Bored? You Need Bigger Goals!

Have you lost your motivation in life? Is everyday the same as the last? Do you often ask yourself, “is this all there is?” Are you just planning to spend the next 30-40 years of your life on the couch just waiting for it all to end?

If you answered yes to any or all of these questions then I have the solution for you…

You Need Bigger Goals!

Maybe one of these scenarios feels very familiar to you too:

  1. You feel as if you are not making any progress in any important areas of you life.
  2. You look back over the past few months or maybe even the past few years and feel as if nothing has changed.
  3. If you face a setback or a perceived failure then you just give up.
  4. You feel as if your life has no purpose or reason.
  5. You are just plain unhappy and you don’t know what to do about it.

The answer to all of these is that you need bigger goals or maybe just some newer goals in general.

The bigger the goal you set for yourself, the more focused, motivated and challenged you will be. Life is not boring if you focus on a large goal, especially if you have taken the time to figure out a goal that is exciting to you and it is something that you are passionate about and believe in. Once you do that then boredom will no longer be an issue.

Make your goals big! Make them bold and make them compelling. Make them large enough and ambitious enough that you will not be able to achieve them without having to step outside of your personal comfort zone. Make your goals big enough to ensure your own personal development.

When you reach or goal or maybe even lose momentum with a particular goal, then make bigger ones. Chances are if you had a goal and lost momentum that the goal was not challenging enough or it just did not excite you that much to begin with.

If you are stuck in life and bored, you are more than likely a) not challenged enough, or b) not doing the things that you are genuinely interested in or excite you. If you really do not have clue, then ask yourself this question disregarding any of life’s current limits or constraints… What three things and only three things do you want to do for the next twenty to thirty years that you love and that you would be excited about doing every day?

Think about it and write your answer down, then set you goals to go about making your life exactly like that. Not only will you relieve the boredom of the present by making those goals happen but in the end you will be living the life of your dreams, following your passions and your purpose.

Goodbye boredom!
