What is your life plan? Are you just living your life without knowing where you’re going? Just wondering around not knowing what’s about to happen? I see so many people who see things in a negative way, they don’t really live they just exist. Starting to think about your life plan can be pretty uncomfortable. When I heard about it I didn’t want to listen, it made me feel as if it was to much. My life plan was going to work and take care of my son, that was it. And then I just settled with what I had. But what if you can do so much better?
How do I make a life plan?
Be alone in a quiet place. Think about what makes you happy. What makes you feel really good. A life plan can be about just anything from relationships to career. Simply how you want your life to be. It doesn’t have to be a plan you live by for the rest of your life because of course things do change. Think about where you want to be, or what you want to do. You have to be very clear about what it is you want. For me that was really difficult, because first of all I didn’t have the focus. If I saw a bird fly by I would watch that and start thinking about something else. Second, I was never really clear about what I wanted. For example, if I want a new car I just say that I want a car. That doesn’t say much. Same for career, if you want to do something else you have to be very clear about what it is you want to do and how much you want to make.
Think about things backwards
A good friend of mine taught me to think about it backwards. For example, I wanted to go to Las Vegas but wasn’t sure I would have the money to do so. So what did I have to do to get there. I saw myself going but what steps did I have to take to do it? And of course one thing was making money. How do I make money? That does work. So start building a plan and take it from there and you have a life plan. Can you even begin to imagine what a gift you would give to your kids if you followed a life plan? They don’t always do what you say they do what you do. And if you start early teaching them about a life plan nothing will be impossible and they will be so positive about the future.
