Normally ambitious and having talents, people who lack direction waste their time and talents. Because there is no clear road map, people tend to drift through life, feeling frustrated and dissatisfied with their lives. This lack of direction can be the result of reaching a cross-road in their lives and not knowing what to do next. Ask yourself these questions:
- Do you become easily bored?
- Have you had numerous careers in your life?
- Are you frustrated, bored and unhappy in life?
- Do you feel that you drift along without direction?
- Do you feel that life is passing you by and you do not know how to re-engage?
DO NOT feel alone. The problem for many people today seems to be that the majority of them live without a sense of purpose. There is no direction in their lives and spent their lives living day to day, trying desperately to find happiness and a sense of worth in who they are and what they are doing. People may very well have dreams and goals, but without direction, they are not going to be able to fulfill these desires. Why? Because they do not know what they want.
Anything that causes stress, anger or sadness is an obstacle that is delaying you from achieving your goal and needs to be ended. This not only means a change in the way you think, but also in the way you live everyday life. From getting the proper rest, eating the proper foods, getting exercise and do something that you truly love doing, everyday. And give it 100% of your time, energy and commitment. You will not get those things your desire until you know what they are and how to reach them.
Every single action you take and every bit of energy you spend should be contributing towards achieving your goals in life.
To finish up here so you can be to reflect on your new direction, here is what you need to do:
Sit and reflect quietly and try to define what you want out of the time you have left. What do you really want out of life and how will you get them? And give 100% to every step you will make to reach your destination. It may take time and it may be difficult to focus, but the effort will be well worth your your commitment.
