Stop Thinking You Have All The Answers

May 15, 2012

… trust me you don’t.

If life was as easy as that, no one would ever have to come to this huge earthly classroom of learning. If we had all the answers to every challenge, what would be the point of going through that challenge?

Sometimes we get stuck on a page – the content is boring, we can’t get through the chapter, we have read the same passage over and over again, logic would dictate that we need to read on if change is ever going to be found. When we learn to turn the page and push beyond the boredom of that page, we bring new insights to the table, we breathe a fresh outcome into our situation. 

Certainty narrows and uncertainty broadensWhen you stop thinking that you have all the answers, you free up the energy to bring you new solutions you have never even dreamed of. Don’t keep yourself trapped in your same habitual patterns. When you learn to think outside the box, new situations, new people and certainly new outcomes become more readily available. When you think you know all the answers and have seen it all and done it all, you lock yourself down in a repetitive pattern that is very dense and heavy. When you learn to abandon your “trusted remedies” life has a way of opening up in amazing and very suprising ways. Let go and surrender is the name of the game – the game that will undoubtedly yield you the greatest results.

Controlling your every move, and going through life with blinders on is akin to sleepwalking your way through it. Why bother? The point of life is to leverage every rich experience and to grow from that experience. We do not grow by repeating the same calculated strategies. Live your life with as much color and zest as you can muster. Stop thinking you have all the answers, you might just learn something new. Remember certainty narrows, uncertainty broadens. It is when you think you have all the answers that is just the time to abandon ship and learn to swim!

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
