If you’re feeling a bit lost or if you want to re-affirm your chosen life path, consider these 4 simple but powerful questions to help you reconnect with what life’s all about for you.
POWERFUL QUESTION 1
What did you dream of doing as a child?
Maybe you recognise a theme emerging; perhaps you still dream of such things now. Perhaps you can draw on the spirit of these dreams of the future.
POWERFUL QUESTION 2
What were you doing when you were feeling the most ‘you’?
Reflect on the essence of what you were doing, what your thoughts were at the time, what was around you and what else was happening in your life.
POWERFUL QUESTION 3
What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?
If you removed all uncertainty, tempered your fears, didn’t care about what other people might think and didn’t worry about how your dream ‘fitted’ with your history…
POWERFUL QUESTION 4
What would you like to look back on?
Imagining it is later on in your life, think about what things you would be proud to have done, what stories you would like to tell and what sort of life you would look back on and smile.
Once you have processed these questions, you may like to think about how you can apply your insights to your current life.
Often, when we are embarking on a change, it is easy to fall into the trap of focusing too much on the gap between where we are now and where we want to be and this can be overwhelming. Don’t beat yourself up! Think about all the great things about your work or life now, some of which you might be taking for granted. What fresh perspective can you put on things? What tweaks can you make in the short term to make things better?
Whatever you decide to do, enjoy the adventure!
