It seems like such a small question, but it also seems to cause the most distress in people. The uncanny need to know why for everything. Why is that???
My Coach recently told me I have to give up my “need to know why” before I do anything, or I will not continue to move forward. At first, I was a little taken back. BUT, how do I know if I’m making the right choice? How do I know that this is what I need? How do I feel comfortable and confident? Whew!!! Lots of fear there!!
In thinking about this need to know why, I realized that needing to know is only a defense mechanism to prevent me from making a mistake. Why am I so afraid of making a mistake? Well, my best guess is all the past mistakes that I’ve made have made me fearful of what others are going to say, and of “not being right”.
My biggest breakthrough was “WHO CARES!!” Really, who cares if I make a mistake. Mistakes are only bad if they make you run the other way or give up on a dream. For the most part, mistakes are forgiven and you move on, learning from their mere presence in your life.
So, what is your reason behind your WHY??? Spend a few moments thinking about this and then GIVE IT UP!!!!!
Till next time.
Happiness & Joy,
