Continuing with Principle #8 from Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles” entitled “Clunk it Down”, I set my intention to ponder the idea of admitting when I don’t know what to do of which Canfield states: “Remember that it is okay not knowing how to do something. It’s okay to ask for guidance and advice from those who do know. Sometimes you can get it free, and sometimes you have to pay for it. Get used to asking, ‘Can you tell me how to go about…?’”
I once read (or heard) where being in a place of “I don’t know” is an excellent place to be because it means that all avenues are open to you (me, us). It puts us in a state of allowing for a full range of answers and perspectives to come to us that would never occur to us to explore had we “been in the know”, which tends to limit our perspective.
For instance when I do these MotDs, most often I don’t know ahead of time how I’m going to color them or even what medium. I seek guidance from my Team (guides, angels, the energy of the mandala, etc) who consistently give me great guidance on how best to proceed. They don’t disappoint…they even let me put in my 2cents worth of suggestions. 😁
So how about you? Do you seek help when you don’t know how to do something? How does it make you feel when you don’t know? Are you okay asking for help?

with not knowing
is crucial for answers
to come to you.”
