If you feel lost, if you don’t know what you’re doing with your life…
You are not alone, I feel the same.
And that is OKAY!
I know exactly how you feel. I’ve been there and in many ways, I’m still there.
I’m looking for a higher calling every day but I just can’t seem to find it. I have jobs and responsibilities but I still don’t know what I’m doing with my life and where I’m headed. And the trajectory I’m on is definitely not the way I want to live my life.
If you can relate, I know the feeling. I feel you.
But we can’t stay there. We have to strive for more. In doing so myself, I’ve been looking for the "winning formula" in people that we deem to be successful. What I found is that a lot of them have once been in our place.
Today, I want to share with you the stories of two women that are admired and looked up to, but that have once felt just as you and I do right now.
1. The first one isRadhi Devlukia Shetty’s. Radhi is not only former monk and motivational speaker Jay Shetty’s wife, but also an inspiration when it comes to conscious cooking and living. By bringing ancient wisdom into modern practices, she focuses on the importance of the mind and body connection, and how nutrition and lifestyle impact both. But, as she explains it in the video below, Radhi hasn’t always been sure about her calling. Watch this:
Now, Radhi is a plant-based dietician as well as a recipe developer for a vegan restaurant. She has 630k followers on Instagram, her own cooking website, and a YouTube channel. She is a bundle of light and positivity, and an inspiration to everyone.
2. The second story is Amber Scholl’s. As mentioned in a previous post, Amber is the truest representation I know of a regular girl truly and authentically making the most of any situation. But her life wasn’t always easy. As shown in the video below, there was a time when she felt lost too. Watch this:
Now, Amber is a famous YouTuber boasting over 3 million subscribers and almost half a billion views. She has managed to create the life that she always wanted and more. Amber is truly living her best life, she doesn’t just say it in a caption.
“Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

My intention in sharing these stories is to show you that not everyone we admire and look up to had it all figured out from the start. These are just two examples but there are countless successful people with similar stories and that is perfectly normal and okay because it’s part of life.
But what I believe they all did sooner or later is they pushed themselves to figure out what their passion is, what makes them feel accomplished despite the world’s definition of success. And they all had the courage to just go for it.
So whether you’re 17, 25, or 50, I hope this gives you the inspiration to go within and figure out what lights you up, what makes you come alive. Then use your rock bottom to push yourself back up to the surface, now shooting for the light you found within.
