🧜🏽♂️ Escape the Funk
Ever feel like you're waiting for something to happen in life?
Like you're stuck, in a funk, or regularly trying to figure things out?
This feeling is a red flag that means one thing:
You have a decision to make.
Indecision is a silent thief.
It's like you're stuck in quicksand.
The longer you wait, the deeper you sink.
It robs you of progress, leaving you standing still.
Every moment you don't make a choice, you're choosing to stay stuck.
It’s at moments like this that we have to remind ourselves that we are the director in this movie called our life.
Still, it’s important to understand that decisions don't always mean turning your life upside down.
They're about making smart, well-thought-out choices.
Not just jumping into something massive like quitting your job, filing for divorce, or “investing” in a time share without thinking it through.
Big changes start with small decisions.
It's these small, consistent daily decisions that create a compounding effect.
This leads to the outcomes you desire.
Small decisions, like choosing a healthy meal, scheduling a weekend getaway, or getting in an early morning 20 minute workout, shifts gears from neutral to moving forward.
Making choices feels good.
Every decision you make builds your confidence.
You'll start to feel like you're in the driver's seat, not just a passenger in your own life.
Your decisions don't just affect you.
They ripple through your personal and professional life.
How you show up makes a statement.
Being someone who makes decisions can change your life and inspire others.
Take that first step.
Make one small decision that moves you forward.
Sign up for that boxing class, schedule 15 minutes to brainstorm that new idea, or do that weekly meeting with your wife you’ve avoided for far too long.
Your journey out of the "in-between" starts with one decision.
