What To Do When You Don’t Know What To Do

Two years into the lockdown, how you doing? With the landscape changing at an alarming rate, many find themselves challenged as to how to navigate these unchartered waters. Redundancies, bankruptcies, illness, loss of life, take the vaccine, don’t take the vaccine, life and living can appear overwhelming and ladened with unsurmountable obstacles.  

It has been said every cloud has a silver lining however in order to find the silver lining you have to be willing to persevere, take action and understand that quitting is not an option. Viewing the current challenges of life as opportunities can provide a doorway to create something from nothing. Tackling that distant dream of a better life, career, business, home or family can be the catalyst for unlocking that conundrum of “What to do when you don’t know what to do.” 

Don’t despair there’s help at hand. Understand that your current situation is not your final destination. Use this week to identify what’s urgent over what’s important. What motivates you, what your passionate about, and what it is that gets your creative juices flowing. If that seems a bit of a stretch ask a few close friends what it is that you do well. Armed with this new information you’ll be ready to take your first steps to discover your way forward.

 However, for this process to work you have to leave the past behind you. If you don’t, you’ll never make room for the present and the future. Leaving the past behind you doesn’t mean that you don’t care about a person or situation anymore. It just means that you’re prepared to adapt to life’s ever-changing realities and appreciate what everyone and the situation have taught you.

Remind yourself if what is being presented to you does not bring peace, profit or purpose then don't give it your time, energy or attention. It’s time to start working from your power (What you have control over) and not your pain (what controls you). Believe it or not, you have more control than you think. When you start exercising more control over what you say to yourself (Positive affirmations) by default you will attract more positivity into your life.

Life is a cycle and some cycles need to be shut down because they no longer serve a purpose. The trick is to know when to close the door, change the tune and turn over a new leaf. Stop being who you were so you can be who you’re meant to be. You were born an original don’t die a copy. Be brave enough to burn your bridges.  That way you have no choice but to keep moving forward.
