When we hesitate, we don’t feel so good.
We doubt ourselves, we question the outcomes, we fear the ‘what if?’ and then a whole host of other emotions show up to the party. All of a sudden, we don’t feel like we are on solid ground any more. It seems as though hesitation can kill off part of our life force, leaving us in a place of indecision.
Is it time to get conscious of what area of your life you are the most hesitant in? What is the mind telling you as a well-crafted story? Could your finances be just one area you’re not taking charge of?
“I can’t invest until…?”
“I won’t get on top of my finances until…?”
“The markets are really unsettled, I’ll just wait until…?”
“When I get that new job, then I’ll…”
“When I score the promotion, I’ll…”
Notice how the mind is doing its thing again to try and keep you safe, when you really know deep down, you should take a different direction.
Today, stop hesitating about that one thing and decide to move ahead. Be bold and fearless!
If it’s your finances you’re hesitant over – can you pay more off the credit card? Start that offset account against the mortgage? Make that investment you’ve always wanted to? Get your head around the share market? Look for that investment property you’ve been talking about for years? Seek professional help to get you where you’d like to go?
As I learned from my favourite line in Robin Williams’ movie Dead Poets Society “Carpe Diem” or “Seize the Day.”
I would love to hear what you’ve chosen to stop hesitating about and how it’s turned out for you!
