Design Your Future

“One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular.”- Tony Robbins

There are some people who fail to be successful because they don’t know what they want. And there are also some successful people who are not happy because they succeeded on the “wrong field”- and what I mean by that is they are successful, but not on THAT thing that they are supposed to be successful at.

So how do we know what we want? How do we figure out where we should be successful at? How do we live a Successful AND Happy life?

The answer is simple. YOU HAVE TO DESIGN YOUR LIFE.

Easier said than done. I know. But read again. I said the answer is simple, I didn’t say it’s easy.

You see, like any other plans that we have made into a reality, that is how we design our life too.- we conceive ideas, carefully think of the steps that we have to do to achieve them, and putting those steps into action.- The only difference is we’re looking at it in a bigger picture this time. It’s more difficult, but I honestly feel that it is more exciting too!

Many of us are so busy surviving and just making a living, but that is not our purpose in life. Who we become and what we can give in this life is up to us. We must ignite that drive to take full responsibility and control of our lives. We have to be passionate with life and know that it is more than just surviving or acquiring things. Successful and happy living is knowing who we are, loving what we do, and being able to share something to the world.

In your quiet times, meditate on your life. Picture your future self- NOT base on where you are now, but base it on how you would like it to be. Where is your life’s direction?

  • Think of the things that gives you happiness and satisfaction just by merely doing it. This is where you need to focus your time and energy because this is your “field”.
  • Write down your action plans and goals. How can you be better at this/these area/areas? What do you need to do? Who are the people that you need to involve. Identify your mini-goals and greater goals and make sure that these goals inspire  you.
  • Cultivate your values. What are your beliefs and morals? It is important that they aligned with the steps that you’re going to carry out in pursuit of your goals.

I personally believe that God did not put us on earth simply to survive. We are here to experience a good and fulfilling life. If there is something or an area in your life that is off or not working, now is the right time to decide to change it!

    1. Thank you Miriam. I see what you mean. Life is also tricky you see. Sometimes we find what we want or needed in life…we become happy…and then we begin to search again. I think it’s because we continue to grow and mature. As we become older we want to look for more meaning in our lives. Perhaps that is why it is a continous process…just my 2-cents. ☺

  1. Agree God did not put us simply to survive. However, my question is who decided about who should be our parents, brothers & sisters, place of our birth and on what basis ? Why are some people born in advanced developed rich countries like Europe & USA and others in remote poor countries in Africa ? Why some greatest celebrities despite being rich and famous are committing suicides and some slum dwellers are able to live a normal life ?

    1. Thank you for your comment. I must be honest, I could not provide an accurate answer to your questions. But what I know is that there are things that we cannot control. They are simply the facts and reality. But we can choose how to see and respond to circumstances.

      1. As a matter of fact we are nothing but just a ‘puppet on a string’. Answers to such questions you will never find in the books of modern science or managements. Spirituality starts where Science ends. If there is smoke there must be fire like wise if there is creation there must be a Creator. String of all the puppets like me on earth are held by this Creator. For detailed answers to my above questions I suggest you may kindly visit the website : http://www.ssrf.org There is one branch of the knowledge called ‘Brahm-Vidya’. It’s a Sanskrit language word. FYI post graduate from Harvard University & gold medalist from Oxford University have gone to India to learn this ‘Brahm-Vidya’.

  2. Love your post. I think designing your world is the most important thing in life, whether you’re working/studying in the creative business or not. A lot of people think they can’t design or create anything because they didn’t study it. I think that’s a big mistake. Everyone can design!

    1. You are right! You got my point exactly. We can only make our lives better if we plan ahead and if we set clear directions and goals, and make sure to act upon them. Thank you for reading my post and sharing your thoughts!
