You DON’T need clarity or confidence…

Most people have their thinking about clarity and confidence the wrong way around.

We want clarity about our next big mission.

We want confidence about the future.

But clarity and confidence rarely work that way. 

One of my friends has been married for over 20 years. His first marriage didn’t work out but he doesn’t feel badly about it. He calls it his practice marriage.

You don’t need clarity or confidence about the future, to get to your next level of success. You need clarity and confidence about your past

Next time you hear yourself saying, “If only I had clarity, then I would know what to do…” Or, “I wish I had the confidence to take my next step…” here’s what to do:

Turn around to review your past:

  • Make a list of all the times you lacked confidence before you started a new job, a new project, a new relationship, or a new business… 
  • Make a list of all the times you lacked clarity at the start of a new job, a new project, a new relationship, or a new business… 
  • Make a list of all the times you failed at something—but when you look back, you gained more confidence and clarity precisely because of each failure… 

You don’t need clarity or confidence about the future, to get to your next level of success. You need clarity and confidence about your past
