Keep Waiting A Little Longer Til You Can Act From Inspiration Not Desperation

I’m often in a quandary about my next step. And it’s often because I think I need to be doing something, that it’s my move. And so, I do something, anything to try to move things forward.


And it feels a little desperate, too much like I’m efforting i.e. trying too hard. And it usually doesn’t work out.


We’ve all heard that saying, ‘if it’s to be, it’s up to me’. It gives the impression that you must be working hard, doing all the work. And I’m fond of working hard, I really am…just not all the time. And especially not when the way forward is not clear.


That calls for waiting. Waiting for what, you ask? Until inspiration hits. How will you know when it hits? You’ll know because it comes out of the blue, but the idea resonates, it feels right, you feel happy, you feel positive when you think it. That’s inspiration.


I love that feeling, especially if I can be patient enough to wait for it. And if I can trust enough that it will come, it always does.

Try this ONE thing


Next time you’re struggling to know the next step, can you stop and wait to be inspired and then act?


 

Want to experience coaching? I like to start with a deep, get-to-know-you conversation to see if we are right for each other. Sometimes we talk for one or two hours at no charge. I have no goal except to bring about transformation. Together we work on the lies, the self-deception, and the fears of the power you perceive to be outside yourself. We work on your difficulties in making decisions and your inability thus far to make bold choices in life and to follow through and trust yourself completely to do so.


The irony for some people is that the very thing that they want the coaching for (an indecisive, half-hearted life) is what’s keeping them from deciding whether to get coaching.
