This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from an individual who wishes to remain anonymous.
David, I just can't get started. I have so many ideas floating around my head that I don't know where to begin. They sound exciting and then when I start to work on them, it just doesn't feel good enough or the market is so saturated it feels fruitless.
I'm struggling with my purpose, what I should do with my life. It's truly leaving me lost and depressed because I can't figure it out. I've read everything on finding your purpose, spent thousands of dollars trying to figure this out with all the “guru” books/events out there and alas, I'm still at square 1.
Great question, and one I know many entrepreneurs who want to start their own business struggle with.
There's a lot of chaos going on in your mind right now, so let's look to the truth and shine the light on some of those lies.
First, there is no such thing as a mistake. Everything you do, regardless of the results you experience, is bringing you closer to truth. All of those experiences force you to grow, and in the growth, you begin to discover who you are and what you want for your life.
Many entrepreneurs hesitate to get started on an idea because they are afraid of making a mistake. Actually they aren't afraid of the mistake itself, they are afraid of what other people will think about their decision and outcome.
So you must first DECIDE.
Choose ONE of your ideas. It doesn't really matter which one, just choose one that inspires you the most.
Then take ACTION on that decision. Don't worry about the results, don't fret about what people will think, and don't stop.
You see, Spirit won't give you your entire plan. You must take action on the first step before the 2nd step will be shown. If you never take action, you'll never see the next opportunity.
If you should fall flat on your first idea, be grateful for what you've learned from it, and continue to look for the next opportunity. It WILL be there.
You will either win or you will learn, in which case, either outcome is a GIFT.
