SHUT THE HELL UP!!!!!!
That is how my mind sounds some time. It feels like Ping Pong. I hate it; it wears me down.
We all make decisions every day. Some are easy, and some are hard. The easy ones are like what shirt you are wearing today, and the hard ones are like: should I stay in my marriage, should I sell my business or how can I find a job. These are not so easy. They can consume us. They can destroy our health, our finances and our future. That makes it seem even scarier, but most of the feelings we experience when making hard decisions come from our past. Let me explain.
Our subconscious mind controls most of our thought processes when we make decisions. We would love to think we are in control of our decision-making, but we are not.
So how do we get out of this way of thinking?
Glad you asked.
Most of us usually narrow down to two alternatives when making decisions. It is almost automatic in the way we think. Instead allow yourself the choice to come up with more than two alternatives. Explore decisions with a much more open mind. Dare to be creative. Then write down all of the possible consequences for each of the alternatives. This will help you understand the risk. You see it is fear of the unknown that scares us most, so we don’t even question our thoughts.
Do things differently!
This quote from Tony Robbins sums it up best, “The only thing that’s keeping you from getting what you want is the story you keep telling yourself.”
