Follow Your Compass

So with another year coming to a close, another year is about to begin. I figured we could all use some motivation to begin the best year of our lives. I believe this is the perfect quote to conclude 2020, and begin the new year with this knowledge.

Some people are so obsessed with time. They feel like in order to be successful, they must have a degree by the age of 23, get married at 25, buy a house at 26, start a family when they are 27, and continue building a family through their early 30s, make time to travel the world by 45. And the list just keeps on going. And they probably feel if there are any set backs that prevents them from achieving these goals, which set backs almost likely to happen, they aren’t successful in their eyes.

I am not hating on anyone that may have these goals for themselves, by any means. But at the same time, you shouldn’t feel the need to put an exact age on these goals for yourself. What we should realize is that, it is a good thing to set goals for ourselves. But to the point we are stressing ourselves out by placing (sometimes) an unrealistic time frame on ourselves, it s not okay. You can still be successful if you buy a house at the age of 35.

A solution to this problem is to that we follow our compass instead of a clock. We would feel happier about the journey, instead of feeling like we are running against a clock. Stressing out about running out of time, is what is going to take away the moment of happiness, joy and success of these goals.

We should just let our lives unravel the way it is meant to be, instead of stressing out of completing a goal by a certain age. You can still achieve goals without having it done by a special age. What matters is that we accomplished a goal.
