A couple of days ago, I was asked by a broker and realtor to come and work with them if I wanted. I hesitated, hemmed and hawed, but it just stayed in the back of my mind. I’m not unacquainted with the industry, since both my parents and my grandparents have been agents at one time, but I didn’t like what was going on in the bubble and stayed away.
This is the second step in our series on creating your life. Last time we visualized the life we want. But next, how do you get there? How do you make that life happen? It may seem trivial but the next step is setting goals. Think about what you visualized. Fill in the following blanks:
- In my ideal life I live in ______________. (Answers may include a house, an urban setting, on a farm, all dependent on what you visualized.)
- In my ideal life I work _______________. (Answers may include the type of job you were doing, the hours you were putting in, or even the location, such as I work in an office, I work from home, I work no more than 25 hours a week.)
- In my ideal life I have specific people around me. They are _________________. (A family, children, friends, my dog, whatever you see.)
- In my ideal life I choose to spend my time _________________. (If you had unlimited time and resources, what are you doing in your perfect life?)
If you answered these questions, you just set goals. Goal-setting is not complicated, it’s just the process of seeing what you want, and committing to make it a reality.
