One of the beauties of being an adult is that you’re poised to quickly identify phony. Generally, the older you get, you train yourself to know what you want and what you don’t. You know how what you want looks like.
As we grow older, even our idea of success changes. It’s progressively defined based on each person’s values and we establish clear signs to help us know when we’ve attained it.
It’s frustrating to engage in the battles of life without knowing what victory looks like. When I was in debt, I had a clear picture of what winning was. My strategic plan to be debt-free included a well-deserved vacation. So when I paid it off, I bought a ticket and went off to have a blast.
Also, I had signs in my payment plan to show me that I was getting close to the finish line. This kept me energized.
The challenges of life can be exhausting. That’s why it’s helpful to have a way of knowing that you’re winning. This way you’re able to monitor, evaluate and adjust your strategy for best results.
