Reflections on Adinkra “Seek Clarity”
SEEK UNDERSTANDING AND CLARITY IN EVERYTHING YOU DO. WHEN FACED WITH CONFUSION, PAUSE, DON’T REACT, OBSERVE THEN CALMLY RESPOND. DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE CONFUSION, RISE ABOVE IT. BE AGILE.
When faced with people or situations that are confusing. Say little or nothing. Let the dust settle. Only speak when you have clarity.
You will face situations that may appear confusing and you may end up confused. Sometimes confusion is brought to you and sometimes you may create it yourself. Sometimes you end up lost not knowing what to do, not understanding why the situation has become confusing or what made it confusing. It could be at home, in a project, at work or in business. It can happen anywhere at any point in time. One minute everything looks good, things are moving as you desire and boom next moment you find yourself struggling to understand what just changed. Your experience and perception of a person or a situation has changed. Sometimes you might even think you did something wrong but it could be that the confusion is not coming from you. In fact, some people operate in confusion, some intentionally create confusion and others use it to hide deep emotional and psychological problems. So what do you do? How do you handle confusion? First of all your end goal is always clarity but clarity comes from understanding and understanding comes from deep reflection on what you are going through and what outcomes you want. When faced with confusion, do the pause. Don’t react, just observe and process what you see or experience. Say as little as possible. Through your reflection exercise make sure you tell yourself that you want a positive outcome. Focus on a win/win mindset. There is no win/lose. Don’t participate or contribute to the confusion, rise above it. Remember, consistency is the evidence of knowing. Keep smiling at the person in the mirror.
Seek understanding and clarity in all situations. Never leave anything to assumptions or else you will attract more confusion.
You don’t need a reason to be happy just a choice. It’s a beautiful world enjoy it. Dream. Explore. Discover. Happy Days 😇.
