The last few weeks and the last few months for that matter have felt a bit overwhelming. I’ve felt off, like something just isn’t right and with the new year in full swing I’ve been trying to set new goals and a vision for the future. The problem I’ve been having is that I feel a bit lost, I’m good at a lot of things but that doesn’t mean I want to do those things and being good at a lot of things means you aren’t great at anything. So I want to be great, I need to focus on what I’m good and want to do and become great.
But here lies the problem, when an chance comes our way and we look at it them as opportunity, is it fare to think that a great opportunity is just an option? For myself, I find that sometimes I stay in the “opportunity” too long or look at it like it was a great opportunity so I should be here, rather then making my own great opportunity.
Going through the process of goal setting might seem simple, “lose 10lbs” “climb a mountain” “get a promotion” well, when you take a step back and you try to set “SMART” goals and live with intention it make the process a lot more difficult. Through every different type I’ve tried in the last few years/months/weeks, the come point in all is understanding your values and desires, must come before anything else, how can you design the life you want if you don’t know what you believe in and you don’t know that this “Great Opportunity” is just an option.
Earlier this week, I came to the realization that my greatest desire is to connect and support people, because I value relationships, family, friends and growth. Now what do I want to do to live this life of connection… am I already doing it… if I am how do I do it better.
It might be time to make my own opportunity.
