The whole basis of this thinking is flawed. We never miss out.
So the question we ought to be asking is… “What would I do if I was ALL IN?” or in boxing parlance, “What would I do right now if I had both feet in the ring?”
It’s an interesting question because you are not asking yourself to commit in any particular direction. In fact, you don’t have to commit in only one direction. This question allows you to take the next step. Just the next step. You don’t have to plan the next 50 steps. Just this next step. It opens the door to movement forward from a perplexed mind.
Once you know what you would do IF you were fully committed, you can evaluate the next question… “Am I willing to take that step? Today? Right Now?”
Now you have a yes/no question that serves you. It also has the extra added bonus of calming all the fear and anxiety in your body. It is much easier to find peace, calm in your thinking, in your stomach even, when you approach the decision-making process this way.
This is part of a much bigger concept about how you want to live your life. When I ask people if they want to be enjoying their lives, they always answer “yes”. But when I ask people what is more important reaching a specific goal or enjoying your life, it gives pause. This “what would I do if I was all in” question, allows you to do both. You received the inspiration that led you to this place of decision, now it is time to stop second-guessing and get squarely behind your own inspiration. Now it is time to start relishing in the wonderful and playful path this inspiration has brought forth to you.
Think about it. Give this a try. Find the ease and joy of micro-commitment. I know you will find it useful, productive and especially calming.
Let me know how it goes & Good luck!
If you need help with this process, let’s talk.
Let’s plan out:
1. How to divide the thoughts into smaller “bite size” pieces for consideration.
2. The steps involved in order to get a clear and easy decision you can be happy about.
3. Identifying those things that could possibly hold you back from the progress you desire.
