You are in your room, lying on the bed thinking random thoughts. Stop right there. Yes, it’s a sign and you need to take it as such. There comes a time in everyone’s life where they aren’t really sure where they stand and what they need to do in order to advance. Is this yours? Are you at a standstill, aimless and not caring? This is exactly the point where you need to get a bearing on what lies ahead and what is directly in front of you. Still don’t believe this could be you? Here are the 7 signs that will confirm that you need to get a grip and claim your hold on life.
1. Money Management is Not Your Thing
This is perhaps the first and most crucial thing that you need to get a control of. If this is something that happens more often than not, you are most certainly not in control of your life. Having a good job is not enough if you spend your entire salary within 10 days, without paying all the bills. This is the red flag waving in your face about how you are unable to budget the finances of your life.
2. You Still Rely on Your Mom for Home-Cooked Food
Having a bit of pizza every week or so is fine, but if your idea of home-cooked meal is your mom’s dinner table, then rest assured, you still haven’t taken control of your life. You don’t only need to learn how to cook yourself but also how to manage and grocery shop.
3. You are Quick to Judge
This may sound like a random, non-related issue, but quick judge of situations and characters are the people who aren’t very sure of themselves. If you fall in this category, it means that you haven’t learned the art of second chances and letting things be.
4. Your To-Do Lists are Too Incomplete
Another flash alert that you need to get a hold on your life and tighten your grip on what track it is taking. You plan something, even make a list, but end up thinking I’ll do it tomorrow; listen up, tomorrow never comes.
5. A Tornado Hit Your House/Office Desk!
If you just shifted your star guiltily off the screen, it means that you have realized that you probably are not in control of your life. The state of your house or office desk shows the state of your mind. Keep that in mind the next time you put off cleaning the place.
6. Sleeping Late is a Norm
Sleeping/waking late is another thing that might be becoming a trend lately, but which indicates that you aren’t certain of where your life is going. All you need to do is make a timeline, which you never cross. You will notice the difference.
7. Toxic People are Your Regular Group
Be it toxic friends, or toxic love, you need to make sure that you stay away from such Debbie Downers. They are going to do nothing but fill you with negativity and hopelessness. Stay away from them and you will discover a world that you can handle pretty well.
A Selection of Get Your Life Together Quotes
“Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.” ~ Steve Jobs
“If you wait, all that happens is you get older.” ~ Larry McMurtry
