It doesn’t mean you should just stand up and storm out of your workplace and throw your career in the trash, but you could be aligning your priorities to make some space and time for what you truly love doing.
Take a deep breath in solitude at home or your local park to give you mind more room to inspiration, deep silent inner thought will be the best of counselors.
- Determine What you Want
Ok so you are inspired by the hunches and gut feelings from listening to your heart and now you’ve got an idea of what makes it beat passionately.
You are opening yourself to your inner desires and yet, there are a couple of things I believe you can specifically do to give a body and a name to those ideas:
Ask and answer yourself the big question: What is it that I want the most?
Write what you’re picturing yourself doing or being by the time you have achieved it.
Set a specific time goal, experts recommend to place 5 year-long terms.
Write smaller chewable time-frame tasks to complete the bigger goal.
- Keep Sight on The Bigger Picture
It is sometimes hard to remain focused on your personal goals when problems arise, bills show up and no instant or short-term rewards or gratification seem reachable or possible.
However you must remind yourself of the bigger picture, that’s what your written list is for, leave it on easy reach or sight so you can read it again and remind you why you are making this extra effort.
You can indulge yourself with some sort of reward in order to help you relief the stress, like a trip to your favorite resort, buy yourself your most liked coffee and dessert, or allow yourself a couple of days of rest from your daily tasks to regain focus and energy.
Whatever works for you is alright as long as you keep pursuing your ultimate goal.
- Keep your Head Clear
Similarly to the tips above, you can find inspiration and pursue a positive thinking state you’ll need for the completion of your daily endeavors.
Remaining clear-headed is a must to get even the smaller tasks done, if you find yourself in negativism you won’t get it any easy to have a reason good enough to keep pushing further.
Meditation and quiet alone time is highly recommended on your routine as much as a daily dose of positive affirmations, remember that you become your thoughts, positive or negative, so focus on the former, read this great article about positive affirmations.
- Believe in Yourself
Because if you don’t no one will, even if your family or friends give you their unconditional support, you won’t get anywhere and worst yet, even discourage them of believing in and supporting you and your dreams.
Positivism and negativism is contagious, you’ll get out what you put in as return.
