I love this phrase because is so simple but at the same, it has so much to say about, especially to our lives. We struggle so much to find our future because everyone wants to be successful, living off what we always dreamed of. But life sometimes guides us to a different direction, sometimes we can get lucky sometimes not. So it's important that we're ready for whatever comes next.
We all know theoretically, our life was meant to us do our full education from high school to University (and maybe master & PH) and after finding a job that could give us stability to our lives... Most of the people actually complete those essentials but then they ask themselves what next? what's the next step? is this the final stage?
This state of not knowing what to do next applies to all of us, at any age and at different stages of our lives. Whether we are heading off to university, graduating, choosing our career path, recovering from heart break, being unemployed, or entering into retirement, we all have a point in our lives where we don’t know what to do next.
The answers usually come very differently according to where we are at in our lives. A young graduate will focus on answering this question in relation to their future and choosing the right career. A person entering into retirement will ask the question in the hope of solving the issue of doing something that has value in their life and a young mother recently divorced will be asking this question in the hope that she can find an answer that will enable her to survive another day.
Take Action To Wake Up Your Conscious Mind
“Nobody is going to do your life for you. You have to do it yourself, whether you’re rich or poor, out of money or making it, the beneficiary of ridiculous fortune or terrible injustice. And you have to do it no matter what is true. No matter what is hard. No matter what is unjust, sad, sucky things befall you. Self pity is a dead end road. You can make the choice to drive down it. It’s up to you to decide to stay parked there or to turn around and drive out” – Cheryl Stryed.
Life isn’t predictable and the solutions we seek to answer our life questions don’t always come nicely. There are no rules to follow and we have to work hard to define our life pathway. Waking our conscious minds to accept our reality, embrace change and the unpredictability of life, is one step toward finding out what we need to do next in our life.
Seek The Wisdom and Knowledge of Others Who Have Been There Before.
“The more extensive a man’s knowledge of what has been done, the greater will be his power of knowing what to do” – Benjamin Disraeli
I like to read other people’s stories about how they lived their lives, their life philosophies and how they overcame their challenges in life. I find that their stories inspire and motivate me especially when I am unsure about what to do next in my life. These stories helped me to build my knowledge base so that I could sort out the confusion in my mind and in my heart, as to what I should do next. I have read many books, however, for me, the two most inspiring books that I have read that helped me gain clarity and purpose in my life are Nelson Mandela’s book “The Long Walk to Freedom.
"If you don’t know what to do next in your life consider these strategies I have shared. It is a tough journey but it is also rewarding, in that you will discover your life purpose and your passion. You will know what you need to do in your life and the actions you need to take to get there!"
