How To Find What You Need To Become A Phenomenal Success
Imagine it is time to leave your house and you can’t seem to find your house keys. You check the kitchen counter, you check the dining table, your purse, under your bed, on your bedside table, you check everywhere you think they could be, but they are still nowhere to be found. The place you find them will probably be the last place you check because it is where you least wanted to look, or even expected to find them.
A legend is told of King Arthur and his knights. They all live in a magnificent castle deep in the forest. In the olden stories, a knight is the embodiment of everything that is brave and fearless. King Arthur has his knights seated at a round table — which signifies that they are all equals to each other. He sent them off to find the most valuable object in the forest. They all do not know what it is, or where it is, but they know that it exists. The legend goes that all the knights took off to the forest and each knight decided to start looking for the valuable object at the point of the forest that looked darkest to him.
The idea behind this is there are things that come easy to you. They are things that you are fond of, and you are happy to pursue them and master them. However, there is a place you do not want to go. You feel that you might need to go there but you do not want to go because it is unfamiliar territory. You have not explored or mastered this territory so it feels like that is a monster you will not be able to overcome. If what you are doing is not working, it is where you have not gone that you need to go. Those are the things you should consider exploring further.

My experience in the mental health space has taught me that most everyone who deals with mild mental health issues already has the answers within them. They usually go on to pay to see a therapist or counselor, and later come back to tell me that they realized they already knew what the problem was and how to solve it, but they were afraid. The safe space with the mental health professional helped them let their fears come out so they could openly deal with them.
No matter what you are afraid of, or how afraid you are, you need to find the courage to pull yourself together and go deep in the recesses of that dark place. Only you can bring the light to it. Find the monster and deal with it. You must confront your reality in order to contemplate what it has to offer to you. It might be dangerous and push you to the limit but that is what you need for your growth and personal development. What you need to find is to be found where you least want to find it.
“That which you most need will be found where you least want to look” — Carl Jung, the father of analytical psychology.
