You have a funky little process. Oh yeah! Check it out.
Even though parts of your process may be a little "funky," it takes you down the path toward clarity and action. Becoming aware of how you operate is vital to your success, particularly the parts of your process that you judge, over-think or worry about.
Here’s a story to illustrate:
Years ago, I was sitting in a circle in a leadership program, and one of my close friends was sharing how frustrated she was with her apathy. She was feeling sad and useless. Our mentor turned to her and said, “What if apathy is part of your process?”
A lightbulb went off. Instead of her apathy being a problem, it was actually a vital stopping place on her road to clarity and action. She could stop feeling bad about her apathy and instead, celebrate it!
I took a close look at my own unique little process. Every so often, I make a stop in Freak Out Land. Years ago when the self-doubt and general panic cropped up, I’d freak out even more with the fear that I would be stuck there forever and that something was WRONG with me.
Not only was something not wrong with me or my freak out or your (fill in the blank),there was something very right!
Now, I see clearly that FREAK OUT is an energetic stopping place for me. It’s like I have to rev my engine with some panic before I move to courage and action. The freak out springs me forward to clarity and determination. Without that weird little stop on the road, my creativity and forward motion would stall.
Some of my clients stop in indifference, or boredom, or crying, or worry about the future or doubt that their idea could ever work or fear that this is the time they’re really gonna blow it. What's your weird little stop on the road to clarity and movement?
You have an amazing, weird little process, and now you can stop worrying about it. It’s vital to your success.
