For a long time I was alway trying to figure out what I was going to "do"... put my effort into....Always thinking "okay once I decide which thing to put my effort into, once I decide what I want to do it, that is what I'll be good at it. Until then I'll just be here.. doing these other things because how could I ever be great at something if it's not the one thing I decide to do and be putting 110% effort towards...... you know what, I was wrong! I was/am doing all kinds of things everyday! I like doing lots of things! I didn't have to pick just one. The Jill of all trades master of none... You know what, No! I could be a master of many! And you know what even if I'm not a master of them all I should put my best effort in everything I do".....And you know what happened I started to feel great. Great about all of the things I was doing and stopped searching for something to be the right thing.....
I'll go out on a limb and say everyone feels better when they are trying their best. And it doesn't have to be just one thing you are trying with! When I stopped trying to decide and decided to try my best at everything I was doing and to actually DO them, I started to see progression in many areas of my life! Everything I was already doing was great, and if I wanted to I could be successful at any and all of those things, all I had to do was focus on them when I was in that moment.
How did I do this....
1. I started to live more in the present. That is not to say there was no planning, planning is part of success I started planning on working on things that were currently in progress, or that I wanted to be in progress. Making the things I wanted to happen happen.
2. While working on those thing I started pretending I was a professional at whatever it was I was doing in the present moment. When running I acted as I thought a professional runner would. When selling shoes I was a professional at selling shoes. When I was a trainer, I was a....... you guessed it, professional trainer. The great thing was, no one other then me knew I was pretending, I was just doing! and doing it the best way I knew how.
3. STAY POSITIVE, you would think this was the easiest one, but at times that is far from the truth. For example I am not by any means claiming to be a professional at any of the things above, far from it actually. Which means there is a lot of learning, growing, and even mistakes being made. But as long as I am doing the best that I know how, it feels great!
So in short, what you are doing is up to you and be happy doing it!
