We’re often challenged with what we’re doing in life. Whether in our own business, our relationships or particularly when we are following our passion and are faced with sudden roadblocks that make us question whether or not we are heading in the right direction.
These moments can instantly trigger self-doubt and we find ourselves looking for the exit sign and the door that’s going to lead us back to safety.
When this has happened to me, there has always been one question that has gotten me back on track and helped to remind me whether or not I am heading in the right direction. This is a question that you can apply to anything in your life – whether it’s a change in career to follow your heart, a relationship you might not be sure about or a work decision you need clarity on and that is: does this make me happy?
Here’s the thing, when we are happy, we invite the right things to enter our life. We have a strong sense of clarity and every cell in our body is bursting from excitement. We are presented with opportunities, the right people end up coming our way and new ideas spring to mind that we’d previously not even thought of.
When we are overwhelmed, we become panicked, lose our focus and fail to even recognise the good things that are there in front of us. It becomes such an easy trap to fall into that can quickly become a deep-set pattern.
How we change our attitude is all about how we choose to tune our focus. We are incredibly powerful with our mindset. We can activate our internal switch instantly and the minute we do, we are inviting an entire different possibility to come our way.
Next time you feeling frustrated or experiencing being in a state of overwhelm, ask yourself: will this make me happy?
You will know your answer because you will feel it in every cell of your body and that is the greatest barometer in measuring whether or not you are heading in the right direction.
