Often when we are fearing something, like starting a new project, changing jobs, taking a different path, we allow ourselves to over-analyse.

It is a protection mechanism to avoid ‘danger’ of doing something new or different.

We end up giving ourselves too many options, too many ‘what ifs’.

Simplify.

The few the options the less you will find excuses not to do something, often no option is the biggest catalyst for action.

After all whatever you are changing is unlikely to lead to a life or death situation.

What we fear is the best option and it is usually instinctively the one we fear the most.
