Who do you want to be? Have you ever given it any thought?
Sure, we have ideas about what we want to do with our lives. This usually focuses on careers or starting a family so we can become a mom or dad.
At some point, usually around age 45, we begin to wonder if this is all we are in life – our career and a mom or dad. Up to this point we’ve been running like hamsters on a wheel. Working hard at our jobs and raising a family.
But as that family grows up, that wheel starts to slow down, and we suddenly have more time to think about our lives. This “mid-life crisis” event forces us to stop and think about the meaning behind it all. And the inevitable question arises – is this all I am?
Most take a non-productive path and bury themselves in things that occupy their time – new hobbies (golf, boating, crafts, fantasy football, etc.) and/or new addictions (drugs/alcohol/women).
These time-consuming hobbies and the addictions make us feel better while we’re engaged in the activities because they throw a blanket over the real issue and divert our attention. But they only serve to temporarily mask the pain we feel when we are alone with our thoughts.
A few, however, during this mid-life crisis, take the constructive path and begin to formulate a plan to become something more than a job-holder and parent. They pursue dreams and goals that will help them become something more significant in life. They strive for greatness.
We all have the capacity for greatness. But we need a plan to achieve that greatness. I call that plan Dreamsetting.
Dreamsetting will give you the answer to the question who do I want to be. Dreamsetting puts you on the right path in life. It will open your eyes and help you become the person you were intended to be.
I created a short eBook on Dreamsetting. If you’d like a copy, shoot me an email.
