Well, techincally we’re always where we’re meant to be, because we are here based on everything that has happened previously.
There are many ways to take this question though. Perhaps the most important thing I learned from this thread is that many of you don’t know the rules of life. Instead, you believe that you have little to no control of your life and where it leads. Your belief system is stifling your own ability to thrive in your life and end up just where you want to be.
If you stop and realize you are not where you want to be, you can make changes to move towards where you want to be. However, if you have no idea how to do that, it doesn’t work so well. This is discouraging. This is why I think it’s so important that everyone learns how to have control over their life and where they are heading in the short and long term. I currently have that planned for Personal 4, but I will also have to work on some introductory articles for the forum.
For now, just realize that it does no good to get down about where you are. The purpose isn’t to make a value judgement about where you are, but to accept it mindfully and be able to choose another direction. Don’t focus on your perceived failure, but shift your focus to where you want to be. What you focus on, you attract to you. Learn to start choosing differently and it will make a ton of difference.
And of course, if you’re really stuck, try bouncing ideas off other people. I’m available a lot more now so feel free to drop me an instant message or email.
