Every day, each of us is venturing into uncharted territory. Few of us know where we want to sail, and the majority of us are stuck in a lull in the middle of the sea, hoping for a miracle. If you want to avoid losing track of where you are in life right now, read the seven warning signs below so you can be ready to deal with them when they appear.
1. You have a bad mood every day
If you find yourself waking up with little energy and no excitement, chances are you've lost track of your life. Those who know what they want in life greet each new day with exciting plans and the desire to put them into action.

Be aware that the horrible feelings could be a sign of depression, so seek additional assistance from those around you, particularly mental health professionals.
2. You experience a significant loss or gain in appetite
This is something I usually feel when I'm in a ‘down' mood. I'm a big eater, so I know that if I lose my appetite, it means I'm out of touch with myself. Another thing that tends to happen to me is that I get cravings for food even though I just ate a large meal a few minutes ago.
These sudden changes in appetite are one of the obvious warning signs that you are losing track of your life, so be prepared with a plan to get yourself back on track if it occurs at any point in your life.
3. You begin to question why you do the things you do in life
When you begin to question why you do the things you do in life, you are 99.99 percent of the time not on the right track. This means you are dissatisfied with how you live your life, and if you continue to live it in this manner, you will become someone who despises life.
The solution is simple: change yourself. Finding the right path can be difficult because it varies from person to person. By changing the way you live your life, you increase your chances of stumbling upon the right path that you sought.
4. You seek entertainment but discover that things are no longer as entertaining as they once were
I enjoy playing video games. But even the most innovative games can't always make me happy. Even if you dislike video games, you might have the same experience.
Your interactions with friends were monotonous, last night's World Cup finals match was uninteresting, and the television program appears to be lacking in entertainment value. Nothing will work unless you get your life back on track when entertainment loses its ability to entertain you.
5. You have a sense of being disconnected from the people around you
Friendship is a source of joy. Aside from that, they are a way for us to feel connected to the world around us. Have you ever felt as if you were the only person on the planet? If you answered yes, it's a sign that you're losing your grip on life. No matter how many people you meet, that sense of connection will never return because there is no ‘thread' emanating from your soul in the first place.
6.You are always thinking negative, pessimistic thoughts
This is typically a sign of worsening depression. Those who are depressed frequently lose sight of their own lives. If you are constantly thinking destructive, pessimistic thoughts and finding it difficult to turn those thoughts into more positive ones, you should stop right now! Most of the time, you may be walking a fine line, and even a slight push could send you tumbling into the deep, bottomless abyss.
7.You believe there is no light at the end of the tunnel
How can you expect to see the light at the end of the tunnel if you lose track to the point where you believe you are currently inside a dark cave? Someone who has no idea where they are is the same as someone who is unable to see solutions to their problems. The solutions exist, but they will only be revealed to those who have some clarity.
Where can I get a compass?
Bring out your compass if you notice any of the above warning signs in your life. You don't have one, do you? You're not sure how to use them? Some things you can do to help you find your life's compass are as follows:
Consider this. Sometimes the solutions to all your problems are already buried deep within you. It's just that you don't inquire.
Seek assistance and advice from others. There are many people out there who have been through the same thing as you, and they will gladly assist you in getting back on track.
Silence. The problem with those who walk a path is that they often walk a noisy path. It is unavoidable that there will be noises all around you, but you have the ability to silence them. How? Do nothing but be aware of what is going on around you. It works like a charm!
Don't Care What People Think: Everyone has their own perspective of what's cool. To some, it's fine to dance around the streets of their city singing the latest popular song. To others, it's not. To some, it's cool to be up-to-date with the latest fashion trends. To others, it's not. Whichever perspective you have, don't care what other people think. So what if you don't have the same interests as everyone else? So what if you don't have the same style as others? The fact is it's better to be yourself than to follow what others are doing. Anyone can follow the crowd. It's the people who are true to themselves who are the most successful. That being said, be yourself! You know who you are, so stay that way. Read more.
Mental Power: The greatest access to power is not necessarily physical. It is our mind, and our minds can do great things. We can take control of our minds and push ourselves to do the impossible. We can build our minds and create our own reality. Our minds can do anything we want them to do. We can become successful and wealthy and we can control the world around us. Become a master of your mind and, as a result, master the world. Read more.
Gamer Boys: The gamer boys have started a revolution. They have taken over the gaming industry and have been dominating for a while now.

They are young, they are tall, they are short, they are skinny, they are fat, they are nerds, they are jocks, they are geeks, but they all share one thing in common. They are all gamers. Read more.
Positive Person: Positive people are generally happier people. If you are positive, you are more likely to be more successful. Being positive means you are more likely to trust others and listen to what they say. If they are positive, they are more likely to listen to you. A positive person builds long-lasting relationships. A positive person is in a better mood, which in turn makes them more patient, more kind, and more empathetic. These people are more likely to help others in need. A positive person is more likely to do something nice, like buying you a coffee or helping you move. Read more.
