You get an idea, you have something you want to do or you become aware of a change you want to make. The first thing you feel is excitement…and then suddenly, the fear hits.
Your mind starts racing with all the bad things that could happen if you move forward with your idea. Some of these concerns might sound legitimate, which just adds to the confusion.
How can you tell if you’re making a decision out of fear or out of wisdom? How can you connect to your soul to know if something is right for you or not?
In this episode, I’m giving you a quick and easy five-step process to overcome fear in decision-making. Using this process, you will learn how to identify the specific fears you have, how to figure out which of them are true (and which are just stories) and how to get out of your head and intuitively make a decision from your heart.
Listen to discover:
- Why fear comes up when we are trying to make a decision
- How fear keeps us from making good decisions
- A five-step process to identify and overcome fear in decision-making
- How to make decisions from a heart-centered place instead of a fear-centered one
Here’s the thing: it’s normal to feel fear when making a big decision, and at the same time, fear isn’t always a sign that we shouldn’t move forward.
When we learn to unwind our stories and get into our bodies, we can tell the difference between empty fear and intuitive guidance and learn to make the decisions that are truly best for us.
