Hesitation as the Biggest Obstacle to Happiness

Hesitation has been one of my BIGGEST obstacles to happiness.
Known as Samsaya in the #YogaSutras.

It’s why I understand the “Power of NOW” – the importance of “right timing.” This comes from Chapter 1 Verse 1 of the Yoga Sutras of Pantanjali which I talk about in real people terms here: https://youtu.be/hqoErpvFKxQ (click below)
.

What used to happen (and will again if I’m not tuned in) is I will get into analysis paralysis, fed by self-doubt, amplify worry by rehearsing the possible future scenarios (including those created by my catastrophic brain), and I’ll get stuck.

This has impacted me personally and in my business.

Then I’ll snap myself out of hesitation and hurry ahead but 10 times out of 10 it’s too late.

I missed the open door, the easeful way through of the NOW.

And I’ll get angry with myself for waiting too long.

Over and over again, I’d “almost” get things in right timing but hesitation would through it all off.

I’d basically make things 100 times harder than they needed to be.

–> Do you do that too?
.
Here’s my advice, just do the thing.
Stop stopping.
Get unstuck.
Say YES.

Hi love, I’m Silvia!

I’m a specialist in starting over. 

Trauma revealed truths that took me to some faraway places for healing and wisdom. In Bali, South America, New Zealand, Australia, Laos, Hawaii and Malaysia, I soaked it up, took bold actions, and expanded what was possible for me.

Through all of this I learned something profound; the power of resiliency can be taught and even making a 5% change can change the future dramatically.

Now I teach women like you to access the power within you to change your life, celebrate your genius and start over to create any life you dare to dream.
