HOW TO CREATE YOUR LIFE OF ADVENTURE
Part 2: Cultivate an Adventure Perspective
Your particular attitude toward or way of seeing and approaching your life.
- EXPLORE unknown territories.
- Have exciting or remarkable EXPERIENCEs.
- PARTICIPATE in exciting, possibly risky, activities.
Evaluate Your Current Life Perspective
To cultivate this adventure perspective in your life, start by evaluating your current life perspective.
Ask yourself the following questions and spend time thinking about your answers. Write your thoughts down or keep them in the back of your mind as you continue this journey.
- What would you say your current life perspective is?
- How do you view and approach life?
- Do you tend to see life in a more negative or more positive light?
- Do you approach life with fear or with excitement?
- Do you spend time worrying about what might go wrong or do you spend time thinking about all the possibilities?
- Or maybe a combination of these? And maybe it depends on the situation?
Write it Down
If you aren't already doing so, I encourage you to be writing all your dreams and thoughts down in a journal while going through this series. It is always beneficial to put thoughts down on paper and to be able to look back on and reflect as life moves forward and your current dreams and desires morph and change over the years. If you don't have a journal at home, here are some fun options worth checking out.
Visualize the Life You Want
After thinking about your current life perspective, think back to your dreams from Part 1, or reread Part 1 if you need to be reminded.
Use your dreams and the desires you discovered to help you look ahead and visualize what you want your ideal life to look like and who you ideally want to be. Visualize your ideal future and what you want most out of this life. Write it down.
Dreaming about and visualizing your future is so important to creating your life of adventure. By dreaming and visualizing, you focus on the long-term results, the end goals. This helps to keep your perspective in the right place and it helps you to prioritize and be intentional when making choices and decisions.
As we move on, continue to focus on the visualization of your future. This is what will guide you through the shift in your perspective, the shift from your current life perspective to the adventure perspective.
Now let's look at that shift.
