Don’t Let Confusion Stall Your Progress

I’ll admit it. I’ve been guilty more times than I can count to stall out because of confusion about how to do something, feeling like it’s something I should already know and embarrassed to ask how to do it.

The problem lies in allowing that to happen over and over and over again.

We are all human. We can’t possibly know everything about everything. If you’re worried about your peers, clients or customers seeing you ask for help on something you might think is so easy but just can’t figure it out. Don’t. They will most likely be able to relate and see that you are stepping up to find answers to move forward in your business.

Kelly McCausey from Love People Make Money makes some great points in her post: Refuse to Stay Confused. A particular part that jumped out at me is:

“Being confused comes with a built in excuse for inaction.  People say things like, ‘I would have finished that project, but I was confused about how to set it up – or which tool to use – or who to ask for help.’ “

Ready, now take action!

Oh my word, Samantha! I’m so glad I’m not alone in this! I’ve been struggling with this problem forever! Thing is, sometimes it really has a crippling effect on a person’s life. All depending on what and how big the issue is. My confusion brought my (newly launched) company to a complete standstill. The short of it is, I was caught up in a partnership and started a business that could’ve been brilliant, she split after we launched (being pregnant at the time) and out of generosity, gave me the whole business (minus the actual registration of the company). Only, this wasn’t the type of business I would ever have started on my own, which left me in total confusion. I had to rewrite the very core of the business to suite my skills and I was left in a state of limbo. I’m only starting to figure things out now, but it really helps to know that it’s normal to feel this way when confronted with confusion. Thanks for sharing.

    Partnerships are a wonderful thing if all are fully invested. It’s good, albeit not convenient, that you found out early it wasn’t going to work out. Now that you have rewritten your core business to suite your skills you have every opportunity to make it great! I’m so glad you’re persevering and good luck. 🙂
