How do you make decisions? Is it from a deep place of knowing and intuition? Or is it merely out of fear? 

Making big decisions (or even small ones) can understandably be stressful and anxiety-inducing. But being stuck in fear-based thinking is a prescription for misery - and for living a life doing stuff you don’t actually want to do. 

This week, Henri Stevenson, Executive Coach and Shapes trainer, joins us to discuss how to stop making decisions based on fear and anxiety. We break down how many of us fall into this pattern and then share simple strategies to get our egos out of the way and base our thinking on freedom and love.

If you want to stop making decisions based on fear and live in alignment with what you REALLY want, listen to our full conversation in this episode of You Are Not a Frog.

Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:

  1. Discover how to tell the difference between decisions made from intuition versus fear.
  2. Learn how to stop making decisions purely through fear of complaints or criticisms.
  3. Find out why being self-indulgent is anything ‘but’.
