Living With Purpose

Purpose gives you focus.  Give yourself a positive vision and base your life around achieving it.  This will keep you from getting sidetracked by the distractions that might be fun or seem important in the moment but will waste your time without having any meaningful consequence to your life.

Do your soul-searching. Make lists of what you like and what you dislike; what you value and what you don’t; what you’re skilled at and what you’re not. Start cohering to an idea of who you fundamentally are, but allow yourself to be open to that idea changing over time.

Be Disciplined

Set your short and long-term goals (financial, physical, mental) and then adhere to a schedule of constructive habits that will lead you to reach those goals.  Most people are unwilling to give up an in-the-moment good time for the sake of a better state of being in the future, and by doing this, ten years from now you’ll be looking over your shoulder at those self-indulgent weaklings.

When you live in a society that constantly bombards you with ways to spend your hard-earned money, it can be tricky to distinguish what things are essential and what is just for enjoyment.  Not that you need to live like a Spartan, but stepping back and controlling your wants will go a long way towards keeping yourself out of debt and putting yourself way ahead of the back down the road.
