Ep 56: Making Decisions

Do you sometimes avoid making decisions? Are you unclear about how to make decisions or take action that aligns with what feels right for you in your life? In this heartfelt conversation, Meg speaks with the coach and author Benita Bensch about the decision-making process, what can stop you from taking aligned action and why we often seek the permission of others to help make important decisions in our life. During this conversation, you’ll understand how to become more aware of your decision-making skills and why there’s so much power in taking charge of your personal decision-making. Walk away with essential skills you can implement today to build a more fulfilling life by your own design.

In this conversation we discuss

▫️ The decision-making process

▫️ What stops us from taking aligned actions

▫️ Why we often seek out the permission of others

▫️ And so much more…

You can quote us on that…

“We can easily go through life not even thinking about the [decision-making] process – or understanding our strengths or weaknesses when it comes to decision-making.”

Benita Bensch

“We can make the people in our lives the authority for us, where we are continually trying to live up to their standards.”

Benita Bensch

“No one else can stand in your shoes authentically.”
