Ever feel jumbled and like you’re really not sure where to put your energy, what to do first, or where the heck to turn? We’ve all been there.
That said, some stay longer than is neccessary! It’s temporary.
There’s no need to camp out at Confusion Junction.
It’s a decision point, for sure. However uncomfortable it may feel to be there, this place can really serve as a powerful launch pad for what’s next.
While sometimes hard to read the signs, Confusion Junction is right at the corners of Creation Ave. and New Possibilities Blvd. 🙂
Seriously. When you find yourself thinking that the answer to every question is “I don’t know” … consider this:
If you did know, what would the answer be?
Based on your experiences up ’til now, what DO you know about what you want – and what you don’t want? (Hint: Nobody knows this answer better than you.)
If you were to let go of judgements about what’s practical, or realistic, or others’ opinions about what you should or shouldn’t be doing, what would you do?
As yours answers to these questions start to come, get as specific as possible. I hear from Create Your Life! dreamers a lot, things like “I want more freedom” or “I want more love” or “I want more money” and that’s in the right direction, but let’s be honest, it’s also vague.
So do a check-in for yourself … Are YOU being vague in terms of your intentions and what you are looking to create?
Know that just by the act of setting an intention, you instantly align your energy and focus with the path that you desire.
So, before doing anything else, take a moment to consider…
- What’s your intention for the next 6-12 months of your life?
- How do you want to feel?
- What is the energy you want to be swimming in?
- What are the physical manifestations of what you want to create? In other words, how will you know when you’ve gotten there?
In each moment, what you do and what you think, creates your future. So the thoughts you are thinking and the actions you are taking right now, in a sense, are your crystal ball.
From exactly where you ARE, you have the opportunity to DECIDE, as the creator of your own experience, which direction you’re heading. Getting on the path is the first step.
4 Steps To Take When You Don’t Know What To Do
STEP 1. Make An “I Could…” List
What are all the next steps you COULD take? Make an “I could” brain dump. List as many action steps as you can think of that you could take. List them out as they come to you, in any order.
STEP 2. Prioritize Your List
Once you have a solid list of things that you COULD do, begin to arrange your list into the order that makes the most sense based on the future you are wanting. And as you do, be careful not to slip into this become an “I should…” list!
STEP 3. Commit & Decide
Ask yourself: What next step or steps could I take right away?
I will __________________ by ______________________.
- Are your next steps specific?
- Are they measurable?
- Do they have a due date?
- Are they challenging but doable, for you, right now?
If yes…Good for you!
STEP 4. Put It On Your Calendar
Your calendar is a reflection of how you spend your time on this earth.
Put your next steps on your calendar and then begin right away to take the necessary action. Be sure celebrate these action steps, however small, because there really is no such thing as a small step forward.
