This year has been a trying year for a lot of people.
Those that went into it without a vision and clarity of what they wanted have either been derailed or are now sitting on the sidelines waiting for the year to end.
I am here to tell you that, you should really have a clear vision of what you hope to achieve and what difference you want to make in the world.
I believe, we are here to live, learn and contribute.
When you learn all you can about this world, you live the best version of life you possibly can and eventually you will be in a position to contribute to others.
When others can look up to you as a role model, you give them strength and hope to be, do and have a happier existence.
But clarity is of utmost importance. You have to be crystal clear about where you are headed and the kind of impact, difference and goals you want to achieve.
When you feel unclear about a goal, you have difficulty achieving it. And if you don’t know why you should do something, you lack the commitment to taking action.
Your direction defines what you do every day.
Clarifying not only your purpose but your direction reinforces your ultimate life purpose.
You should have a clear understanding of what you want next month, next quarter or next year to look like.
This is why in your car, the windshield is much more bigger than the rear view mirror.
You need to have a clear vision of where it is you are headed to.
There is one quality that one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it.
People who are constantly striving to achieve something meaningful in life crave clarity.
It’s the only way to reach deeper into yourself to find out what makes you come alive.
We all start from somewhere confusing, because you probably like to do a lot of things. But once you define your purpose, you will become unstoppable.
Successful people have a definite sense of direction.
They have a clear understanding of what success means to them.
Everything they do is consistent with their goals. They look forward and decide where they want to be. Their day to day actions help them move closer to their vision.
Once you find your why, you will be more careful and selective about your daily actions.
Great visions aren’t hard to think up; committing to them and carrying them out is the problem!
Without a purpose, it’s easy to pursue things that you “think you should be doing”.
It’s not your fault, what most people find when they look inside themselves is:
Confusion: this manifests as not setting clear priorities because the path ahead doesn’t look clear and decisive.
Distraction: this manifests as a hundred small things that pull your attention this way and that.
Disorganisation: this manifests as a lack of orderly thinking that leads to productive results.
Most people’s lives are still not perfectly clear.
It’s a struggle almost every adult goes through.
“What do I want to do with my life?”
“What do I not suck at?”
Millions of people have no clue what they want to do with themselves.
And that’s okay.
No assessment is going to provide you with immediate clarity and sense of purpose.
Seeking clarity in uncertain times can be a daunting experience, and it can be very stressful if the solutions you seek don’t appear when you need them.
Clarity of purpose challenges you to do better and commit to actions that get you closer to the one thing you really want in life.
With clarity, you can pull together resources, ideas and people for a common cause.
Without it, there is wasted effort and even chaos.
The key is to do more of what you enjoy and brings out the very best in you and you will continually clarify what it is that you want to do, be and have in life.
Clarify your purpose… then add some creativity and see what happens.
