One of the biggest wastes of time is indecision. Both indecision before you’re made a decision and indecision after. Indecision and staying in “I don’t know” seems innocent, but it keeps you from achieving your goals and experiencing the reality of being someone who sets their mind to a goal, and achieves it.
ALL OF THE DECISIONS YOU’VE MADE IN YOUR LIFE HAVE LITERALLY CREATED THE LIFE YOU ARE LIVING TODAY.
Making decisions is how you cultivate your own power, and how to generate more power from within yourself.
You’ll need to make decisions about your goal, and have your own back with whatever decision you make. Whether that’s a decision to decline client work for three months or quit social media completely (or take a one year hiatus) or to take time off from your career as a new mom etc.
Your brain will rally against growth in an attempt to protect you. Your work is to stay strong in your desired result, feel all the feelings that come up, do whatever it takes to achieve your goal (aka take whatever actions you need to take), and have your own back with whatever crops up in your path.
Making a decision for real means committing to achieving a result. And removing all other possibility. The hardest step in achieving anything is making a true commitment. The stronger your commitment to your decision, the more energy and motivation you will have to follow through.
If you decide ahead of time and visualize your decision — create those neural pathways — your brain won’t have to make a decision in the moment. You’ll know exactly what to do.
The more you make your decisions ahead of time, the less reactive you’ll be in the moment. When you honor your own decisions, you get better and better at it. You practice it. The best part is that when you do it in one area of your life, you’ll get better at it in all areas of your life.
