Decisions

Decision making can be hard.

I’ve had a few clients in the past week facing some big decisions. While these two quotes may initially appear to be the antithesis of each other, take time to pause and reflect. Staying stuck in a situation because you are afraid to change it will lead to regret. Staying in a situation because you don’t know if it’s time to quit or try harder can drive you mad.

Close your eyes and picture yourself 3 years from now, or next year or even just at Christmas. Picture what life would be like.

  • What would you like to be doing?
  • Are you in the same environment?
  • How does this image feel to you? Does it make you feel relaxed and free, or nervous and tense?
  • Play out different scenarios in your head and pay attention to how your body and mind reacts. Do you sense tension or release, does your heart soar or feel trapped, can you see a slight refocusing of the image or a completely different picture?

When we feel stuck, we often know the answer deep down in our gut. Ignore everyone, deflect advice and give yourself time to connect with what YOU truly want. After all it’s YOUR life. When you feel you have chosen a path, discuss with people you trust, help them colour in the outline for you and feel supported.

I am always here to help you work through the scenarios and we can use a variety of techniques to reconnect with your gut instinct, make the right decision and live a life you truly want to lead xx
