Ways to Change Your Life if You’re Feeling Lost

Shift your focus to something other than your problems.

“Love people who hate you. Pray for people who have wronged you. It won’t just change their life… it’ll change your life.” – Mandy Hale

Change what you can in a positive manner, even if it’s just something small.

“Small shifts in your thinking, and small changes in your energy, can lead to massive alterations of your end result.” – Kevin Michel

Let it start with the way you think, all change begins inside of our minds.

“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.” – Albert Einstein

Know there are things in life that you can’t change, accept those things and focus your energies on the things you can influence.

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”  – Lao Tzu

Realize we aren’t meant to understand everything, and that’s okay!

“Do I contradict myself? Very well, then, I contradict myself; I am large – I contain multitudes.” – Walt Whitman

Allow yourself to be open to new ideas, you can’t achieve change in life by holding onto the things that have already failed to provide positive results.

“The snake which cannot cast its skin has to die. As well the minds which are prevented from changing their opinions; they cease to be mind.” – Frederich Nietzsche

Learn all you can, read, take classes, search the internet for information, talk to people, take notes, because learning is the foundation upon which you can build a brighter, stronger future.

“Change is the end result of all true learning.”  – Leo F Buscaglia

Why We Get Addicted to Feeling Lost

Logically, no one wants to feel lost in life, but once we have fallen into that type of destructive cycle, we often end up remaining stuck and wondering why we can’t break free and stop feeling lost.

Just like we can get addicted to feeling good,  we can get caught in a pattern that leaves us feeling lost.ven though it’s a negative pattern and a feeling, it can become our “normal” and we can end up (subconsciously) recreating our lost feelings over and over.

Even though feeling lost develops as a negative pattern and is an unpleasant feeling, over time it can become our “normal” and we can end up (subconsciously) recreating our lost feelings… over and over and over.

What Does an Addiction to Feeling Lost Do to You?

Feeling lost is basically letting a sense of failure take over, and it gives us a sense of having failed ourselves – and the more times the cycle  of loss recurs, the more the let-down feelings intensify.

My 6 Favorite Tips for Breaking an Addiction to Feeling Lost

As someone who spent years – decades actually – feeling lost, and who eventually found a way to break the cycle, I would like to share a few simple things that made all the difference for me.

  1. Own your feelings: Instead of thinking the things you feel are the result of external forces, recognize them as your own emotions.
  2. Set some long-term goals: Set goals for five or ten years down the road but don’t stop there – go on to analyze the  things you need to do to achieve those goals and set them up as your smaller, short-term goals.
  3. Write things down: Seeing your plans in written form can inspire you to act on them – it can also help you catch weak spots in your plans so you can adapt the steps as needed.
  4. Take action: Pick one of your short-term goals and set it in motion – waiting – with no action – leaves you stuck in the feeling of being lost.
  5. Be adaptable: If you have spent a long time  struggling, breaking free of a destructive cycle isn’t going to be easy, so expect to find flaws in your plans and be ready to jump into an alternative approach – and remember that it’s only failure if you completely give up.
  6. Set yourself up to succeed: This is especially important at first – make some of your short-term goals SO easy and SO small you can breeze right through them – this gives you a taste of success that you can use as a strong foundation for your bigger goals.

You can take control and take action to change your course if you are feeling lost in life, whether you find the right path or not is completely in your hands.
