You are a thoughtful person.
You are rational, you consider all the angles, you laugh when your friends tell you you should start an advice column. But, over the years something happened, you’re so busy analyzing that you can’t take the leap, that you ned to take to move forward. The more you consider what to do, the less able you are to do anything. Does this describe you?
YOUR HOMEWORK IS…
Discover your focus, find something to believe in and commit to it.
Remember: Not choosing is a choice
Buridan’s ass is an illustration of a paradox in philosophy in the conception of free will. It refers to a hypothetical situation wherein a donkey that is equally hungry and thirsty is placed precisely midway between a stack of hay and a pail of water. Since the paradox assumes the ass will always go to whichever is closer, it dies of both hunger and thirst since it cannot make any rational decision between the hay and water.
Write all your choices on paper, arrange them onto a board, look at them, throw them into the air and pick the one that lands furthest away. Make a game of choosing your choices. Once you’ve made a choice check ii with your gut feelings. Do you feel lighter or heavier, are you holding your breath or sighing with relief. These are the type of feelings you may have when having a clinical hypnotherapy session. Why? Because you are rehearsing in your minds eye the exact situation or issue you’re are fixated on. Clinical hypnotherapy helps you see and then then make choices. Working with Rochelle if you are a Waffler ends your waffling!
Sometimes making the wrong choice is a choice in the right direction. A person who stands at the cross roads and can’t make a choice will go nowhere.
