What Are You Going To Do With Your Life?

All of us have something that inspires us, intrigues us, and makes our soul feel closer to home. Whether you are 25, 15, 55, or 85 years old, it is never to late to begin to feel like you are accomplishing your deepest inhibitions.

The Mathematical Quality of 25


Think of it as a quarter of a whole, 25%, whichever helps you to resemble the cycle of life. Ever heard the term quarter-life crisis? I can vouch for it. At, or around, the age of 25, many people experience a time where they feel somewhat confused of their future. What they went to college for may not be exactly what they thought they could see themselves doing the rest of their life, or they may be feeling resentment or insecurity from exterior forces that may leave them feeling intrinsically unsure of themselves.



Now, on the concept of a 100 year span of time, along with the paradox of 25 being the turning point of people lives, I've concluded on a couple insights of developing the life you love at any age. Set yourself 25 Goals that lead you to what you would like to see yourself accomplish in a quarter century (25 years), and make sure these goals also lead you to your ideal view of yourself. Whether it be taking up various hobbies that make you feel like you are discovering yourself, or networking with more people to build the business you have always dreamed of. The secret of attaining larger goals is to make smaller ones to reach that summit of your dreams.

The Elements Of A Whole

With the topic of smaller goals serving the milestones for your larger goals, consider how 1/4 turns into a 4/4. 100%. Fractionally speaking, you could set each 1/4 portion (25%,the 25 smaller goals) as building blocks to one large ideal goal. Keep in mind, this is just a ratio. No matter your age, the concept is to set smaller goals into a large goal, which in turn delivers you a mirror image of your ideal self. This is not to say that you have to follow each goal set for a strict 25 years, but more of a relational proportion to show you that it is feasible to use your time wisely to achieve a concept of self-actualization.

Leading The Way To Your Ideal

Your Ideal View of Yourself. A Mirror Image. Sounds great right? Setting smaller goals to reach the larger goals sets a path for you to walk (and can change along the way) to show you aspects of yourself you may not have known before. These concepts you've learned about yourself can blend with your previous thoughts of an ideal image of yourself and you've merged to a point of realization of the self. To be truly at home with your self, then you have to see a merge between intrinsic motivation and extrinsic motivation, factors that affect who you are and how you see the world. Setting goals and the pathways of their attainment show you deeper aspects of how intrinsic and extrinsic motivation affect your decision making skills.
