Do you know how to control your life? What are the steps necessary to control your life?

To control your life, you have to know your values, goals and vision in life. To be able to control your life, you have to be productive and know how to deal effectively with stress, worry, and anxiety. You also should have the ability to solve problems and be optimistic as much as possible.

If your goal is to learn how to control your life, follow the below steps:

1. Know your values

When you feel that you work hard, but don’t achieve what you really want, that is because your priorities are not aligned with your principles. It is crucial that you know what your values are. Ask yourself the following questions:

What is the most important thing for you? Career, love, health, money, safety, freedom, power, strength, knowledge, etc…
What is the most important value you want to achieve?
What do you need to do to become satisfied?
How is this value going to affect your life?
Make a list of your values, then try to focus on the top three values that you believe will enhance your life for better.

2. Know what motivates you

Imagine you can do anything and never fail, what will you do? What are the steps you will take? Is there something you are passionate about, but afraid to try? A good exercise you can do is write down you hobbies and activities that you like to do and that will add to your happiness. By knowing what motivates you, you are on your way to controlling your life.

3. Know your purpose

In order to achieve what you want, you have to know what your goals are and purpose in life is. If you don’t know what your goals are, start asking yourself what are you passionate about?

For example, despite the fact that I studied Theatre and Computers, I knew deep inside my subconscious mind that this is not my purpose in life. I knew I was put on this earth for a different purpose which is to help people make a difference in their lives.

What I did was ask myself a simple question that changed my life for ever in a positive way. The question was, “If I had a billion dollar right now, what would I be doing?” After digging deep inside my heart, I knew that I wanted to be in the personal development field, to help people achieve their goals and improve their lives for better.

To make it short, ask yourself various questions that will help you find your purpose in life, this is half the battle.

4. Take action

After you know your purpose in life and you set goals to achieve it, you have got to take action. As I discusses in my book “The ultimate guide to achieve your goals” without taking inspired action, you will not achieve much in life. Start taking step by step to implement what you need to do. Remember to focus on the present time and be thankful for all the blessings you have, so you can enjoy your journey to success.

5. Manage you time

We all have 24 hours a day, however, why do some people accomplish a lot, while others accomplish very little? You are the only one who is in control of your time. Plan what you are going to do everyday and know your priorities. Try to exploit every free minute you have to work on your goals as every minute is a gift from God.

6. Discipline

Self-discipline is a crucial element if you want to control your life and achieve success. How many times you see people start new businesses and projects, then they give up or slack off? Discipline is necessary for all individuals who want to achieve their goals.

7. Stop seeking approval

If you live according to your values, the positive ones of course, you will have confidence and faith in yourself. Do what you feel and believe is right. Stop seeking approval since you are the decision maker in your life, not them.
