So, how many chronic avoiders do we have in the house? By a show of hands? (Both of us are raising our own hands … whoops.)
OK, well since this is the Internet and it’s hard to gauge how many of you are actually the kind of people who shut down, procrastinate, deliberate, over-think and massively avoid stuff when faced with a decision … we’re going to just presume this is happening to a lot of you. That’s why it’s this week’s #ClarityGem …
[hr style=”1″ /]
THIS WEEK, WE WANT YOU TO KNOW:
APPLY IT TO YOUR OWN LIFE:
It’s actually really normal not to know the answer to everything. (Does anyone?)
So, it’s not unreasonable when you say, “I don’t know” when faced with any sort of decision, especially when that decision is a difficult one.
What is unreasonable is the fact that most “I don’t know’s” morph into convenient excuses for not doing something.
Because if you “don’t know,” you aren’t allowed to move forward. And since moving forward is often scary, not knowing what to do is something we’ll drag out for months (or even longer) by way of procrastination, avoidance, shutting down, and over-thinking … “not knowing” becomes a very convenient safety blanket.
So, do you genuinely not know … or are you refusing to know so that you can stay put?
What will you admit that you might actually know the answer to … that you’ve been avoiding knowing for fear of moving forward?
TELL US HOW YOU TOOK ACTION:
Use #ClarityGems on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to share how you’re applying this week’s Gem to your own life, and to see how other people are being inspired.
WHAT #CLARITYGEMS ARE ALL ABOUT:
Sometimes it’s just better to avoid long blog posts and cut straight to the point!
Think of #ClarityGems as your weekly shake of the good ‘ole Magic 8 Ball … you never know what might bubble up, and how it might be exactly what you need to hear today.
And instead of just a beautiful, inspirational, and shareable image (which is a nice start), we’re giving you some quick thoughts about how to apply it to your life … because inspiration without action is pretty, but kind of anti-climatic.
Tweet it, share it on Instagram, or forward it along to someone who needs to hear it today … and tag us (@ClarityonFire) to let us know how this Gem applies to you!
