“The unexamined life is not worth living” Socrates 

Sometimes have a good question unlocks the answer. I found these following questions helpful when I was trying to figure out what I wanted in my life. These are taken from various people through great conversations. Take some time to treat yourself with a little reflection, creating the path you desire. Your life will thank you. =)

1. Are you living your best life?

2. What does your best life look like?

3. Are you being your best self?

4. What does your best self look like?

5. When have you felt most alive? What were you doing? Who were you around?

6. Can you incorporate any of those activities or people into your current life?

7. Make a list of characteristics you admire in someone.

8. Highlight the top three you value.

9. What are steps you can take to make those characteristics a habit. Start with one characteristic, and go from there.

10. Make a list of your own values and next to those values make a question that when you answer it, you will know you are living that value. Example: I value integrity. Question: Am I proud of everything I did today? Example: I value showing appreciation. Question: Have I told someone a compliment to their face today? Example: I value being grateful. Question: what are five things to be grateful for today?

11. What is your purpose in life? Try to make a statement saying My purpose in life is to—– so that—-. Example My purpose in life is to strive towards living my best life, so that I can help others to do the same.

12. Where will I be in five years? Sit down and think about where you will be in five years. Divide a paper in four parts : Health/Wealth/Social/Career. Close your eyes and imagine all of these factors- a place where everything is possible.

After you have thought holistically about all of these factors, open your eyes and start writing down your thoughts, in the different sections.

Next- make a plan- If this is your five year dream, work backwards to see what you need to do in 4 years, 3 years, 2 years, 1 year, right now to reach where you would like to be in five years. Break down the large goal into small steps that you can do each day.

From Matt Corker http://www.mattcorker.com/blog/

“You are going to live the next five years of your life anyways, might as well live it working in the direction of your dreams.
Having a good life is not easy, it takes a lot of work, both mentally and physically. The other option is to be unsatisfied with your life. Thus, out of these options, let’s build up the strength and see how great your life can become.”

Later if you are a visual person (or just like arts and crafts) you can create a vision board of what you are moving towards as a reminder that this hard work is worth it. Put focus on the actions you are taking towards this dream, rather than believing that if I dream something it will happen. The habits you make today impact the destiny of your future.

In all this change, in all this improvement, please remember to be gentle. Try to avoid destroying yourself into perfection. Focus on loving yourself for who you are, and who you are becoming.

Best of luck on this grand adventure!
