Be the CEO of You

Change your Dynamic Don't Just Fit into A System
Being the CEO of you means taking charge of your life. What do you want? Start there. Start with your personal vision. No one is coming to your rescue. No one is giving you more than what you are willing to do for yourself. No one is handing you your dream life. You can either be passive in your goals, or you can take the bull by the horns. Determine what you want. Figure out how much you need to sustain that and go to work, getting it. You must have a plan for you and for your life. We should always be our top priority. Whether that is within our families, society, the workforce, wherever. That is because no one will ever want more for you than you want for yourself. And if that is the case, you must stand up and be the CEO of You.
You must make the plan, come up with the strategy, figure out how to get from point A to where you want to be. No one else is coming up with a plan for you. Our educational system has not given us the tools that we need to map that out. But there is help. You can get the help you need to figure out how to get from where you are to where you want to be. You should be open to talking about what it is you want, taking constructive criticism and open to discussing what went wrong, where you are now, here and today, redirecting, shifting gears, and maybe taking a few steps back to ultimately move forward.
The current plan does not allow for that. Most of us have this fixed mindset. We feel like we have put in the work and we have arrived. The only way to get more is to work harder. That is not the truth. We can work smarter, but we need a game plan.
What Do You Need to Reset
So, what do you need to reset? The first thing will be a different mindset. Mindset is everything. It is a word that has been trending a lot lately. But as the saying goes, where there is smoke, there is fire. Meaning, the reason why mindset is floating around so much is it is the most important part of any reset. You will not get new results with old thinking. Any change that you will ever have will be a result of unlearning the stuff that works against you and learn what will move you forward.
After a mindset shift, you will need to identify the areas in your life that are not performing, that are weak, and that you are unhappy with. Those areas will become your objectives. Those are the areas of in your lives that you need to focus on and work to strengthen. Put in the work to become the best version of yourself. To become the CEO of our lives.
Start with The End in Mind
Starting with the end in mind is about asking yourself:
· What do you want?
· What do you want your life to look like?
· Where do you want to live?
· What kind of homes you want to live in.
· Do you want multiple homes?
· Do you want fancy cars?
· What kind of schools do you want your kids to go to?
· What kind of existence do you want your kids to have?
· What kind of experiences would you like your families to have?
· How do you want to move?
· Do you want to be able to pick up and go and with no notice?
· Do you want to be able to cover any emergencies with no problem and no interruptions, to life as you know it?
· Do you want to be able to help those who cannot help themselves?
· Do you want to shop, without looking at price tags?
· What do you want?
If you are the CEO of you, these are the things that you are considering. These are the things you are planning for, strategizing around, because no one can tell you, no. No one can tell you you cannot. The bills will not dictate how you live. You will become a profitable being by planning, taking charge, and by executing.
The work will be on your mindset and your habits, removing your limiting beliefs. No one is in charge of you no one but you. And if that is the case, why are you holding you back? What are you afraid of? What can you not have, and why?
