Well, it was few words. A sentence.
But not exactly my point here.
When you feel stuck, the best is to DO NOTHING.
We are programmed to take action, push forward, hustle, look at what we did wrong…
but in the times, when you feel like you are not on your own path, the best thing is to be still.
Wait for the inspiration,
wait for that word
that will put everything back together.
I’m sure you’ve guessed I have a story about it 🙂
These past few weeks have been hard.
It started with a hateful message,
then shaming on a “friend’s” wall,
then I heard some bad rumours about my company,
I shared a challenge that no one wanted
and it just went downwards.
I’ve been there before and let me tell you,
even if I know what to do, it’s still hard.
And I just kept procrastinating.
Actually journaling, reading, watching videos,
thinking, doing nothing…
And today it came!
One sentence that put everything in place 🙂
It just clicked.
Do you want to know what it was?
STOP BEING SELFISH!
IT’S NOT ABOUT YOU.
IT’S ABOUT THEM.
THINK HOW YOU CAN GIVE BEFORE WHAT YOU CAN GET.
You see, when people ask me what I do, I always answer:
I INSPIRE OTHERS TO LIVE THEIR DREAMS.
Yet lately I made it all about myself.
I cared more what I will get from it then how I will help others.
I worried about the sales, the income, the products
instead who I can help, how I can help and what I can do to inspire more people.
Well, honestly, I think I’m not that bad 🙂
I have so much fun with the podcast where we truly inspire and motivate and it’s not about me at all.
But those words…
they didn’t make me think,
they didn’t make me plan,
or create something new,
or even repurpose something old.
They changed the whole picture, in a moment.
Like those lightning bolts that illuminate everything,
the a-ha moments that make perfect sense…
No, I don’t write to brag, or to tell you about my plans (although they are pretty exciting but you’ll get to know about them soon);
I just want to remind you…
I’ve heard many stories lately (while interviewing my guests for the podcast) about that one moment, one word, one sentence, that made the biggest impact, cause the breakthrough, brought that hidden strength forth… that changed lives.
When things don’t go as you planned or expected,
when you feel you are working hard, but don’t love it,
when you feel stuck and blocked…
BE STILL AND LISTEN.
And when you don’t bombard your brain with to-do’s and task and worries and gossip, you’ll create the space and allow the real wisdom in, the wisdom that will come from your heart. That will make sense and everything will be back in flow.
