Does this sound familiar? "I can't decide what I want, so I'm doing nothing." or "I keep making plans but not taking action on them." or "I don't know where to start." Do you feel like you are stuck in a rut and not sure how to move forwards?
We all feel like that sometimes. Having worked with thousands of women all around the world we often hear the same story. Women knowing what they want, but unable or unsure how to move towards it.
You feel unsure because the path you are about to embark on is new and exciting. That's a good sign! You are ready to follow your inner drive but don't quite know how to take action. Perhaps you keep doubting your self, your ideas or your plans?
Don't focus on the gap, focus on the step.
It may feel like there's an enormous gap between where you are and where you want to be and that can be paralysing.
“You have everything you need to take the next step.”
You may not have absolutely all the information you need to get to the end destination, but you do have the knowledge to do the tasks and actions that will take you forwards - today!
Try to stay in the present moment rather than spend energy worrying about the things and resources you are lacking right now.
Shift your focus.
You have the power to do the things you want to do. It is a choice. You can choose what you do next. You can push back and create boundaries to protect the time and energy you need to work on your dreams. Don't let life's circumstances stop you from taking action!
And you don't need to know how it will all turn out, that's often impossible. Don't try to solve the whole journey from A to B whilst sitting at your desk. All you need to know is that you will be showing up today and taking that one step.
You are enough.
Give yourself permission to focus on what really matters.
Remind yourself about your 'why'. Why is it important that you start showing up? Your knowledge and gifts are desperately needed. You are going to make a positive impact around you. Remind yourself about the bigger picture. Your journey is not about you.
Here's a simple exercise you can do to shift and acknowledge your next powerful step:
Write down the following statement:
"Today I choose to focus on .... It's important that I do this because..."
