Consider your life story today. Is it where you want it to be? Think in terms of your relationships, your habits, your finances, your spiritual welfare, your work. All these things affect on the individual you see yourself as being and the direction your life story path is taking.
Remember, if you don’t take charge of your life story, somebody or something else will take charge of it for you. As youngsters we were frequently asked the question “what do you wish to be when you grow up,” teens dream about their perfect relationship and young adults plan their next overseas holidays. Many individuals take a course because it looks intriguing, or make resolutions at the beginning of each New Year and wonder why they find it hard to complete the course or to stick to the resolutions.
As maturing adults, we need to recapture that desire to recapture that ability to ask ourselves questions about our life story, and dream about creating the best relationships and plan for those special trips and moments in our life story.
Why not take a life inventory and write down every area of your life story that is crucial to you.
Search the internet, make enquiries to local community groups and look in your local library, for opportunities to develop new skills or new knowledge in those arenas you want to grow in. Ask yourself these questions…
• What are my goals and dreams?
• How do my goals and dreams fit into the circumstances of my life story at this moment?
• What arenas do I need training in to accomplish my goals?
• Who will be the best source of advice to take control of arenas that are out of control now?
• Where might I discover resources to help me accomplish my goals and if I might discover any myself?
• Where might I go to discover the information I need in order to start my progress towards achieving them?
• What things in my life story need to change so I have time to accomplish my goals?
• What attitudes in my life story need to change so I have the intention to accomplish my goals?
• With whom might I share these goals with so that I have someone to be my cheerleader as I embrace my goals?
Each of these questions helps you to prepare insights into yourself and your ambitions and goals and to create a practical ways to work towards achieving them and embracing the life story you want for yourself and your family.
