In this era of gurus and experts, and “7 secrets to this …” and “3 keys to that …” I wonder if we sometimes don’t lose ourselves looking for the answers. Looking for the quick fix or the magic pill solution. Trying to find that one last piece of the puzzle so we can finally be successful and claim our prize.
But consider this for a moment … What if there are no “secrets” to success?
What if you only need to remember who you are and step back into your own brilliance?
What would happen if you trusted your instincts, your ideas, and just followed them? What if you stopped looking to others for the answer? And you actually believed that YOU already have all the answers you need?
Interesting to think about, isn’t it?
I’ll always seek to learn more, it’s in my nature. Plus, I do believe if we’re not growing we’re slowly dying. However, from this point forward, I plan to own my brilliance and trust in myself more. Everything I learn will go through MY filter, and if it feels good, I’ll consider implementing it. And if it doesn’t, I’ll trust my filter and follow my own internal guidance system.
After all we’re all born with our very own GPS. And when we trust it, it will take us anywhere where we want to go. The challenge is remembering to use it.
As I look back over the past few years, I can see very clearly that when I have trusted and followed my own GPS, I ended up exactly where I wanted to be. And when I followed someone else’s because I just assumed they knew better, I sometimes ended up WAY off course. And yes of course, hindsight is always 20/20. However, I can choose to pass everything through the filter of my OWN glasses going forward, and make a conscious choice about which path to take. And so can you.
