In the land of social media and newsletters, its customary to share all the fabulous things in one’s life…amazing treks around the globe, perfectly poised, brilliant children, and selfless acts of charity. I’m about to break tradition and tell you that I have been struggling.
For the last month or so, everything has just felt off, both personally and in my business, and I realized I’d fallen back into some old thought patterns. I had been questioning everything: Is this really what I’m meant to do? I had been doubting myself: What makes you think you can pull any of this off? I had been comparing myself to other people in the coaching world: Why is it so easy for her?
With all the personal development I’ve done, all the therapy and coaching I’ve had, and all the growth I’ve experienced, I really thought I had mastered the mindset stuff. Like forever. But I’ve come to realize that it’s not like there’s a switch you can flip, and never experience doubt or question your abilities ever again. Believing in yourself and moving in the direction of the life you want to create are skills that you always have to work at mastering because most of us don’t default to “I’ve got this.” Following your dreams is not for the faint of heart, doll.
One of the things I tell my clients is that you can’t feel stuck if you’re taking action, and I decided that I should probably take my own advice. I don’t have to have everything for my whole life figured out. I’m doing what I feel called to do right now, and as long as I’m in alignment and taking action, the path will unfold as it’s supposed to for me. I don’t need to worry about a timetable, what comes next, or what anyone else is doing.
Can I get an amen?
