Setting Life Goals after 40

Often men & women entering their 40’s start to reflect on what they have achieved in  life, where their life has gone & what they are going to do with the rest of their lives.  “Is there something else?” is a common call from those who are stuck in a rut currently and are unsure in which direction to head.

This phenomena of mid-life crisis is felt by many & for varying reasons. The thought that half your Life has gone is scary. The thought that the next half of your Life is around the corner & you have no plans to live it, is even more scarier!

Goal setting may seem “ho-hum” to some however without some definitive plan for your future, “the crisis & the rut” are likely to continue. In the first instance, you need to be motivated to create a more fulfilling life. It doesn’t need to be hard or difficult, you just need to commence thinking along more positive lines- changing your thoughts changes your life. Start to see things differently… doesn’t have to be the same as it always has!… starts with your thinking.

You are heading in to the next phase of your life. Establishing goals for it may seem daunting, especially if you have had no previous exposure to Goal Setting or have resisted it in the past. The effort is worth it! Getting started is the hardest part however once you have, ‘the flow’ will commence.

I am not going to give you a detailed plan of what to do now, as it is your life and your goals are … your goals, they are what’s important to you.

However I have previously posted ” 5 Effective steps to setting Meaningful Goals” . If you would like to view this, it hopefully will give you some hints or visit my website.

Age 40 & beyond is a wonderful place to be. Your views on Life are changing. Your goals in Life no doubt need changing (or at least reviewing) as well.

What’s really important to you now, the next 5,10,20 years? Time will not wait for you. Clarifying the important aspects of your life will help you set Meaningful Goals for now & your future…..Go for it!

Be good to yourself
