We all reach a point in life where we question what we should be doing with ourselves. Some people believe this is a midlife crisis, and others just know that there is a time for a change. It’s not a crisis of confidence to finally admit to yourself that you’re not doing something that makes you happy. In actual fact, it’s pretty brave! It takes a lot to admit to oneself that life has to change, especially if you realize that you’re off-course with the goals that you always imagined that you would have. When you’re stuck on the same old loop, you need to take a moment and reassess where you want your life to go. It can be comfortable, but is comfortable a good thing? Is comfortable exciting for you?
If it’s not, it’s not a bad thing. You need to have a purpose, which is why life goals are a must. You know that there is more to life than what you have right now, and you know that you need a change. So, you need to assess the goals you set out for yourself earlier in life and see where you are. It’s not about having a shopping list of things to get before you die. It’s about having a list of dreams and aspirations that you know you can comfortably tick off. You need a plan. Perhaps the time is now to get that dream house. What if it’s now that you should learn how to become an actuary and stop waiting around to find out? Unless you have a plan in place, you’re not going to know if you’re on track. Life goals are the things for which we must aim to achieve what will make us happy, and while your goals may change throughout life, there are specific goals that we all have for ourselves, and we need to work on them if we want to get to that peak happiness we crave.
