We are all born with a unique life map. A plan for our lives that we realize when we become adults. We can know we reached this point when we make conscious and independent decisions. When this happens, our life plan gets activated and opportunities arise accordingly, except if we aren’t ready. There can be big traps on our path; it all comes down to becoming truly self-reliant.
When you aren’t independent enough, life can become challenging and you may realize that you are just drifting, or feel like you are living someone else’s life. Living this way doesn’t allow you to realize your true life plan. Why is it important to live what you came here for? Because we are here to learn and evolve. And we always need and should want to learn something new.
When You Don’t Enjoy What You Do
When you get off your path, don’t have your life plan within reach, you should readjust your senses. Chances are, you got so busy with other things that you forgot about your goals and the things you wanted to learn. So, you should start evaluating how much you enjoy the things that you are doing. Can you learn from them, and are these lessons adding to you? We all have a life goal, but if you aren’t living it, you shouldn’t get discouraged.
You should find a goal that makes you happy. Like helping others, feeling content with yourself, learning skills to improve yourself, living by faith, learning to control your mind and get rid of your fears, and so on… What is my goal in life? Everyone asks this question at a certain point in life. Some people earlier, and some on their deathbed. If we would all strive to live our life plans and could make them happen, there would be greater order in the world.
Seeing Your Goal
If you are just trying to see and realize your goals, it is hard to achieve them. What matters is that there are people who realize their goals and learn from their experience, it doesn’t matter who will become a soldier, lawyer, or teacher… The worst thing can be when you forget living, let alone realizing your goal. If you don’t move ahead, life cannot happen, and you can regret not experiencing things.
You shouldn’t want to keep figuring out what your life goal is or asking this constantly. What should you do instead? Take action, try different things. Start something new today. By going through it, you can find a route that better works for you. A happier path in your health, learning, relationship, faith, or whatever. Don’t forget, living is moving; if you do not move, you don’t honor your life and its opportunities to develop yourself and help others who cross your path do the same.
Strive to Live Authentically
When you make new friends, it should come from your heart. When you pray, do your best to be present. If sports make you happy, give your all into that. Remember that whatever you want to achieve, you make it happen through your body. Therefore, you can only become great at something, if you learn to listen to your body and are ready to work together. Each pain is a signal, and we are so good at neglecting it. Because we seem to be weak and problematic.
But this leads to numbness. Does it solve anything when you learn to suppress your feelings? Just because you wanted to appear strong and painless. Where does this state lead? Can you live in an emotionally suppressed body? Yes, of course, but only much shorter. When your car or washing machine breaks down, you contact the repair service immediately.
We only don’t do so with our bodies but wait until the problem is really serious. When your body signals, you need to ask for help. Help from a doctor, masseur, a chiropractor… Anything answering to the signals of your body can be helpful. Don’t be afraid of what’s going to happen if it turns out that there’s a major problem; the sooner the better and the easier to help.
