Take a step back
When you get lost, what is the first thing you do? You try to find the place where you think you got lost. You should do the same thing when you get lost on your way to success. Try to take a step back, figure out what is it you really want and what went wrong. Try to identify the reason that made you step down from your path and think, whether it was worth it or not. This way, you can customize your goals in order to fit your current desires.
Outline your current aims
Once you found out what went wrong and what is it that you really want, make a plan. This is a fundamental and a very important step in the right direction. Whenever something changes or whenever you discover a new method or a new obstacle, write it down. By writing it down, you will make clear what is necessary to keep in mind and what is just a minor issue you might not even care about.
Get your focus back up
The next very important step is to become focused again. You have to be focused no matter what in order to keep yourself on the right track.

Get rid of the things that caused your misstep
Once you identify the things that affected you in a negative way, or as you may, influenced your progress negatively, you need to write them down. When you do that, you will have a list of things you need to be aware of lying in front of you. Having that in your mind, you will be cautious of the things that brought you down and you will be able to direct your progress in the correct way.
Talk to a professional or to a mentor
This is a very important step many people disregard, as they don’t believe professionals, because they’re a “scum”. However, a professional or a mentor that has already done something you are trying to do will boost your progress and help you find your way back to the top. Yes, you might have to pay, yes you still need to make sure whether the individual you’re talking to actually knows what he’s talking about, but all of that is worth doing, as it will definitely help you get back on where you’ve got lost.
And finally, learn from your mistakes
Lastly, if there’s something from this article that you should remember, it is that you need to learn from your mistakes. Otherwise you will never progress. Learning from your mistakes or, should I say, from your failures is a fundamental concept all of us need to go through. We are designed to learn from our mistakes. This is also why you have to take all the previous steps. At the end, it always comes up to whether you’ve learned something or not. It is completely natural to make mistakes. But the important question is whether you can learn from them or not.
