We are halfway through the year. When was the last time you made time to ask yourself, am I going in the right direction? Today feels like the perfect time to ask you some of my favorite questions:
- How far along are you in reaching your goals and dreams?
- Are you excited about the rest of the year, or are you already thinking about 2019?
- Do you feel happy and excited about your life?
It’s fairly simple. You’re the only person in the world that knows what you want out of life.
There is no one out there like you. So, if mid-year you’re feeling lost, overwhelmed and anxious this might be a good time to take a moment and pause to figure out if you’re going in the right direction.
This pause can last for an hour, a day, a week, a month, etc., whatever seems right for you. When you decide to take time to pause and get grounded ask yourself the following questions:
- What does my dream life look like for me?
- What kind of relationships (romantic, family, friends, etc.) do I want?
- What do I envision for my work?
When you answer these questions, I challenge you to let go of any expectations society, your family and friends have on you.
Instead, I want you to listen to your inner voice and trust what it has to say. It’s important to trust your inner voice because you are the only person in the world that knows what makes you happy and what your dreams are.
If you tend to look for approval from others, it’s time to change the direction. What I mean by “change the direction” is for you to start to look for approval within. For example, Elon Musk, Oprah, etc. wouldn’t be where they are, if they looked for approval from others and didn’t listen to their inner voice.
So, take a moment to pause, get grounded and answer the above question. To an amazing 2018!
