Do You Know What You Really Want in Life?

Do you tend to act or react in your life?

Do you usually move away from what you do not want or do you move towards what you want?

Do you know where you are heading? What is your compass on the way?

You can arrive in a destination only if you know what is that destination. Of course there is beauty in spontaneous free wandering, and you will surely get to see and experience wonderful things. However.. when it comes to life..

If you want to build the life of your dreams, you do need to get clear about what would that look like for you. Building sustainable happiness and success on your own terms requires holding a vision and taking intentional and inspired action.

Once you know where you are heading, you can create your own path towards it. Following your heart and being inspired by your dreams will work like the compass you need. At any moment, when in doubt, you can connect to your inner wisdom, you can validate your action and direction in the context of your bigger dream. And of course, your future vision will always be growing and changing in harmony with you.

What to do in case you do not know what you actually want?

Developing the habit of self-reflection and creating space for re-connecting with your deepest self is the way to go.

  • Take time to gain clarity about where you are now, where you want to go and what is that gap you need to bridge.
  • Explore further your core values, your sense of meaning and purpose.
  • Create space for dreaming and dwelling in possibilities — let your imagination flow. (If everything would be possible for you, what would you choose for you?)
  • Imagine yourself in 5 years time, 10 years time (and so on ) — Who are you? Where are you? What experiences are there?

I guess we all know by now that energy flows where your attention and intention goes. The more clarity you have about where you are heading, the calmer and happier you will feel in on your journey. If you trust the vision you have built for your life, magic happens.

There is great power in inspired intentional living!
