Hey fellas, I am confused and pretty much would like to know if anybody had gone through the same thing. For quite a while I was quite happy with my life. I made a team of football in Europe (didn't last long), I was always improving my game (seduction) until I got to meet a girl that fulfilled that need of having a partner.
However, now I don't find my purpose in life. Unfortunately, my career in football (soccer) has not been like I had dreamed of. I suffered a bad ankle injury. For my luck, it was in my strong foot and I damaged some nerves pretty bad. The worst part was that I couldn't rehab it the right way because I had to leave the country and my stubborn ass played through my fucked up ankle damaging more what was already damaged.
I tried rehab but it seems I would never gain my form again.
I tried with trainers but mentally I'm just not there to overcome fear.
Now....I feel I lost purpose. I am back in the US living in a state I really don't like. I was coaching, because is my passion, but the pay wasn't good enough so I have to leave. I'm working a job that I completely don't like but it pays my bills.
At this point I feel lost and not sure what my path should be. The thing is that I'm not sure what the next step in my life should be? Why I'm feeling so lost?
Have anyone felt this way? I know everything comes in your inner game but mine is banged up. I even feel terrify of going to a field and play against professionals.
I barely want to get up in the mornings. I even feel pity for myself writing this.
If anyone has been in a position where you have felt you lost everything and you have no purpose anymore and overcome that, please share it.
I have some jobs offers for more desk jobs but something that I would hate to do.
I'm all about traveling and finding myself, has anyone gone traveling and have nice experiences?
Thank you for reading my vent. Life is beautiful and some times takes another perspective to see what you're not able to.
Yes, I have been in your situation before and know exactly what it feels like waking up in the morning so worried about your future that you simply don't feel motivated to get up and do something.
By the way, since I have lately replied to the post of the guy who got stuck in a very similar situation where he didn't know what his purpose was and what he had to do to get back to life, I suggest that you simply click on the link to this post titled "how do i find inner peace with myself and my surroundings?"
and read my reply to it if you want to learn about my tips on how to transform your entire life from the scratch when it comes to identifying and focusing on your true passions in life.
When it comes to successfully dealing with any of your problems and finding the best possible solution to it as quickly as possible, next I'm going to share with you the words of wisdom of a couple of psychologists that helped me get on the right path to achieving my own success in life.
I regained my focus on wanting to build my ever desired dream, passion-focused online business thanks to lately stumbling on two psychologists who taught me the secret to achieving the ultimate success from the perspective of having the right mindset.
They taught me two important things:
Turning your life's downsides into upsides is possible only after you decide to cope with the obstacles that stand in your way to achieving your goals and your ultimate success.
Every time you find yourself in the situation of desperately wanting to achieve your goal as quickly as possible by skipping all the hard work or in the situation where you end up being extremely upset or worried about not having something that you believe could make you feel happy and fulfilled, you should ask yourself a very simple question:
"Why am I now already happy?"
The combination of these two vital things helped me suddenly stop running around asking random people to lend me thousands of bucks to be able to take up the next big business-building mentorship or to go to the next big money-making seminar.
After asking myself the above question when going to bed one night, I woke up the following morning so blessed that I had such clarity of knowing exactly what my next steps are in relation to starting my own online business that I'd never had before.
It was really amazing how within only a few short minutes of asking myself "Why am I now already happy?"
I suddenly realized that I was indeed happy.
I realized that I had all the necessary skills and resources to succeed and make my dream business come true.
It's very interesting that the Harvard university psychologist who taught me the secret of the "Why am I now already happy?"
question, said that a team of researchers came to the realization of the benefits of asking this question after they'd discovered that a number of participants in their research who either won the lottery prize or had the option to choose their desired thing from among many items of the same kind, like clothes and cars, later stated that once they won the lottery money and their desired sports car, they didn't feel truly happy and fulfilled.
What they surprisingly said instead was that they felt much happier and fulfilled before winning the lottery and before winning their favorite sports car.
So, what the above mentioned question does for you immediately after you've asked it is that it simply helps activate your brain's cells responsible for finding the solution to your problem as quickly as possible in such situations where you initially get stuck worrying, complaining or just being sad and depressed about not having something that you desire or not having enough of it.
So, once I decided to accept the pain of all my financial frustrations and cope with it, and then asked myself the "Why am I now already happy?"
question, my brain's engine got fired up so much that I soon made up a solid plan and a viable strategy to start my own online business all based on identifying my true passions, my strengths and my free resources.
The bottom line is this: Unless you invest some effort and time in identifying what your purpose on earth is based on knowing who you really are and what your true passions and strengths are, you cannot expect somebody else to do this necessary work for you and help you achieve your ultimate success in life.
Hope you find my tips and observations encouraging enough to take those first most important steps towards reaching your dream life.
