One of the major problems that we face in the world today is the increasing number of people, especially young ones who have no plans for their future. They just breeze through life enjoying the pleasures of today without thinking about what tomorrow holds for them. You only live once they say (YOLO).
This trend, however, is not the right path for your life. You just have to think about your future, if not for your family, you have got to do it for yourself because it’s your future, not theirs. You must not let yourself get so concerned about the past and the present that you forget about the future. A better future is just a thought away. Do not enjoy the pleasures of today and suffer tomorrow. You have got to choose a better future and that starts today.
In designing a better future for yourself, it can get a little difficult and confusing because at times because you do not where to start or what to do. You sometimes begin to worry a lot and lose sight of the way forward and you eventually give up, taking the easy way out and leaving your life in the hands of fate.
It’s not new to us, we’ve all had those frustrating periods. That’s why I have gone on to highlight three ways of designing a better future for you.
Hopefully, this will help to keep you on the right path and help you to make a better future for yourself.
One: Discover Your Purpose
Discovering your purpose is the first and most crucial step to designing a better future for yourself. A man without a purpose is like a man without direction, he is lost. You have to take a look within yourself and find your purpose and then begin to work towards achieving that purpose. No one is going to point out your purpose to you. You alone can do that with a little help from God.
There are a lot of ways to discover your purpose. Firstly, you must look within yourself, understanding who you are right now and who you want to become. Finding what you’re good at and what gives you passion and a sense of fulfillment while doing it. When you find that one thing, make it your purpose and start chasing it.
Two: Make a Plan
No design is complete without a plan; this why making a plan to achieve your purpose is an important step in designing your future. It is said often said that failure to plan is a plan to fail. Every decision you take in designing your future must be accompanied by a plan. Your plan is meant to guide you on the right path, so you do not sway off your goal.
If you decide to start an online business, that is a good decision, but what will make it a better decision is the plan laid out to accomplish that goal. If you do plan on how to execute the business, you have already failed. So planning is very important in designing your future.
Three: See the Plan Through
So, you finally made a plan, that’s another step well taken. All that’s left now is to see that plan through. It’s not just enough to make a plan, you have to initiate the plan and follow it up with hard work, determination, and consistency.
These are perhaps the only sure ways to achieve your goals and create a better future. There are no short cuts in life, just do the work and watch as your future sets and takes flight right in front of you.
