3 Ways to Tell if You Are on the Right Path

“Am I where I’m supposed to be in life?” “How do I know if I’m on the right track?” “Am I moving closer or further away from my goals?” These are three variations of the MOST common question that I hear from my new clients and I see in my comments on social media and find in my inbox at www.soulmanifesto.com/contact/

So let’s dive into this all-important question together, right now. First of all, let my just answer your question: YES! You are always where you are meant to be. Wherever we are in our journey in any way, shape, or form, we are where we’re supposed to be! You only have to remember that this is an experience. We are here on this awesome planet to experience, create, and to love, and that’s it. So wherever you are in that journey is the right place because that’s what you are ready to learn at that moment. And there is no rush. Now, that is the universal answer. You are where you are meant to be. But let me put one thing to you:

Are you happy where you are? That may be an even more important question, and something you actually have quite a bit of control over. Let me explain. There are three things I do to create certainty that I am on the right path.

Number One: I’m excited when I get up in the morning.

Am I ready to just raise my arms up to the universe and God and say, “Fill my heart with love and help me serve the best” Because if I can do that, I know I am filled already with the excitement of the day, and of what I’m going to be doing, where I’m going, who I’m going to see, and what I’m going to achieve that day. Believe it or not, 97% of our population doesn’t feel that way, and I’ve even heard some people get up and actually put their heads in their hands like, “I cannot face another day.” Ninety-Seven percent is A LOT! And what that tells you, is that people aren’t choosing to embrace each new day when we know that each day is a gift and that life is precious, and we always have things to be grateful for…so I start each day in gratitude and I allow myself to feel some excitement. Beginning each day like that, helps me know that when opportunities come, I will be ready to recognize and receive those gifts with my eyes and arms wide open.

Number Two: I don’t let the challenges I encounter along the way bother me.

I’m going for my goal, and everyone has challenges. We have to have challenges. Challenges are our growth. We grow with challenges. We don’t grow when we’re winning and we’re satisfied, but when we have challenges, that’s what helps us to grow to become the person we need to become to attain the goal. But here’s the thing, if I love what I’m doing and I’m excited in the morning, then the challenges that come up, they’re just little challenges. We’re going to find a way around it. We’re going to think in a different way, we’re going to morph it. We’re going to try something different.

And Number Three: I look for synchronicities.

I find that when I’m on the right path, the people that come into my life help me, and I help them. You see things start to line up with the people that are coming in and they come in from all sorts of directions, but you can see the progress and everybody then feeds and helps each other on the journey. It’s like the stars start to align.

I think it was Wattles who said that “We make the mold for whatever we really want.” But you gotta really want it! And if you make the mold and you believe in it with faith, then the universe will bring in everything to fill that mold. And that’s the people, the synchronicities, the opportunities. And because you are excited and you’re going through the challenges, and you’re becoming who you want to be, when those opportunities come, you see them. That’s how you know that you are really on the right track, and you’re where you’re supposed to be. Every day is an adventure. Every day feels good. If you don’t find that is true for you, you know what, don’t despair, because 97% of people are struggling with it too! But now YOU have these tools and the awareness that you have to be intentional, and choose gratitude as much as possible, to get that energy flowing around you. You might just need to morph it a little, you know? You just might need time to take a look, and just morph it a little. You might not be so far off the track, but I’ll tell you what, when you are doing what you love and you have faith, and belief and you’re excited, then there is no better way to live. Absolutely none. You owe it to yourself to discover that wonderful purpose, your soul’s purpose, and to live it to the fullest and just celebrate this life.

My friends, Spirit is love, and love of where we are, who we are, who we are becoming, and what kind of service we are bringing to this world. My gosh, that’s the best kind of Spirit ever. Have a wonderful day, and always, always, always, I love you. Namaste.
