Is what you’re thinking right?
Are you okay with where you are right now?
Is it where you thought you’d be?
Have you taken responsibility for where you are now?
There are times in life, when we feel that we’re not where we should be. But we are where we are because of just one person. That is ourselves.
However, there will be a number of reasons why you think you’re not where you should be.
It might be because you’re impatient and want things to happen more quickly. It might be because you think you’re not clever or not qualified enough. It might be because you are scared of taking the necessary action. It might be because you don’t know what you need to do. It might be because you think someone else is standing in your way.
Where we are in life is down to the choices we make and our actions. It’s the way we choose to respond to what happens during our life. We decide the course we take based on the perceived consequences, whether they seem positive or negative.
At times, the decision can be easy. Other times, it feels difficult and any decision will lead you to something that feels uncomfortable.
It’s in those times, that having a strong mindset really matters. Being able to make the right decision for you at that moment in time knowing that you’re able to deal with the consequences.
You see, at any single moment we’re exactly where we’re meant to be. Being frustrated or annoyed at where we are is counter-productive. The past cannot be changed.
But, the future is still to be written.
So, acknowledge and accept that you’re exactly where you’re meant to be right now.
I know it’s not easy accepting that we make our reality when we’re not where we want to be. I mean how can that be true?
It’s true because we are in control of how we think, speak and respond. No one can make us do anything.
However, instead of focusing on how life might be unfair and how you’re not happy with how it’s turning out, change your focus.
Focus on where you want to be
Energy flows where attention goes. Stop wasting energy on what you don’t want and start focusing on what you do want. If you’re not sure what that is then try journaling, meditating, going for a walk and even remembering your childhood dreams
Acknowledge your obstacles
Now be honest and list what is stopping you. List everything and everyone. Some of what is on your list you have the power to do something about. Others you’ll just need to accept and then let go of.
Remember we are not responsible for changing the actions of others or how they think, even if we think they are standing in our way and the only way through is to change them. But you have the freedom to change yourself. What stories are you telling yourself that might be stopping you?
Although it sounds simple, believing in yourself is very powerful. It’s about believing that you will get to where you want to go. You need to truly believe, to your core, that you will get to where you want to go. The difference between those who get to where they want to go and those that don’t is down to self-belief.
Take the first step
Then decide what your next best move is, no matter the size, and take action to start you moving in the direction you want to go.
You see, it is up to you to decide what happens next. You may think that that responsibility has been taken by others, and if that is the case unfortunately you have decided to give them that power. So, now you know. Will you keep going down the same route expecting something to change or are you ready for something different?
Which way are you willing to go?
