Tips For Finding The Right Goals

Tips For Finding The Right Goals
  • Listen to your discontent. It tells you when something is wrong. And that could be the thing you need to correct.
  • Combine it with something that inspires you to create change. Find something you truly believe in, because the process won’t always be fun and easy.
  • If you want a meaningful life, you have to do new things and fear inevitably comes with that.
  • List and estimate what’s necessary to achieve your goals.
  • Divide your goals into smaller ones and address them one at a time. This gives you a better sense of progress and it keeps you motivated.

"Embracing new things often requires us to embrace our fears, however trivial they may seem. You deal with fear not by pretending it doesn’t exist, but by refusing to give it decision-making authority."

If the goal is meaningful, it will transform you. You’ll be more confident, mature, capable of seeing even bigger adventures, and empowered to pursue them.

A quest might end better than we imagine or disastrously. Either way, there’s always another adventure if we’re willing to pursue it.
