Welcome to Navigating Your Career, the only podcast that blends personal development, professional skills and psychology to help you get happy.

At work and live the life you want.

If you want to stop feeling stuck and start feeling better, this is the place for you. I’m your host, Melissa Lawrence. Let’s get started.

Hello and welcome to this week’s episode of the podcast. Now, this week we’re going to do something a little bit different because there is something that you need to know about. I know if you listen to my podcast that you will not want to miss a training that I have coming up this weekend. I am going to be teaching a oneofa kind training that is going to make you a confident decision maker and reduce, if not completely eliminate the overthinking that you experience. This is a problem that most, if not all of my clients experience. But here’s the thing. Everything you want is on the other side of a decision that you’re avoiding or that you’re making out of guilt or obligation or people pleasing and you’re unhappiness at work and not being where you want to be. That is because there is a decision that you’re not making, or decisions that you’re making for reasons that aren’t really true to you. If you’re not at the level you want to be at, it’s because of the same thing, a decision you’re not making, or decisions you’re making out of obligation or people pleasing. This training, which is really like a workshop, because we are going to do some handson exercises, we are going to apply what you learn in real time, bring your undecided decisions with you because you’re going to be making a shift that you need in order to make progress in your career.

And if we’re being real, it’s your life too. Because how we do one thing is how we do everything. If you have a hard time making a decision about what your next career move should be, you likely also have a hard time deciding where to go for a group happy hour without asking other people what they think. Believe me, I’ve been there too. Making decisions is hard for a reason. And when you go on living like it just has to be this way, or it is just your thought process, or maybe there is something wrong with you, maybe you just need to be better, we need to talk about it. It isn’t as easy as just making a decision when you don’t even know what decisions need to be made. Some of you have decisions to make that you don’t even realize that you think is just how it is, or you don’t think you have a choice, so you’re going to become aware of those things. Also, you don’t know why decision making is hard and why you think like you do. And you’re going to learn that too. And you certainly don’t know the brain traps we experience that set us up to be stuck.

You are literally set up to fail. And so I am going to share with you what to avoid so you don’t fall into those traps. Are you ready? This is going to be amazing. This training is Sunday, November 13, at 03:00 P.m. Eastern Time. It’s going to be on Zoom and it will be recorded. And right now, this training is completely free. There is no cost for you other than your time. Because this training, I decided this a few weeks ago. I’m seeing the patterns come up over and over and over again. And when I thought about what would make the biggest difference for you, my podcast listeners, for anyone that is associated with me, for my clients current past, it would be to make really good decisions, confident decisions. So during the training on Sunday, you’re not only going to become aware of how indecision affects you personally, but you’re going to workshop all of the areas you’re undecided and apply the steps to making confident decisions. This training is going to not only change how you feel right now, it’s going to help you make more progress more quickly than you ever have.

Because the more decisions you make, the more quickly you make decisions, the more progress you make. It’s a skill that is going to shift your life for the better you’re going to be in practicing this new skill. Live during the training. Imagine how much more time you’d have if you didn’t overthink or have analysis paralysis. Imagine how much more progress you’d make if you knew how to make decisions that are quick and easy and that you felt confident about without worrying if it was the right decision or what to do if you don’t have a guarantee. This is 100% possible. It’s something I learned to do for myself. And now I’m teaching you. Are you coming to November Eastern? Register at my website, , and I will see you there.
