In my last blog post, I wrote about trusting your intuition in order to make decisions and move forward. When we over-analyze things and ignore our gut, we tend to stay stuck in a rut.
It’s important to trust yourself and make the jump.
And when you do, it’s such a satisfying relief. Just moving beyond the choice feels good. Once the decision is made, there is certainty. A sense of assuredness. A new focus.
Here are some examples of what I’m talking about:
Jerry wasn’t happy at his job, and dreamed about going back to school. But the process of applying seemed daunting. Instead of moving forward, he kept on dreaming.
Amelia decided to get into shape and started training. She thought that running a marathon would be the ultimate fitness goal, but was nervous about whether she could do it. When the deadline came to sign up for the marathon, she kept thinking of reasons why she couldn’t do it… so she didn’t.
Imagine if in both these scenarios, these folks had just made the jump and moved forward. Jerry would be on his way to realizing his grad school dream, and Amelia would prove to herself that she could finish a marathon.
By hemming and hawing and putting off their decisions, they are only letting themselves down.
For me? I put off the idea of getting an office space outside of my home for a long time. Deep down, I knew it was the right move, but it took me a while to act. Now, in my new office, it feels like everything has come together, and I’m so happy.
So why not try it? What decision do you need to make that you’ve been putting off? Reply in the comments and let me know.
Then see how good it feels to move forward!
