- What does it mean to change direction? Does it mean that you do the same thing in a different way? Maybe. Does it mean you drop everything and really go in an entirely new direction? Maybe. Does it mean that you begin to follow your inner guidance? YES!
Just randomly discarding everything doesn’t make sense. You have learned a great deal from the old direction. Use it. But use it as your inner sense tells you. Let go of the rules. Follow instead of pushing. You are following the deepest part of you. What does that have to do with business? Everything! Tesla was following what was inside him. That was his genius. He wasn’t following anyone else’s rules except maybe the laws of physics.
All geniuses have been following their inner guidance. That’s what makes them geniuses. So instead of it being a ridiculous way to do business, it’s exactly the way to do it. So what is your inner guidance prompting you to do? What would you do differently if you allowed yourself to?
What direction have you been longing to go in? How can you use everything you’ve learned but in a way that makes deep inner sense to you? What inner voice have you been ignoring?
What does it take to do this? It’s something you do little by little. Every time you follow what is inside you that voice gets a little louder and easier to hear. It’s like any muscle. The more you use it the stronger and more useable it gets. You don’t have to do it all at once. With the inner voice you are following. Pushing will not work here. It will reveal itself to you. Just the opposite of the direction business is going now. Business is going faster and faster. It is pushing. Of course, it’s not all bad. Not at all. But without that inner guidance it will become something else.
So each day do something that your inner guidance is leading you to. A small thing. Nothing huge. I’m all for gathering empirical evidence. Do something then see what happens. Write it down. Don’t take my word or any of the “experts”” words for it. Gather your own data. Then you will truly know.
I promise you this will be the most exciting, enriching, fulfilling time of your life. And, it might be a bit scary. But then anything new is. No biggie.
When you are doing something new it’s wiser not to share it with everything. The reason being that sometimes well meaning people try to talk you out of doing something new. Often people feel threatened when someone close to them begins to behave differently. This puts pressure on them to change as well and often they would rather not.
This is your chance (but you will be given many) to make your life count. This is your chance to honor yourself and why you are here. (You will be given many). Take that chance and feel your full power. (You will be given many.)
I’m rooting for you.
