Happy GroundHog Day!
Did Puxsutawney Phil see his shadow today? Will there be 6 more weeks of winter? Or maybe you are wondering if you are going to be like Bill Murray in the movie Groundhog Day and live the same day over and over again. I have to admit the first part of 2010 has felt like Bill Murray’s Groundhog Day to me. There are some things going on in my career that seems like okay same old day and same old story, but I have snapped out of it. I feel like I am getting back on track and focusing on the goals have set to accomplish. You see, I was getting short sighted and not seeing the big picture of what I wanted my life to become. I had to realize that what is happening now is going to be a positive for me in the future. Nothing stays the same forever and change is good, so if you are struggling right now with what is happening in your life or what is not happening in your life, no need to worry, things are happening for a reason and continue reading below to find out how to stop having Groundhog day over and over.
Ask your self the following questions and write down your answers.
- If you are struggling first of all you need to ask yourself do you have any long term goals set for yourself?
- Do you have a vision of what you want your life to be like 5, 10, and 20 years from now?
- Once you have those down do you have a plan?
- Is the plan detailed enough to help you step by step to reach those goals?
By all means the answer to these questions will not be the end all be all, but you will have a better idea of where you stand and what you need to do to get out of that rut! And to think if Bill Murray had only done this maybe he would not have had all those miserable Groundhog days!!
