What To Do If You Are Lost In Life: How To Get Back On Track Quickly
Everyone expects instant success, a happy family life, a successful career or business, the perfect partner, and financial freedom. Is it a reality? Often no and the reason why is they lose their way or don’t know what they want. The solution – a road map to help you find out where you are, where you want to go and the best way to get there.
Let me explain.
Ever been to a shopping mall you are unfamiliar with? Chances are the first thing you do is find a map. On the map is a little sign with an arrow that says… “You are Here!” Feeling relieved, you know exactly where you are and begin to orientate yourself. You then decide where you want to go and plan how you will get there.
Some people are blessed with an internal map, they know where they are, where they want to go and intrinsically know how to get there. They have their destiny all mapped out. Their internal map guides them in their daily life; their careers, friendships, marriages, and even business dealings. They have a clearly defined vision for their future and created goals that support their vision.
People like this are also blessed with guiding principles that help them succeed in all aspects of their life. They have well-crafted values and make decisions based on these values. They have this innate sense of who they are, what they stand for, where they are headed, and how they will get there.
For most people, this is not the case.
Where is your focus?
Consider this sentence. “I never said he stole the money.” Now say the sentence 7 times putting an emphasis on the words in capitals.
I NEVER said he stole the money. I never SAID he stole the money. I never said HE stole the money. I never said he STOLE the money. I never said he stole THE money. I never said he stole the MONEY.
When you put an emphasis on a different word in this sentence, you completely change the meaning. It’s like putting a comma in the wrong place. When this happens, the whole sentence becomes screwed up. Often you aren’t even aware that you put the emphasis on the wrong word or the comma in the wrong place until someone points it out to you.
- Imagine a chef leaving out one secret ingredient, it changes the taste of the entire dish.
- Imagine a doctor failing to notice a suspicious mole on your back and it turns into melanoma.
- Imagine an actor failing to deliver a critical line in a play – it changes the whole essence of the scene.
- Imagine a detective failing to notice a critical piece of evidence and it leads to the arrest of an innocent person.
For you, it may be failing to notice one bad habit that holds you back and prevents you from succeeding. Metaphorically speaking, putting a comma in the wrong place, placing the emphasis on a wrong word and suddenly your future takes on a different course. If this happens, how do you get back on track?
The question is – are you lost right now?
Are you currently lost?
Sometimes you don’t realize you are lost until someone points it out to you. and puts you on the right track.
Ever walked into a maze? It can be so confusing even to the point where you become lost and you need help getting out. Once you are safely out of the maze you are surprised at how simple the solution was all along. Often it’s your blind spot that’s holding you back. Finding the right coach, online program, mentor model or even a book can help you identify where and why you got lost.
How to get back on track
The Destiny Train is a model for building the momentum you need to get the results you want. What makes the Destiny Train model so powerful is that it becomes your personal coach, mentor, guide, and teacher.
The first element of the Destiny Train guides you on how to create a compelling VISION for the future that keeps you inspired to face any challenges that come your way.
The second element of the Destiny Train is your VALUES. Your values are your moral compass and vision is your guiding light in everything you do from career choices to choosing a partner in life to how you conduct yourself when no one is looking.
The third element of the Destiny Train is your goals. Your goals are the fuel or driving force that propels you forward. Many people start with goals. Goals alone won’t get you there because in this model what is missing is the engine room and guiding light leading the way. A train won’t go far without an engine.
The fourth element of the Destiny Train is your belief system. If you have good self-esteem and believe you will succeed you will. If you have poor self-esteem and don’t believe you will succeed – you won’t. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy.
The element of the Destiny train is the choices you make. Make good choices then, of course, you will have good outcomes. Make poor choices and you create poor outcomes. The reason you make poor choices is fear. You are afraid to step outside your comfort zone where the opportunities in life lie.
The sixth element of the Destiny Train is to take action. Having goals or making plans without implementing them leads to a dead end. It means nothing if you fail to follow through. Procrastination is a theft of time and a major reason why you fail to reach your potential.
The seventh stage of the Destiny Train is the results you get. If you follow each stage around the Destiny Train Track you will realize your vision, reach your goals, and achieve the level of success you deserve.
If at any point you do derail – it’s very simple, just get back on the track where you came off and continue your journey.
If driving across the country and you take a wrong turn, if you have a map or GPS in your car, it’s easy to find your way back to the right road. Think of The Destiny Train as your own personal GPS system to guide you towards your future vision.
