Achieve goals with the right mindset: Live more consciously in the here and now

"Enjoy your life now before it's too late!" - Parents advise their children, teachers tell students and friends give each other this strange advice. Once we have a promising job and a family, life with freedom and travel is finally over. contemporary-future-future

We should do something!

It's one of many conventions we grow up with. We feel obliged to go to work and create something in order to meet the expectations of the environment and society. With every employment relationship, every meeting in your appointment calendar and every television program, you align yourself with someone else's agenda and thus give up control of your time.

Culturally, the past and future are more important to most Germans than the present. Conversely, this is the case for the South and Asian cultures, where the present is superior. Based on these timely priorities, with which most of us have grown up, we make decisions about future safeguards and let us restrain ourselves from past experiences.

Time travels bring nothing

Thought time travel into the past and the future will bring you in the least cases. In the past, anger and remorse are about the things you could have done or not done. In the future you will come across doubt and fears.

Ultimately, you can only influence the present. Only in the present you have the chance to change your life. No matter what your past looks like and what your assumptions about the future are. Living in the present also means not thinking about the result in every situation. Instead of always asking yourself what result an action has, enjoy the process. Here are some examples:

  • Take piano lessons without impressing other people.
  • Write a blog without making money.
  • Travel to a foreign country without seeing all the sights from the travel guide.
  • Enjoy building your online business without constantly thinking about the financial return.
  • Keep in mind that the journey is the destination, and for all your well-meaning ambitions, do not forget to pause and enjoy this never-ending journey.

5 years to pension?

Most of the lives of many people are pretty much predetermined. They go to school, do an education or study, work for 40 years and then enjoy the well-deserved pension. Is not there something lazy?

Should you really spend the best part of your life making the best possible provision for retirement age? You probably hear sayings like “only five years until you retire” from older colleagues. Isn't it absurd to long for retirement? It's just as absurd as looking forward to Friday and the upcoming weekend on Monday morning.

I'm sure you hate it when the weeks pass by. You want to live your life now and not wait for the next weekend and certainly not until retirement. Now you want to learn languages, do sports, discover new cultures and travel the world as long as you have the drive and physical condition. You want to get out of the vicious circle of education, work and pension, right?

Mini-Retirements

The idea behind the mini-retirements (mini-pensions) is that the "retirement time" is spread over the whole life. The money is not saved for old age, but regular time-outs are taken in which small savings are spent. So every few years you reward yourself for your hard work and spend your money on travel or other passions.

In practice, this can be a sabbatical or the transitional period between two jobs. During this timeout, you prefer to spend part of your pension instead of waiting a lifetime. Knowing that as a reader of this book you do not want to wait for such opportunities, I have a better alternative for you. What do you think about working hard on building your online business over the next two to three years, and then treating you to months of mini-retirements every year?

The fact that this idea is anything but utopian is proven by many online entrepreneurs, who are rewarded for their work with regular breaks. Let the idea of ​​mini-pensions sink for a moment.

Rearview Mirror Syndrome

The “Rearview Mirror Syndrome” (RückspiegelSyndrome) ensures that we constantly look back and relive our past again and again. We mistakenly believe that we are determined by our past selves and thus limit our potential.

Instead of being positive about new opportunities, we look backwardsspiegel and evaluate our chances with past doubts, fears and skills. To make a big change in your life, you have to stop looking backwards. Don't let limiting experiences from the past stop you from trying something new.

If you could not do something yesterday, then you can learn it today. Your past does not dictate what your future looks like. Do not make the mistake of letting yourself be defined by experiences in your past.

Do not lock yourself up by thinking about the future

Thinking about the future is basically not a bad idea. Those who live from one day to the next without a long-term vision cannot develop their full potential. On the other hand, it never does Senseto worry about the future.

  • Why should you, as a student, worry about your pension?
  • Why, as a young mother, already think of the study of your child?

You can not influence these things without unnecessarily restricting yourself in the present. You should align your future to your vocation or vision.

If your daily decisions follow this overriding purpose, then you gain security. But not if your future thinking is determined by news, your environment or conventional assumptions. One of these conventions is the constant worry about retirement provision, which in no case should dominate the heyday of your life.
