who feel lost in life
You feel clueless about your future and you feel you have little control over the direction you are going
To visualize this feeling,
imagine yourself lost at sea
with endless negative emotions
while your life is in slow motion
worn out with rusty coating
in oceans of self-loathing
colorless and soulless
some of your confidence
by looking at your incredible past
during your childhood...
in the safe haven of your hometown
they protected you from the waves
under their supervision
and cast off into the unknown
out of sight of your guardians
and explore the world by yourself
to stand on your own two feet
Eat, drink, smoke whatever you want
Throw huge parties
Life as an adult was one big adventure
and no longer treated like a child
You didn't really think about the future
What are these bills even for?
And where are all the clean towels?!
wasn't that easy after all...
your motivation started to fade
and doubt settled in
but your body is also in a bad shape
drugs, alcohol or video games
bingewatching Netflix or YouTube
while finding comfort in comfort food
to distract your mind from all worries
to rescue me
surrounded by darkness
to rescue me
and still no hero in sight
to rescue me
no one to save me?!
It's time to take action!
a cloud passes to make room
for the moon to shine through,
illuminating your surroundings
to take a peek over
the edge of your boat
is just enough to
outline your reflection
the perception of yourself on paper
So, we need a big piece of paper
and a pencil
you will get to know yourself better
and create an overview of who you have become
• your character
• your skills and competences
• important people in your environment
• and your accomplishments
lies in describing your reflection
in the middle with your name in it.
Then draw a horizontal and vertical line,
to create four quadrants.
of your typical patterns of
thoughts, feelings and behaviors
Your cocktail of traits makes you unique
You have skills in more abstract terms (soft)
or measurable skills (hard skills)
determine who you are.
Who are important people in your life?
Who inspires me?
With whom do I have
the best relationship?
you have achieved with success.
What are things that took a lot of effort
and you are still proud of?

Finished my thesis
Founded my own company
Sold my first product
understanding yourself better
your first mission
the Four Quadrants twice
and put it in your backpocket
into your pocket
the sky flashes...
at yourself from a distance
No longer a background actor
in a movie with a tragic ending
but back behind the wheel
as the captain of your own ship
became a little clearer
you came to the end of the first level
before you head to level 1-2
you will probably think of things
you want to add to your Four Quadrants
Lost at sea
