Stop Analyzing & Start Doing
"Sometimes you have to stop thinking so much and just go where you heart takes you."
Sitting down to get some work done tonight and I started wondering...
How many of us WANT something, but get held back because we just CAN'T STOP ANALYZING?
Can't stop asking - "Well, what about this? Or this?"
Analysis paralysis to the max.
If there's one thing I'm good at in the whole world, it's this.
But when that shit holds you in the same place your whole life, that's when it becomes a problem.
A year ago, I was doing just that. I had already been coaching for a year, and yet I still sat there weighing the pros and cons of coaching, the worst case scenario, wondering if I should continue doing it.
I had a "real job." A "real plan" for my life that had nothing to do with this selfie-posting nonsense.
I was literally chasing my tail trying to figure out if I should continue to do this.
I loved it! But it wasn't a "real job" with a "real future"...or so I thought!
Until I realized one thing...
The WORST thing that could happen from being a coach was: I get a kickass workout in, get WAY healthier, meet awesome people, grow more confident, find women that get it that I can share my stories and my struggles with, and maybe even make a little money while I was at it.
That was literally the WORST thing that could happen.
The BEST thing that could happen? That this could be my passion.
That I could be turned on to a career that I effing love.
That it could change my life.
I had a shuttle driver once from the Ford dealer, this old man, who shared his wisdom the whole ride. But there was one thing I would never forget....
"Do what you love." He said.
"If there's one thing you will regret in life, it's not doing what you love."
And it stuck with me.
Because for me, what prevented me from not doing what I love was that analysis. That over-questioning.
That NEVER-ENDING WHAT IF!!!!
But bottom line, I don't want to have regrets.
I don't want to look back on my life in 30-40 years and say "I wish I did that."
Weigh the pros and cons, yes.
But don't let uncertainty keep you from trying.
Seriously if that's not a #notetoself in my life, I don't know what is!!
No regrets. 😘St
