“I don’t know what I want to do.”
This is one of the most common phrases my clients say. So, if you’re saying it right now, you’re not alone! Here’s the thing I’ve learned over the last 20+ years. People who say,”I don’t know what I want to do,” do know. They’re just afraid to say it.
What they may not know is the “how.” If it will work. How they will make the change. If it will be financially sustainable. How it will fit into the life they have now.
Because the how is unclear; they shut down the desire. Desiring something, but not knowing how, or if they’ll get what they want is scary and can feel very vulnerable. They don’t want to be disappointed, look foolish, or “fail.”
But they do know what they want to do.
Here’s the thing, the path to a Big Vision is rarely clear. That’s why it’s called a Big Vision. It’s a dream. A wish. A desire. Something that comes from your imagination. You have to start there.
The plan and the path will reveal itself over time. You just need to take small actions and do small experiments to figure out. (That’s why I offer subscribers a Big Vision, Small Steps Workbook). It’s only by taking small actions, and learning from them, that the path towards your Big Vision will become clear.
Last week, I made a little video about this common occurrence. You can watch it below. If the video player doesn’t show up, you can watch it on Vimeo, or on Instagram.
