Time changes, so do our needs and requirements. Along with everything else, the way you look at your life, deal with your loved ones and other people around you also change. However, it becomes important for you to keep your behavior in check so that you stay focused in life and make it even more meaningful. Here are a few questions that may help you keep yourself on the path of progress:
What is the purpose of my life?
You live for your family, friends and loved ones. You make sacrifices for them and live to bring a smile on their faces. Even in your social circle, there are people who give you reasons to work hard and to follow your dreams but that hardly completes you. Most people are always a part of a rat race for money, which seems never-ending. When they get old, they eventually come to realize the fact that their lives had no meaning or purpose. You must find the meaning and purpose of your life so that you do no end up having a big pile of regrets.
What have I learnt?
You get maturity as you age and get experienced but it is also true that most people simply roll with the punches. They get lost in their own thoughts and can hardly make up their minds even after spending a good span of time on the face of this earth. When they get clarity of thoughts, it is already too late to change anything and they simply give up. Make sure you not only age but get wiser with your choices in life so that you can pass on the learning to your upcoming generation.
How do I look at my life?
One must not live in a dream world. No one has a perfect life, everyone feels that universe had been unfair to him/her at a certain point of time and that is all right. There are days when you feel down and low but if that’s what describes your life then it must ring the bell. You are a unique individual who always have the power of choice with him. Chose to be happy, as your happiness is your prime responsibility.
Am I playing it too safe?
It’s good to feel happy and secure but the eternal happiness lies in unblocking your full potential. You can never be truly happy or content until you let others see your best. That not only makes you feel good about yourself but also brings out the best in you day in day out. Take measurable risks in your life and let every notice that you are around.
Am I happy with my life?
Happiness is the ultimate goal of human life. It includes every single aspect of your life, be it career, family, passion or your dreams. Look at your life and if you wish to change anything make efforts to do that since life is what you make it at the end of the day. Remember, you must take the control of your life in your own hands and take it in the right direction. Where do I see myself five or ten years later? What efforts do I need to make to change my life for good? What should I do to live an exemplary life? Do I live my life my way or not? The answers to these questions hold the secret of your happiness in life.
One should make constant efforts to live a life full of purpose and take it in the right direction. You always need a reality check to live a life that makes you feel complete.
