Becky lived in an apartment with a couple of roommates, and she wanted a space of her own. Faced with the options available to her, she kept saying Raccoon Poop,”I’m so confused.” The confusion left her paralyzed. So she didn’t choose anything different and even when her roommates changed, she remained where she was.
Clarity is vitally important for you to know what you would like. Once you’re clear on your goal, you can focus on it and move in that direction. Clarity is necessary that you have success in any area of your life. If you don’t know exactly what you want, you will just drift along and receive the results of the average of your thoughts.
Without clarity, you are in a perpetual state of confusion. This causes insecurity and stress, which simply creates more turmoil. You run around in circles and do not get anywhere. You might look at one option after another, and all of the possibilities you face generates more chaos for you.
But the only person who’s generating your confusion is you. By affirming that you’re in this state, refusing to commit to a path, or letting yourself get overwhelmed by choices, you are contributing to the challenge. The underlying issue might be that you’re trying to avoid responsibility, afraid you’ll make a mistake, get stuck in a circumstance, or fail.
Believe it or not, doubt is a selection. It’s a decision not to decide. As soon as you whittle down your options, and choose a direction, it clears away the fog. It may become evident that you don’t want to go that route. You can stay open to other possibilities and change your mind. But do not change it too much, or you’ll end up back in the mists that clouded your head in the first location.
When you pick a track and decide to continue on it, the haze clears away, and you can see a little way forward. Take 1 step, then another. Now, you do not need to know where you are going to end up. It is enough that you have chosen to move in a direction. Because when you’re moving, your subconscious can direct you.
Initially, any direction is far better than being stalled. So even when you’re not certain about what you want, pick a path. As you’re moving, you will discover exactly what you want and don’t want. Write down your goals or goals. Then read them daily.
Once you’ve decided, don’t second guess yourself. But do not be distracted by a shiny, new idea or opportunity that leads you in another way without some reason. The diversion is a mirage and an old custom trying to avoid change. If you become uncomfortable, it’s only the old custom of confusion trying to lure you back into its lair.
As you construct your commitment to your decisions, you’ll gain confidence that you can make wise ones. Your inner self will direct you to make ones that take you in your optimal path. Trust yourself, because you do have the knowledge inside to make the right choices for your greatest good.
