You Already Know!
This afternoon, CJ will have his last “on the road” lesson before he gets his learner’s permit. In truth, I always have my kids on the road before it’s legal for them to do so.
Because a CONFIDENT driver is a SAFE driver. I need my kids to TRUST themselves behind the wheel.
In one of CJ’s first driving lessons with me, I took him to a parking lot to practice pulling into a parking space… and he ended up half in / half out / half to the side, and needed to reverse and start again.
He looked at me and said, “What do I do?” I could have told him which way to turn the wheel in order to back out, but I didn’t.
Because a CONFIDENT driver is a SAFE driver.
Instead, I said, “your body knows what to do. What does your body want to do?”
And he just did it….
The same is true for us in business. We DO already know what needs to be done.
We know what to do about pricing. (We may be SCARED to price that high…. but we DO know what to do.)
We KNOW when we need to fire a client.
We know when we need to let go of that employee.
When we listen to our GUT, we just KNOW. Unfortunately, our world is really loud right now. Our diets keep us hopped up on sugar and the news feed keeps us in fear and social media keeps us CONSTANTLY distracted.
It’s NO WONDER so many people go to GOOGLE instead of just a quiet space in order to figure out what to DO.
I learned to REALLY tune into my OWN intuition when I realized that it was God-given. God created even the birds with an inner navigation system… that guides them on when and how to fly south for the winter. I decided to TRUST that I too — being so much more important to my Creator than the birds of the air– had an inner GPS system.
Birds don’t question their inner GPS system. Why? Because there are NO “fly south for the winter” coaches for these birds. There ARE NO books on how to survive the winter months. There’s no google or Wikipedia for them… no “fly by” date… no newscast to watch for weather changes.
There is ONLY gut.
And, what a GIFT…. The gift of utter simplicity.
This reminds me, of course, of how our great-great-great grandparents did business. No google. No coaches. No chambers of commerce. Just a skill or trade and a willingness to offer it to their neighbors.
Very little NOISE to drown out their inner GPS.
Let me get to the point. Do you need to know what to DO right now? About anything?
Put a pen in your hand, and ask yourself this question:
If I were FULLY walking out my purpose, what would be the most ALIGNED action I can take right now?
If you want IN to our “mental toughness” immersion experience, we start July 31st. We’re calling this: YOU, Fully Confidenced. (A hybrid word that marries an INNER confidence and being FULLY convinced of what you are called to do.) This 30-day journey will allow you to bet — first and always — on yourself. It will bring you to a place where you are stronger, more authentic, bolder, mentally and emotionally SURE-FOOTED.
It’s a beautiful boot camp for the mind… the heart… the SOUL.
But, most of all it will create CLARITY & CONFIDENCE in your ultimate goals and potential. it will FOREVER remove the whole “playing small” thing, the entire “settling” game. No more 2 steps forward, 3 steps back.
