How To Overcome Doublemindedness and Go After What You Want​

Doublemindedness is like being a kid in a candy store - there are SO many options!

One of the biggest barriers to asking for what you want, whether in our personal lives or business lives, can be as simple as not exactly knowing what you do want! It’s almost unthinkable to make a big ask if you aren’t sure what it is you are wanting. The doublemindedness makes us second-guess and can lead us to avoid going after what we want.

We start overthinking so much that simple ideas or solutions become tricky decisions.  Kind of like making a mountain out of a molehill. Once our brain goes into overdrive, it’s hard to rein it in to make decisions.

I’ve faced doublemindedness so many times in my life. The latest being whether to find a J-O-B after we closed our kitchen and bath business or to start my own Virtual Expert® business.

Did I want to go through all of that work to set up a business again?

Did I want to have to drive 30 minutes to/from work everyday, each way? Not to mention the doubts and mental gremlins.

If you tend to be doubleminded (aka indecisive) it can keep you from getting what you want.

Here are some tricks for getting clear on what you want so you can ask for what you want with confidence.

If you can’t come to a clear decision, it is hard to ask for what you want. 
Being doubleminded prevents you from choosing the right path and going after it with confidence. Reduce your doubleminded thinking and your fear of making the wrong decision. And you will make way for the joy of going after and getting exactly what you want.

Don't keep all of these tips to yourself. Please share them with your friends.
