It’s time to be really honest with yourself…
This week we are going to talk about avoidance.
I am sure, I have no doubt, that you have something on your to-do list, that’s been there for a LONG time.
You’ve been avoiding doing it.
You can’t blame the normal excuses, or being busy, because you’ve managed to do all the other things on the list.
All you’ve done, is move that one item from one day to the next, you’ve maybe even stopped writing it on the list.
This is now avoidance, not just you being busy… but you are actually putting off starting it.
So I have a question for you.
Why? Why haven’t you done that thing yet?
I can say the same thing. I have some videos that I’ve been meaning to record for a long time (not these ones, weekly mini trainings are different), and I’d been putting them off. Genuinely avoiding them.
I really had to stop and ask myself why, why was I avoiding them?
And the answer often comes down to fear.
That was the case here, I’d been avoiding them. I had this fear that I didn’t know enough yet to get the videos done, that I didn’t know everything I needed to know.
The truth is – I already had everything I needed, all the pieces, and I knew enough… but I had convinced myself that I didn’t know enough yet.
When you are avoiding something, you do are holding onto a fear about it. You’ll give me lots of excuses, lots of reasons, but it all comes down to fear.
What I want you to do today, is ask yourself…
What is the thing on your list that you keep avoiding?
Why haven’t you done it yet?
Be brave, share with us here.
