Do you know your life’s ambition?
You do? Great!
Are you fulfilling it?
It’s important to not only understand and comprehend your life’s ambition but to also continuously work towards fulfilling it. Easier said than done, right?
So, are you at that stage where you need to reignite your ambition? Need to find that spark again? Here’s our 7 tips to help you reignite your ambition:
1. Redefine your ambition
Start off by defining what YOUR ambition is. Don’t fall into the trap of basing your idea of ambition on other people’s perceptions or own ambitions. Don’t be persuaded or influenced to change who YOU are! Reflect and review your life’s ambition – you know what it is!
2. Where do you put your attention and how does it make you feel?
Alright. You’ve re-discovered your life’s ambition, so why so demotivated? The question to answer is “where do you put your attention?”. Where are you spending your time and energy that could be spent on achieving your life’s ambition? Are you okay with this? By having an understanding of where you’re placing your time, you can prioritise tasks and goals to best suit both your ambitions and your everyday life.
3. Take some time…
It’s amazing what escaping the grind of everyday life, even for a day or two, can do for you. Getaways are such an amazing way to find clarity in your life. It gives you a chance to not only explore and relax, but to reflect and really have the space and the time to think. Take this extra time to think about who you are, what you’re doing and where you want to go.
4. Recognise, acknowledge and thank yourself
Before you move forward, take a quick look back to see what you’ve done. Sure, you might be a little stuck in terms of your life’s ambition, but this doesn’t mean that you haven’t already progressed. Recognise the progress you’ve already made, no matter how little and thank yourself for it.
5. Remind yourself this is totally, completely normal
It’s not weird to stray. It’s usually when we find ourselves. It’s completely ordinary. The extraordinary change though is finding the path and continuing your journey.
6. Re-energised? Now time to reignite!
Goals, goals, goals! It’s all about goals! It’s time to review, rewrite and reorganise your goals. Remember to make them actionable, specific and exciting!
7. Remember, you’re in control!
IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU! Have you been in the passenger’s seat of your own life for too long? It’s time to get back behind the wheel and take control of your life and your future! The easiest thing to do is just start.
