Do you know where your life, your career, your future is heading? Do you have a game plan to get you from where you are today to where you envision yourself next week, next month, next year, or 5 years from now? Though we can not control every event that enters our paths, our reaction to those events leads the way to our desired outcomes, through obstacles, or foils our plans. Life happens. We get complacent. We get lazy. We gravitate to what is familiar. We compare our lives to others and notice that some have more than us, some get where they want to go in life, some have it easy, some have it all, some are less fortunate or less advantaged. In a ‘look at me’ moment in time where lives are exposed more now than ever, there has never been a better time to look in the mirror, take inventory, re-calibrate, plan, focus, and create the path you wish to go into.
Brighton College offers a variety of programs for adults who want to take life by the reigns and create the future of their dreams, one experience at a time. What is keeping you from living the life you have envisioned? Knowing where you are going and how to get there takes a few simple steps. First, spend some time silently thinking about your decisions, your options, your future. Second, write down your goals. Third, write down any anchors holding you down, keeping you from growing as a human, standing in the way of your dreams. Fourth, look at your calendar, how you spend your time, how you spend your money. Fifth, are you taking good care of yourself, your body, your mind, your overall well-being? Last, make a list of your habits, the good, the bad, and the ones that don’t fall into either category.
Take some time to review this list and share it with someone who cares about your well-being and wants to see you happy. The next step is to determine what changes are needed to bring you to your goals. Make those changes, find a strong mentor, volunteer your time by sharing your talents as you map out your goals, identify options, commit to creating the future of your dreams. Take the next step…. your future is waiting.
