Have you ever stopped and thought to yourself, “Am I doing the right thing with my life?” But this is kind of an unfair question to ask yourself because how are you really supposed to know what is right and what isn’t?
The truth of the matter is, no path is the wrong path necessarily. Because if you are on a specific path, than it is apparent that there is a reason you have chosen that path and therefore you must learn a lesson from the route that it takes you.
But to consider what is right for you might not be right for someone else. This is the part where life gets a little bit tricky.
You see, we are taught to live life a certain way. Growing up, most of us are told to go to school graduate, then go to more school or work a job. When you venture out in search of what makes you most happy it is easy to get lost in all the other options available to you. Sometimes your vision becomes clouded and you take a path based out of the wrong intentions. This leads to living a life doing a job that you hate or marrying the wrong someone.
We are all unique in our own way, so don’t be afraid to spread your wings and break free from the system. Don’t be afraid to venture out and begin paving a way for your life, the way that you want it to be.
Life shouldn’t consist of working countless hours doing something you hate only so you can have fun on the weekends. Life is meant to be an adventure from start to finish.
When you are searching for the things that make you happy, be sure you are looking in the right places. Sometimes the answer is right in front of us all along.
Are You Happy?
The easiest question to ask yourself is whether you are happy or not. Don’t lie to yourself on this one. If you are truly unhappy about something in your life then that is a glaring indication that there is disharmony somewhere in your life. This unhappiness has been created from something in your life, so there is always a way to fix it.
Seek to discover what is causing you to feel uneasy in your life and take steps to resolve the issue, whether it is with yourself or another person. Every day you wake up is a miracle, so there is no reason you to be unhappy in your life.
Where Does Your Money Come From?
Chances are, if you live in this society, you probably have some way of making money. How do you make money exactly?
The way in which you make money plays a key factor in determining whether you are on the right path or not. The reason is because it is such a key component of our lives that it has to affect us in some way.
Make sure your job is something you love to do. It should be something that you are able to pour all your passion into.
As I said, we are all different so this is something you must ask yourself, and be sure you are being honest with yourself. You can lie to others, but no matter how hard you try, you can never lie to yourself.
So be sure the job you have is for you. It’s very tempting to take a job that pays well, but if this job doesn’t make you happy then don’t do it. THE MONEY IS NOT WORTH YOUR HAPPINESS.
Get Out of your Comfort Zone
In life we are often faced with challenges that we don’t want to overcome. There are a variety of reasons why this could be, maybe we don’t want to do it, maybe we are putting it off, or maybe we are just scared.
When referring to your comfort zone I am talking about the place in your life that makes you feel comfortable. It is the little bubble that you have created over time so you don’t have to experience the stress, anxiety and fear of trying something new.
Let me give you an example. Let’s say you want to start your own business. At the moment you have the chance to work for a company that will help you gain the knowledge you need in order to start your own business; so you take the job. After taking the job you get used to the steady paycheck coming in and you become a bit relaxed on creating your own business due to the hefty paycheck you are receiving each week. Over time you lose momentum towards creating your own business and you get comfortable working this ‘temporary’ job that you took. It has now become your permanent source of income and you are no longer working towards creating your own business. You my friend, have fallen victim to the comfort zone.
The right path is not always clear-cut. Sometimes you might be so certain you are on the right path until life hits you in the face with a new opportunity. And just like that, life has shown you the true direction you are supposed to go. The best advice I can give to help you discover the right path is to be an open book. Be open to new possibilities. Don’t close yourself off from a possible opportunity that could change your life forever.
But no matter what path you take, the universe will always see to it that you end up the direction that you are supposed to go. In case you are having trouble discovering the path that is right for you, check out TheCodyCodex for tips and tricks on how to live your dream life today.
