Last week I met with several clients who are experiencing ‘the wobblies.’ You know what I mean, when we are just not 100% sure about basically everything in our lives! Where we are, where we are going, how we really feel, what we really want, or even what we stand for and believe. We believe everyone else has it all figured out – and we are just drifting. Let’s face it, if we are really honest with ourselves, we have all been there. Being among seemingly confident and certain individuals can often make us feel even more wobbly and insecure.
What I want to offer is a different perspective on these wobbly moments. I actually find it refreshing to see a person be secure enough to admit they don’t have all the answers, to embrace ambiguity, and to be curious in the moment. These individuals are open to new possibilities and alternative approaches. These individuals are creative thinkers, not always following a charted course; yet carving out their own paths. These are the innovators, the contrarians, and the problem solvers in many ways. So, the next time you find yourself in a wobbly moment – lean into it. Who knows where it may lead.
