MFTP Episode 37: Decisions, Decisions

From choosing what to have for dinner to planning our next career moves, making decisions can feel im-freaking-possible for us recovering perfectionists, people pleasers, and comparison junkies. We become paralyzed by allllllllll the options and by our desire to make the “perfect” choice so we can somehow miraculously avoid any possibility of failure or regret. We search for certainty and guarantees of success where none exist and often get stuck in endless surveying and outsourcing our decisions to others.

In today’s episode, we’re saying eff that and figuring out how to tap into our intuition, feel the uncertainty, and do it anyway. You in??
