how to follow your inner compass

[:en]

Cooler days and fall colors gently reminds us to welcome a time of transition with patience and grace. Living in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, I’m always grateful for this season. As children go back to school and we say goodbye to warm summer days, it’s time to look forward and re-organize our lives again.

Fall is a Time of Graceful Transitions

Fall is the time of change and appreciation of the abundance of life. It is a symbol for transformation and receiving gifts. How can we enter this new season with composure and excitement? How can we follow our inner compass during the time of change?

Going through a major life transition, like having a baby, getting married, or getting a new job, can be overwhelming. In addition to the natural stress of adjusting to a new role, we often impose on ourselves a pile of unrealistic expectations and rules about how we need to handle it.

What Does It Mean to Follow Your Inner Compass?

Luckily, you don’t need to have your whole life figured out before you take your next step. Contrary to a popular belief, following your inner compass doesn’t mean that you need to know what your life purpose is. What a relief!

As my favorite poet and spiritual teacher Rumi said, “As you start walking on the way, the way appears.” You do need to start walking though!

As we take each step, the next step appears before us. This next step is all we ever need to focus on. Trust me, it works like magic every time. Once I stop worrying and relax in the present moment, I’m in a position to discover my next step. And the next step comes from pure inspiration rather than a bunch of old beliefs and ideas.

I like being in a state of curious presence, giving my full attention to each moment. Curiosity, playfulness, and trust in the basic goodness of the Universe make life easier and allow us to be happy students of life. This article offers good questions that can help you get curious and consider new possibilities.

Leadership Lessons from the Thriller “The Edge”

Deliberate transitions require only trusting that your inner compass is always working. As I was reflecting on my own transformation in the last few years, I watched a very powerful thriller – “The Edge.” In this movie, Anthony Hopkins says to Alec Baldwin, “Just because you feel lost doesn’t mean your compass is broken.” This line just hit me with a profound realization that being lost in the wilderness of Alaskan forest is a perfect metaphor for our life journey.

Incidentally, Anthony Hopkins’ character in the movie demonstrates many qualities of a good leader. Observing him in this movie helped me to see how I can be a leader in my own life. Despite many challenges, he is always positive, calm, and collected. He offers creative ideas and takes initiative in implementing them. He is solution-oriented and proactive.

Be Gentle with Yourself and Trust

Another gem from the same movie was the idea that most people die in the woods out of shame. We start asking, “How did I get myself into this?” As soon as something doesn’t go exactly as planned, we often get too hard on ourselves. These self-expectations and criticisms weigh hard on our shoulders. [clickToTweet tweet=”Pivotal points in our lives is the time when we need to be our own best friend the most.” quote=”Pivotal points in our lives is the time when we need to be our own best friend the most.” theme=”style3″]

In addition to using a compass, Anthony Hopkins and Alec Baldwin follow birds and the flow of the river to find their way home. At the time of change, nature offers us many great examples. We just need to keep walking one step at a time and trust that it’s natural for us to find our way out.

Let’s make this season a celebration of our innate ability to listen to our inner compass and follow our joy!

My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on various websites for about a year and am
concerned about switching to another platform. I have
heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into
it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your
articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
However just imagine if you added some great images or
videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and
video clips, this blog could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its field.
Superb blog!

I don’t know if it’s just me or if everyone else encountering problems with your site.
It seems like some of the text within your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is
happening to them as well? This may be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
