If you are feeling like you are not achieving, and just can't find an opportunity to accomplish something, its a good idea to retrace your steps of success.
Find the last time you felt like you achieved something, and take note of what it was, how it was done, and who was involved. Then make a reconnection to the source of the success.
Whether it was talking to an old friend who gave you some good advice, or succeeding in a project you created. Retrace those steps and make a reconnection to that source of success.
Now this time make a new goal, using those contacts, ask new questions and aim to develop new skills. Learn from the processes you have encountered and endured before, to make a reconnection to the source of success.
As simple as sending an email to an old contact, re reading old notes or calling an old friend. Remember the time you felt as though you accomplished something and reconnect to its source with a fresh mind and a new agenda.
New opportunities can arise from an existing connection.
