Confidence Before Strategy
I often hear people mutter the sentiment that when they figure out a plan for their lives then they will feel more confident. But it just doesn’t work that way.
The problem with this, is that by waiting for confidence they will attempt to figure out which way they want to go in life from a perspective of scarcity and lack. They will give themselves the short end of the stick in the realm of what’s possible for them and end up creating a glorified to-do list. When they lack confidence, they will always hold themselves back by creating their own glass ceiling. Have you seen people do this?
Instead of focusing on what you want to do, think now about who you want to be. Who do you need to be to reach higher?
But for those of you who spend time and effort learning how to stand more firmly in your strength first, you will create a lens to color the world in a way that offers up a higher level of opportunity and possibility. You will see that you are capable of so much more and will reach for greater heights. From that position, thinking strategically about your life comes much easier, and with a greater degree of creativity and problem solving capability.
So instead of focusing on what you want to do, think now about who you want to be. Who do you need to be to reach higher? Or perhaps, what traits do you need to do without in order to take your lives and your results to the next level? People who see the world though a lens of abundance will break through the glass above them every time.
