When we’re stuck, when we are struggling, when things aren’t necessarily going our way… we have a tendency to just listen to all the noise and the chatter and search for answers outside of ourselves.
What that leads to (or potentially can lead to) is confusion and even more muddying the waters. You get more and more advice and opinions flooding in. Adding to the confusion.
At one point, I found myself in this situation where I had so many things coming at me about how I should build my business, what I should focus on next, what marketing strategy I should use, how I should create my program, which programs I should create… so many opinions were coming in from all over the place.
The reason that happened is because I was looking outside myself instead of looking within. All I needed to help me move forward, I already had inside myself – I just didn’t trust myself. I didn’t trust that the experiences I’ve had throughout my life have shaped the person and the business owner that I am today.
My experiences are what has helped me to create the business that I have today and helped me to gain the knowledge that I use every day. Every day, every minute to help people achieve their goals, build their vision, create their strategy and build their team.
What happens is when we can finally silence all the chatter and thoughts in our head and take a minute to just be quiet, is that the answers and the clarity that we need will come to us. The answers that we need to move ourselves forward are already inside ourselves… right there in front of us! We are just missing it because of all the external noise.
We tend to think that there’s one answer, one strategy and one magic thing we can do to build our business and create an amazing life – but really, there is no one strategy. There are an enormous amount of strategies and what will work for you is reliant upon who you are and how you’re building your business individually.
Yes, there are blueprints and practical things we can do but only you know what will really work for you. Our first go-to is to look outside of ourselves and listen to other people’s opinions (and there are sooo many opinions out there on the internet). This leads to even more confusion and more things coming into our life and onto our plate instead of just taking the time to listen to ourselves and then put that into action.
So, you already have inside yourself what you need to grow and move yourself forward. You just have to take time to listen to it and connect with it. Once you do, the whole world will open up. The whole universe will present opportunities to you that you never, ever thought were possible. It will allow you to free your mind and to really fire up that spirit that you have from within.
When we can quiet our mind, we can hear the clarity and we can really step into the highest and truest expression of ourselves so that we can build the business we want to build and help the people we want to help. We can’t do that when there are so many things clouding up our mind and keeping us distracted.
So, the next time you feel confused or like you don’t know what to do next in your business, just take a moment to be silent. You could be just one small step away from getting the clarity that you need in the form of advice someone gives you… something you read… something you see on a billboard, but you won’t be able to receive that if you don’t take the time to just get quiet. Allow clarity to shine through and show you what your next step is.
