Ever felt like you have absolutely nothing figured out in your life? Like you always seem to be ‘behind’? Do you wish you could snap your fingers and Voila! You know what to do! Well…You aint the only one! There are tons of people who’d wish to be where you are! (Yeah, I know we’ve all heard that cliche), but its the truth. You need to stop struggling and being so hard on yourself.
PS: this is not a post on steps to getting your solutions instantly.
The honest truth is that, we all have stuff to figure out, whether some peeps want to admit it or not. Remember(if you have forgotten) and come to a knowledge( if you were not aware) that:
YOU HAVE CREATIVE ABILITY: I read a book recently, called ‘Vacancy:you are urgently needed’ by Folorunso Aliu and Anedge Ekiotenne, two very succesful men. In the book, the authors bring to realisation the ability we have to create opportunities, solutions. Believing in your capacity, no matter what other people say or do, is important.
YOU ARE ON A JOURNEY:
For those of us (*smiles*), who often ,take very lenghthy road trips,you know how there can be a turn of tables when it comes to others being seemingly ahead of you. Sometimes the ‘First bus gets there last, meanwhile, those who are in the third batch to take off, may not be grateful until they see the first batch arriving late at night.”Don’t worry your head! You will do well” those were the words that kept falling on my ears. So, keep that in mind
DON’T PUT YOURSELF UNDER UNDUE PRESSURE:
You are not everybody’s expectation, decide to be happy. Those who love you will truly want to know your welfare and not stress you on purpose. Yes, you should have things you want to achieve but please, make sure those things are what you enjoy and take them one step at a time. Don’t wear yourself out. Never, ever, ever compare yourself to the standard of others or the society! Haba! It is exhausting! You are an original. “Easy o jeje…”. Aye o le( life is not that hard)
IT WILL WORK OUT FOR YOUR GOOD
If you’re a believer in Jesus, (which you actually should be, it makes life easier), you know that all things will eventually fall into place when you walk with God. Make yourself better everyday
Compete with yourself, mistakes are allowed!!! It just shows a thousand wrong ways you can eventually try again and get right.
What is that thing people always ask you to do? Find out.
Its a process! (Long one, you say?_), but, it will only be better. Trying to always hurriedly”Figure it out” is not the best for you! Pray,act and then watch. Live happy, speak positive. It. will. all. work out.
THERE ARE OPPORTUNITIES EVERYWHERE, PREPARE
Look around you, prepare yourself and pick an opportunity to work with. Live ready.
PURPOSE IS NOT AS AMBIGIOUS AS YOU THINK
This is something that not far-fetched and is easier than you think. Yes, it will take you time to figure what you do best that others benefit positively from, but. You will eventually see it right in front of you.
STICK TO GOD
This. Is. Key! He will show you how. Don’t be in such a hurry, don’t give him ‘deadlines’. Ask! Like a child would ask their parent, but don’t demand answers, it’s kinda rude, don’t’cha think?
PS: God loves you and he cares.
