All or nothing thinking with the concept of having all the answers internally…


I received coaching this week and it was fantastic. We ended up discussing how I have all the answers inside of me. This concept blew my mind. I have thought all my life the answers are out there, others know more than me, others have the answers. Even after earning the degrees and certifications I still feel like that. I know now that is because circumstances don’t change our feelings, only thoughts do. So here is where I am getting tripped up. I am wrestling with this idea that the answers are inside me, what others have to tell me are just their thoughts. If the answers are inside me then why couldn’t I find them? Why did I have to join scholars to learn how to think better? Do I not seek teachers out anymore and just go in internally for the answers? What is the point of teachers than if we have the answers inside of us? I have a hunch it is my mind trying to buffer and my primal brain is scavaging for evidence that I don’t have the answers like it always has. I just need a little help with this. I know the thought others have the answers, others are smarter than me, others have it figured out and I don’t, doesn’t serve me at all. I want to believe that I can find the answers within me, I always know what to do, I will figure it out which btw I do, by seeking out teachers, but the idea of relying on my brain alone to figure stuff out is a bit too abstract for me. What does this look like?
