Feeling behind in life can be a sign that you feel lost in your direction. You are either confused or distracted by which way to go, because of the obstacles that persuade you to lose your way. Remember why you started, why you made this choice in the first place. Remember the reasons that were once more important and more powerful than your fears.
It’s important to understand life is not a race or a competition of any sort. Amidst all the confusion and stress, there is a silver lining in the feeling of falling behind in life. What they don’t tell you is you are actually propelling much faster in life in your speed contrary to what you think others perceive about your life. When you start to feel uneasy and uncomfortable about your situation right now, the urge to change your life is more than powerful. This sense of conviction not only has the strength to pull you out from your episodes of analysis paralysis but also to pave a new way of direction.
If you aspire to create a meaningful legacy in your life, you can’t make it come true unless you start. You can’t dream to live the kind of lifestyle you want to be in if you don’t walk through the mud on rainy days. You can’t harvest the fruit if you don’t endure the scorching heat of the sun while planting. The bottom line is, you can’t proceed to the finish line without taking the first step.
Starting from scratch isn’t always the best part, but it is the most crucial part of the journey. The beginning of something may not be able to determine its outcome but it does say something about how it’s going to go. This doesn’t necessarily mean you must already have everything completely planned out before you start, but it is important to strive to set a mark on your first try.
All successful people — the personalities you idolize, the artists you dream to become one day, the people who inspire you to bet on your abilities, all started somewhere. Contrary to what most people speculate, they have gone through numerous hardships of life because they were not given the privilege to start. Finding and developing their talent was not an easy path, but they chose to grab every opportunity they can to capitalize on what they’re born to do.
