Have you ever put something off or not taken the next step simply because you were confused about what came next?
Well, I’m pretty sure all of us have done this at one point or another.
The problem with this is when we’re not clear on what comes next, we often do one of two things. We either become information-gathers who run around in circles or we do nothing at all.
But here’s the thing, in life there’s always going to be seasons where you’re confused. That’s why it’s so important for you to become comfortable in the confusion and realize that any time you put yourself out there in a new way, it will be uncomfortable and confusing, but it’s a necessary part of growth.
For me, whenever I’m confused, I look at it as an opportunity to meet new people, to ask for help, to invest in myself and to stretch in a new way. In other words, I look at every instance of confusion as another opportunity to create something magical, and I hope after today’s episode you do too.
