14 Jul Making decisions
Making decision leads to change, a scary prospect that our brain and inner critic will try to avoid by sending us fear-based “what ifs” messages that are holding us back and maintain status-quo.
But not making a decision is making a decision and letting circumstances and others decide for us.
Clarity over the issue we are trying to address will give us more options. Saying yes or no intentionally, will bring our power back, as well as remembering that the ‘right’ decision might not feel easy but will make us grow.
