The holding on is holding you back

It’s not the fear of moving forward that causes us so much pain, it’s staying put that causes the problem. It’s the inaction, the sitting inert in fear for extended periods of time.

The holding on is holding you back

It becomes normal not to make a decision.

It’s not the fear of moving forward that causes us so much pain, it’s staying put that causes the problem. It’s the inaction, the sitting inert in fear for extended periods of time that upgrades the mental mind chatter, which intensifies the drone of frustration and eventually that turns into debilitating anxiety or depression. By making the decision to not make a decision we hold ourselves in the state of heightened emotional sensitivity, to a point where it normalises and becomes routine. 

The demands of modern life

Regrettably, it appears to many of us, that this heightened state is what modern life demands of us, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Modern life does actually need you to be; 

  • Calm, not chaotic 
  • Focused not frustrated 
  • Strategic not stuck. 

It’s hard. Everyone else’s obligation presses upon you, and the moment you turn around someone else is giving you something to do – your boss, your partner, kids, even the media with constant requests to do and buy more. 

What makes the difference?

You do. You get to decide what the next action is. You just haven’t asked yourself the right questions to create the momentum, and anyway, it’s not the questions that are the problem, it’s the answers you need to face up to. But, and we say that word rarely, when you have the answers you make stronger decisions, they may not be comfortable, they will definitely provide clarity. 

 

From baby steps to strides

You have a choice if the holding on is holding you back. What if we were to ask you;

What are you putting effort into that’s holding you back?

What’s the next action you need to take that will positively move you forward?

What healthy experiences do you need in order to create that calm?

How would life be different when you’ve acted on these answers? 

Start with small steps, make the steps regular, and turn them into forward strides.
