Get Clarity Now!

I sipped on vanilla macadamia nut coffee while flipping through my calendar to see what was on the agenda for the coming week. I had a live training, 3 interviews, 2 clients, and my group coaching program penciled in. Seeing this made me smile, and I thought to myself, Wow, hindsight is 20/20!

You see, there was a time when I heard a string of “I’m sorry’s” and “No’s” to being interviewed on people’s online events because I did not have the email list size. There was also a time when I had zero clients, and having a group coaching program … well, that was just a fantasy in my head.

When my first coach told me there’d soon come a day when I’d be filling my calendar, a big part of me did not believe her. I just could not see it, and so I made things difficult. I spent a lot of time in confusion, fear, and doubt. Truthfully, keeping myself in learning mode felt a lot safer.

Then one of my mentor’s asked the question: “What if you could have hindsight ahead of your experience?” These words weighed heavy on my mind that early Saturday morning. I thought: If hindsight is always 20/20, then why don’t we allow ourselves to see clearly right now?

Why spend weeks or months saying:

💭 I don’t know who my niche is or how I help people.
💭 I have to set up a blog, but I’m not sure how to go about it.
💭 I want to hire someone to help me with tech, but I’m not making money in my business yet.

What if, instead, you told yourself: “I know the day is coming, as it always does, when I’ll look back on this experience and say to myself, Wow, hindsight really is 20/20” and in the end it all worked out!

So why not show up more confidently now? Why not take a deep breath and move through the fear now? Why not do better in this. very. moment?

In hindsight, I wouldn’t have settled into a career and stayed for 14 years if I knew I’d be thriving in a business that I love. I also wouldn’t have left Los Angeles after only a year of pursuing my lifelong dream of acting if I knew I’d gain my independence later on. And I wouldn’t have stayed in toxic relationships if I knew I could be happy, whole, and complete on my own. And maybe if I jumped ahead to hindsight now, and imagined a future where I was married with kids, I’d tell my 40-year old self to let go a whole lot sooner.

So why do we say hindsight is 20/20? Is it that if we knew then what we know now, we wouldn’t have worried, doubted, and stood in fear for so long? Well, what if we opened up to seeing clearly now? What if we let our foresight be 20/20, too … even if it’s just pretend? Maybe if we let go of seeing life through the lens of our past, our view would sharpen and expand, and opportunities, answers, and support would appear right before our eyes.

What if you questioned everything you thought was true? What if you let life be easy? What if you chose to be amazed? Start by giving yourself permission to see your life and business in a new way.
