Are You Building Your Dream or Someone Else's?
Harnessing Your Potential (2 minute read)
Life, as they say, is what happens when we're busy making other plans.
Often, without realizing it, you might find yourself on a path set out by others, living life according to societal norms or external pressures.
But there come’s a point you have to ask yourselves: are we truly steering the ship of our destiny?
Our Innate Drive to Pursue Goals:
Humans are inherently goal-driven creatures.
Whether you acknowledge it or not, your daily actions, habits, and decisions are influenced by some purpose or objective.
It's an inescapable truth born from your evolutionary need for survival and progress.
But whose goals are you genuinely pursuing?
The Dangers of Living an 'Assigned' Life:
If you aren't intentionally working towards your own vision of the future, there's a high chance you're inadvertently dedicating your energy to someone else's dream.
This isn't about dismissing the value of teamwork or collective effort.
It's about recognizing when you're being confined within an identity, not of your choosing.
Consider typical societal roles - being a college student, climbing the corporate ladder to attain a specific job title, or the common narrative of retiring at 65.
While there's nothing inherently wrong with these paths, they become problematic if they're merely "assigned" roles you haven't actively chosen.
Actions Align with Beliefs:
Your actions invariably align with your deeply held beliefs.
If you believe your role is to be a dutiful student, you'll pour your energy into academic excellence.
If you identify strongly with a corporate title, you'll likely prioritize tasks that help you fit that mold better.
And if retirement at 65 is the ultimate goal, your financial and life decisions will mirror that ambition.
However, the crux is that if these beliefs and roles aren't self-chosen, they can lead to a life of subconscious compromise.
You might be fulfilling a role effectively, but is it truly in sync with your personal aspirations?
Whether or not you buy into the concept of 'survival' in a metaphorical sense, the fact remains that your actions are a direct reflection of your beliefs and identities.
If you're not conscious of this, you risk living a life scripted by others.
To avoid falling into this trap, take a moment to introspect.
Are you actively building towards your dream?
If not, it's never too late to recalibrate and set forth on a path that truly resonates with your inner desires.
After all, living authentically is the key to genuine fulfillment.
