4 Reasons Why You don’t Know what You Want

4 Reasons Why You don’t Know what You Want

1. You have been lucky; you did not have been on the bottom of the bottom

There is an unwritten law; most successful people went through hardships.

When you find your self on the bottom of the bottom, where you think nothing will ever lift you up again, you find something you were not looking for: yourself.

When we are at that place, nobody is with us; nobody supports us, nobody tries to lift you up, nobody gives a shit.
And when nobody gives a shit, nobody cares how you act.

Then, it is easier to be yourself.

If you haven’t found yourself, being at the bottom is the time when you think about life.

“I found myself when the rest got lost.”

You start thinking about why you did end up at that place.

Some persons may come into your mind who are responsible, but in the end, you will find out that yourself are the one to blame, that you are responsible.

Then you will be ready to find yourself and to start asking the right questions. After finding yourself, you find your purpose.

2. You haven’t read books about finding yourself and finding your dreams

“The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho

“The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

“The Why Café” by John Strelecky

“Tuesdays with Morrie” by Mitch Albom

You very probably heard talking people about one of these books.

Go and grab one today if you haven’t read one of these books.

If you don’t, promise me, never to complain again that you don’t know what you want!

3. You have read one of the books above, but you don’t act on the gained knowledge

Did you read one of the books above?

Probably while reading, they got you to think.

You thought about life, about yourself, about your dreams.

They left you with a gut feeling, that life has more to offer than how life is looking right now?

You were happy after you ended the book, good to go, ready to crush it and turn your dreams into reality?

How many days did that feeling stay?

2 days?

3?

A week?

And now?

How many days passed in which you didn’t act on your knowledge?

You know everything you need to know. It’s the time to act on the gained knowledge.

Just reading them won’t change anything.

So go, and follow your gut. Take time out of each day and think about the things you want to do in life.

Don’t rush it, don’t put pressure on yourself, take your time and
think!

4. You are searching for sense of life through a cell phone screen

Ironic – I know.

You are reading through a screen right now.

But, as you are reading this, you take the first step to stop following this trap – the cellphone screen.

Logic, one of my favorite rappers put out that line, and it blew my mind.

“You are searching for a sense of life through a cellphone screen.”

In my opinion, that describes our generation and humanity.

Don’t get me wrong. Smartphones are beautiful; they connect the world. They are the reason why you can read this text.

But please be honest, don’t you spend too much time looking on a cellphone screen?

I do.

A few months ago, I lived 7 days without a mobile phone. It was not my decision. My cell phone broke. It was an experience I don’t want to miss.

Most of us spend too much time watching a cellphone screen.

This time you could take and read one of the great books above, or search for other great books (please just let me know when you found a great one! 😊)

Make an experiment.

After you finished reading this text.

Take your phone, maybe answer your partner and tell them about the experiment you will make.
When they know.

Get dressed, in case you are naked.

Stand up from the toilet (in case you are reading on the toilet, who doesn’t?)

Switch your phone off, or at least in flight mode. Then put it in another room.

And go out. Without your phone!

You will feel naked while having cloth on.

Try it.

The first minutes will be awkward.

Automatically, You will touch your pocket, searching for the cellphone, and won’t find one.

When you then run home, because you need to check it, I am sorry, then you are lost and probably never will find your dreams. In case, please go to a doctor and get help to fix your addiction.

When you don’t run home, after a few minutes, you will feel free.

And relaxed, chilled, happy, finally you have time you don’t have to answer a message, ultimately, the time you don’t check Insta, Twitter, Snapchat, Facebook, and co.

Finally time for yourself.

Time to discover the world.

Time to discover yourself.

Just when all the noises are shut down, we can hear the noise inside of us. The whispering voice which is trying to be heard and fed. Our dreams.
