5. Take Action: Go After What You Want
Have you ever felt like you wanted to live life differently than how you’re currently living, yet you’re unsure where to begin?
Your dreams have always been in the back of your mind, tantalising you to do something. However, you feel uncertain about how your life will go when you do begin the path toward the good life.
Follow these steps for how to begin to live the very life you’ve always wanted:
- Know that you deserve to have the life you want.
Rather than saying, “My partner wouldn’t want me to do this” or “My life will be harder if I give up the salary I make now to pursue my dreams,” consider the idea that you deserve the life you long for, regardless of what it takes to do it. When you truly connect with the fact that you’re entitled to have everything you want, those feelings will push you forward toward empowerment.
- Think it through and problem-solve.
Refuse to let discouraging thoughts stop you. Talk to your partner if you fear they may not support you. Listen to their position and then share your hopes and dreams with them. Ponder together how you could live on less money, if that’s what it will take to get what you yearn for.
- Complete the first step toward your dream now.
If you want to become an entrepreneur, start to educate yourself in your spare time. Test the waters and incorporate your ultimate goal into your current life. Fit in parts of your dream whenever you can.
Satisfy your craving to do what you want by taking baby steps toward it. Becoming empowered is all about pursuing what you want, even if it’s an inch at a time!
- Do your homework.
When you research what you want to accomplish, it will push you into action. Plus, doing your homework is taking action.
- Ask for support.
If you require childcare twice a week to pursue your interests, ask your parents, brother, sister, or friends to help you. Offer a trade. When you require some type of assistance to pursue your dreams, mention that you’d be happy to help out your neighbour, friend, or family member with a task they want done if they’re willing to assist you too. For example, you could say, “I’ll feed and walk your dog while you go on that weekend away if you can do something for me.” Using the barter system to complete tasks is a valuable tool of empowerment.
- Create a step-by-step process for how to reach your desired life.
