We all have moments when we don’t know what our next step should be. It can be an overwhelming and daunting task to figure out what path to take. There are times when you don’t know what to do because you’re not sure what you want and then there are times when you know exactly what you want, but don’t know where or how to get started.
My clients come to be because they are stuck. Either they want to identify their internal barriers to success, figure out their life purpose, land a coveted promotion or after investing thousands of dollars in their business, they still don’t know how to package, pitch and promote themselves and what they do to create buzz and generate interest in them.
Here are my quick-fix suggestions:
1. Ask for assistance. God has given you an internal guidance system. The only reason you don’t know what to do next is because you’re in a whirlwind of energy that is not your own. Sit with yourself and ask:
- What will serve my highest good and that of others?
- Who can help me get there?
You’ll be amazed how you are led to what you need when you need it by simply asking.
2. Act on your promptings even if they frighten you. You’ll have a feeling of what you should do. You may think about a person with whom you haven’t spoken to in years, reach out to them. If they don’t have the answer or don’t respond, don’t give up you’ll find the right door if you keep knocking.
3. Invest in yourself. You have to believe in yourself enough to get the information you need to advance your life and career. Be diligent in your pursuit of your passion and happiness. Invest in yourself by hiring a coach that can help with the following or any other needs:
- assess what you have and how you can package, position and promote it
- identify your blind spots so that you can see what other people see that may be hindering you from getting what you want
- help you sharpen your tools for success

Wow! That is an interesting question. The reason is because it assumes that every person that is self-confident has the same qualities, I’m not sure we can make that assumption.
Coming from the belief that every person is unique and who they are and what they value constitutes their character, I would have reason to believe that there may be some consistent behaviors, but characteristics would be more diverse.
If you’re open to that thought, here are a few behaviors on my list:
1. Good decision makers. They don’t make decisions based on selfish motives. They have the ability to objectively examine a situation and make the choice that best serves their highest good and the highest good of others.
2. Global Thinkers. They see the world globally and the people within it with an understanding and responsibility to honor, respect and serve others who are different from them.
3. Passionate communicators. How we communicate speaks volumes of who we are, how we feel and what we believe about ourselves and others. When we learn to assertively speak our truth with compassion we create a better world.
