I remember what it was like to pretend.
I used to pretend a lot.
I used to pretend I wasn't some weird New Age psychic Empath.
I used to pretend that I wasn't hearing voices in my head telling me which way to go.
I used to pretend I was lost.
And I used to pretend all of that simply because I was being who I was expected to be. I don't really know who expected it but there it was, expectation.
And the desire to fit in.
And the desire to succeed.
And the desire to appear normal.
So I'd make up things that I didn't know just to have the opportunity to appear normal. I'd snatch up classes and books and all assortments of shelf help and smart business tools.
What I've discovered after being an Entrepreneur for about 16 years now is this... I KNEW EVERYTHING I NEEDED TO KNOW BEFORE I LOOKED OUTSIDE FOR ANSWERS.
"Your intuition will tell you where you need to go; it will connect you with people you should meet; it will guide you toward work that is meaningful for you - work that brings you joy, work that feels right for you." - Shakti Gawain
Yeah, about that. Work comes with some extra expectations on top of our personal ones doesn't it? Like somehow we HAVE to know more and be smarter.
I knew everything I needed to know before I looked outside for answers.
Because if I got quiet, my intuition knew exactly what to do next. If I had followed the small tiny little not-so-glamorous not-so-result-oriented actions that my inner voice was telling me to take?
I don't know what my trajectory would have been... but I know what it has been since I really truly started listening and taking the steps that don't make sense.
And they have been my most successful profitable and easy years.
So consider this during the week...
Are you really listening?
