What to do when you don't know the answer
Do you also try to have all the answers?
Avoid saying "I don't know " at all costs?
Go above and beyond in preparation so you never have to face the embarrassment of not knowing?
This comes up in a lot of my coaching sessions:
What if somebody asks a question and I don't know the answer?
Well, let me ask YOU:
what happens then?
Do you always have to know all the answers?
Are you allowed to not know?
How comfortable are you with not knowing?
What would it mean to simply say: I don't know?
I know we are all somehow traumatized from our schooldays where answering "I don't know" to a teacher's question would have paralleled death.😵
So what now that you are an adult?
Are you allowed to not know some things?
Maybe take a moment to sit with this awareness of not knowing.
Of it being OK that you don't know.
See whether it makes you feel lighter in a way. And see whether it can eliminate stress the next time you show up in front of your audience. ❤️
I hope this reflection was useful.
With so much love, light, and energy ✨
