“There comes a time to stop looking back and trying to figure out why. At some point, we need to shift our attention to what’s next.” – Unknown
Are your thoughts or fears paralyzing you before you’ve even reached a goal? Are you asking yourself questions, such as: Why am I unclear? Why don’t I know what I want to do? Why can’t I move forward? Yikes. I get anxious just thinking about it.
Today, I want to talk about removing those types of disempowering questions from your brain and replacing them instead with “what’s next?” Sure, I get it. Those questions come from a place of uncertainty and fear and they’re hard to stop. But know that most entrepreneurs (including myself) are willing to explore their curiosity even if that nagging voice in their heads tells them they’re crazy or that it doesn’t fit in with “where they’re at.” They don’t let themselves get STUCK. If they feel called to try something new, they do it regardless of the risk.
“The people who are the happiest are the ones who are most willing to explore all the little soul hits.”
Take the Earn Your Happy podcast as an example. It wasn’t something that I had on my to-do list. At the end of the day,
“I wanted to have epic conversations with people and I wanted an excuse to do it,”
And well, you know the ending to that story because here we are. You don’t have to have a plan to move forward. You just have to,
“Be willing to put yourself out there and fail.”
By avoiding any possibility of failure, you risk missing the message you were supposed to hear and possibly something you were called to do.
So, what’s next? My advice… Ask more empowering questions (ditch those that don’t serve you anything more than a side of anxiety) and explore the resources around you. Run toward the failure and thank it for what it’s teaching you.
And one more Earn Your Happy Tip for the road…the more you can fail the better.
