How to get clear on your next steps in life

next steps

Do you know where you’re going in life? And what your next steps should be?

Or do you feel stuck?

Off balance?

next stepsUnable to find the clarity you need in order to move forward?

If so, trust me, I get.

As I wrote in my last blog I’ve been there many times myself.

Stuck in overwhelm.

Analysis paralysis.

Fear & self-doubt.

And lack of clarity.

So I’ve learned to be gentle with myself during those times.

No beating myself up.

No comparing myself to others.

Just more self-compassion.

And reaching out for help when I need it.

For example, recently I spoke to my good friend & life coach, Marlene.

I told her I was confused about my future.

And where I wanted my life coaching business to go.

What I wanted it to look like down the road.

Marlene asked me some great questions (as coaches do)!

Questions that helped me to get crystal clear on what I wanted to do next with my business.

Not long term.


Which helped me move through my overwhelm.

next stepsAnd let go of all the ideas bouncing around in my head.

All of the questions.

All the unnecessary tasks that were taking me off course.

And away from where I saw my business going.

Instead I could focus on just ONE thing.

My next step.

Which is the key to getting unstuck and moving forward.

Taking ONE baby step.

One micro-step that you know you both can AND want to do.

A small step that helps inspire you to take action.

And helps build momentum.

Because when you’re feeling lost, clarity rarely comes from sitting and stewing about it.

Instead, clarity comes from taking action.

The more you take those small, do-able steps forward — even if you have no idea where they’ll lead you — the better you’ll feel.

And the clearer you’ll become.

About what works for you.

And what doesn’t.

About the kind of future you imagine for yourself.

And the direction you want to go in life.

So if you’re feeling overwhelmed or lost right now, let me ask you what Marlene asked me…

What’s one small ‘do-able’ step you can take this week to move you forward?

next stepsToward your dream or vision.

And then go do that.

Because once you do, the next step will appear.

And then the next.

And the next.

‘Cuz remember…

It’s all about the baby steps.

Each one taken moves you closer to where you want to go in life.

Step, by baby step.
