My Soul is my Gap Filler

Starting a business, very much like starting a job search, can be scary and daunting.
 
Fear feels like it has moved in and taken residence at my work desk. 
 
Sometimes, I feel like I don’t have what I need to get to the next step.
 
I don’t know the right people.
 
I have not taken the right classes.
 
My approach is wrong.
  

I DON’T KNOW WHAT I DON’T KNOW

 

I am rewriting my website to include different options to help people live their Soul’s Mission and find myself feeling overwhelmed and afraid.
 
I have tons of ideas, tools, support options.
 
I just can’t figure out how to organize all these thoughts into a cohesive plan that is simple and makes sense.
 
This is similar to a job search when you find yourself thinking:  Should I... 

  • Spend time on LinkedIn?
  • Send my resume to open jobs on the job boards…again?
  • Go to a networking event?
  • Rework my resume that does not seem to be performing the way I had hoped?
  • Maybe reading a book on how to be a better interviewer is the next best step?
  • Forget the whole thing and apply to Starbucks?
So many options with no clear direction.
 

THE STRATEGY THAT WORKS EVERY TIME

 
For all those times when fear steps in and I just don’t know exactly what to do next, I remember that I have a partner on this path: my Soul.
 
And my Soul is my gap filler.
 
The books, people, situations, classes, skills, tools, knowledge etc. that I need to close the gap will become available.
 
No need to fret or worry.
 
All you need to do is let your Soul know you are turning the fear and angst over.
 
You are offering the gap to your Soul.
 
And I have a fun way to do that.
 

SAY THE DIVINE REMINDER PRAYER AND WATCH YOUR GAPS GET FILLED

 
When I feel afraid or stuck in the gap all I do is say my Divine Reminder Prayer.
 
Then, I wait for what I need, peacefully, in rest.
 
 

TRY THIS

 
Every morning for the next week say the Divine Reminder Prayer.
 
At any point during the day when you feel fear rearing its head, say the prayer again…and again…and again until you feel peace.
 
Your Soul is giddy to help. Fear is a sign that the gap is there and it is time to let your Soul work its magic and fill those gaps.
 
If your Soul is telling you that the best thing you can do to fill your gap is to hire a life/career coach then go here and let’s get started.
