When You Don’t Know What to Do

Have you ever been up against the wall, afraid of what will happen? Stuck not knowing what to do?

We all hit walls in our lives. It happens when we become so focused on “figuring out what to do” that our brains actually lock up.

It’s as though we’ve forgotten how to look anywhere but at the oncoming wall. Instead of slowing down, the trance loop in our minds actually hurtles us forward with ever-increasing speed.

And we smash into something we could easily have avoided.

Consider this simple fact: When you are stuck in not knowing what to do, what’s really happening is that you are at choice — and are refusing to make the decision! Perhaps all you see before you is disaster, so you’re afraid to choose. Or you may be paralyzed by analysis of the situation you’re in.

Regardless of the reason, by not deciding, you are abdicating you ability to respond consciously. You are choosing not to choose. More importantly, you’re choosing not to trust yourself.

The next time you find yourself speeding toward the wall of catastrophe:

  • Stop.
  • Become aware of the physical sensations in your body.
  • Observe the emotions in your mind without judgment.
  • Then use the tool called Mapping the Now to bring yourself into the Creative Moment.

You are in a position of choice. It’s the greatest power you have.
