This Expert Insight Interview discusses:
- Spencer Snakard’s background and expertise in helping people focus on the moment
- Questions to ask yourself to improve your life right now
- The constantly-moving goalposts we’re trying to reach
Many people feel very stuck right now, with so many things out of their control. We’ve lived through COVID, we’re going into recession, and there are all sorts of other things going on. Therefore, people feel powerless and do not consider this a very good time to go on a journey of transformation in their lives.
Instead, people tend to remain in the status quo for the time being and choose to delay their big decisions for some other time. Spencer Snakard specializes precisely in helping people break out of this mindset.
Questions to Ask Yourself
Life and business are happening now, and they’re not waiting for anybody or anything. There will always be something that will prevent you from making changes in your life, so one of the first things Spencer tries to establish with anyone she works with is understanding what they want.
She encourages us to ask ourselves: “What is my vision for my life/business?” “What do I want?” and “How can I start getting what I want from life right now?” Sometimes there are good reasons to put something off, but more often than not, it is a good idea to start leaning towards your goal even if there are things along the way that may create challenges for you.
Many of us who go into business are go-getters and high achievers. Some of us even consider this part of our identity and become defined by what we accomplish. Many of us in business seems to be running a race in which the finish line is constantly moving, so we can never get there.
This is where we should begin looking at what we can do now to improve our lives. We keep focusing on a goal that we think will ultimately make us happy, but it never works out that way because the finish line keeps moving. When it comes down to it, the finish line is death, so what are we trying to run towards anyway?
