5 Questions You Should Ask Yourself When You're Feeling Lost

3:32 PM

Every experience – positive and negative, strength and weakness, love and hate, health and sickness – adds to your personal growth.  You will never be called upon to face any challenge which you do not possess the strength to overcome.

But there are great enemies: anxiety, fear, worry, etc.  These inner demons set up conditions which disturb and prevent the clear thinking you require.

Calmness, confidence, receptiveness – with these your spirit can flourish; with these you will find the answers you want from day to day, and even more importantly, you will find the right questions.

So when stress and unhappiness begins weighing down on you, take a deep breath, clear your mind and ask yourself…
 
1. “Should I turn around?” – Sometimes when it feels like you’re running into one dead end after another, it’s actually a sign that you’re not on the right path. U-turns are allowed in life.  Remember, no one wins a game of chess by only moving forward; sometimes you have to move backward to put yourself in a position to win. 

2. “Is it time to write the next chapter?” – If you’re feeling like you’ve been stuck in the same negative setting for too long, then consider writing a new chapter of your life.

3. “What can I do now to change my situation?” – When you blame everyone and everything else, you give up your power to change.  So don’t get too upset with other people and peripheral situations.  They are powerless without your reaction.  Take full accountability of your life; even your mistakes.  External forces may be able to knock you down on occasion, but keeping you there is a whole different ball game – keeping you there is a choice only you can make.

4. “What have I been doing wrong all along?” – Admitting your mistakes and weaknesses does not diminish your strength, it shows your courage and development.  Sometimes you have to shut up, swallow your pride and accept that you were wrong.  It’s not giving up, it’s growing up. :)

5. “What other questions should I be asking?” – The most common and harmful addiction in the world is the draw of comfort.  Don’t be someone who never asks, “how?” or never pulls back further to ask, “why?”  Too many people don’t ask these questions because they know the answers would require substantial disruption to their comfort zone, and they don’t want to endure it.  But that’s how the human mind grows.  When your mind is stretched with new questions and the resulting experiences, it never shrinks back to its previous dimensions – you are forever more competent and capable.

You can always try to wait for the perfect moment, the perfect this, the perfect that... But if you already know that the situation you are in is terribly wrong or unacceptable or you are already on the wrong path, then might as well let it go. You cannot correct YOUR mistake by pointing out the mistakes of others.

Your turn! Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions once in your life?
