Lost Your Way: Here are some Tips to Regain Control of your Life.
By Abdul Rahman Mohammed
There is no human being on this planet that goes through living feeling up 100% of the time. Additionally, nobody on this planet is happy 100% of the time. If you have lost your way in life: Here are some tips to regain control of your life.
We all have low moments. We all suffer setbacks, we all get caught up in things we shouldn’t and, we all lose our way. Moreover, some of us remain lost forever and, some of us find our way back to the path.
We are destined to travel. The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts.
Whether you stay lost or find that path is a choice. If you beat yourself down or lift yourself, it is a choice and, that choice starts in your mind. Your reality is not what has happened but how you frame what has happened. Change your thoughts and, you will change your life. If you have lost your way in life: Here are some tips to regain control of your life.
Here are four ways to get back on track whenever you’ve lost your way.
1. Write down your reason!
Why? When did you know the reason why you need no external motivators? Why must you do what you do?
Why must you succeed or get healthy? To develop yourself, set a positive example. For instance, why must you earn money?
Change your attitude, strengthen your relationships. Ask yourself who are you doing it for, why must you keep fighting; there is a reason. Once you find that reason, it will light a fire under everything you do. It will get you up early, and if you up late, it will inspire you to push harder, fight longer, try a different way, find a way, to never give up.
You’ll still have low moments, but you’ll never stay there. Find that reason.
2. Know that life is short.
Understanding at a deep level that life is short and you only get one shot at this human experience can be one of the most potent ways to get you back on track.
It’s not a recipe for recklessness or craziness; it’s a knowing that life is short and everything you are stressing about likely doesn’t matter. In the end, it finally takes the heaviness of almost every problem. Let it go and focus on doing the things you love following your passions.
Surrounding yourself with great people, be grateful for the life you have inside you. Be thankful for the time you have left, and make the most of that time. Ask yourself how do I want to be remembered?
3. Feed your mind with something positive and powerful.
Consume as much positive transformative, and influential self-development material as possible. However you do it books, audio, videos, mentors, it doesn’t matter how. It only matters that you do.
When you feed your mind with powerful content every day, it is unlikely to lose your way. You lose your road by getting caught up in the negative, like most people on this planet.
Whether it is about receiving negative news or experiencing petty conflicts with others: you find your way by doing what most people don’t like doing. That will lead you to self-development.
Be curious and open with your self-development. Seek to learn, grow and develop yourself in all the areas of your life.
Ask yourself what you would love to improve in your life by using your skills or traits.
Seek the best mentors and skills on those chosen topics. You can also feed your mind with your inner content: this is gratitude. There is no more powerful force on earth than gratitude and, if you are feeling it deep and practising it every day, it will ensure you remain in a powerful positive state.
Science has proven physical exercise can lower depression, reduce stress and release endorphins or happy chemicals from your brain.
Next time you lose your way, get to the gym. Also, go for a run and release that tension somewhere positive. Do it daily and continue to grow your physical strength. Your physiology and posture also have a lot to do with how you feel. You will feel very different by standing tall with your shoulders back as putting a big cheesy grin on your face.
Take notes of your posture when you are down, be conscious of it. Learn all you can about it and make the needed changes.
To summarize, I would say that keep it simple in difficult situations. Moreover, know the reasons why you should work. Remember to enjoy those situations: life is short for a human being to experience everything, learn as much as possible from your experiences. Always feed your mind with positive content all the time, seek blessed knowledge. At last, don’t forget to exercise, don’t forget your Health. Stay healthy throughout your life; thus, you will always be ready to travel and experiment with different things in life and be active.
