Don’t over think it!
Have you ever felt totally overwhelmed by a decision?
Perhaps you signed yourself up for something and once the day came closer and closer it seemed more and more intimidating?
That happened to me yesterday
I committed myself to taking care of my 1 year old nephew for an entire day 8am – 430pm
I’ve never spent more than 2 hours with him
And never on my own
I’ve changed one nappy in my life – and that was only a wet one, not a smelly one!
It seemed like a good idea when I volunteered myself for this!
Then I realised I would be in charge of a tiny human for a whole day – OMG
The reality though, was absolutely fine
He was an absolute angel and we had a lovely day
(and I got my first smelly nappy done and dusted!)
We can totally work things up in our heads right
We are incredibly good at this
And it can be incredibly powerful
And often incredibly prohibitive!
I often speak to ladies who are desperate to change their situation
They feel out of shape, they are frustrated and fed up
And they commit to making a change
And then it’s like the commitment totally freaks them out
They get lost inside their own heads
And they start to anticipate how HARD it’s going to be
How much work it’s going to be…
They are thinking too far ahead and getting lost and confused in the future
All I need you to do
And all you need to do right now …
Is think about the ONE THING that you could change today
You don’t need to fret about changing everything all at once – I’ll bet some of your habits are pretty good anyhow!
You don’t need to fret period
(although I understand that’s kinda like telling popeye not to eat spinach!)
As long as we have brains, we will fret, anticipate and worry
This is only a problem if the fretting paralyses you
If it stops you from following through
If it stops you from taking action
This is why I encourage you to take up a free strategy call from me
What do you have to lose
I can help you plot your first step
We’re not going to plan out the rest of your life
Just that first step to get the ball rolling
To topple that first domino
And you’ll find that once you start, it’s easier and easier to keep going!
