In order to live your life without fear, hesitation and regret, you have to know exactly who you are and why you are here. The best way to make this discovery is through self reflection and meditation. By taking some time to really reflect, you can clearly define your vision, purpose, passion, strengths and skills. After making these personal assessments, you can confidently take focused actions to leave your mark on the world.
I’ve found that it’s easier to map out your life from a futuristic standpoint. In other words, answer the following questions by imagining that you’re old as hell (85 or 90) and are looking back on your life. Doing so forces you to think about how you truly want to live and will enable you to take actions without regret or fear. After all, when you look backwards, you realize that you had to take certain actions to have lived the life of your dreams.
So, imagine that you are 85 or 90 years old…
What Was Your Vision?
Who are you and what did you accomplish? Who did you become? What have you done to make the world a better place? What kind of legacy did you leave for your family?
What Was Your Purpose?
How did you achieve your vision? Were your desires met? Did you help others along your journey? What did you contribute to the world?
What Was Your Passion?
What did you do during your life that excited you? What drove you the most? What did you love to talk about and share with the world? What got you fired up?
What Were Your Strengths?
What talents did you use to accomplish your goals? What new things did you learn on your journey? What did you have to learn to help you succeed? What skills did you have to master?
Who Were Your Biggest Fans?
Who did you help the most throughout your life? How did you serve them? What values, beliefs, and challenges did the have?
What Was Your Message?
What were the biggest lessons that you learned? What did you teach others? What were you most uncompromising about?
What is great about this exercise is that it assumes that you lived the life of your dreams already and are looking back with complete gratitude that you lived life exactly how you were meant to live it – with richness, success, accomplishments and love.
What kind of life do you want to live? What is your vision, purpose and passion? What is your message?
