Before you give-up on your goal or decide your life is worthless, there’s a few things to keep in mind.
In our quest of purpose, goal achievement, adventure, or even plain old happiness we can get lost. It’s like we were going from our house to a good friend’s down the street and in between during out daydreaming we realize we’ve entered the wilderness. No idea where we are!
It’s that shattering moment in the pit of your stomach of nervousness and frustration on our mind. We thought it was all planned out, had the right steps, and here we are at who knows where.
You know? You want to pull your hair out and just say WTF!
So that’s why I’m here to remind you. That getting lost thing, happens more than you realize.
When you’re in the wilderness, lost, and looking for help. You aren’t the first and most certainly won’t be the last. To keep yourself grounded, remember this about yourself
- You’re searching for an answer and reading this post, it’s all a part of the process
- Just because your lost, doesn’t mean you’ve disappeared. It just means you need to understand where you’re currently at. Don’t just retreat.
- It’s been proven that when most people feel lost and turnaround or give-up, that’s when the next achievement is right around the corner. Most people just don’t realize it. The successful continue to push forward even though they can’t see the full staircase.
- Trust yourself. The fact that you’re thinking about this and trying to find the answers means that you’re on track.
I’ll admit that at times I felt lost with this site in the beginning . I got messages from people stating how much I’ve helped them and interest has increased on the daily insights page, but in my quest to achieve more and help others I reach the point where I seem to be right in the heart of the wilderness.
Although I have continued to move forward, I could settle and know exactly where I’m at and what to expect. That wouldn’t be staying true to myself though. So when I feel lost and am trying to figure out how to achieve what I really want I have to remember: Although I’m exploring, sometimes I need to gain a little ground and then regain my foundations, and repeat. Continuing to focus on the core of this site.
Helping people wake-up from how they’ve been taught to live, and do it in a way they truly believe in.
“If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now. And when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.”
