Finding Your Way

December 16, 2016 DR. SHARON BUCHALTER

The world is big, the world is scary, and the world is ever-growing. So, how do you find your place in such a big world that is full of not only people, but opportunities? I know I am not the only one who has trouble finding their way sometimes, so let’s take this step by step, together! Here are some steps that we should take when finding our way:

Step One: Try something new

There’s no better way of finding your way than starting off with trying something new! Think about something that you have never done before but have always wanted to. Maybe it’s hiking a nearby trail, traveling to a new city, or even trying a new restaurant. What this will do is open your mind. It will allow you to expand your knowledge on things that you may dislike/like. If you experience as much as you can, you can decipher between what inspires you and what does not.

Step Two: Expand your comfort zone

This step piggybacks on the first because when you try new things, you are expanding your comfort zone. Expanding your comfort zone is key because when you are constantly expanding your comfort zone, your mind is continuing to grow. As it continues to grow, so do you. With growth comes finding your way. You must continue to expand your comfort zone by trying new things regularly. There is a quote that resonates with me because it’s something I try to live by and it goes like this - “get comfortable being uncomfortable”.

Step Three: Get away from all the noise

The world is big and the world is crowded (in some places). So, sometimes you are going to need to get away from all of the noise and find a quiet place. By finding a quiet place, you can listen to your inner thoughts and process what is going on in your mind. When you get in touch with your inner thoughts, it will allow you to think about what you really enjoy doing and are passionate about.
