In this episode, I dive deep into the factors that often hold us back from making decisions and taking action, especially as women of color. We explore the three critical elements: belief, authority, and impact, that can paralyze us with indecision. I challenge the notion that you need to believe in something to take action and explain how it’s okay not to believe right away. I emphasize the importance of reclaiming our authority and giving ourselves permission to believe in our dreams and goals, no matter how audacious they may seem. Finally, we confront the fear of impact and the burden of representation, encouraging you to choose yourself and love yourself no matter the outcome. By addressing these three elements, we can overcome indecision, embrace failure, and move closer to our goals, making more informed and impactful decisions.

Tune in to gain insights that can help you overcome indecision and take control of your life. And if you need support with this work, reach out for One-On-One Coaching. Book a Breakthrough Call here. Talk soon!
