“But you don’t understand. I need to get it ALL sorted by tomorrow!”
Do you ever feel that way too?
Sometimes, by the time my clients come to me to talk about what’s troubling them, they’ve been bottling things up for so long that it’s as if they feel compelled to “make up” for the delays that have happened in their life.
One of the big problems, however, with this “rush to be successful” is … that’s not how it happens for 99.999% of people who gain success in whatever they do.
And also, even those who post on Facebook, Instagram & who are ‘self-appointed success gurus’ have are actually playing fast’n’loose with their truths, since stuff takes longer than they’ve made out.
So if you’re someone who’s feeling that time’s running out & you’ve “gotta get it all sorted NOW”, here’s a great quote that I’ve recently discovered, courtesy of Barbara Huson, an amazing Wealth Coach in the US of A.
It’s by actresses, Julianne Moore.
“You don’t start out thinking, I’m going to be a star!
You think, I hope I get an agent.
Then, I hope I get an audition.
Then, I hope I get a job.
If you think too far ahead, it’s just overwhelming.
It’s better to just keep on going, bit by bit, one foot in front of the other.”
From what I know that method’s worked turned out quite well for her, so perhaps you’d do well to give it a go, too … just take one step at a time, & keep on stepping.
Are you stuck, undecided about something you need to do or deal with?
Grab a piece of paper (or open up your note-taking app) and answer jot down the answers to the following questions:
Q1: What have you not yet said today, or done today, that you know that, if you say it or do it, that your life (or business) will move forwards dramatically?
Q2: How are you going to be losing out today by not doing / saying that / dealing with that issue?
Q3: How’s that going to effect you over the next couple of weeks / months?
Q4: And what about over the next six / twelve months?
Then, walk with me for a moment; take yourself in your mind’s eye to a place about twelve month’s from now & ask yourself …
Q5: “How do I feel about leaving those things un-done, not dealt with for a whole year?”
Notice how it feels like.
Listen to what you tell yourself.
See how you’re living, what work you’re doing, how your relationships are shaping up.
Q6: How does that feel to you, now you know what your future’s going to be?
Q7: And now you’ve seen that, the future that your current path’s going to take you to, what’s the first two things you can do to begin to steer your life in a better direction, one that doesn’t hit those rocks, but one that takes you to the sunnier islands of plenty?
If you’re ready to, post your answers to the questions below (or you can email me if you prefer) & I’ll give you some further bespoke questions & work with you to help you shape your destiny, to help you fashion a creation you’ll be amazed that you’re living it.
