Everybody should get what they deserve in life. This should be the case.
Unfortunately, just like most sentences with the word “should, ” this does not happen enough.
There are many things that should happen in life that do not happen. Why? Because “should” is an ideal.
It is conditional and certain conditions must exist for it to be real.
Unfortunately, reality often does not give us the right conditions. In many cases, life throws us a complete curve ball and we fall short.
If you are an Aquarius and you want to get concrete ideas on how to get what you deserve in life, pay attention.
These tips will help you get what is coming to you.
Of course, the whole analysis turns on the word “deserve.” Deserve means that you have worked for it, you put it something to be worthy of something, and there is some sort of exchange.
Usually, people exchange time, effort, and energy to get certain rewards.
Deserve mean paying your dues. I hope you get that point because deserve does not mean getting what you want.
It means getting what is coming to you. These are often 2 totally different things.
– Let others get what they want, so you can get what you want
One of the greatest paradoxes in life is the fact that if you want to make money, you have to first solve other people’s problems.
In other words, to get what you want, you must first help others get what they want.
To put it in another way, to achieve selfish ends, you have to first be self-less.
You have to understand this fundamental truth about interpersonal relationships because this enables you to do what is needed to pave the for material progress.
– Take short breaks in your pursuit of your goals
When pursuing your goals, you have to always understand that you can burn out.
You can run after your goals so intensely that you end up running on empty. You can only do this for so long until things completely breakdown for you.
In the worst case scenario, not only do you fail to achieve your goals, but you end up damaging your relationships or otherwise, poisoning different aspects of your life.
No goal is worth dying over. That is why it is extremely important to prevent burnout by taking lots of short breaks.
When you take a short break, it does not necessarily mean that you abandon your goal. It definitely does not mean that you are a loser or a slacker.
Give yourself the luxury of short breaks.
As long as you feel renewed, refocused, and energized when you restart your pursuit, then the short break would have been worth it.
– Focus on enjoying experiences
Running after your goals and trying to achieve success in your life can easily lead to a very common trap.
This common trap involves looking at success as a destination.
In fact, success is anything but.
If you want to get what you deserve in life, you have to look the process as a journey.
Enjoy the experience of overcoming hurdles and solving problems on your way to your big goal. That is how you make things happen, by enjoying experiences.
The common alternative to this is to treat yourself to goodies. You buy yourself a reward.
The problem is that it is very hard to be happy with material things. Sure, they will make you happy for a short period of time.
After that, you have to buy more stuff to feel that level of happiness again. It never ends.
However, if you base your happiness on experiences, you will feel content for a long, long time.
Focus on enjoying your experiences.
– Come up with very daring goals
People who fail to get what they deserve in life fail, not because they did not try, but because they did not dream big.
If you want to achieve big things in life, you have to think big, come up with daring goals, and think in terms of breakthroughs.
Do not just think in terms of surviving or simply getting by. That is not enough.
If you want to truly savor the feeling that you got what you fully deserve in your life, then you need to come up with daring goals and challenge yourself as to how big your dreams can be.
– Turn big objectives into big doable goals
Once you start dreaming big and you start thinking of big objectives, you are looking at big outcomes.
This is all well and good, but if you just focus on objectives, nothing is going to happen. Why?
Goals are reachable while objectives are not always reachable. There is a big difference between the two.
If you want to turn your objectives into reality, you need to convert them into big goals. Also, make sure that these goals are doable.
Just because they are big, it does not necessarily mean that they should be the goals you should be pursuing. They have to be doable and bound by reality.
– Split big goals into smaller subgoals
Now that you have set big doable goals, the next step is to chop them up into smaller subgoals. Here is a secret.
Regardless of how big your goal is and how seemingly impossible it is to achieve, you can achieve those goals. How?
By simply breaking them up into smaller subgoals.
This is how the human mind works. If you look at a big goal and you try to tackle that one big goal once and for all, 9 times out of 10, you will fail.
Seriously, the whole process will be intimidating, your big goal will scare you, and all of a sudden, your mind will start making all sorts of excuses in order to duck the work and sacrifice needed to achieve those goals.
By simply breaking these big goals into subgoals, you make achieving those goals more doable.
Why? Your mind is no longer intimidated by your subgoals. These subgoals are small enough and realistic enough that your mind can device of ways to tackle them.
Make no mistake about it. Success is mostly mental.
People who are unsuccessful do not have a success mindset. People who are successful think in such a way that they are able to know out their smaller subgoals day after day.
– Achieve subgoals by turning them into to do lists
While it is probable that you could tackle your subgoals and knock them out on a daily basis, if you want to be truly successful, you have to make the process as efficient as possible.
In other words, you need to break down your subgoals into to do lists that you can take care of day, after day, after day.
Let me break this down for you. Success is a habit. It really is.
Successful people are habitually successful. Unsuccessful people achieve success from time to time.
In other words, they simply get lucky.
If you want to be truly successful and you want to get what you deserve in life, you need to turn achieving success into a system.
One of the most effective ways to do that is to create daily to do lists. As long as you are knocking off those to do lists and you are meeting quality requirements, you are getting closer and closer to your big goals.
– Apply realistic timelines to your to do lists
There is no such thing as an unrealistic goal. Seriously, even the goal of putting a man on the moon may have seemed unrealistic at the time that that goal was set, but people were able to do it. Why?
They used realistic timelines.
Even the most seemingly impossible goal can become reality if you have realistic timelines.
Your timelines must accommodate the fact that you are breaking big goals into subgoals.
Your timelines must also accommodate experimentation and changes in direction.
If you are able to put all of these together, then no goal, regardless of how big or impossible it may seem, will be out of your reach.
