Hello and welcome to my blog!
Are you doing what you want!
How are you doing it? Are you doing what you want to do? Is your job really what you wanted? Do you spend your leisure time with things that make you happy? Do you live the life you really want?
In order to do what you want to do, you have to know what you want. Unfortunately, many people do not know that exactly. If we belong to this group, we do things because we are supposed to do this because it is "our duty". After all, "sense of duty" is viewed positively up to this day. Or we do what others expect from us? This gives us at least the sublime feeling of not being an egoist. Sometimes we also do it because we hope for a little recognition, affection or even love in return.
People who do not know exactly what they want, often do things because they have "have always done it this way". There is also the beautiful word "tradition", which to some extend, is considered values and to which a sense of stability is inherited. However, these "traditions" have always hindered the progress and development of mankind. To follow old habits stops you from thinking and making the decisions about what you really want in life.
On the other hand, people usually know the answer to what they do not want. But only knowing what someone does not want does not get anyone further. If we let ourselves be guided by what we do not want, we live in constant fear that events will happen which we do not want to happen. This means nothing else but living a life on the run. My goodness, how stressful!
The joke is that the refugee also needs to know where he wants to flee. It is not enough to only want to get away! The direction must be determined. People from crisis regions in the Middle East are fleeing to Europe at high risk. Mexicans, who live in poverty flee across the border to the neighbouring United States. People in our surroundings flee from alleged hopelessness into drugs or alcohol. Frustrated spouses flee to lovers and the wealthy flee from tax authorities to tax havens. But there is one thing that all have in common: even the fugitives must know the direction in which they want to go.
Is it not much more meaningful to undergo the effort to think about what you really want? Try to find a few hours or maybe a whole weekend in a quiet corner of your house or on a bench in the forest with a lot of paper and a pen and answer the following questions:
How, where and with whom do I want to spend the rest of my life?
What kind of activity do I really enjoy?
How much money do I want to earn and own?
What things and people or animals do I want to surround myself with?
What would I want to have done at least once in my life?
Which countries, cities and regions do I want to see?
What business goal do I want to achieve?
Give yourself these hours of reorientation - maybe they will be the most valuable for you in years.
I wish you all the best!
