It’s Simple. Here’s How to Create Yours…
Sit down, put pen to paper, and write out your future based on this ideal:
If I could really go for it and things go well, what would my life look like?
Then, get specific. Talk about where you’ll be, what you’ll be doing, the feelings you’ll have, what others who are close to you will be doing.
What you want to do is create a target for where you want to end up. Don’t feel like you’re setting the next 20 years in stone. Your vision can always change. The important part is to have something to aspire to.
I created my 20-year vision in 2015, and I just achieved one of the goals… moving from California to a high-rise in either NYC, Seattle, or Dallas. I’m writing this looking out over the stunning Dallas skyline from our new place!
Now that’s fulfilling!
Are You Driving with No Destination in Mind?
Here’s the alternative… If you never create aspirations or that “target” I spoke of, life moves quickly and has a way of passing you by without ever having “gone for it” – with “it” being whatever it is you want out of life.
You also miss out on the daily motivation of having something that you’re working toward. Mornings feel a lot different when you know exactly where you’re headed vs. waking up to just slog through another day.
