The universe is vast and it can be very hard to find your way. If you are craving direction, you may feel listless, frustrated and even depressed. It can be very difficult to get anywhere while you’re staring off into the horizon. To find direction in your life is to put your feet on the ground and starting exploring the options all around you. Purpose must come about naturally.
Accept that you may not be able to tell with absolute certainty that a your choice is the right choice. Embrace the fact that the direction you choose may not be perfect. Remember, nothing is permanent. Time is constant direction as the life of a human goes. You can course correct as you go. You can’t know which adjustments you’ll need to make until you get started.
The important thing is that you are engaging with your life. Don’t just sit back and watch time go by. Live passionately even if you are never absolutely certain.
There is no telling if anything will work out. You cannot predict exactly where any given choice will take you. You may fail. You may succeed. Take a chance on yourself. Follow your passions. Life is short!
Take small steps to start with
You don’t have to quit your job or drop out of school. These leaps could be wonderful, forcing that lead to understanding yourself and discovering your passions. Firstly look for ways to test out your ideas in your everyday life.
Consider volunteering opportunities that allow you to get a better sense of what it’s like to work in that field.
Commit to a direction
You don’t have to be absolutely certain that it is the right path. Trust yourself. Trust that you will be able to escape any given set of circumstances if you no longer feel that you are moving forward. Make a choice and see where it takes you. Throw yourself into something that inspires a flare of passion within you.
Commit to a Direction
Don’t be afraid to make sacrifices. Don’t be afraid to commit. No commitment is permanent. You can always drop out and change direction.
Work hard to be present
If you are always halfway in and halfway out of commitment, you won’t be able to say that you have given your direction a fair go. Stop your doubts for a time and focus on the joys of doing exactly what you are doing.
- Ask yourself:
- “Am I growing in the ways that I want to be growing?”
- “Am I happy? Am I satisfied?”
- “Does this direction feel worthwhile?”
- “What can I do to make things better?”
