
There is no meaning in life without a purpose. Many of us wake up just living and doing, many times because we have responsibilities and many other times because we are looking just for pleasures. This is why many of us can’t find our happiness.
Having a purpose and setting up goals to see my life is changing, how I am helping to change other’s people’s life, and how I can improve the world, give me all the motivation and passion to continue moving forward. Life make sense.
Now I understand how many people who created are very happy of their creation not because the creation itself but because of what the creation is doing to help others.
Setting goals give excitement to life, getting out of the comfort zone and do something different every time. Life becomes boring doing the same routine without excitement to look for. This is one of the reasons why many people choose to travel, go to vacation, spend weekends out their town, go party and try something new. And there is nothing wrong with it. However, I find it more fulfilling to risk my sense of security and continue moving forward by creating. I have some level of fulfillment when I challenge myself to get out of my comfort zone. It is rewarding looking back and see what that challenge has made me.
Goal setting plays a hue role here because I write and go back to my goals every week to find out what I have achieved and what I have not and why. Is it my fault? I am procrastinating? Do I am waiting for someone else’s decision? Is it the capital? I can’t seem to get the resources? Is it not the right time? I am too busy with other projects? Why I have not achieve my goals.
I have been waking up (if I sleep) for four weeks thinking about my limitations, thinking about who I used to be and how I used to waste time. Not having anything to aim for make my day depressing. The truth is that having a purpose gives me the courage to just go day by day and knowing that one day I will be charging towards my goals.
If you are in the same situation I was, I don’t blame you. I needed to suffer before I could find my purpose. Many people tried to tell me about how I could live my life, but I ignore everyone. What they know about my life? However, my goal here is only to help you spark your life by making your days more exciting and start reaching for your dreams. It is important to know that you can achieve your dreams no matter the age, gender, race, religion and others.
The power of purpose, goal setting and the sense of direction will give you the desire to wake up to continue living everyday with excitement.
