There are times in life our especially in our professional career, when everything seems to be upside down. After trials and tribulations, it always seems that there is no way out, like the only door to be taken is the “quit” door. During those dark times we negatively question ourselves, tempt to get closer to the wrong people, feel unsuccessful, and worst loose faith on ourselves. Whatever reason led you to that sorry path, whether is a promotion you can’t seem to have, a project you have hard time to accomplish, a solution you don’t seem to find, here are 3 easy steps to help you get your life back up.
- KNOW WHY
- MAKE A DECISION
Decision is about commitment. The decision should create within you a burning desire to charge forward no matter the outcome.
Here is what American author and speaker Brian Tracy has to say about that:
One of the reasons for massive time wastage, and failure in life, is the inability or unwillingness to cut your losses. Instead, you should continually remind yourself: It doesn’t matter where you’re coming from; all that really matters is where you’re going.A major time waster is an investment in your ego. You make a decision, or a commitment of time, money, or emotion, that is not successful. Then, because of your ego, you are unwilling to admit that you made a mistake, that you were wrong, and that your decision has turned out to be in error. You then invest an enormous amount of time, emotion, and often money to cover up the fact that you made a mistake. You justify and rationalize, refuse to face the facts, and you often make yourself physically ill.Learn to take control of your ego, rather than letting your ego take control of you. Accept that you are not perfect. The unwillingness to admit error keeps people locked in unhappy and unsatisfying situations year after year.Once you have admitted a mistake, you no longer need to explain or justify yourself. You can then get on with the rest of your life. You can make new decisions and choose new directions. You can focus your special talents and abilities on doing things that can have a great future for you.
- TAKE ACTION
Tony Robbins says: if there is no massive action then you haven’t truly decided yet. So many people spend so much time planning, talking, dreaming, and never take the road to action. Yet it doesn’t how could your plan is, it doesn’t matter how good your excuse for not taking action is, if there no action, there is accomplishment. (period!)Here is another question: Do you currently love what you do? Only a small percentage of people love what they do, and these people are always the happiest, the most satisfied, and usually, the highest paid in every field.You can tell if you are spending your time and your life at the right job by examining your attitude toward your job and your future. Do you like what you are doing enough to want to be the very best at it? If the job is right for you, not only do you want to get better and better at that job, but you very much admire those people who are at the top of your field. If you find that you have no desire to excel in your field, this is a good sign that it’s probably not the right job for you.Would you like to continue doing your job for the next twenty years? Do you find your job challenging and fulfilling? Can you hardly wait to get to work on Monday morning, and do you hate to leave on Friday evening? All successful people can answer “yes” to these questions. Unsuccessful people invariably answer “no”.One of your primary responsibilities to yourself is to select the kind of work that you enjoy and are best suited to do.
