Have you ever felt lost in your life, wondering what you want to do with it. Well, I may not be a perfectionist at it, but, I have taken strides to finding out what I don’t want and want, and that has helped me figure out tomorrow.
STEP 1: Identify Your World of Today
Yes, I said it. Your world of today matters on who you will become tomorrow from this point moving forward. Tell yourself you want to change, that you want to make a difference, come up with a game plan and put it into action. Identify your world today means to identify your likes and dislikes. What can you change right now sitting at your computer reading this, and how will it change your life tomorrow? Then, identify your problem areas, the more difficult ones that may take time.
STEP 2: Get Rid of all the non-sense
By saying this, I’m speaking about the background noise, issues that may cause you trouble, the issues that may keep you from obtaining your goals. If you have shitty friends, get rid of them, don’t answer their calls, don’t reply to their texts. Move on, and if they ask what you’re doing and why you haven’t responded. Reply to them that you have been busy. That’s all they need to know. Another thing, get rid of that shitty job and get one that you can tolerate until you get to where you need to be. Don’t hinder yourself anymore. Because TIME, we can NEVER get back. Time is of the essence. So why waste your time on people or things that aren’t going to be positives in your life, in your movement.
STEP 3: RESEARCH AND PLAN
Just so you aren’t going out into the world blind, do your research. If you plan on going to school, research what you might want to study. Remember, while you’re researching your potential major, you can at least knock out some of those General Ed courses. No need to rush into a major. If you plan on moving, research the area, the job prospects, or potential to open your own business. On top of that, research what kind of area, crime rates, etc. All of that is important just in case you plan on starting a family. Research every possible avenue. But try to keep it within 48 hours. If you want to go to school, sign up now and plan for next semester, knock out your general ed courses first if you still can’t figure it out, you’ll still have a few months before they really start asking what you want to graduate with.
STEP 4: STOP MAKING EXCUSES
STOP! STOP! STOP! Let’s get it together, stop making excuses as to why you can’t. Yes, you can. There are so many options in the world to help you on your journey. Face yourself in the mirror and just admit the fucking truth, you’re lazy. I face the truth, I’m too lazy and tired to fucking exercise. That’s why I’m probably going to take a P.E course next semester to get my ass back on track. Sometimes we need a good ass kicking. Maybe you need a good ass kicking. If that’s the case, sign up for school with the intent to succeed, because teachers and all there homework will certainly motivate you. Or choose a job that will not coddle you, but challenge you.
STEP 5: EXECUTE
Now, assuming that you have your wants and needs outlines, and you have a solid plan, execute it. Do not divert from the plan, do not veer left, do not veer right. You may stumble a few times, but stay the course. Execute the plan to the fullest extent. You will meet others on your journey who will motivate you. Your friends of the past, are probably friends of that past for a reason. Don’t hesitate to make new friends, acquaintances, peers, etc. Shake those hands and make new connections, develop new relationships. Stop wasting your time. Life is too damn short for us to be sitting on our asses not getting anything done.
