Asking yourself this question often and it can show you a real break through in your life. It can also get you help with depression or low motivation if you are dealing with that. Or just help with your feelings.
So, the first thing you do is make time in your busy day to ask yourself this question: If I were to make progress in my life what would that look like?
Would I be richer? Would I be happier? Would I be more fulfilled? Would I be having more fun? What wish do I have right now that would make me feel better ?or some other question ? Personally, I used to do this when I was feeling “stuck” or “unhappy but not sure why”. I asked myself what would make my life better right now. One time the answer came back as a dishwasher. I had no dishwasher at the time and no real money to buy and install one. Also I was renting. Then I didn’t give up. I found that there were mobile dishwashers that didn’t cost an arm and a leg and didn’t need to be installed. What a joy to have my wish satisfied!
You see that it doesn’t have to be something huge and involve lots of goal setting. Of course, sometimes it does. You will never know unless you ask yourself!
