“Confusion is the welcome mat at the door of creativity.” — Michael Gelb
When people come to me for my help and are in a state of confusion, when they’ve reached a personal intersection and don’t know which way to turn, I sometimes suggest to them that perhaps they are not yet at the place of decision-making. Perhaps they are at the all-important place right before the decision. The place of confusion, frustration, impatience, despair...any number of difficult feelings.
It’s the storm before the breaking light of dawn, the time of troubled thoughts and mixed emotions just before the breakthrough of clarity. It’s actually a very important place to be, because you know that the next step will be one of courage and forward momentum. Can you trust that about yourself?
Consider this: Sit with your confusion. Sleep on it. Go for a walk. Meditate/pray/ponder the infinite possibilities that lie before you. Imagine being told that whatever you choose will be the correct path for you, and you can’t fail even if you try.
