If you’re currently struggling with making a decision this episode is for YOU! Oftentimes the underlying reason why we can’t make a decision is because we fear WHO we will have to become and WHAT we will need to do in order to make this dream a reality; and what most of us end up doing is we delay our lives because of this fear.
Listen as I explain and dig deeper into why decision making is so hard and what we can do about it so that we can start living the life we KNOW DEEP DOWN we truly want to live.
Some key questions you can start asking yourself to help you come closer to decision making include:
What are you so scared of on the other side of this decision?
What will force you to do?
Who will it force you to become?
How will it force you to feel?
We’ll also talk about what it means to take Emotional Responsibility for our lives and why taking Emotional Responsibility can unlock true confidence in every area of our lives.
