I recently listened to a speaker who coached on problems.
There are no problems.
I know. You are like there a tons of problems. I have loads of them.
You have decisions to make. Problems are where you sit and likely anguish with a decision to make. Often we sit a lot longer than needed.
When you spend time thinking you have a problem ask yourself…
“What decision am I willing to make right now?”
Or this one which I think is a very powerful question. So powerful that I want you to write it down and ask it the next time you have a problem.
“What decision am I AVOIDING making?”
Often we spin out in overwhelm when we just need to make a decision.
Am I eating off plan on vacation or not?
Do I have time to go the gym or not?
Am I going to stay mad or forgive?
Trust me. When I heard this I got so defensive because I could list my problems. So I did! I listed every problem I had.
I found a long list of decisions to make and a lot of things I was afraid to commit to.
I didn't have problems.
Try it. You might be surprised.
I can tell you this. I got super clear on things I needed to do and felt pretty amazing to have dropped a lot of BS overwhelm.
