Confused? What if you knew what to do?
So often when we are faced with a challenge, or a new task, or a tough goal, our mind guides us into confusion.
It brings up thoughts like ‘I don’t know what to do’, ‘I don’t know where and how to start’, ‘I don’t know how to do this’.
The result of feeling confused is, of course, feeling stuck and overwhelmed.
And not doing anything.
We can get ourselves out of confusion and indecision by asking ourselves
- ‘If I did know what to do, what would I do?
- And then, what would I do next?’
Now our mind has a clear task it can focus on, it has a problem to solve. All we have to do is to give our mind time and space to think.
It might need some practice but soon your mind will get used to focus on finding answers and solutions instead of spinning around in confusion.
Answer your questions in writing
It’s a good idea to put your thoughts down in writing. Writing slows us down and allows us to process our thoughts better.
Get out a pen and some paper and start writing.
Write out your problem and then write out the question,
Trust yourself, your mind will find the answers.
