If you can finding life-purpose is as easy as seeing it in your mind. If you can visualize it, you can change your future.
Start by taking a moment and visualize clearly one thing in your life you are not completely happy with. There is nothing you can do to change what has happened in the past but clearly understanding the problem and tweaking it can produce powerful results.
Thinking positively leads you to look at the best case scenario.Â Instead of saying to yourself, "This situation feels hopeless, nothing good ever happens to me," train yourself to say, "This situation is not the best it could be. How could I improve on this situation?"
Looking at things this way takes your focus off of things you can't change and puts it back on things you can change.
Visualize why you aren't happy but don't wallow in it too long, just picture it in your mind.Â Now, switch the picture to the situation the way you want it to be.
Imagine the best conclusion to this story in your life. Imagine how you want to be, how you want to feel.Â Then ask yourself, what are the steps I could take to achieve that?
For example, I used to work three dead end jobs just to pay the bills. Of course, the hours were long and time spent commuting was not bringing me any more money.
I was miserable. I spent so much thinking about how miserable I was that I actually became more miserable.
One day I sat myself down and had a little discussion, "What would you like to be doing instead? What do you want your life's purpose or life's journey to be? Let's go find it."
In your perfect life, what would you be doing?
The answer to the first part of that question was easy. If I could do anything I wanted in the world I would own my own home and home-based business. It was also a dream to own my own home but it also felt so unrealistic.
Then, I got to thinking, "why is it unrealistic? People own their own homes and businesses, why not me?" So I envisioned this wonderful life where I was the owner my own home and worked my own hours in my home-based business.
I made a list of all the things in my life that would need to be different. As I developed this list, I realized what I wasn't clear about and it became clearer to me why I wasn't getting the things I wanted.
I sat down with that list and made even more lists for every item on the list.
It didn't happen over night but slowly, yet surely, my life began to change.Â The more I focused on the positive aspects of my life and the improvements I was making, the better I felt and the more motivated I became.
There may be things you feel that you can't change in your life right now. But start with doing the millions of little things that you know you can do to get to that goal.
So why not make the change? It's as easy as focusing on your goals and really envisioning them coming to life.
It will make all the difference.
Today, I own my own home-based business, in my own home. I've still got lists to do as I visualize my new goals and continue to move forward with finding my life's purpose.
