I have been in business for myself for almost a decade now. There have been soooo many learning curves along the way. To be honest, I didn’t know how to do ANYTHING when it came to starting or running a business.
What I knew – was that I was good at “taking care of people” and “being organized”.
What I didn’t know was pretty much anything else.
I didn’t know how to set up my business. I didn’t know if I needed to be an LLC or S Corp. (or all the other options)
I didn’t know what services I wanted to offer.
I didn’t know if I wanted to add pet services into my business model.
I didn’t know who (or even what) an “ideal client” was.
I didn’t know how to price my services.
I didn’t know if I should market this way or that.
I didn’t know if I should put that ad in the local paper (don’t do that).
I didn’t know if I should learn Facebook or Twitter (Twitter was a big deal back then)
I didn’t know HOW to do any of it …
You may feel the same way!
But I have a secret to tell you…
… the BIGGEST thing that will get in your way is DECISION DELAY …
Have you ever heard of decision fatigue?? It’s a real thing!
It’s the “fear” of making a decision. Because you’re afraid it won’t work – or you’re afraid it will be the “wrong” decision.
I have many clients who come to me and get “stuck” in decision delays … it’s when they become FROZEN in “indecision” …
And it’s THE thing that keeps them back…
They will come to me about pricing – or wanting to try a new networking group – or they want to STOP offering a service – or they want to ADD a new service …
And even when I share with them the options – they STILL get STUCK …
Here’s the secret they’re starting to get though – there are NO RIGHT or WRONG Answers – they are just next steps…
Whatever step you take, make the decision to do it – go ALL in! And then as you see the results of that decision, you’ll know the NEXT step …
What happens is that most people won’t make a decision and when you make NO decision – you are sitting in the muck – not moving forward …
Then as we hold off making a decision – the “weight” of that decision seems to get heavier and heavier… It’s as if your decision backpack day after day has another brick added to it …
I know you know EXACTLY what I mean!!
When’s the last time you made a BIG decision??
Did you make it swiftly or did you sit on it for days and days or even months out of fear that you might make the wrong decision …
Here’s what I want you to know …
You can choose anything you want with the power of deciding!
BUT – be sure you like the reasons for your decisions!
Never make a decision to say yes or no to something out of fear.
Never make a decision to do or not do something out of anger.
When we make decisions out of fear or anger … we create results that will give us BACK more fear, anxiety, insecurity, guilt, unworthiness, desperation, despair, powerlessness.
When you DECIDE to say YES or NO to something – be sure you like your reasons – that’s the greatest thing I can teach you about decision making …
When making a decision, always do so with a clean heart first XO
No matter what decisions you are faced with this week:
Don’t waste time in indecision
Clean up your thoughts first
Decide from a place of joy and abundance
Know that no matter what the result – your next step will be revealed
You can completely change your life by changing the daily decisions you make that affect how you live and show up in the world ?
