Go through life with the courage and determination to win and succeed.
I have been having conversations with a lot of people in my circle lately, and the untold story I keep hearing from them is: How do I figure my life out? What should I be doing now? What should I be doing next? These questions show that many people want to move forward, achieve great feats and live a fulfilling life. And this is good to know. But then, they wonder, how to go about this?
I want to believe that figuring out what to do with life differs for individuals. For some people, this might not seem like a big deal, because their background and environment creates for them an already defined life path. But for others, it might not be the same, as they have to think through what they want to get out of life. Anyway, whichever party you belong to, there will still be a need for you to make a decision on what you want to achieve with your life, and work towards it.
If you are like me and are still trying to figure out what next to do, then these things below will be of great help:
Think retrospectively about the things you have achieved
This exercise is good, as it will reveal to you your areas of strength, areas that you can leverage on into the future. Moreso, it will help you see the things you have achieved in the past, and that you are capable of repeating. This will mean thinking your way through. In your personal space, carve out the time to sit and think about what you can do with your life.
Relationships are one of the best gifts we can ever get as humans. One of the biggest goals I have achieved in life came through my interaction with a friend. It was just a normal conversation we were having that eventually gave me my light bulb moment. I have found that when we relate with people (physically or virtually), there is a lot of exchange of ideas and information that can help in pointing us in the direction we need to take into the future.
Take it a step at a time
The beauty of life is that it is in stages and phases. It is as we keep moving and living that a lot of things will be revealed to us. The things that look grey and confusing to you right now won’t be so forever. Start taking steps with what you know and very soon, you will start figuring out what you should be doing with your life.
In conclusion, we all have a personal race to run in life, and that’s what we will be rewarded for. Go through life with the courage and determination to win and succeed. Keep taking steps and actions on what you know to do now, and no sooner than later, you will be able to figure out what next you can and should be doing.
