Do You Feel Lost ?
“Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves” — Henry David Thoreau
Some people out there love to play the rule of the advisor and the guru, they will give you tons of tips and they’ll criticize you to make you feel less than them and that you are somehow subhuman.
In magazines, TV and even books; they’ll be specific models for success and how to be successfully-socially accepted beings (5 tips to be smart, 5 ideas to be a billionaire, 10 steps to be rich…and this kind of bullshit).
In fact, the worst thing a person can do is to ignore his own inner voice and to follow blindly others’ expectations. It is a vicious circle, it leads to nowhere but depression.
You don’t have to compare your journey with others, don’t try to copy their paths because simply there’s no clear nor defined patterns to success and no magical formula neither.
If you feel lost right now, your future seems mostly blurry and your heart beats so fast whenever you think about it, then you’re okay; you’re not influenced yet by others and what society want you to become.
This way, you have more chances to become what you really want since it is the perfect time to get disconnected from the chaos, to dig deep down your heart to understand what is your talent and passion.
Once you figure out who really you want to be, start working so hard to achieve it, whatever obstacles and discouraging speeches you might hear.
When you believe in yourself, you become unstoppable.
