In life, there are certain questions we ask ourselves based on our desires to be and remain certain about life paths. We would have liked to see the repercussions of our decisions before making them. This is why in certain areas, people seek the minds of their religious leaders concerning marriage, business, travel decisions and lots more. It’s always a question of how we know we are on the right path?
The road to success is seldom straight and often filled with hurdles. However, there are crucial factors that give us the hint we desire to build the confidence to forge ahead.
Your mind knows only some things. Your inner voice, your instinct, knows everything. If you listen to what you know instinctively, it will always lead you down the right path.― Henry Winkler
You are excited
You know you are on the right path when you are always excited to go to work, start that dream business, see that friend or meet that new partner. The saying;
If you want to know where your heart is, look where your mind goes when it wanders.― Vi Keeland
Is indeed apt. Our minds keep wandering to where we find excitement. Hence that is the place of rest. You want to do something that you are excited about. That thing that gives you inner joy. It could be your career or business or working with a particular set of individuals. I have come to realize that what doesn’t interest me stresses me easier than what excites me.
You are learning
Continuous learning is the minimum requirement for success in any field.― Brian Tracy
In an environment or an endeavour where continuous learning is encouraged, anyone, except those who have planned to fail or remain stagnant will be excited to be a part. Continuous learning as Brian Tracy puts it, is the minimum requirement for success, hence, when you are in a career that exposes you to challenges that makes you a better version of yourself, then you must realize that you are on the right path.
You are surrounded by like minded people
There is nothing as satisfying as being surrounded by people who are on the same wavelength as you. People who at every point know what you are thinking and can work in synergy to achieve a common goal. You know you are on the right path in your career when you are in a work environment that promotes teamwork and foster collaborative wins and losses.
People see the change in you
Have you ever been in a place or state of mind where people begin to celebrate the changes in you? Most times our bodies are the reflection of our state of mind. When you are on the right path, you have peace of mind and the general wellbeing that you enjoy reflects on your body making it easy for people, friends and family to recognise the change in you.
Search your heart, do you have something to be grateful for?
We are often grateful for things that make us happy, things that make us fulfilled as individuals. When we lack and are given what we lack we tend to show gratitude. Being on the right path is like that; you become grateful for every step and every milestone achieved; your aim is always on your goal and when a task is accomplished, you are grateful for achieving it.
