Most people donít uncover what they want in life until itís time to die Ė and thatís a shame.
Some people spend the greatest years of their lives starring at the television or doing things they dislike. An author described humanity by saying, ďMost people die at twenty and are buried at eighty.Ē Are you one of the living dead?
What do you really want in life?
Some people struggle in answering such question. When asked what they want or what their goals in life are, most are unclear. They flip flop in their decision, barely giving any thought about what they want in life. People who don't have definite goals are allowing time pass them by. Are you one of these people?
If you are unclear about what you want out of life, do not fret.† There are many ways of finding your purpose in life.
To discover what you desire in life, try looking deep into your heart. Oftentimes, people are ruled by logic. People live by what they think they should be or by what others like them to be. The discovery process is the perfect time to listen to your heart. What your heart desires comes from the whispers of your true self. Your authentic self is the real you.†
Be attentive to your heart to be able to listen to your authentic self. What your heart says generally feels right. What your heart wants is what you usually love to do and this shows you your passion. Anything done with passion is like play where the task is completed without hesitation. You give up your absolute best and feel no pressure or resistance.
You will absolutely enjoy doing things that are your passion. Setbacks, difficulties, and obstacles will make it more challenging, but should not stop you from pursuing your goals. Naturally, there may be obstacles that may prevent you from obtaining your goal, but your heartís desire will find ways to get over these walls so that you may eventually get what you want in life. Remember this: the universe helps people who are going after their passion and those who are pursuing their destiny.
However,But, this does not mean that you forget to use your head. People are born with both the mind and heart. Your objective is to live your ultimate life and be in harmony with your head and heart. The poet Rumi wisely said, ďLive completely in the head and you cannot feel the breath and rhythm of life. Live completely in the heart and you may find yourself acting like a love-struck fool with poor judgment and discipline. Itís all a fine balance - the head and heart must forge a lifetime partnership if one wants to live a beautiful life.Ē†
Be attentive to your intuition. Part of human nature is the mysterious and spontaneous reaction on things. Quite often these are referred to as instincts. Your authentic self talks with you and guides you via instincts. Instincts are those gentle nudges that urge you to act and follow a certain path. Your job then is to listen closely.
Many times, we listen to what people say and allow them to run our lives. Parents often do this to their kids. ďWe come from a family of doctors, so my son must also be a doctor.Ē How often do we hear this from parents who have the best intentions for their children? Parents unconsciously block the true expression of their childís true self and calling. Friends and nay sayers will knock you down and emphasize the impossibility of your dream. Before heeding their advice, evaluate the accomplishments of the critics. Did they reach their dreams? Do they dream big at all?
Remember, it is your destiny that is in the balance not theirs. It doesnít mean, though, that you will not pay attetion to what other people say. Hear them out just the same. But the final decision should be yours.
There is only one thing to remember: Each person, to live truly and greatly, must define how he wants to live and what his brightest life will look like.† Listen to your instincts and follow your heartís desire. You can't go wrong.
