If you do not see in front of you the path that you must follow, it is perhaps the time to build it yourself.
Discover 5 strategies that help you find your way out of the maze of life.
There are times when you struggle to find your way in life, your journey.
Maybe you are not sure about your chosen career, you are afraid that you will not find a job or you face many difficult situations that you have to solve.
If you find yourself in the description above, use the following five strategies to help you find your journey.
If you can’t see the road in front of you, you have to build it yourself.
- Get out of your comfort zone
If you stay in one place, it will be hard for you to find your way in life.
The more things you do – study, travel, make new friends, get involved in various activities – the better.
Never stop and always try new things.
This attitude keeps you active and helps you get out of your comfort zone, where you feel safe, but extremely frustrated.
Take advantage of all the pressure around you to get up off the couch and acknowledge the failure to fulfill your feeling that you are the only one who has not yet found its way into life.

- Listen to your inner self
The discouraging thoughts that invade your mind cause you restlessness and prevent you from listening to yourself.
Sometimes it is hard to listen carefully, because you can discover both the good and the bad things that you are doing right now.
If you feel lost, listen to your sixth sense and let yourself be guided by intuition.
You may not be able to find a way just because you are over-analyzing things.
“This career takes me nowhere” or “I will never find a job” are just thoughts generated by the fears that have gripped you.
Let things flow and do not anticipate the future. This way, you will be able to see all the possibilities in front of you.
- Stop trying to fix your past mistakes
You have often wasted your time trying to repair everything you do not like about yourself or what makes you complex.
Stop! You waste valuable time. Rather, try to cultivate and highlight all your talents and skills.
Do you think you have none? That’s because you didn’t pay them enough attention.
Do not underestimate yourself. Find out what you’re really good at and what you’re noticing.
It doesn’t matter how small your talent is. You can always perfect it and become one of the best.
Why not start today?
- What do you really want?
It may seem easy, but most people don’t know what they want. Thus, you feel lost and suffocated.
You have to be patient and allow the pressure to move you in the right direction, once you’ve discovered what it is.
If you do not know what you want, it is impossible to look for what you want to find. You must have well-defined goals.
If you wait, just stress. The same thing happens if you get carried away by the negative thoughts.
It’s time to answer the question “What do you want?” and to go further with the purpose set in mind.
- Dream high
Small dreams give you fewer opportunities to take risks and achieve extraordinary achievements.
It is not absurd to build a great dream if you really want something and think you can achieve it.
Do you want a job? Look for the best one that will make you feel proud of yourself. Don’t settle for a little.
Do you want a career? Choose the one that really suits you.
Do not think about employment opportunities, but about how much you can learn and evolve.
A great dream is the path to your own happiness. You do not have to conform and orient yourself towards the mediocre sphere.
You can get everything you want.
Maybe the reason why you haven’t found your journey in life so far is really your refusal to dare to do the impossible.
Maybe this is the path that is long awaiting you to cross it.

- “For everything in this journey of life we are on, there is a right wing and a left wing: for the wing of love there is anger; for the wing of destiny there is fear; for the wing of pain there is healing; for the wing of hurt there is forgiveness; for the wing of pride there is humility; for the wing of giving there is taking; for the wing of tears there is joy; for the wing of rejection there is acceptance; for the wing of judgment there is grace; for the wing of honor there is shame; for the wing of letting go there is the wing of keeping. We can only fly with two wings and two wings can only stay in the air if there is a balance. Two beautiful wings is perfection. There is a generation of people who idealize perfection as the existence of only one of these wings every time. But I see that a bird with one wing is imperfect. An angel with one wing is imperfect. A butterfly with one wing is dead. So this generation of people strive to always cut off the other wing in the hopes of embodying their ideal of perfection, and in doing so, have created a crippled race.” ― C. JoyBell C.

- “All I wanted was to live a life where I could be me, and be okay with that. I had no need for material possessions, money or even close friends with me on my journey. I never understood people very well anyway, and they never seemed to understand me very well either. All I wanted was my art and the chance to be the creator of my own world, my own reality. I wanted the open road and new beginnings every day.” ― Charlotte Eriksson, Empty Roads & Broken Bottles; in search for The Great Perhaps

We walk in our sleep and teach our muscles to work without thinking and I dare you to walk where you have not yet walked and I dare you to notice. Don’t try to get anything out of it, because you won’t. Don’t try to make use of it, because you can’t. And that’s the point. Just walk, see, sit down if you like. And be. Just be, whatever you are with whatever you have, and realise that that is enough to be happy. There’s a whole world out there, right outside your window. You’d be a fool to miss it.” ― Charlotte Eriksson, You’re Doing Just Fine

To awaken from sleep, to rest from awakening, to tame the animal, to let the soul go wild, to shelter in darkness and blaze with light, to cease to speak and be perfectly understood.” ― Rebecca Solnit, Storming the Gates of Paradise: Landscapes for Politics
- “A book is as dangerous as any journey you might take. The person who closes the back cover may not be the same one that opened the front one. Treat them with respect.” ― Mark Lawrence, Red Sister

