How To Find Your True Path

The path toward your destiny is not always as straight and narrow as you would expect.

Many folks have a “my way or the highway” view of life. Some will take whatever you tell them and go with it, while others will insist they know the right thing and they don’t need your advice. Finding true meaning and satisfaction in life, however, requires your input, not just your opinions. You will find that your path will be different than yours if you accept it. In this article we’ll talk about discovering your true path and how to find what’s right for you.

Let’s find out why.

What is your true path?

You likely haven’t identified your true path for quite some time. You’re stuck somewhere in the middle of a sea of experiences, thoughts and values. The path is confusing and full of dead ends.

So how do you get to where you’re truly at?

The true path may be elusive, if not downright elusive. You may go through life without knowing what you have “been” doing; it just “feels right”. But when you look at what you were doing, you often find yourself missing out on vital, meaningful experiences that took place while you were doing those things.

You aren’t “tru and true”, nor “tru and wrong”. That’s the kind of self-sabotaging philosophy that people who live in the middle are often guilty of. Why keep running after the false dream if you know you’re never going to really reach your goals?

So what do you do?

You may have many options, and it can be overwhelming to try to figure out the one true one. I see this all the time–people are trying everything to determine the truth about themselves, as if every moment of their lives has a purpose. This attitude is not only annoying, but it also distracts from the life that you have right now.

So instead, you should look to find your true path. What do you want, and what do you stand by? What are you hoping to become? What do you want and what do you do every day to get there?

This is the only true path you’ll ever know. So set your sights on it and you will find it, and all other paths will get tossed in the wind.

This means that what you’re doing now is only a tiny piece. The other side of your coin is waiting to be uncovered.

Where do you want to be?

You may have many ideas of where to go, or have a short-term or long-term goal(s). This is great, because it gives your mind a chance to think about options and to come up with a vision and plan that you can act upon. It’s the only way to ensure that you never get lost.

But this approach is only a temporary fix. The real path is never found in the middle of that sea of options, because eventually all those choices will be “taken” by something else, and you will be left wishing you’d taken one of them instead.

No matter what happens, the real path will always happen, even if you think you’ve chosen the wrong one.

In the beginning, there will be a great deal of uncertainty, as all of your options will be unknown. It can take a long time to figure out what’s right for you, which is why it’s so important to find your true path soon after this “fog of choice” is lifted.

You can’t always control what other people do. They are creatures of habit and tradition, and will go along with what they’ve always been doing. But you have the power to make your own choices.
