The biggest struggle in life for most people is making sense of their current situation and why they aren’t where they want to be. Often times people don’t know where they are because they don’t measure their outcomes effectively.
In today’s episode of the Jacquesvh Podcast, I go solo and tell you a tale of a Mexican fisherman and a Wallstreet CEO that crossed paths in a small Mexican fishing village. I keep the episode short to drive home some key points about measuring where you are in life.
The problem with society is that we are overloaded with information to such an extent that we often forget about ourselves and our own situations. We are so focus on achieving certain goals that we forget to reflect on where we already are.
I have too many a times sat down with people that have everything they’ve ever dreamed of without actually knowing it. They were measuring their lives by comparing it to other people and not themselves. In life the only person you are really going up against is yourself. Your mind. The thing that controls your thoughts and emotions.
I also talk about the fact that if you’re stuck in a rut and are constantly beat down without fighting back, you’re volunteering. (A good friend of mine said this to me a while back and it has stuck ever since).
The two actionable steps I highlight at the end of this episode are:
- Write down a detailed list of 10 goals you want to achieve in your life. (Things you want to acquire, but be detailed to the cent of it’s value.)
- Define your road map on how you’re going to achieve and attain each of the goals you’ve set out for yourself. It’s important to lay out clear plans for your vision.
Yes, the path to your success can inevitably change along the way, but your vision will stay the same of what you want to obtain.
