How To Redefine AND Redesign Your Life

How To Redefine and Redesign Your Life

There comes a time in all our lives when we start to wonder. Are we doing the right things? Is it that we’re running around with our heads chopped off, getting nothing done in the process? I’ve been to that point and I know you have too. Since I was a child, I always had a vision of what my life would be like in ten or twenty years. Circumstances caused that vision to shift and for a while I was incredibly lost. It took me years of trying and failing, and trying again to really figure out that I was doing it all wrong. I’ve finally begun the long journey of carving my own destiny and I’m going to show you how to redefine and redesign your life so that you can carve your own destiny too.

“Never too old, never too bad, never too late, never too sick to start from scratch once again.”– Bikram Choudhury

1 Evaluate Your Life

The most important step on the path to changing your path in life and fulfilling your destiny is to evaluate your life.Click To Tweet Take some time and try to figure where it is that are in your life. Have you hit a road block? Are you travelling in the wrong direction? It may take you a few minutes to a few days to figure out the answers to these questions but try to take your time.

I suggest getting a notebook and making lists to help you better understand. What have you been doing wrong so far? Is there anything that you’ve been doing right? Expand on those questions to identify all your accomplishments and failures and try to figure out where you went wrong and what needs to be done in order to redefine and redesign your life. It doesn’t have to be any one mistake. It could be a series of errors. Just do your best to identify them all.

 

2 Visualize Your Destination

Once you have figured out where you are in life, it is time to identify where you need to be. Where do you see yourself going? What exactly is the end goal after it’s all said and done? I find that pictures really say a thousand words so, for me, drawing pictures and graphs really helped me to visualize my goals.

Using the same notebook, take two or three pages to draw your final destination in life. Define and design your own ending. Do you want to own your own company? Then draw pictures of it all. Is your goal in life to become an actor, blogger or musician? Think about the visual clues that will help to motivate you.

At this point, creating a vision board would be an excellent idea. Here are a few that I love and maybe you could fall in love with too.

 

3 Build A Road-map

How To Redefine AND Redesign Your Life- Build Your Road-map

Build Your Road-map

Now that you’ve identified where you want to be in life, it is time to start building the road-map. This road-map will be the path that you will take to connect where you are in your life right now to where you want to be. Setting SMART short-term goals will be a great way to begin construction of the map.

A SMART goal is specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-bound. One of the fastest ways to waste your time and everyone else’s is to build a road-map that leads to nowhere. Another way is to fill your road-map with empty, unattainable goals that leave you frustrated and tired. So take your time and carefully think about those short-term goals. Do your research and ask yourself specific questions so that you can find the specific answer you need.

 

4 Organize Your List

At this point you should have your goals and dreams in mind. The next thing to do is to organize your list. You need to decide when and in what order each item on your list needs to be done. For example, if your end goal is to become a judge then you might have the following items on your road-map :

– pass the bar

– enroll in law school

– apply for internship

In organizing your road-map, however, you need to put them in the correct, logical order so that you’re able to accomplish them in a timely manner.

Think of your goals as ABCs and just put them in order from A to Z.Click To Tweet

 

5 Make Changes

In this world and any world, as a matter of fact, talk is cheap. Our actions say more than any words ever could. If you really want to make a change in your life and become the person you were meant to be, you need to start making changes.

If you’ve been doing the same thing up until this point in your life, it’s time to start fresh. Turn over that new leaf and commit to changing all the habits that led you to this point in your life. Be deliberate and disciplined about this. If one of your goals requires you to go to school, then now is the time to start buckling down and study.

Use the road-map that you built-in step three to keep yourself motivated. Don’t try to do everything all at once or you’ll be setting yourself up to fail very quickly. Try starting small and gradually building up to larger changes. Please, also, don’t try to do multiple changes at the same time. Remember you need to remain deliberate about your actions.

 

6 Get Support

When I made the decision to move halfway across the world on my journey to changing my life, I spoke with my mother. Having her support throughout the entire process, really helped to make things a bit easier to handle. There were times when I questioned my resolve to make the move and every single time she would help me to remember why I was doing it.

