Life is a journey that everyone embarked on with little knowledge of whether the destination would be reached or not. We just must pass through life or else life will pass us by. As humans, on this life journey, we can’t see the destination and the road towards same is unclear to many. In most cases, we have heard of what happened on the journey from those who have passed the stages we are yet to reach, but, that is never enough. So, here we will like to map your mind for this journey of life. Hope you don’t mind?
On the journey of life, just like any other journey, you need to take enough provisions along with you. One of such, and the most important provision you’ll need is a sound mind. You need to be open-minded for the instructions will keep coming in on the journey. If someone tell you how to treck a particular stage in life, it’s not advisable to ‘strictly’ follow. Because this path, is full of routes, and although we all are on this journey, our purposes and destinations are different, hence, we are trecking different routes. Don’t forget that the road of life is slippery. So, I will advise that you trek with calmness. No matter what, trek with calmness!
Another thing is for you to know where you’re going. This may sound unnecessary. But, there are people who are on the track of life with no definite knowledge of their destination. Just like a passerby, those people are just taking a walk on this track, for mere exercise and fun. And where such people usually find themselves is not a worthy place. They will be drifting about like a ship without a rudder. So, you should know what destination you would like to end up being.
Knowing your destination is not enough as well, but also know what you need to get there. One common thing that successful people do have, according to my observation of life, is clarity of purpose. They personally know what they want and at early, in earnest, set in action in pursuit of it. Their time never got wasted. You too, need at least that quality to safely pass across this road of life.
Don’t lose focus. Don’t get distracted. Because if you do, it will not only be disastrous, but it’s going to be a ghastly accident. On this road, overtaking is not only allowed, but also highly recommended. When those that know what they want focus on that thing, they put their energies in pursuing it and usually end up having it. The road of life is full of interesting things, interesting people and interesting distractions. So, your goal must be interesting enough, for you not to have time to give attention to any other interesting happenings.
To cap it all, it’s necessary that you understand that the journey of this life is full of Irony; a situation whereby what appears is the opposite of what it actually hold in reality. Rough roads may mean smooth destination; the same way smooth roads may lead to rough destinations. So, beware of excessive comfort for behind it may lie a great discomfort you’ll live to regret. Get better, be ready to face challenges for that’s what makes you a worthy being. Stay connected for you need others in order to actualize your goals. Just don’t pass by uneasiness, face it, break it if you can, it’s usually full of greatness.
Your mind is a world on its own. It’s your world and you’re the ruler therein. So, just like this popular telecommunication buzzwords, I implore you to wisely “Rule Your World”.
