For this post to be effective, please take out a piece of paper and a pen to complete the following exercise.
1. Make a list of 10 things you love to do. Then make a list of 10 things you do each day. Compare the list.
Are you doing what you love? If not, why not?
If there is something you love doing, make time for it. Don’t give yourself excuses or postpone it for another time. For example, if you love travelling, set aside a budget and time! Don’t wait until you have more money. Don’t wait until you have more time. Sometimes, days will turn into weeks, weeks into years, and eventually you won’t have any time left.
2. Is there something you want to achieve? What are you willing to do for it? Be honest and as specific as possible.
Words are cheap. It’s easy for someone to say, “I want to lose weight.” “I want to quit smoking.” “I want to make lots of money.” Well then, what are you willing to do about it? If you’re going to continue doing the same thing you’re doing now, you’ll keep getting the same results.
Actions prove who someone is. Words just prove who they want to be.
3. What are the top 5 qualities you look for in a partner? Do you possess those qualities?
When it comes to choosing a partner, most of us have a list of expectations and requirements that we would want that person to meet. But, what do you have to offer? If you want someone responsible, reliable, trustworthy (and so on), ask yourself, do you possess those traits? Don’t expect someone to be loyal if you aren’t loyal yourself.
4. If you were to meet yourself, would you like yourself? Why or why not?
Imagine if you were to meet a person who is exactly like you. Would you want to be friends with that person?
I hope you enjoyed this post. As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, I will be posting every Monday! Stay tuned.
