“How are you doing?” is that natural first question to ask others and that others ask us, but it is one that we fail to ever really think about. So, take a moment to really process this question.
So really, where have you been lately?
On top of the world?
Are you in the stage of contentment and are things just going ok?
Or, do you just not care about much and life isn’t going as planned?
Wherever you are at in life, you need to think about your thoughts and where you really are.
Because you could be fooling yourself. Most of us don’t really take the time to be honest with ourselves because we like the easy way out. It is easy to not confront the real issues in our lives. Let us break this bad habit.
Here are four action steps to take in your own life as you evaluate your recent thoughts and ideas and really think about how you are doing:
1. Know where you are at.
Determine what your mindset is. If it is stuck in the same old rut, change your thinking. It really is that easy. Your thoughts are yours. Guard your thoughts because they are affected by what you let in. Your emotions are a good sign of where your thoughts have been. Be honest with yourself and with others while doing this self-searching. This helps you know where you really are in life and where you are going. If things aren’t where they should be, don’t be afraid to make the necessary changes.
2. Know what it is you actually want to accomplish.
Stop wandering and begin to focus on what really matters. What are you passionate about? What would you do for free? That is a good start to finding your passion. Do what you can to follow your passions and live them out.
3. Feed yourself positivity.
I know we talk about this a lot, but I can’t say it enough. Start with reading the Bible or another positive, uplifting book. Evaluate the different relationships you have in your life. Whatever you do to ensure a positive outlook on life, make sure that you put those things into place in your life.
4. Don’t forget how to have fun.
Nothing gets you down in the dumps faster than forgetting how to have fun. Go out on a date with your wife, take your kids somewhere fun, hang out with your friends or do whatever you do to have fun. Rejuvenation is the main thing you want to find here. I guess I should remind you to relax and have fun. If you can’t remember the last time you did this, then take a day off. It’s time.
