What Do I DO With My Mindset When I Don't Know What I Want?
This week's question for Conscious Contact was asked by Joan S.
This Week's Question:
Things are going pretty well for me. I've overcome a lot of hurdles, and things are finally evening out. I keep hearing that growth is essential, but I don't really have anything clear to focus on right now. No set goals. I'm trying to figure out what's next. I know mindset matters, so what do I do with my mind when I don't really know what I want?
Fantastic question, Joan. Thanks for asking it.
First of all, congratulations on making it over the hurdles you've faced. I hope you're taking some time to acknowledge and celebrate that.
Secondly, you're right...we ARE either growing or dying, there is no standing still, so we do want to be consciously growing ALL the time. But it doesn't always need to mean major change and gigantic leaps.
Mindset DOES matter, and that makes sense to us when we have clear goals to achieve shining before us. When we're slowly moving ahead, deciding what to do next, it can seem muddier.
But there is one tried and true thing that we can focus on that is powerful enough to pull us forward, yet general enough to cover all types of goals, and that's...
Yes...it's that simple! Focusing on happiness in your mind is a powerful mindset to hold especially when you aren't sure of wanting anything else.
You could try some variations on this...abundance or love for example. I share with my clients that I find it absolutely essential that you focus on the physical sensation (a sense of certainty, a warmth, an actual sensation of love) not only
on repeating the words "happiness", "love", or "abundance".
It's also helpful to focus on past events, people, or animals in your life that have shared the feelings and sensations of love, happiness, and abundance. By creating these - even for 10 minutes a day - you'll be able to focus your mindset on creating more of it.
Once you find your next goal, or next path, your next milestone...or once it finds you...whatever it is will either come with a higher level of happiness OR you'll have greater happiness and peace in dealing with it. Either way it's a win/win/win.
