In this life, you cannot prosper or be truly stable without a plan. In this life, we can make choices. But often we abuse the ability to choose by not making any. Sometimes it can be daunting to select because it comes with consequences and accountability. But the only way to live a meaningful life is to have a plan that we can work with along the way in this journey we call life.
What do you want and need out of life?
Are you crystal clear about what you want in your education, career and personal life? Do you have clear boundaries with others, and are your values upheld and protected? Without knowing these things. Anything and anyone can come your way and give you an identity because you haven't created one.
Are you functioning from poverty or an abundant mindset?
What motivates you, is it fear or love? In this life, we don't do things without reason. What drives us is what controls us. You don't want your past experiences or people to manage your narrative and manifest in your life. You have to be self-aware in a profound way to have control over your mind.
Take baby steps today by asking yourself, what genuinely drives my actions in my life?
