Life happens once. There is no rewind button, no retake. Our quality of life has a lot to do with how we opt to actually live our life. There are two options: we can wait for life to happen or we can take steps to go towards it. There are amazing ways to motivate ourselves for life rather than waiting for opportunity to come to you. Too often we wait for life’s ship to come in. If we sit, wait, and hope that opportunities and experiences will simply come to us we miss out on what could have been if we just took the initiative to go forward rather than simply waiting.
Get motivated for life rather than waiting for opportunity to come to you…
Do you take steps to create opportunity? When was the last time you asked yourself exactly what you wanted now, six months from now and five years from now? Write it down. Repeat it to yourself out loud. Now, what are ways to make these things a reality? There are often more possibilities in front of us than we realize.
Here are a few ways to beef up on networking, learning and growing:
- Connect with a Social Media (Facebook, Instagram) Following / Group that is focused on your interests. This could be a community for welders, musicians, techies. Seriously, there’s a group for everything.
- If there are career, social or emotional interests that you would like to pursue network within your network. Who do you know that you can grab a cup of coffee with, chat on the phone or exchange emails that is in the area of expertise or interest that you’re potentially drawn to? There is crazy power in networking. Repeat after me, it cannot be overrated. Ask questions, ask questions, ask questions.
- Regroup. Take an inventory on a weekly, monthly and annual basis. What direction are you going? How are you making your desires and goals come to fruition? How do things possibly need to be adjusted? It’s ok to tweak things if needed. Life wasn’t intended to be static and remember, we’re human after all.
Getting motivated for life rather than waiting for opportunity to come to you can be scary
To take steps outside our comfort zone and not know where it may take us can be overwhelming. What makes it less anxiety ridden and frightening? When we prepare ourselves and utilize the above suggestions. Going at anything ill equipped and uneducated is foolish. Awareness, education and motivation can take you far. Don’t forget that.
You are worth it. You can do it. We have to believe in ourselves and seek insight and wisdom from those who have been there or are going in the direction we desire. Finding ways to live life to the fullest and with intent will knock your socks off. It will change you for the better.
Remember, we have one round in life. No redos. No retakes. Make it count. What are ways you intend on going towards your goals and desires? If you’re in a good place and motivated making things happen, what have you learned in the process? I’d love to hear some of your experiences and suggestions.
Life is a journey. How we opt to live it is up to us. That is a beautiful thing. Feel free to share where you are at or any questions you may have. I look forward to it! I wish you a week of true peace, love and goodness!
