Your life is a do-it-yourself project because the responsibility of working hard, planning, and living a successful and fulfilled life falls largely on you. This simply means that from this point forward, the burden of shaping your life is on your shoulders. The sooner you realize this, the better!
And I’ll be honest – this isn’t an easy feat when so many of our challenges could be blamed on so many external sources but you have to ask yourself at the end of the day, who is responsible once you become an adult?
And then you need to ask yourself: What can I do today, this week, this month, this year, to get my life going in the direction I desire?
I’ve been there, making excuses over and over again of why I can’t live my best life, and then it’s truly up to you to stop making excuses and be willing to do the work, to go all in so you can start living your best life today!
If you are either on the verge of giving up or are sick and tired of being mediocre, you can make a decision to start winning, by casting a YES vote in your favor today! You don’t have to continue being stuck in that rut or being hounded by feelings of being a failure of some kind!
Believe in yourself, you can make something of your life. You don’t give up until you get the results you want.
Your life is a do-it-yourself project and here are 5 questions to ask yourself:
What do you want to do with your life? This is probably one of the most important questions that you will ever answer. I often encounter people either not knowing the answer, skirting around the answer, or making excuses in the process of it all.
But when you have identified what you want to do with your life, it becomes the focal point of everything you plan to do. Knowing what you want to do, gives you clarity and a sense of purpose. It also prevents you from engaging in side-tracking, time-wasting ventures which have no connection to your purpose.
Kowing, why you want to achieve certain things in your life, is the motivation that will drive you to accomplish the goals that you have set for yourself.
Why do you want to achieve these goals you have set for yourself? Why do you want to lose weight? Why do you want to get married? Why do you want to start your own business? Why do you want to boost your self-esteem? The answers to these questions must be compelling enough to move you into action.
It’s time to tap into some hidden qualities because now it’s time to become the person that works to achieve your goal? Do you need to become more confident, committed, and action-oriented? Do you need to become a risk-taker? Do you need to be more assertive? Identify the qualities that you need to adopt in order for you to achieve your goals.
How are you going to manage your life as a project? How are you planning on achieving your objectives? Do you have a step-by-step plan? Certain tools need to be in place to help you tie together all the pieces of the project you plan to accomplish.
Having a plan is very important because it is the road map to your goal. It will help you know what information you require to make each phase of your life a success. For example, if you want to lose weight, how do you plan to lose it? If plan A fails what is plan B?
Every goal you set must have a deadline and any plan you have must cease from just being a plan, turn into action, and produce tangible results. When are you going to be done with at least one specific goal you have set out to accomplish? When are you going to wrap up the project?
Your life is a do-it-yourself project. If you want your plans to materialize, start taking action today!
