Have you ever wondered in life if you are moving ahead on the right path? Have you woken up most of the mornings thinking about your career, relationship, or anything else that has been shaking your energy for long? To keep trying or to give up has been the million-dollar question most of us had. If only there was a way for us to know if our efforts are put in the wrong direction or it is just a matter of time.
I had recently watched an interview with J.K Rowling, where she mentioned that once she decided her story was about witches, magic, and dementors, ideas started flooding her mind. The rest is history. Once you are on the right path then there is never looking back. The universe guides us in its own subtle ways; it is just how we decipher them. Often people mistake the signs and either give up too early or keep trying on a losing horse.
So, what are those 5 signs?
1. Obstacles in your initial steps
Whenever your journey starts in the right direction, the first sign is ‘obstacle’.
When you decide to wake up at 5:30 am every day, the first obstruction is (i)you go to bed late the previous night (ii) you would want to snooze the alarm(iii)You would have no motivation to wake up.
When you decide to develop the habit of reading (i) your work pressure might start mounting(ii) you would get so busy not finding enough time to read a book.
When you decide to reduce your temper(i) you get instigated by someone for no reason(ii) your stress level increases because of work or some random reason.
When you decide to give up on chocolates, you have guests at home with a box full of your favorite chocolates.
If you observe these signs, then it is life’s way of testing our perseverance. Once you cross these hurdles with a conscious effort then nature starts to co-operate. It is just that you must understand the hint.
2. Lots of positive signs around you
You would be surrounded by many positive signs when you start progressing the right direction. It is nature’s way of showing you.
When you decide to take your passion seriously (i) you start seeing lots of new opportunities to pursue the same(ii) people (who matter to you) around encourage to take up your passion as a career.
Some random messages reach you through text or a friend’s phone call to not give up.
Just be vigilant to all these signs and keep going.
3. Your intuition gets so strong
Intuition has always played a main role in many successful people. Listen to this voice and set the tone onwards. The first thing that comes to your mind when you wake up in the morning always sets you in the right direction.
If you have been speculating on a relationship for quite long and do not know if you should keep trying or just give up, listen to the voice that echoes as the first thing when you wake up.
If you are thinking of a career shift for a while, listen to the voice that asks you to keep trying or just give up and move on.
Most of the time intuitions can never go wrong. The inner voice echoes based on your ability, just go for it; seldom can it go wrong but believe me you will be able to handle it.
4. The thoughts never go off your brain
When your though process is headed in the right direction it just gets glued to your brain.
If you have been deliberating on something and your gut feeling says you are on the right path, then the thought stays in your mind as a seed awaiting its blossom.
Once you decide to pursue a dream and if it is time to implement, the thoughts never go off your brain. They keep lingering in your mind all the time. The thought never goes off however busy you become. The only voice heard is ‘you can do it’
5. Feel highly motivated
If you are headed in the right direction, no negative comments can bring you down.
Suppose you are starting on a well-researched diet plan that would work for you then no negative comments could deter you from continuing with that diet. Your mind will never have the fear of ‘what if’.
There would be no need for external motivation if you are undeterred on your goal. None of the factors could influence you and bring you down. The long stretch of work never gets you tired. Long work schedules is never exhausting and you feel motivated to work all the time. Any obstacle that comes in you never seems big. Health co-operates in a big way keeping you energized all the time. Delays never happen and you can realize that the whole universe is cooperating with you in achieving your goal.
Nature keeps teaching you the same lessons repeatedly until you learn it the right way. That is why many people face the same/similar type of problems repeatedly; It is just because you have not learned the lesson quite well yet. The universe is always listening to us, it is just that we must be loud and strong enough to get our voice heard.
“Never aim for a quick success; in fact, success should come to you at a point in life where you would be able to sustain it.”
Hope this blog also turns out to be a positive sign in your life. Just believe in yourself.
