The most difficult thing about uncertainty is the anguish we feel to find an answer.  It’s almost suffocating at times.  There is always the temptation of asking someone what they think about it and follow their advice instead of listening to what your wise self wants to tell you.

Most people you ask will tell you that you are smart, capable and that you should just go for it.  You are then stuck with a project or an idea that confirms all the wonderful qualities you have because others told you so.  Sometimes a project that will confirm just how clever and inspiring you are is simply not right for you a this point.  And it hurts to let go.  The idea is just to perfect.  It matches your story, your experience, it might even bring you a lot of money; it’s just what you should do.  Or is it?

Resist the temptation to search for answers outside of yourself.  Look inside, let go of the story, understand that you are intelligent, smart, inspiring and you don’t need a project or an idea to prove it.  If you decide to go for it, do it for your own reasons, in order to stretch yourself and not because you should.

Be patient with the quest.  It might take a while until you feel you are ready to let go of the idea/project or to embrace it.  The most important thing is to know that you decided for yourself.  You are a winner when you take your own side.

With energy,
