Your Brain Wants Goals
Updated: Feb 25
Do you ever feel like you're drifting through life without a clear sense of purpose? You're not alone. Many of us struggle with feeling directionless, unsure of what we're supposed to be doing or how we're supposed to be doing it.
But here's the thing: our brains need goals. Without them, we're like ships without a rudder, tossed about by the waves of life without any sense of where we're going or how we're going to get there.
But why is that? Well, our brains are wired to seek out goals and rewards. It's part of our survival instinct. When we achieve a goal, our brains release a surge of dopamine, the "feel good" chemical, which reinforces the behavior and motivates us to keep going. Without that sense of accomplishment, we can feel lost, listless, and unmotivated.
So, what can we do to set ourselves up for success? Start by identifying what's most important to you. What do you want to achieve? What kind of life do you want to live? Then, break those big goals down into smaller, more manageable steps. This will help you see progress and stay motivated along the way.
Remember, your goals don't have to be earth-shattering. Even small, simple goals can help you feel a sense of purpose and accomplishment. Maybe you want to take up a new hobby, learn a new skill, or improve your health. Whatever it is, give yourself permission to pursue it. You deserve to live a life that's full of purpose and meaning.
If you're struggling to get started, don't worry. That's where resources like the Goal Smasher workbook come in. The workbook provides practical tools and exercises to help you identify your goals, break them down into manageable steps, and stay on track. With the help of the workbook, you can set yourself up for success and start living the life you've always dreamed of.
So, what are you waiting for? Give your brain the gift of goals and start living your best life today.
