Don't Let The
..."I Don't Know" Syndrom Keep You From Getting What You Want! It’s funny how people will tell you that they want to get ahead in life, that they want to do big things, how they want to do some thing different, how tired they are of doing what they are doing. But when you ask them what they want to do...,
they tell you that they don’t know. And they sometimes say it as if they are bothered by the question and don’t want to think about it, because it doesn’t make sense! But if you listen closely, that’s not the real issue…
Here's a typical situation. See if you know anyone like this: "He" has a job. Doesn’t really like it a whole lot or is getting tired of the long hours. Doesn’t have much time for hobbies or going to the gym or happy hour with friends or spending time with the family, because he’s always travelling and away from home. Either that or he often works long hours and is so tired when he comes home that he doesn't feel like going out, being sociable or spending quality time with the family. His friends are slowly getting tired of asking him to come out, because most of the time he's either away or tired or has some other excuse why he can't come out. Pretty soon they won’t ask anymore and he’ll come home one day and his friends will have new friends and he'll be left alone. He knows though that he’s not really happy. He knows that he would rather be doing something else, but he doesn’t know what.
Is it worth it? Life is passing us by. If you are not already, put yourself in this guy’s shoes. To know that there is something else you would rather do in life, but to not know what it is and what’s worse, to let the fact that you don’t know, just linger on in your mind without trying to figure it out? Days pass and turn into weeks, months, years and before you know it, either you don’t even think about it anymore, because you have just accepted the routine as being normal or when you are forced to talk about it, you continue to allow yourself to answer “I don’t know.” And then you drop it.
So why am I telling you this? Because you really have two choices. You can either continue to do what you’re doing and be unhappy and continue to hang out with those so-called friends who are doing the “grind” just like you; all of you, auto-convincing yourselves that there is no better way to live your life than the way you are right now or, you can do SOMETHING about it. ANYTHING! Because there are alternatives to working as hard as you are right now and where, if you so choose, you can make just as much or even more money with less effort. If you want more free time, if you want to make more money with less effort. If you would like to spend more quality time with your family, take breaks in the middle of the day, take a day off whenever you want, get up late, take nice vacations, not have to worry about how much money you are spending…well, you get the message, then the next time someone asks you what you would rather do in life, don’t let the words “I Don’t Know” stop you from living your dreams! You need to dig deep inside yourself to find the answers that are already there. If you haven't heard of the Law of Attraction, it is worth a look. Whether you believe in it or not it is a law of nature. Wealth Beyond Reason
‘I don’t know’ is laziness. ‘I don’t know’ is an excuse not to think anymore. It is not an answer. It is a dead end. It weakens you. It means surrender. It let’s you slide. It sucks the life out of you year after year after year, because you have so gotten used to saying it…about everything, that you don’t even realize it. ‘I don’t know is nothing! STOP IT! And take control of your life before it’s too late. If you are like most people, you will say to yourself, “Well, that was an interesting article. I’ll think about it.” You’ll never do anything about it and you know it. Look yourself in the mirror and tell yourself the truth. But don’t finish the conversation with yourself with “I don’t know”!
You are not alone. Many people feel stuck in their niche in life and don’t know how to get out. Don’t give up. Keep asking yourself! The answer is inside of you, you just have to bring it out? Here are some questions that might help you the next time you find you telling yourself “I don’t know what I would rather do.”:
If you want your dreams t come true, you can get someone to help you figure out how to do it, but you have to do your part too. Just like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, you have to put your shoes on, get ready, close your eyes , click your heels together and say, “There’s no place like where I’d rather be right now.”. See it. Believe it. Look yourself in the mirror and tell yourself the truth about what your heart is telling you and the next thing you know you will be airborne, your ‘house’ will be spinning, and it will land on top of the wicked “I Don’t Know witch of the West” and then finally…You will be home.