Find someone who you can trust. Surround yourself with those who will help you accomplish your goals and/or keep you going towards them. The mistake many of us make is not having the right people in our corner. Because we have been friends with a particular group of people since we were children, we keep hanging around them. This is regardless of whether they mean us well or not.

You have to decide. Are these people helping you to move forward or holding you back? It can only be either/or but it most definitely cannot be both.

 

7 Be Patient

How To Redefine AND Redesign Your Life- Have Patience

Have Patience

Finally, I ask you to be patient. There is an old saying that goes “Rome wasn’t built in a day”. The same can be said of you and me. You will not accomplish it all in the space of one day or even one month. Consistent change takes time.

Remember that you were doing things a certain way for a very long time.

It is going to take a while for your changes to become habits and for your habits to help you achieve your goals. The good news is that with each day that you stick to your roadmap, you make one step closer to your destination.

So many people give up because the road seems long and narrow, and never realize how close them came to making it.

 

My Thoughts

I started my journey a little over eighteen months ago. It started off pretty wobbly and there were many days I wanted to give up. I’m glad I didn’t. During that time I realized my love for fashion illustration. I was able to figure out that blogging and photography are wonderful ways to express yourself and help others as well.

If you’re at that crossroads, it’s okay. Like I said, I’ve been there too. I was also stuck there for a really long time. Learn from my mistakes, get out there and redefine and redesign your life. You can do it. The only one preventing you from reaching your full potential is you………


There you have it. Here are seven easy and fantastic ways to learn how to redefine and redesign your life.

    These are wonderful tips! I love how you broke everything down and I am SO glad that you included being patient. I think this is something that I need to personally work on as well as trusting in the process. There have been so many things that I have accomplished in my life that I remember worrying SO much about throughout the process instead of just trusting and enjoying the journey. Thanks for such an inspiring post with some great reminders!

    Great steps to redesign your life. I think many people believe that they are stuck where they are. Hopefully, your comments will give others the courage to take a risk and move to a better place.

    Your suggestions are great. I love “make a list” and “build a road map.”

    All of these steps would be essential to redefining your life. You would need to know where you were before you could make any change. And then you would need to plan and prepare in order for that change to come about.

    Yes. I agree that you need to know the start and ending point so you can figure out the in between.

    As long as we still have willingness to take actions to change our life, we can still do it no matter what age we are. Change starts on us.

    I completely agree. Change begins with us wanting to change.

    I really needed to read this, because I’m at a precipice in my life, and I have to make a defining decision with regard to my career, as I can no longer handle the stress and long hours it requires. I’m just going to have to visualize my destination, and step out on faith!

    Yes sweetie! Step out in faith and take that leap!

    Being patient while trying to achieve your goals is probably the best advice I ever got. I love to see quick and instant results but that will not happen always.

    Yes more often than not we will have to work hard for many years before we see the fruits of our labour.

    “Build a road map” such a great tip – a lot of insight there! Too often we want to achieve something but don’t make any plans or lists on how to go about it.

    My Dee Dee's Diary 1 week ago Reply

    Thank you. Yes why do we think that just dreaming is enough? We need to take action too.

    Wow. That is so great. I am glad that I was able to help you out.

    I’m working on that “be patient” part. It’s hard when you are working digiliently on something only to not see it happen as quick as you would like.

    My Dee Dee's Diary 1 week ago Reply

    It is hard but that is why we need patience. Not everything will be instant.

    It’s been a big year so far for me. But I know I would be able to crush new goals without a good plan and support. I really liked your alphabet analogy, to help me order my goals.

    I definitely believe that sometimes you have to take a step back and re-evaluate. Life shouldn’t be about settling.

    My Dee Dee's Diary 5 days ago Reply

    It really shouldn`t but so many of us do it.

  • Valerie 3 days ago Reply

    This really hit home… I am at that point, I feel like I’m all over the place, and I need to re-evaluate my goals and things i want to accomplish! Definitely need to start being more organized !
