Everyone is asked “What do you want to do with your life when you get older?”
Being a teenager, I am asked more questions based around “what I want” than I can count. Everyone seems to think that we have our lives planned out and that we can actually determine how things are going to go long term. When reality is, we really have no clue. I have a general idea of what I would like to happen, but I can promise you that almost all of us will end up doing something we never expected.
However, we can control what we want to achieve. I know that I will touch as many lives as I possibly can and influence others to live their life to the fullest. I can’t promise you how I’ll do it, but I know that it will happen because that is my end goal. I would love for me to be successful at achieving this goal through ScharpFitness but for all I know something could happen and I could end up with a completely different company and working with others. I want to get myself in the most optimal position to succeed, without sacrificing any morals.
I know that anything is possible, just gotta be able to work towards it. I find myself wanting things more than I am willing to work for it sometimes. Fighting that inner resistance is the toughest battle I face daily and I’m willing to bet that you also struggle with the same voice.
Here’s something that has helped me clearly define what I want.
- Write it out
- Make it real and write out your goals
- Reverse engineer those goals
- Gary Vee talks about reverse engineering. Working backwards, how are you going to get yourself in the position you want to be? What steps do you have to take?
- Get a daily devotional
- This dials me in every morning, it seems that whatever I need to hear on the particular day is what I read about.
Be willing to work for what you want, no one else will do it for you.
