You are probably wondering why I’m asking someone I don’t know where they want to be in 5 years. Well, it’s simple. This simple question will get you thinking. It will help you to create a life plan for the next 5 years.
But why 5 years, why not a year or 10 years. Well, 5 years is the ideal point. It is not too close that you feel pressured to reach your goals fast. But not too far in the future that you forget about your plan and go off track. 5 years gives you the best amount of time to create a plan and work towards it. Helping you to reach these goals in an ideal time frame.
Having a goal for where you wish to be in 5 years will help you to drive your business forward. It will help you to discover your passion and the true meaning of you. Helping you to progress in the ways you want to and not how you are told you have to.
Taking time away from our working lives is extremely important. We have spoken about taking a break, but today we are on about proper time away. It is extremely difficult for people who love their career, are self-employed or are made to feel like they need to be at work all the time to take any time away. This includes their dedicated holiday. But, we can’t stress enough how important it is to take time away from your career.
Without you even realising it, your working career no matter how much you love it, can affect your mental health. Taking dedicated time away will help you to keep your mental health stable.
With self-employed workers, it is even harder to take time away. With the time you spend working on your own business correlating to the amount of money you earn. But again taking time away can help you. It can help you discover new ways to improve your business. It gives you time dedicated to yourself and your family to regain your energy and spirit.
There is a huge misunderstanding in the world, that simply taking a break is going to damage what you are dreaming of doing. But this is not the case at all. Taking a simple break from your day-to-day life can help you in amazing ways. You should not be looked down on for having a break and focusing upon yourself. Now, I am going to share with you some of the main reasons why breaks will do you the world of good!
Time To Focus On You!
Taking breaks from your normal life and work-life gives you the opportunity to focus on yourself. Giving you the time to find your true happiness with what you want to do in life. Giving yourself time to focus on your own self is important for self-growth.
You May Find A New Passion
Taking a break is an excellent time for you to possibly find a new passion. With you having a break from your normal work life, you may find a new passion. Discovering a new passion may boost your spirit in pursuing a new career path, in the long run boosting your mentality to reach your dream.
Extra Time For Research
Everyday life can get away with you, with you completely forgetting about the dream you are chasing. Taking regular breaks can help you to in fact get back on track. With you having extra time to conduct a range of in-depth research that will enable you to reach your dream life.
So, if you need to take a break, please don’t worry. Needing a break is completely normal. Taking a break can in fact boost your mentality for chasing your dream life. It will never damage your dream, only ever offer you new alternatives to the life you dream of having.
Motivation, whether this is from others or ourself, it is extremely important for self and business growth. Having motivation to do something compels us to complete the task. Giving us a reason to do what we are wanting to do. Motivation from others can be anything from positive feedback to a generic ‘you can do it’. All of these will help you to achieve your dream and what you are setting out to do. Self-motivation is just as, if not more, important than motivation from others. You need to feel as if you can do this yourself. Motivating yourself will help you not only to complete the task you have set, but it will help your mental health. With you feel accomplished when you have achieved the goal set.
Motivation helps us all in different ways. With the most being the encouragement it gives us to achieve our dreams. It is the most successful way of achieving your goals.
Setting targets is one thing you can do to help achieve your dream career. Seeing how far away your dream career is in the future can be off-putting. Making it possible for you to lose motivation to work towards this dream career. However, if you were to set targets, you will find that you are more motivated to work towards your dream career. With small targets helping you to realise that each small accomplishment is a step in the right direction. The targets which you set yourself are completely up to you, some of our favourites include posting on social media x amount of times, growing your interactions with others, selling x amount of products in x amount of time or learning a new skill to help your business to grow. Each time you complete any of these targets you will feel more accomplished and more motivated. Being able to cross off each target will help you to visualise the progress you are making.
Everyone has their dream career. Whether this is what you have always wanted to do from your childhood, or a newly discovered profession you would love to get in to. It is possible to achieve your dream career no matter what stage in life you are at. All it takes is for you to conduct your research and have belief in yourself. Gaining knowledge in the career path you wish to follow is what is going to help you massively. Knowing as much information as you can will help you to flourish. Most careers it is possible to become self-employed within as long as you have the correct skills, this is something to always consider. Some may require degrees of sorts, but there will always be away. Researching will be your best friend when following your dream, helping you to know fully what you need to thrive.
