Have you ever said to yourself: “I Don’t Know What to Do With My Life”?.
A heap of us, whether young or old, doesn’t have a clue what to do with our lives.
Some psychologists even get clients who at ages 40 and 50 still have not found their niche in life.
There seems to be an underlying question to all this – why am I here, what do I do with my life?
Look at this truth from the Bible – choose to believe it or not – but the Bible states clearly what our purpose in life is. Solomon, the wisest man who lived, discovered that life was futile when he lived only for this world.
He said that life is about honoring God, our maker because we will stand before Him one day.
In saying that, here are some tips to help you work out what is important to you; what can add meaning and purpose to your life.
Life is full of crossroads and choices, but not making any choices can leave you behind at the crossroads for a long time.
So I’ve gone ahead to research 17 life-changing, sure-fire, proven-to-work things to do when you don’t know what to do with your life.
Change the negativity into positivity, and don’t give up.
Because it takes time and effort to get your brain rewired to be more optimistic and confident.
If you can’t trust yourself, then there is no point in asking what to do with your life.
Trusting yourself involves more than just words.
You have to believe that you can be whatever you want to be in life and no one can stop you.
15) Take the Opportunity by Saying Yes
Opportunities abound, and all it takes from you is to say yes, stacking up experience.
Never stop learning.
Remember at the end of the day, and you want to look back satisfied that you made choices and took them with both hands, instead of sitting at home, fearing them and also their outcomes.
Opportunity, they say, comes but once.
So grab the ones that present themselves without somersaulting.
We know what a beautiful place the internet is.
But it’s also essential for you to know your role which means setting boundaries.
Set time aside every day to switch off the smartphones, the laptop, and all the other high-tech stuff and get out and about, meeting up with friends, volunteering, taking in nature, exercising; giving of yourself.
17) Find Joy in Life
Think about the times in your life when you found the most joy.
Was it that summer camp when you were a counselor?
Was it when you were traveling?
We know that joy is part of your internal guidance system telling you that you are on course.
Be a voice and not an echo
Remember, self-pity is a dead-end road.
Make your own choice to travel that direction and stay parked there, or you can do a U-turn and drive out.
Go on, get up, get back on track, and see the positive energies come flowing your way and never say to yourself “I Don’t Know What to Do With My Life” again!
