I loved listening to the question from one person about how to know if you are spending too much time ‘considering your options’ and when that is a cover for just fear. I am in a similar place. I suspect given I think I may be using it as an excuse to stay stuck in the fear that you say won’t go away without action??
I think you just answered your question : )
This is something everyone struggles with. We all think our doubt is unique, it isn’t.
Doubt is part of the deal, if your goals are big enough you are going to experience it. we think that it shouldn’t be part of the deal, I don’t know where we got that idea from, read any book by anyone who has done anything for the first time and they experienced doubt, fear, worry. It comes with the package.
We have a choice.
1. Decide to take action despite doubt and fear
2. Decide to allow doubt and fear to drive our decisions and live a life that does not honour what we know inside is right
One has the side dish of fear, the other regret. It sounds dramatic, but it is reality.
WE tend to say ‘I dont know’ or ‘I am not sure’ to stay in indecision and avoid this truth.
You can take action despite fear. You just have to decide, commit and get out of the cave. No one else can do this for you.
Doubt sounds like a good excuse to not take action. It isn’t. The only way to prove or disprove it is not to take action.
Right now tou are focused on what will be lost or the cost if you fail.
But what is the lost opportunity, the lost part of you if you don’t take action? That is a very important question to ask yourself.
Right now I suggest you write out what you need to know to make a decision and schedule a time and date by which you will have made a decision, then schedule time to get the information you need and then….make that decision and start moving forward.
