In the previous post, I gave you three questions to ask yourself. I can tell you what happened for most of you. Most of you had an immediate answer to the question, but then you dismissed it just as quickly as it came to you. Then you were left with “I don’t know.”
I know this because this is how it happened for me for a long time. I know this also because I know how the brain works. Our brain likes to be as efficient as possible. It does not like to work hard so it chooses to do what it is used to doing, what is easy. But I’m here to tell you, do not let yourself off the hook. Force your brain to answer.
So in this case, you ask it “What would I do for free to serve others?” You have an answer but there are other things to consider with that answer (How will I do that? Who is going to believe me? How will I get the money?) so it quickly dismisses it and defaults to what’s easy, “I don’t know.” Keep in mind that all of this happens in a matter of seconds, so quick that you don’t even realize it unless you’re really paying attention to it. At this point, you should ask your brain another question, “If I did know, what would I do?” Force. Yourself. To. Answer.
I can’t tell you how important this step is. Staying in “IDK” world will keep you stuck in confusion where you will just be existing and not experiencing life in the way that you are meant to experience it. This is likely what you have been doing up until now and you owe it to yourself to do something different. Try it. Ask yourself the hard questions and make yourself give you an answer.
I am here if you need someone to ask you the hard questions and force you to give an answer. And I’m really good at it too! Request a call for a FREE mini-session and let’s do it.
