    Indecision is Costing You Everything

    Indecision is Costing You Everything

    Does indecision rule your life? Are you stuck in a cycle of self-doubt and fear of failure, causing you to hesitate at every turn? Today I have a powerful episode lined up for you on the massive impact of chronic indecision on success and how it can hamper your productivity, strategic thinking, and even your ability to rest. 

    In my opinion, indecision is a SYMPTOM, not a root issue-   And perfectionism, people-pleasing, self-doubt, overwhelm, and  avoiding accountability are all things that contribute to chronic indecision.

    Welcome to Mindset March! 🧠

    Welcome to Mindset March! 🧠

    Real Talk: Your business, no matter how hard you hustle, will likely never outgrow your mindset. While it is very much true that there are very real limitations and barriers in most peoples lives, whether those are circumstantial or systemic, the number one biggest deciding factor in the outcomes you are able to create for yourself is the way you think about yourself and your potential and ability.

    This March on the podcast, I’m doing a deep dive into everything I’ve learned and applied when it comes to mindset and personal development. We’re covering:
    SELF-WORTH: things like confidence, imposter syndrome, overcoming fear & insecurity RESILIENCE & TENACITY - how to thrive instead of survive when it feels like life keeps handing you a pile of 💩 over and over again  MONEY MINDSET: Scarcity, wealth building, overspending, impulse buying, debt & more 
    Mindset is such a nuanced and personal thing… So as you’re listening to this episode on the future episodes that I’m going to put out, I really want to invite you to let me know how these concepts and these conversations are landing for you. You can email me or you can DM me on Instagram- I would genuinely love to hear from you as you listen to these episodes,  to hear how things are affecting you, and what questions and thoughts come up for you as you listen. My goal here is to improve YOUR life and business by sharing things that have dramatically improved mine- so make sure you’re subscribed so you don’t miss a single minute!
