“Get Off My Bus” Tip #3

Filed under: Making Decisions,Motivation,Stress Management,Take Control — Robin Sacks...Speaker, Author, Performance Coach @ 2:21 pm

Welcome to March 3rd! So…how did you do switching off of “auto-pilot?” Remember that these small adjustments have a HUGE impact on your well being. They also show you that little shifts are not as scary as you have made them out to be in your head. In fact, they are often not scary at all!

Today’s tip…DO THIS TODAY:

Stop Getting Your Directions From the Scarecrow!

Picture the scarecrow character from the Wizard of Oz. Do you remember when Dorothy asked him how to get to the Emerald City, he pointed and said, “it’s that way.” A moment later, he pointed in the opposite direction and said, “or you can go that way.” Big help, huh? Ironically, how many times in our lives do we feel like we are getting directions from the scarecrow? And what happens? We have too many options, we cannot make a decision, and so we choose to do…nothing. Then, we look back and have regrets about not accomplishing things we wished we had.

When you simplify decision making, you give yourself the opportunity to create a torrent of prosperity in your life. How do you do this? Simple…stop asking everyone’s opinion of things. Begin to trust yourself. I am not talking about “big” decisions. I am talking about the little decisions we make dozens of times a day that we feel compelled to ask other people what they think before we do anything. Think you don’t do that? Go through one day conscious of it…and count!

People are anxious to stop you if you have not started, but they will hesitate to get in your way if you are already in motion. Make a decision on your own today…then tell someone (not ask them) that you are doing it. The response you get will be markedly different from the one you may be used to getting. Enjoy the feeling it brings!

Until tomorrow…
