Do you know what you want in life?

I have talked about having a life vision, where you want to go, what you want to be and so on. Often people think they have them and in a matter of speaking, they are correct.

However, when an individual is asked to write down any of these in detail, they often struggle. For example, the person could say “I want to be rich”, “I want to have a house” and so on. Again, this would be correct. The challenge comes because there is no clarity. Rich? What does being rich mean to you? Having a million dollar in the bank? 10 million? How do you know you have become rich? Rich can mean many different things and unless we put an actual number, rich is a very vague concept, so it is a very vague goal.

And we could do the same with the house or the career/job they want to have. We are likely to have similar outcomes. Furthermore, often people does not even have an idea or plan on how to achieve their goals. Again, vague ideas will come, like I will get a good job… What is a good job? Doing what? Where? Being a cook in a fast food restaurant will likely get you the minimum wage, while working as a cook in a five star hotel would be a totally different story.

What many people misses is that to be able to reach/achieve a goal, you must have a clear understanding on what that goal is. Once you have this clearly defined goal, you must have a clear idea/plan on how to achieve it (what needs to be done, how to do it, where and how long it will take for starters).

So my question to you:

  • Do you know what you want in life?
  • What do you need to do to get it?
  • When will you know you got it?
  • How would you know you are going the right path?
  • How long it is going to take you to get it?
