Life is not the passing of time but what you do in that time. Although we do not like thinking about it, the truth is that we live on earth for an undefined period. Some live longer than others, but the fact is, it’s not how long you live, but it’s what you do with the time that you are alive. Often we find ourselves depressed and stressed because we are not maximizing our potential.
Living to your full potential is not about what other people say or what is acceptable by the community. Still, it is what you feel inside, and that drive that wakes you up every morning. In actual fact, it’s about setting your own goals and boundaries and becoming the best version of yourself. Below are three guides that I feel can help you to live to your full potential.
Finding your Purpose
Everyone is unique and has a special gift hidden inside of them that no one can take away. No one can do things the way you can. Everyone was created for a purpose, and no one can fulfil that purpose except you. Finding your purpose is very important because it guides in decision making and helps you in setting goals.
When one finds their purpose on earth, this gives them peace of mind and inner joy. Your purpose is that one thing that you were created to accomplish on earth and if you don’t, no one can hence finding your purpose and channelling your energy into achieving your purpose is of paramount importance for your inner peace.
Set your goals
Achieving goals that you set for yourself in life gives you joy, but at times it can be overwhelming. The best way to embark on the bigger goals in life is to break them down into small attainable goals (SMART). Each passing day ensures that you take a step towards achieving your goals. When you set your goals immerse yourself wholly into achieving them, you have to do all it takes to accomplish your goals in life. When achieving your goals becomes overwhelming, take a step back and look for the right next move that can help you attain your goals.
Live in the moment
The pressures of life can be a slap in the face giving you a rude awakening to the many things that demand your attention, but one has to realize that they can’t juggle all the life problems at once. With each passing day, you draw closer to your grave, so one has to enjoy the ride of life. Things might not always be okay, and you can’t wait for life to deal you a better deck hence enjoy the little nicks that life throws at you.
When you are at work be at work and when you are home at home, live in the moment and make sure that you enjoy every second, minute, hour and day because they will never be any other day like today. Live your life with no regrets and live your life as if it were your last day on earth. People tend to regret what they did not do and not what they did so learn to do the things that you love the most and do them now.
