What’s Next?

whats next

Now that I have a plan, what’s next?

So, this is a follow up to my most recent post about my plans for the future. In the last post I discussed where I hope to see myself  throughout the course of my life, taking into consideration that nothing is guaranteed and that anything is possible.  So now my question is, what’s next? How am I going to turn my dreams into plans? Where do I go from here?

Well, my first step towards action is just finding a goal and telling myself that I need to work harder at it. I find that I got halfway into things and sometimes I panic and back out before they can become anything because I am just as afraid of success as I am of failure. So in reality, I have so many big dreams that I can work towards with a little effort and a bit of help, but I am too afraid to get started out of risk of things becoming too complicated or me getting in too deep.

So I have had this dream of owning my own business for a while now but whenever I try to think of what kind of business it would be, my mind races and I think of tons of different possibilities that I would love to completely submerge myself in. However, no matter how many ideas I come up with my goal stays the same, create something that is mine and be my own boss.

I don’t know if it is my fear of working a desk job my whole life or the fact that I watched a bunch of Shark Tank with my boyfriend the other night, but I am just itching to get out there and create something that the world will remember. I just need a plan and a push.

So back to my questions, what is next for me? Well, first its going to be to find a purpose and a motivation. Then it is the harder step of asking for help and building something from the ground up. Putting myself out there and taking criticism even if it hurts is something I have to get used to. Then going back to the drawing board then back again…and again…and again…until I have an idea that means something and a plan of execution.

So to complete these steps, the first thing I need to do even before step one, is to educate myself. I need to read other people’s stories and learn things that I never had the chance to learn in school and relearn the things I did learn in school that will help me.

Deciding to take my life into my own hands and creating a new path for myself is like signing up for a marathon. I have to train and train to run the marathon and even with my training it is still going to be an uphill battle, but I am ready for it.

All I know is that I want to make something that is mine and to create a legacy. I will get there one day. I just need to find that starting line~

  1. I totally understand what you’re going though because I’m going through it right now.And the part that you said “whenever I try to think of what kind of business it would be, my mind races and I think of tons of different possibilities” I do the same exact thing but I’m learning to focus on one thing at a time instead of overwhelming myself with all these ideas. Anyways thanks for posting this up. Let’s be friends!
