Most of us like to think that we know exactly where our life is headed. Whether it be pure optimism or just sheer ignorance...when we think/act this way, we're really giving up control of our life's journey.

In order to figure out where we're headed, we must first figure out where exactly we're at in the present moment. This makes it easier to plan for the LONG road ahead. When I say LONG, I really mean Looooong!

A key to gaining a sense of direction that will lead you to success is developing a long-term perspective. What I mean by that is you have to constantly imagine the kind of person you want to become along with the goals (This is where the journey begins; by setting goals for yourself) you want to achieve. This practice helps you come back to the present moment, where you will understand what needs to be done NOW in order for your future wishes to take place.

Don't get caught up 'Thinking' that everything is okay and that you're moving in the right direction (or moving at all for that matter), instead focus on how you are truly feeling about your current actions.

We all have a lot of things going on and sometimes we're not necessarily the best at setting them up in an organized manner. It could be simple things like a catch-up meeting I’ve set with a friend you haven’t seen in a long time or declaring taxes for a new business you just set up. Yeah, both of those are examples of the many things that can potentially make your stress levels increase. 

It takes a different mindset to feel that way… It takes being “Mindful” to accept that it’s not a negative thing.

Know what is going on in your head to help you better understand what is going on around you, and better yet let it assist you in figuring out how to deal with whatever those different things may be.

"Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards."

Søren Kierkegaard

Take time to reflect. It might be the number one thing to help you grow forward.

Are you tired? Are you scared? Are you happy?
How do you feel about your emotions, your body, your mind?

Questions we don’t ask ourselves enough.

Questions some of us never ask at all.

 

Self-Awareness is a MUST
If you want to figure out where you’re headed, it’s easier to start with where you are right at this moment. It gives you a better sense as to everything you need to pack up with you for the journey ahead. Digging deeper to understand the person you are or the person you are becoming can only be done by you.

So…
Find out where you need to go (set yourself some goals).
Understand where you currently are physically/mentally (Self-Awareness).
Learn about your self (mind/body/soul),
Challenge the status-quo and recreate things that are Innovative,
Add Value…understand it, appreciate it, bring It,
Last but certainly not least…laugh, smile, dance…whatever!… Just Enjoy it all.
