Have you ever been in that place in life where you look around you, think about your past, and just get lost? It's that feeling where you look at your life and don't like what you see. You don't really see a bright future and you don't quite know what to do about it. This is a feeling that can lead to depression as well as regretful actions. You might feel like a failure or that your life doesn't matter all that much since you have nothing good going for you. This can be a tough situation to be in and since there are so many different scenarios, let's focus on one specific situation; a life full of failures.

When you don't have a lot of success on your plate, it can be hard to believe that anything is really going to change. You may look at other people, compare yourself to them, and find that everyone has so much more than you. This can often lead people to not really do much at all or it can lead people to suddenly take massive action. So if you are in a state where your life isn't really going anywhere, what do you do about it? Here are a couple of suggestions.

The first thing you will need to do is to figure out what it is that you want in life. You don't necessarily have to come up with your life purpose or anything. All you need to do is figure out what you want most at the moment. This can be anything from getting a better job, getting in shape, to getting into a relationship and so on. The reason for having a goal is that it will give you a focus. If you live a life without focus, it will be like walking in a fog. You don't know where you are going and will most likely be wandering aimlessly for the rest of your life. When you have a destination, when you know what you want, your days will be filled with actions that will take you closer to that place.

Another thing you will need to do is to look at those who you surround yourself with and decide whether or not they are lifting you up or bringing you down. The people you decide to surround yourself with will have a major impact on how your life will turn out. A person who hangs around successful minded people will tend to think success and be successful themselves. A person who hangs around with failure will most likely end up a failure. Getting rid of toxic people in your life, the ones who are always negative and have a dim outlook on life might be hard but if you want to change your life for the better, then it may be the best decision you will ever make.

So having a goal and surrounding yourself with the right people are two things that you can do right away to help you make a positive change in your life. Good luck.

Very nice article. I think that no matter who we are or how well we are going, we all do feel lost at one stage or another. I like how you talk about finding a focus and that it doesn't need to be big, just a focus.

It's also so true about surrounding yourself with people who will bring you up. :)

Another point of view i've read is living your life by default or design. That is if you have a goal, plan or focus, your living your life by desing. If you have no goal, no plan or no focus, your living your life by default and whatever happens to you, is not your choice. I know what I would rahter want.

Thanks again for a nice article.

A good article, and I want to mention that we often reach this stage of being lost after we face hard times or bad experiences, which is a test to our strength.
