As we progress, develop, and move forward in life through our experiences and the knowledge gained through these experiences, we are able to gain somewhat of a sense of purpose in our lives. A better understanding of who we are now, and possibly, who we want to be in the future. It is important that we keep in mind a few things as we develop into the successful individual we strive to be.
You can always start over, and start over again. It is normal to encounter many hurtles involving confusion and uncertainty as we climb the success ladder. We decide on things which we soon find does not suit our lives whether in the moment or in the future, but we wouldn’t have come to find this unless the decision was once decided upon. We consider these decisions to sometimes be “mistakes”, although looking at it from a growth perspective, these decisions shape who we are and who we become in the future. These decisions lead us from one place to another, maybe an unexpected opportunistic place. Although, if your decisions happen to lead you to a place where you are not thriving as the best version of yourself, you are capable of starting over, and over again. The ability to make decisions gives us the ability to start new so that we can discover the better parts of our self. While it is easier said than done, it is absolutely possible to start over, and start over again.
Do not be afraid to try and to fail. This is a crucial aspect of self-growth, something we must always keep in mind. I can’t stress enough how much this can affect someone who reaches success and someone who is right on the brink of success. Some of the greatest individuals have stated themselves that the key to reaching that remarkable point of self-understanding is through the ability of losing the fear of trying and failing. If we take a look at some of the greatest individuals who have lived and created history, they all have a story to tell which comes from repeatedly trying, and failing. If we do not try and fail, we simply do not develop and grow, we do not appreciate nor understand.
Through the hurtles we encounter, through the changes we make, through our efforts and our failures we find the greatest versions of who we are and who we wish to become. Being mindful of these few things while climbing the ladder to success plays a pivotal role in the understanding of ourselves and our purpose(s) in life.
