When is the last time you took a good look at your life?

Really. I know the days are busy and the weeks fly by, but when was the last time you checked in with yourself about how things are going? Are you doing things that make you happy? Are you working toward your goals? Are you moving forward, backward or standing still? Are you in need of some direction? If so, here are some things to consider:

Your Core Values

Are you in tune with your priorities and what is most important to YOU? Everything that follows should align with and circle back to these things. At your core might be faith, family, career, health, a cause you feel passionate about, etc. It will be different for every person. Discovering which thing(s) are most important to you is part of self-awareness and will help you build confidence!

Your Goals

What are you happy with in your life? Where are you unhappy? What would you like to be different in one year / five years / ten years? Do you have a clear vision? If not, build one. Close your eyes, and visualize the life you want ten years from now. Decide what you would need to accomplish to live that life. Then, work backwards. Realistically, how much closer could you be to that life in one year or five years? What are some stepping stones along the way that will show you that you’re getting closer? Even if your goals and dream life seem far off, maybe even far-fetched, there are sure to be actions you can start taking TODAY to bring you closer.

Take Action

What ARE you doing now, and what COULD you be doing? Even the smallest decisions and actions, when made consistently over time can easily change your life. Think of things you’re doing now to move yourself forward. Then, think of some addition actions you can take to increase the speed of that forward movement. The important thing is to stay consistent and evaluate your habits often. Are they serving you and the goals that you have? If so, keep it up! If not, change it up!

Tools for Your Toolbox

Part of staying consistent with positive actions is arming yourself with the right tools. “Tools” can be physical or nonphysical – a book, a person or inspirational quote. Anything that assists you in the journey you’re on. There are goal-specific tools like a meal plan to improve your health, a spreadsheet to improve your organization, or a therapist to improve your mental health. Then there are tools we could all benefit from no matter what our goals look like - a motivational song list, an inspirational book, the wisdom of a friend who has been in your shoes, or a coach to guide you and help you look at your life from an outside perspective. When you find something that helps you maintain a positive habit, keep it in your toolbox!
