In order to achieve your goal, you need to be curious. Curiosity pulls you into the future. You don’t know exactly how your life is going to go, but you’re curious to see what happens. This curiosity helps you overcome fear, worry, and self doubt because you’re curious to see how it turns out. Even if things don’t go exactly as you had planned or hoped, you’re curious enough to keep moving forward and see how it all ends up. Here are four areas to help you be curious about your future so that you can achieve your goals.
Be curious about finding out what life will be like once you’ve achieved your goal. Envision yourself in the future when you’ve achieved your goal. See what you’re doing, who is with you, where you are, and what’s going on. Really surround yourself with this vision and get crystal clear about that future point in time. Tune into what it feels like when you’ve achieved your goal. Perhaps you’re ecstatic, happy, excited, etc. Embrace those feelings to intensify your vision. This will bring it into better focus and make the future you’re envisioning more real.
Next, get curious about what achieving this goal will mean to you. Think about how your life will be different. It could be that your life will completely transform and change. It might just be a better way of living. Turn inward and get really curious about why you want to achieve this goal. Dig deep and find the reasoning behind why achieving this goal matters. When you get curious enough, you’ll find the driving motivation to achieve your goal. This will power you into the future and keep you moving forward towards achieving your goal.
Then, be curious about the process and journey to achieve your goal. Think about what you’ll have to do in order to achieve your goal. It is said that if you want something different, you must do something different. That usually means doing things you’ve never done before. You’ll have to step outside your comfort zone and try new things to achieve your goal. Be curious about that process and what you’ll have to do in the future to achieve your goal.
Lastly, be curious about who you’ll have to become in the process. Because the person who started this journey is going to be completely different than the person who just achieved a major goal. You will have had to try new things, experienced hitting obstacles and had to overcome them, while continually pushing yourself to keep going. This process will test your willpower, motivation, drive, and belief in order to achieve your goal. Be curious about who that is making you become. This is the future version of yourself who is wiser, more confident, and proud of yourself for the progress you’ve made to finally achieve your goal.
Be curious about your future and what it might possibly hold for you. If you knew exactly how your life was going to go, there wouldn’t be much mystery or intrigue about the future. Being curious will help you explore and be open to change that allows you to fully experience life and all it has to offer. Being curious is how you learn, grow, improve, and take your life to the next level. If you want to live life to your full potential, be curious and go after your goals.
