I know I talk about having a plan and knowing where you’re going quite a bit. I was thinking earlier on today about if it’s possible to actually succeed and reach your dreams without a plan. What do you think?
Do you need a plan?
There’s a great phrase that goes something like this:
it’s the journey, not the destination
and you know what, I love that. I absolutely agree that life is all about the journey and we should embrace and enjoy that as much as we can. BUT, I also don’t think that we should go through our lives without a thought at all either.
You can be successful
I don’t think there can be any doubt that people who meander along in life with no real plans can still be successful. It can absolutely happen! Doors can open wide and by having no set agenda you can be free to pursue any avenue you like.
We can be successful at work, academically or financially without a plan. Absolutely. We can have all the trappings of a ‘successful’ life…
Is it what you wanted?
This is the thing that matters though. As I said, there can be no doubt that we can be successful despite having plans, but is the success the thing you wanted? Yes, you might have reached promotion at work and have everyone saying how successful you are, but what if you just want to live a simple life in the country with a few chickens? All of a sudden the ‘success’ doesn’t seem like it’s right does it?
Plans direct you where you want to go
If we know what we want we can see where we need to go to get it. There really isn’t anything wrong with having focus and a desire to achieve your goals. After all, we have one go at this life and we need to make sure that we have no regrets when we get to the end of it. Let’s not regret even giving it a try right? Everything is possible if we only reach out and aim for it.
So what if you’re the type of person who really needs plans? Well, I have an idea for you! I have launched my new programme which is just for people who feel lost without a plan and who are worried that if they don’t sort themselves out life will pass them by and their dreams will stay as dreams. The Dream Action Plan helps you combat overwhelm and combat that running round in circles feeling and truly helps you become clear on what you want and how to begin getting there.
If you need more help I do offer one on one calls, including a discovery session. Check out my mentoring packages and see if anything fits you!
Whatever you decide to do, just make sure it’s something.
