Trust your gut and accept that you don’t know what you’re doing

Trust your gut

There’s a strength, honesty, and vulnerability in accepting that you don’t know what you’re doing most of the time.

Let’s face it. None of us knows what we’re doing. But we all love to pretend on Facebook and Instagram.

Or do you? When you sink down on the couch with a heavy feeling – because you’re tired of all the pretence.

You’ve become so good at it. You even fooled yourself. Thinking that following society’s expectations would bring you success and happiness. The safe and sure path, tried by many before you, that’s the best bet for success, right?

Get an education. Find a nice corporate job. And then get to the rest of society’s to-do list: the house, the children, enjoyment at retirement.

Whose success? And whose happiness are you living for?

You sort of trick yourself into thinking that the other people who have followed this path knew what they were doing. So, it must be all good.

What about your gut feeling? The one you used to be best friends with in the past, who feels so ignored that recently she decided to stop calling. What has she been telling you?

Where is your curiosity leading you?

Nobody knows what they’re doing. Luckily, we all have these gut feelings that tell us if something feels right (curiosity) or wrong (contraction) for us.

Experiment. Train yourself to find what feels good, and with each curious action, your self-confidence builds.

You’ll find yourself in the unknown.

Adventure awaits when you allow yourself to explore


If you are ready to accept that you don’t know what you’re doing, and start experiment anyway, I invite you to participate in the 10 days of Adventure Challenge from December 9th until December 18th!

Let’s start believing in ourselves and go for our dreams! Someone out there is waiting to hear your story.

It’s never too late, all you need to do is take the first step!
