Have you ever been crippled by “paralysis analysis”?
I’m talking about those times when you want to take action to move closer towards your goals, but you can’t decide which action is the right one…
Almost like you’re at a crossroads, and you can’t decide whether to go right or left.
If you’ve ever fallen into paralysis analysis (or perhaps you’re in it right now!), chances are you’re not taking action because of one sneaky little monster..
You see, when you’re afraid of what may happen if you make the “wrong” decision, you can sometimes get stuck in overanalyzing things – which can stop you from making any decision at all.
To free yourself from paralysis analysis, here’s something to keep in mind:
Don’t be afraid of taking the wrong action!
Instead, stay focused on simply taking action period.
If you take an action, only to find out later that it ended up taking you further away from your goals, all this means is that you have crossed one method that WON’T work, off of your list…
And this quite often creates a new opening for the RIGHT action to manifest, so that you can step into it. As my good friend Michael Bernoff often says:
“Failure” proves that you are making progress.
(Don’t you just LOVE that?!)
So again, anytime you feel stuck with indecision around taking action, just get into action!
Aim to create any momentum you can, and if it turns out to be the wrong action, you can course correct as you go along 🙂
To your success,
However, I have an imperfect solution that will get us pointed in the right direction: Do the next small thing, the right way, right away.
In other words, find some small right thing to do that negates the negativity. Do that right thing, right away, to prove to yourself what’s being said isn’t ALL true.
There might be some small tangles of truth in the hurtful thing being said. We can pray about that and do something later when the hurt isn’t so fresh.
But first things first. We have to stop the bleeding from the deepest wound.
Do the next small thing, the right way, right away.
