This week’s question comes from Suzanne in Ca.
I find that lately, I’ve been faced with opportunities to spend money on things that I really do want for myself and for my career, yet I get stuck in confusion. I go back and forth with “should I or shouldn’t I.”
I suffer with not being able to make decisions easily about important things in my life. I get so excited and then I talk myself out of it. How can I become clear, make the right decisions, and feel confident that things will work out okay?
I love this question and my answer to you is likely going to differ from a lot of conventional thinking out there that supports the idea that making a quick decision is what you should do if you want to be successful. For some people, making a quick decision is best for them. However, for some, it is absolutely not. In fact, your conflict has a lot to do with you doing what is authentic and real for you versus what you think you should do.
The truth is, you are a unique human being. Your decision making process is not necessarily going to align with someone else’s process. Their success is not your authority!
There is a way for you to make important decisions and to have the peace and confidence in knowing that your decision is the best one for you. Here is what you can do to help you get off of the fence and make your important decisions, particularly when you spend money.
You mentioned that you get really excited about purchasing something and then you talk yourself out of it. In your excitement, you are experiencing two things. One, you are feeling the truth about really wanting something, and two, you are experiencing your fear from past conditioning which is telling you that you can’t have what you want because you don’t deserve it or you can’t be trusted to have what you want, etc.
It’s like riding a roller coaster. You’re excited and want to have the thrill, yet, at the same time, you’re afraid of the fall. This is great when you want a thrilling roller coaster ride, however, your life’s important decisions will work out better if you are not making them from the adrenaline rush that comes with your fear. Fear either encourages you to act quickly to prevent something bad from happening, or it causes you to sit on the fence in paralysis. From this place, you cannot decide what is best for you in the long run.
I suggest you do the following with the next important, financial decision that you feel really excited about and then you drop into self-doubt and subsequent paralysis.
- Accept what you really want, which is what your excitement is revealing to you.
- Notice your fears, doubts, and worries, which are from your past conditioning. Let the emotions pass through you, and refrain from giving up on what you really want.
- Relax, take a break, and let your emotions settle. You will arrive at a centered, calm place. This space will bring you clarity about the decision you need to make. You will know if the opportunity before you is just right for you or not. If it isn’t, you will know what is better. If it is, you will feel the YES from a place of centered-ness, not excitement!
For further information and assistance in gaining the confidence to make empowered and wise decisions, particularly when it comes to spending money on yourself or your business/career, please contact me to schedule a strategy session to discover what you can do to make wiser decisions so you can have what you want.
My best to you for all of the peace, abundance, and joy that you deserve!
In love and abundance,
“Dream it, own it, and make it REAL”
