Know What You Want

There Is Nothing More Powerful
Than The Made-Up Mind.

This is so important that we want to say it again: There is nothing, absolutely nothing, more powerful than the made-up mind. When you make up your mind to do something and you believe completely in yourself, nothing can stop you. That being said, you can’t make up your mind if you don’t even know what you want.

If you don’t want to spend your life wandering aimlessly, you can use the following 7 tips to find out exactly what you want in life.

Be Selfish
How are you going to have time to figure out what you want if you are spending all your time getting other people what they want. You have to put yourself first. Ask yourself: If you weren’t tied down by your job, family, friends, or anything else, what would you be doing right now? Remember that it’s not a crime to put yourself first, because you are the only person who can.

Regret Nothing
Don’t feel bad for being selfish! You only have one life and it is up to you to live it the way you want to. If you constantly regret things you did or didn’t do in the past, then you won’t be able to move forward.

Figure Out What You Need
Sometimes we are so busy in the rush of daily life that it is hard for us to figure out what we need. Take time to sit down and think about what you need most. Is it your family, the freedom to express yourself, love, financial security, or something else? Think about the kind of legacy you want to leave behind.

Figure Out What Bothers You
You can soar only by pushing back against something you don’t want. Figure out what upsets you, and be specific about it. Don’t just say that you hate your office job. Pinpoint exactly why you hate it. Is it your micromanaging boss, your workload, your meaningless job title, or all of the above? What bothers you, and how can you fix it?

Pinpoint What Makes You Happy
Our happiness is the root of our desires, so take a few moments to really think about what makes you happy. Is it traveling, being around children, owning a successful business, your significant other, financial freedom? Once you figure out the one thing that makes you happiest, you’ll have a better idea of what you should strive for in your life.

Share Your Vision
If you tell people what you’re trying to accomplish, they will most likely support you and give you new ideas.

Stay Positive
Life doesn’t always go according to plan. Instead of freaking out, try your best to roll with the punches. You will get there someday. You’re just taking a little detour. Sometimes a positive attitude is all you need to keep going.

“It is the power of the mind to be unconquerable.” – Lucius Annaeus Seneca