- “I have an idea that some men are born out of their due place. Accident has cast them amid certain surroundings, but they have always a nostalgia for a home they know not. They are strangers in their birthplace, and the leafy lanes they have known from childhood or the populous streets in which they have played, remain but a place of passage. They may spend their whole lives aliens among their kindred and remain aloof among the only scenes they have ever known. Perhaps it is this sense of strangeness that sends men far and wide in the search for something permanent, to which they may attach themselves. Perhaps some deep-rooted atavism urges the wanderer back to lands which his ancestors left in the dim beginnings of history.” ― W. Somerset Maugham, The Moon and Sixpence

- “I tramp a perpetual journey.” ― Walt Whitman, Song of Myself
- “Would you like to know your future?
If your answer is yes, think again. Not knowing is the greatest life motivator.
So enjoy, endure, survive each moment as it comes to you in its proper sequence — a surprise.” ― Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration
25 Journey quotes
- “The creative act is a letting down of the net of human imagination into the ocean of chaos on which we are suspended, and the attempt to bring out of it ideas.
It is the night sea journey, the lone fisherman on a tropical sea with his nets, and you let these nets down – sometimes, something tears through them that leaves them in shreds and you just row for shore, and put your head under your bed and pray.
At other times what slips through are the minutiae, the minnows of this ichthyological metaphor of idea chasing.
But, sometimes, you can actually bring home something that is food, food for the human community that we can sustain ourselves on and go forward.”
― Terence McKenna
- “It’s not so much the journey that’s important; as is the way that we treat those we encounter and those around us, along the way” ― Jeremy Aldana

Scared to live because I was scared to die. But at the same I was so scared of living, so I wanted to die. Or maybe so scared of dying that I refused to live. You don’t have to be afraid to fall, when you’re already on the ground. You don’t have to be scared to lose someone, when there’s no one around to lose.” ― Charlotte Eriksson, Empty Roads & Broken Bottles; in search for The Great Perhaps
- “Sometimes you don’t know when you’re taking the first step through a door until you’re already inside.” ― Ann Voskamp, One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are
- “I have been finding treasures in places I did not want to search. I have been hearing wisdom from tongues I did not want to listen. I have been finding beauty where I did not want to look. And I have learned so much from journeys I did not want to take. Forgive me, O Gracious One; for I have been closing my ears and eyes for too long. I have learned that miracles are only called miracles because they are often witnessed by only those who can can see through all of life’s illusions. I am ready to see what really exists on other side, what exists behind the blinds, and taste all the ugly fruit instead of all that looks right, plump and ripe.” ― Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem
- “Don’t pretend to be what you’re not, instead, pretend to what you want to be, it is not pretence, it is a journey to self realization.” ― Michael Bassey Johnson

and the game changed.” ― Lalah Delia

- “Not too long ago thousands spent their lives as recluses to find spiritual vision in the solitude of nature. Modern man need not become a hermit to achieve this goal, for it is neither ecstasy nor world-estranged mysticism his era demands, but a balance between quantitative and qualitative reality. Modern man, with his reduced capacity for intuitive perception, is unlikely to benefit from the contemplative life of a hermit in the wilderness. But what he can do is to give undivided attention, at times, to a natural phenomenon, observing it in detail, and recalling all the scientific facts about it he may remember. Gradually, however, he must silence his thoughts and, for moments at least, forget all his personal cares and desires, until nothing remains in his soul but awe for the miracle before him. Such efforts are like journeys beyond the boundaries of narrow self-love and, although the process of intuitive awakening is laborious and slow, its rewards are noticeable from the very first. If pursued through the course of years, something will begin to stir in the human soul, a sense of kinship with the forces of life consciousness which rule the world of plants and animals, and with the powers which determine the laws of matter. While analytical intellect may well be called the most precious fruit of the Modern Age, it must not be allowed to rule supreme in matters of cognition. If science is to bring happiness and real progress to the world, it needs the warmth of man’s heart just as much as the cold inquisitiveness of his brain.” ― Franz Winkler
- “Cherish every moment with those you love at every stage of your journey.” ― Jack Layton
- “The best teachers have showed me that things have to be done bit by bit. Nothing that means anything happens quickly–we only think it does. The motion of drawing back a bow and sending an arrow straight into a target takes only a split second, but it is a skill many years in the making. So it is with a life, anyone’s life. I may list things that might be described as my accomplishments in these few pages, but they are only shadows of the larger truth, fragments separated from the whole cycle of becoming. And if I can tell an old-time story now about a man who is walking about, waudjoset ndatlokugan, a forest lodge man, alesakamigwi udlagwedewugan, it is because I spent many years walking about myself, listening to voices that came not just from the people but from animals and trees and stones.” ― Joseph Bruchac
- “The best parts of life are the things we can’t plan. And it’s a lot harder to find happiness if you’re only searching in one place. Sometimes, you just have to throw away the map. Admit that you don’t know where you’re going and stop pressuring yourself to figure it out. Besides…a map is a life someone else already lived. It’s more fun to make your own.” ― Cora Carmack, Finding It
- “Every journey conceals another journey within its lines: the path not taken and the forgotten angle.” ― Jeanette Winterson, Sexing the Cherry
- “When God takes out the trash, don’t go digging back through it. Trust Him.” ― Amaka Imani Nkosazana, Heart Crush
- “If you could do it, I suppose, it would be a good idea to live your life in a straight line – starting, say, in the Dark Wood of Error, and proceeding by logical steps through Hell and Purgatory and into Heaven. Or you could take the King’s Highway past the appropriately named dangers, toils, and snares, and finally cross the River of Death and enter the Celestial City. But that is not the way I have done it, so far. I am a pilgrim, but my pilgrimage has been wandering and unmarked. Often what has looked like a straight line to me has been a circling or a doubling back. I have been in the Dark Wood of Error any number of times. I have known something of Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven, but not always in that order. The names of many snares and dangers have been made known to me, but I have seen them only in looking back. Often I have not known where I was going until I was already there. I have had my share of desires and goals, but my life has come to me or I have gone to it mainly by way of mistakes and surprises. Often I have received better than I deserved. Often my fairest hopes have rested on bad mistakes. I am an ignorant pilgrim, crossing a dark valley. And yet for a long time, looking back, I have been unable to shake off the feeling that I have been led – make of that what you will.” ― Wendell Berry, Jayber Crow
- “I’m always wondering about the what-ifs, about the road not taken.” ― Jenny Han, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
- “As for the journey of life; at some point you will realize that YOU are the driver and you will drive!” ― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

