You Don’t Have to Have it Figured Out
Happy Motivation Monday! Not only is it a bit late as I’m writing this, but I was also a bit late in posting yesterday’s post (a review of Gabrielle Bernstein’s “Miracles Now,” as well as 6 other books I’ve read lately!), so I’ll be light on text today. However, I hope today’s concept makes you think, and allows you to recognize that wherever you are, you’re doing great.
I was listening to a podcast yesterday on which an entrepreneur was talking about the feeling of never being ‘there.’ As a person who constantly strives for self-improvement and always pushes myself to reach further / achieve more / get a bit better, I related to this a lot. However, over the course of his career, the entrepreneur realized that it was OK to just enjoy the ride rather than to have a precise plan of how to get to the next major milestone. It’s something I’m personally not great at doing, but I work on it constantly. I’m a planner at heart, and I always like to know how I’m going to get to the next step, but I also recognize that, sometimes, that can steal the joy from the journey.
So today, I encourage you to take a step back, wherever you are on your journey, and realize that where you are is exactly where you need to be. You don’t need to have it all figured out to move forward, and every step you take is still great progress. Happy Monday!
So tell me in the comments … Are you a planner or a go-with-the-flow type person? What is one thing you don’t have totally figured out, but you’re moving forward anyways?
