Many people ask me who the target audience is for LifeMap. This is a tough question for me to answer. I think the LifeMap process could be helpful for anyone. So I find the best fit for the LifeMap audience is people who want purposeful direction in their life but can’t quite figure out how to get there. Read through the 4 reasons below to see if you should be building a LifeMap too.
You Struggle to Achieve Goals
What I mean is, if you’ve ever set goals and struggled to achieve them, LifeMap is for you. If you don’t know what your next steps in a relationship, your finances, work, or your spiritual life, LifeMap is for you. LifeMap is also for people that want a more precise path to follow in their lives. When you build a LifeMap, paving a path to your future becomes clearer than it ever has before.
You Hate Creating Goals
Building A LifeMap is about answering the right questions well, creating a plan to accomplish your goals, and surrounding yourself with great accountability to make sure you see results. If you see the word “goal” and it makes you cringe, LifeMap is for you. Yes, you will set goals but the difference here is you can and will accomplish them. One of the best quotes on goal-setting comes from Stephen Covey, he says, “Stop setting goals. Goals are pure fantasy unless you have a specific plan to achieve them.”
This quote is a perfect summary of why building a LifeMap works, you don’t just set goals you make plans to achieve them.
You are Transitioning in Life
LifeMap is for people transitioning in life. People transitioning from high school to college, college to career, single to married, no kids to kids, and for those who are stuck in life. I’ve seen the process move people out of negative addictive habits and into a healthy life. It may challenge people to quit their jobs and follow their passion. I’ve seen the process bring relational stability to one’s life and their family. In each of these cases, the process helped them to wisely navigate some significant life change.
You Know Someone Who is Struggling in Life
For you, your life may be on track and you are doing well. So building a LifeMap may not be for you. Although I would guess as you read through this, you thought of a few people that could benefit from a clearer roadmap for their lives. Those friends and family members are the people that could benefit from building a LifeMap. One of the best ways to help them is to go through the process with them.
Be an accountability partner to them. Help them to wisely answer the questions in the workbook and to create SMART Goals the LifeMap way. Goals fail for many reasons but the top two reasons for many people are lack of accountability and unwise planning. Building a LifeMap with your friend or family member could help change their lives in amazing ways.
Is A LifeMap For You?
With all of that said, is building a LifeMap something you should do? If any of this sounds familiar or you find yourself challenged in any of these ways, LifeMap is for you.
