How to Make a Decision – 5 Effortless Strategies

Making a decision can be a pain in rear. Especially a big one.

When my client asked me for insight on how to make a decision, I decided to turn it into a blog post. Because my effortless tips are AWESOME SAUCE.

Let’s get to it.

How to Make a Decision

1. Act Like You are Advising a Friend or Loved One.

If they came to with the same dilemma, what advice would you give them? What would you recommend? This question is super powerful because it access your creativity and genius zone. It uses your own intuition – which is where the answer lies.

2. Are You Making Your Decision From Fear?

Our mind loves routine AND it loves to protect us. So the “safe” route is what the mid will prefer. Ensure the decision isn’t made JUST because it is the safer choice. Why? Because that is a decision made from a place of fear. And that can easily lead into regret later.

Don’t be the #shouldawouldacoulda person!

3. Is There Another Solution?

Look at the cons of all the options. Then see if there is a way to reduce the cons. Is there a new solution which can be a hybrid of the different options? Instead of just a “Yes” or “No” option, is there another solution which can work?

Ex: Should I invest a coach? 

Initial Options: 1. Yes, do it!      2. No! I can’t afford it.

Alternatives: 3. Maybe – let me looking into coaches & see if there is one that really inspires me. If and when I find that person, I can then re-evaluate my decision.

4. Project Yourself into the Future.

One year from now, when you are looking back on your decision, how does it feel? Try on all the options in your mind. Which feels better? Which one fuels your purpose/soul? Which fuels your goals? Which choice makes you proud & give your butterflies?

5. What Would Your BEST Self Do?

Do you have a mentor or role model? Take a few minutes and jot down what qualities about them inspire you. If they had to make the same decision what option would they choose?  Does that option resonate with you? This will get you closer to the mindset of the “ideal” you. What would she/he do?

TIPS:

– Ensure you are not stressed/anxious when you are asking yourself these questions

– Get a pen & paper! Writing is a powerful tool. Set a timer & get to it!

– Know YOU have the right answer. And these questions will guide you to it. Check out this research by PsychCentral.

– If nothing comes to you immediately, take a break and come back to it later.

Making decisions can be tricky. But now you are armed with thought provoking questions to make the best decision for you!

Sending you Love, Light & Oodles of Positive Vibes

This quote above is by Mel Abraham. I read it in the Entrepreneur’s Solution. It is really a great, great read. He has great systems and his stories are inspiring. Get it here for less than $8!

I must say, I’ve danced with fear more times than I care to admit. But, here comes the silver lining every time that nasty fear creeps up, it gets easier and quicker to overcome and move forward. So, with that, I am excited to share with you my personal tips I use to conquer fear.

Here are 3 Tips to Overcome Fear Now!

1. Start with the Mind.

Our mindset is the foundation to everything. Fear can magnify reality, so go to the opposite extreme. If you are nervous about public speaking or for your upcoming interview (which is ridiculously common) take a deep breath and visualize the outcome you want.

This is a game changer. You are now focused on the positive result rather than the fear! Holla!

2. Take Action.

When we take action, we stop the feelings of fear. Whether it is creating a strategic plan or making that video you have been procrastinating on, just do it baby! We cannot allow the fear to take over and paralyze us in moving towards our goal. Create a plan, take small steps and celebrate each achievement! The first step is the hardest. It’s like stepping into a pool. Yeah, the water is cold. We know it. We dread taking that first step, but when we do, we quickly get used to it. Then it is easier to take the next step and the one after that. Life is the same way doll!

Kick fear where the sun don’t shine and replace it with feelings of accomplishment. Boom!

3. Reflect daily.

This is amaze sauce! Yes, I made up “amaze sauce”, you will come to understand, and perhaps. one day love my “Indranisms”.

I practice Gratitude every night. It puts me into the perfect positive vibrations and I can connect with the highest part of me. I created a custom Daily Gratitude Log because I could not find one in the marketplace that inspired me.

I share my Daily Gratitude Log with you. Try it out. You will feel the difference of your mood the first time you use it. It’s rad.

There you have it! You are armed with Three Tips to Overcome Fear Now. Start today. Take action. You will feel amaze balls.

You know what? You have it all within you. Trust yourself and let it come out!

When I started to look inward, I found myself. I found my purpose. As a result I left Corporate America to be a transformational coach. I’ve never looked back. Boo-yah!

I love having it straight forward and pretty to look at. The Log focuses on your actions, people that impacted you, future actions for tomorrow and daily affirmations. When I don’t do it, I can tell the difference in my sleep. Yes, it is that big.
