Nicky's Nuggets to Real Life Stress
As I work with my clients they get to know early on which of these 3 Freedoms(Money, Time, or Relationship) are most important to them. At any given time the highest seeking priority changes. Without the clarity of knowing which one is truly the desired freedom at a point in time then decisions become very hard to make. From the decision of what to eat, what to wear, which event to attend, who to hang out with, etc.
I remember so clearly when my sweet Maci, couldn't even decide what to eat at Sonic. I, not getting any "mother of the year" awards got so frustrated and said "well, that's a sure sign of lacking confidence". My word it felt like eternity and she then she had a break down. We had been at the menu for what seemed like forever and I just didn't get what was soooo hard to decide. I'm sure she remembers the story different than I do, lol, I think she did eventually eat something then or later, but her decision making to menus is definitely better than it was when she was 16. Phew, I'm glad that we made it through that phase.
Now that I know better I get to teach others how to prioritize their quick decisions so that things like what to eat and wear doesn't zap the focus of what's really important. So one of the questions to ask yourself when you do know which freedom is most important to is "will ordering this get me closer to "time freedom, money freedom, or relationship freedom"?
If you are seeking time freedom then you would likely not elect to fix an 8 course meal for you and your family, but instead would decide something that doesn't take as long to prepare, eat, or clean up after. Now, if you are seeking relationship freedom perhaps you are hungry for a fancy, gourmet, luxury meal and you LOVE to cook and spend time in the kitchen. Perhaps, the washing of dishes gives you a sense of peace, detox, and purging. Eating a large meal and getting to spend time with layers of dishes is something that you get excited for. On the other hand, if money freedom is your desire then you likely wouldn't buy the filet mignon and lobster for the meal, but instead ground meat and a pack of crawfish tails near the end of the season.
The key is to know what it is that you truly seek. Here's a hint: it is almost never what you think it is. Only after I dive in with you can you truly know which freedom is the one that is top priority and then decision making becomes so easy.
