Today I’ll discuss the importance of vision and keeping your goals very clearly defined.
As cliche as it sounds, your only limitations are the ones you place on yourself. Everyone around you is going to have their own opinions and judgments. All the time. But are you going to let others dictate the direction of your life? I surely will not. Therefore, the only real limits you have in your life on where you can take yourself are placed there by your own mind. Remove those limitations. “I could never achieve that”; “they got lucky”; “that’s beyond my limitations”. It’s all bulls**t. Excuse the language. But it is. Every person that has achieved something in life simply figured out the steps necessary to get there, and took them.
Discipline is a huge factor in the big picture. I’ll reference Darren Hardy’s The Compound Effect . Your success will not some from one single monumental action. It comes from the accumulation of all the small, seemingly-insignificant actions on a daily basis.
Back to vision: you need to clearly visualize what it is you want to achieve. Otherwise, you won’t know if your actions correspond to those goals. Create a vision board. Make each and every goal of yours as clearly defined as possible. Describe sights, smells, feelings, and emotions. Only then will you begin to subconsciously and consciously align your actions with those goals you are to achieve. You do this, and I guarantee, your goals will manifest themselves into your reality. The universe around us is full of energy and the universe itself is very aware. You put what you want into the universe, and circumstance will shape around your desires. Sounds far-fetched, but ask any ultra-successful man or woman. They’ll all give you a similar answer that all point back to very clearly defining what it is you want to achieve.
Envision it, clearly define it, and keep it in front of you every day.
Whelp, here we go. Everything is going super smoothly! New home, new friends, new job. All is swell!
I’ve been reflecting on quite a bit recently regarding life and motivation. I’ve felt spurts of loss of motivation. And I can clearly pinpoint what it is. I keep forgetting my reasoning for my actions. My family is such a big motivator for why I do what I do. Yet, with this recent move, I am extremely far from them physically. Without them close by, my focus is easily muddied and I get distracted with the goings-on of every day life here.
My planning and organization skills are on point. What has been suffering is my discipline to execute. I keep doing other things to convince myself that I’m being productive, while I’m actually wasting time.
Carpe Omnia, my friends. Seize it all.
In order to do this, I must remind myself EVERY SINGLE DAY that our days are numbered. The only thing that it 100% certain in this life is that we all live and die. It may sound depressing when phrased as such, but honestly, it needs to be harnessed as a reminder to make the most of every moment of every minute of every hour of every day of every week of every month of every year of every decade.
Those are my words of wisdom for the day. Thanks for joining me on this adventure!
Woah, crazy few weeks. The move was wild, as expected.
INCEPTION. The mind is an amazing, wild, and crazy thing. Science today can’t even explain 1% of how the brain works and why it functions the way it does. In rewatching the Christopher Nolan film, it was reiterated how much control the mind has. The sci-fi fiction flick explores the depths and power of human thought, and this got me contemplating how important it is to be able to harness that power in my every day life to push my limits and perceived boundaries.
Just a thought 😉 Think it over.
Hi there, everyone! Such a crazy few days since the job opportunity came up. I’ve been working really hard to figure out the logistics, and a few things are more difficult than expected. The apartment situation specifically is giving some trouble. Just can’t find a place I like! I’ve seen a few affordable 3-4 bedroom apartments, but I’d prefer something with less people. I have a lot to focus on right now and want to keep distractions to a minimum.
Anyways, wanted to discuss my health with ya’ll. I’ve made a conscious decision to get the most out of this transition as possible. It’s a big change, and I feel like I can utilize it to spur many other positive changes in my life. My health and fitness is one. I’d like to get my fitness level back to what it was when I was in college. Work has caused me to neglect my body. I haven’t been cooking much for obvious reasons, but I’m determined to make some big changes along with the move.
Glad to have you guys along for the ride!
