Have you ever noticed what happens when you finally “decide” to move forward with your decision? It’s like there is a sudden rush of energy that carries you forward, a new-found freedom, a feeling of liberation! I find it fascinating when this happen because, as humans, we are constantly faced with the need to make decisions. Unfortunately, we often get stuck in our indecisions which can have a negative impact on all areas of our lives.
I would encourage you to take a moment and do an inventory of items that need to be addressed in these life arenas: Finances, Health and Wellness, Relationships, Career and Work, Social and Leisure, Personal Development and Spirituality. Is it the need to start putting money away for your retirement, is it the need to start taking better care of yourself, do you need to mend a broken relationship with someone or is it the time to apply for that new position at work?
Regardless of which area of your life needs attention, deciding to address this issue will have a profound impact on you. The act of making that decision will help you reclaim your power which was lost to you. The Universe sees that and suddenly things start to go your way. The right people will show up in your life to help you along, that promotion you were looking for will happen, etc., etc., etc.
Learn to pay attention to your feelings and take notice when you are on the fence about something. Unlock your personal power by standing firm and making your decisions.
