We need the exact steps to take.
We need the fail-proof words to say.
We need the secret recipe for success.
But the truth is, the how is not nearly as important as we make it out to be.
It’s the belief in ourselves and what’s possible for us that gets us from here to there.
Because when you have that belief, you figure out the steps.
Because when you have that belief, you tweak and adjust till things fall into place.
Because when you have that belief, you tinker with the ingredients till what you are cooking up is as tasty as you want it to be.
If you believe in yourself and what’s possible for you, the how will follow and sort itself out.
Not through magic.
But because you stick with it.
Because you are ok with failing lots and learning lots more.
Because you keep working at it.
Because you keep taking plenty of micro-actions – even the crazy, silly, oh-my-will-this-really-work?! ones.
Because you keep adjusting and tweaking – eyes on the goal, feet in the mud.
That person you admire so much?
They can explain exactly what they did – in hindsight.
But they could never have predicted every step of the way upfront.
They figured it out, one step at a time.
And so can you.
You ARE resourceful.
You ARE talented and smart.
You ARE creative enough to figure it out.
And when you truly see, value and believe that, making your goal happen simply becomes a natural, inevitable consequence.
