Most people want to achieve things because they think it will make them happy. But what if there was a different way to look at things? What if you could achieve anything you want by understanding and fulfilling your purpose?
Simon Sinek says that "people don't buy what you do, they buy why you do it." And he's right! When you understand your "why," everything else falls into place.
So how do you figure out your "why?" It starts with understanding yourself. What are your passions? What makes you happy? What drives you? Once you know these things, you can start to align your career goals with your passions and begin working towards a life that you love.
So how do you go about understanding yourself?
The first step is to start paying attention to your gut feeling. Your intuition is a powerful tool, so learn to trust it. When faced with a decision, ask yourself what feels right for you. If something feels off, it probably isn't the right choice for you.
The second step is to start keeping a journal. Write down your thoughts and feelings, both good and bad. This will help you get a better understanding of yourself and how you react under different circumstances.
The third step is to get feedback from others. Ask your family and friends what they think your strengths and weaknesses are. They may see things that you don't, so it's important to listen to their feedback.
Once you have a good understanding of yourself, it's time to start creating a plan that will help you reach your goals. Start by setting realistic goals and then create a roadmap that will help get you there. And most importantly, don't be afraid to change course if something isn't working for you. The most successful people are the ones who are willing to adapt and change with the times. So don't be afraid to experiment and find what works best for you.
Remember, the key to creating the life and career you want is understanding yourself. So take the time to learn about who you are and what makes you happy. Then use that information to create a plan that will help get you where you want to be.