- “I took the sleeper out of Glasgow, and as the smelly old train bumped out of Central Station and across the Jamaica Street Bridge, I stared out at the orange halogen streetlamps reflected in the black water of the river Clyde. I gazed at the crumbling Victorian buildings that would soon be sandblasted and renovated into yuppie hutches. I watched the revelers and rascals traverse the shiny wet streets. I thought of the thrill and danger of my youth and the fear and frustration of my adult life thus far. I thought of the failure of my marriage and my failures as a man. I saw all this through my reflection in the nighttime window. Down the tracks I went, hardly aware that I was going further south with every passing second.” ― Craig Ferguson, American on Purpose: The Improbable Adventures of an Unlikely Patriot

Rider Haggard, King Solomon’s Mines

- “With the passage of days in this godly isolation [desert], my heart grew calm. It seemed to fill with answers. I did not ask questions any more; I was certain. Everything – where we came from, where we are going, what our purpose is on earth – struck me as extremely sure and simple in this God-trodden isolation. Little by little my blood took on the godly rhythm. Matins, Divine Liturgy, vespers, psalmodies, the sun rising in the morning and setting in the evening, the constellations suspended like chandeliers each night over the monastery: all came and went, came and went in obedience to eternal laws, and drew the blood of man into the same placid rhythm. I saw the world as a tree, a gigantic poplar, and myself as a green leaf clinging to a branch with my slender stalk. When God’s wind blew, I hopped and danced, together with the entire tree.”― Nikos Kazantzakis

You have gone a long way and struggled a great deal, but I can see from your eyes that it was not for nothing.” ― Abigail J. Hartman, The Soldier’s Cross
- “Until modern times, we focused a great deal of the best of our thought upon rituals of return to the human condition. Seeking enlightenment or the Promised Land or the way home, a man would go or be forced to go into the wilderness, measure himself against the Creation, recognize finally his true place within it, and thus be saved both from pride and from despair. Seeing himself as a tiny member of a world he cannot comprehend or master or in any final sense possess, he cannot possibly think of himself as a god. And by the same token, since he shares in, depends upon, and is graced by all of which he is a part, neither can he become a fiend; he cannot descend into the final despair of destructiveness. Returning from the wilderness, he becomes a restorer of order, a preserver. He sees the truth, recognizes his true heir, honors his forebears and his heritage, and gives his blessing to his successors. He embodies the passing of human time, living and dying within the human limits of grief and joy. (pg.95, “The Body and the Earth”)” ― Wendell Berry, The Art of the Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays

- “There are two missions we are obligated to carry out during our life journey. The first, is to seek Truth throughout our lifetime. The second, is simply to be good. Engrave it in your mind that life is just one big board game where you have to make it from start to finish by being good. That is all you have to do. The hardest part, is dealing with all the obstacles that prevent smooth sailing. The trick is, to always strive to be the right person in all situations – regardless of personal cost to you. Your aim is to make sure the right book on your shoulder weighs more that the bad book on the left. The scales are real. Regardless of your chosen faith, there is a measurement system to be found in all of the world’s religions. After all, does it make sense for all souls, good or bad, to end up in the same place? Of course not. To really secure the very best setting in the afterlife, the vibrations of your good deeds must surpass your death.” ― Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

- “They laid up in the shade of a rock shelf until past noon, scratching out a place in the gray lava dust to sleep, and they set forth in the afternoon down the valley following the war trail and they were very small and they moved very slowly in the immensity of that landscape.
Come evening they hove toward the rimrock again and Sproule pointed out a dark stain on the face of the barren cliff. It looked like the black from old fires. The kid shielded his eyes.
