How to find my goals in my life

How to find my goals in my life?
I need to set goals for my life
I need to find my life purpose

These phrases sound familiar right? In fact the question how to find my goals in life is a very popular question that many people ask. The problem with such a question is not that its difficult to answer but the problem is that people ask it the wrong way!!

In this article i will tell you how to find your goals in life.

Finding your goals in life, the biggest mistake

Many people do the mistake of trying to set goals just to have something to go after and not because they really want to achieve something in life.

That's also the same reason those people lose motivation later on. A person might start to pursue a certain goal just because he saw his friends doing it but upon discovering that this is not what he wants in life the guy loses motivation.

In order to find your goals in life you need to make sure that you are not trying to fill spaces and that your goals represent your deep desires.

Its the same as people who send me messages telling me that they want to manage their time because they want to do something useful and not because they have something useful that they want to do in their limited time. (see Top time management mistakes)

How to find your life goals

Contrary to common beliefs finding your life goals is a simple task. In order to find your life goals you need to ask yourself the following questions:

What do i really hate about my life or myself right now?
Is there something that i am badly in need of?
Am i happy? and if not then what are the reasons?

Once you answer these questions you will come up with a list of things that you really want and a list of things that you want to avoid. Use both lists to create life goals that can help you get what you want and avoid what you hate.

Lets suppose that you found that financial insecurity was bothering you and that in the same time you really wanted to be popular. You just found two of your life goals. The first is to become rich and the second is to be popular.

Unmet needs and finding your life goals

Each and every person living on this planet have certain unmet needs. Some people need recognition, others need a better life while a third group might be in need of a stress free life.

Its extremely easy to find your life goals once you know about your unmet needs. If you don't know how to find your unmet needs then just watch how your emotions change whenever you approach something or move away from something.

For example, boredom is a feeling that you experience when you move away from your unmet needs. Anxiety is the feeling you experience when you are not sure about the outcome of an event that can help you reach one of your unmet needs.

Indifference is the feeling you get when you believe that your actions wont help you reach your unmet needs.

You don't have to find your life goals today but you just need to monitor your emotions for few days until you find out your unmet needs which will then help you find your life goals. (see Where do emotions come from?
