In my previous post I talked about knowing your mission and setting your goals along the way. In case you have missed that post “ever thought about your goals in life?” click here.
Now it is about making decisions in order to achieve your goals. Having smaller and achievable goals which all lead you to your big achievement in the end helps you to stay motivated. Set yourself up for challenges, something you always wanted to do but you cannot find the time or you are getting scared and put things on hold for later. Remember, later may be too late, life is short.
Don’t put things off and don’t get lost in your busy daily schedule. Make time and don’t be scared. Get out of your comfort zone and just do it. Trust your instinct and don’t worry about what others think.
When I made my decision to move to Australia 8 years ago, I went through times where I was excited and scared at the same time. You ask yourself questions like: what will happen, what would happen if I stay etc. It is the uncertainty and the fear which makes us looking for excuses and to put things off. For me I just trusted my instinct and here I am in Australia for 8 years now. I definitely got out of my comfort zone, left my home country, left friends and family behind to live on the other side of the globe. Doing so, you learn a lot about yourself and I do not regret my decision at all. It actually feels good once you got out of your normal routine and followed your dream.
When working towards our goals we most likely will encounter obstacles in life. However, instead of getting frustrated with it, see it as lessons to learn to become a stronger and better you.
Most of you will know the feeling of hiking in the mountains. The top of the mountain is your goal and the way is the journey of your life, going through ups and downs, you will experience rain, wind but also sunshine. Once you have been through all this and you reached the top, you feel amazing and happy.
Climb the mountains to reach the top of your life
This photo has been taken in Fitzroy National Park, Patagonia in Argentina. We started early in the morning, it was cold, windy at some stages, then hot and back to being cold; by the way that is normal weather in Patagonia. One hour before you reach the top, it was hot and sunny. That part of the hike was pretty steep but once you reached the glacier lake and you actually could see the beautiful Fitzroy mountain range, you forget about everything and you cannot believe that you actually made it.
Go and follow your dreams, get out of your comfort zone and live in happiness.
Wishing you a happy day.
