Wouldn’t you like to be excited for the future?
Most people have no plan for their future. This is proven by the sheer number of people who don’t achieve their goals. And also by the alarming statistics about retirement savings.
So why is it such a difficult task to map out a strategy for our own success? Is it because thinking about our future requires us to examine and re-evaluate our life’s decisions? Admitting we were wrong and made some mistakes, which we all hate doing! Both on a conscious and subconscious level.
Cognitive Dissonance is another major reason we don’t achieve our goals. But as cliche as it may sound, it’s facing these uncomfortable moments that help us grow the most. Some of life’s more enjoyable moments in-fact, helping us truly feel alive.
The benefits of having a plan far outweigh the consequences of not having one, achieving our goals is very liberating, motivating, and uplifting.
What is a plan?
The dictionary describes it as: “
First your plan has to start with a vision , clarifying what it is you really want, what do you want to do, who do you want to become, who do you want by your side? This breathes life and inspiration into your plan.
From here it’s crucial of-course, that you believe accomplishing your goals is possible. This is yet another way, creating a logical, step by step plan of action, helps achieve results. No longer such an abstract concept.
Just remember; it’s trial and correction not trial an error. It may take numerous attempts to achieve success, this is an inevitable part of the process. If anyone on the planet, historically or currently, has ever succeeded on their first try; they probably sold their soul, and who really wants eternal suffering? Remember; “Failure inspires winners and defeats losers”.
