What are your expectations of life?

There is a lot expected of you nowadays. Before choices were limited, you got married, got a job and tried to live life in your community as best as possible. But now it seems to be all about following your heart, being passionate, doing what you love. You have so many opportunities, so many different theoretical options to create the life of your dreams, that so many people end up not being happy with the life they actually turn out to lead.

Chances are if you are reading this, you would like to change or improve something in your life too but you are waiting for the right opportunity to come along. But what are you waiting for?

Dreams vs.. reality

A lot of people live like this! You grew up with the idea that everything is possible. But in reality, you see yourself forced to put your dreams and plans on hold because it is “not the right moment.” You work hard every day but you are still not getting the results you want. Life is not bad, there is a lot to be grateful for, you know that but it is not what you dreamed of. And at the end of the day, you can’t help going bed feeling unfulfilled. Disappointed life hasn’t worked out the way you planned but not knowing what to do to change course.

Deep inside you know you are capable of so much more. You have ideas, you have dreams. But you feel lost. You are lacking a clear direction and don’t know where to start to make a change.

Chances are that if that is how you feel, you don’t have a clear plan to achieve the things you want to achieve.  

And when we lack a real plan, we often end up looking for happiness and success in the wrong places.

But it is time to realize: there are no shortcuts in life, no quick fixes to feel happy and successful.

If you want to achieve something you will have to do the work. Why would you expect a 100% of the result, if you won’t put in a 100% of the effort?

Making a 4 step plan

It is up to you to define YOUR life story. But that doesn’t mean it is easy. It is hard work. If you are committed to achieving something, it means you have to take the conscious decision to invest in yourself and your future.

At Partem we help people make a plan for the future that includes 4 steps:

1. Define your values

First, you define what kind of person are. You explore what belief systems define you. What are the indoctrinations, traditions, fears that might limit you? What values do you have? What people do you surround yourself with? And then you decide what kind of person you need to become to be successful and happy.

2. Write a vision statement

Next, you decide what direction you want your life to go in. What is your vision for your future? What is the bigger picture you have for yourself and for what you want to achieve in this precious life you have? How do you want your life, your business, your career, your family to contribute to this world?

3. Set your goals

Third, you need to plan to make progress. If you want to achieve something you need to plan out your steps. Just wishing for happy and successful life is not going to get you there. You need to define what happiness and success mean to you and then set out goals for the long and short-term future that will contribute to that. 

4. Create a strategy

The last is making a strategic plan. No business just works towards its goals without an action plan. And neither should you. In your personal strategy, you describe all steps you need to take to achieve your goals one by one.

Working on these 4 steps: values, vision, goals, and strategy will help you get clarity on your plans for the future.
