Hi Team...

I have a special message to share with you today....

I feel like there has been a plague going around and it is not COVID...

It is the disease known as OVER-THINKING.

Yup.

Over-thinking is a disease that can hit all of us from time to time... and for some, it becomes chronic...

A chronic situation of questioning and over-questioning every thought, every decision, and even questioning our own beliefs....

Can you relate?

Well, here is the biggest issue with OVER-THINKING...

It is the #1-Reason WHY people do not take action...

And, without action, there is no result except more thought...

Do you see how that works?

  • Thinking + No Action = More Thinking...
  • Thinking + Action = Results (Forward Movement)

One of these formulas keeps you stuck...

The other moves you forward....

In a time where many are stuck, jammed up, and even depressed, one of the worst things one can do is OVER-THINK as it will only enhance those negative situations....

As a Coach, I would rather you take action and fail, rather than trying to solve the puzzle in your head like a game of Wheel of Fortune....

That will never work....

The only way to results is through ACTION.

That is it...

Good Action, Bad Action, either way you will get a result...

And, if you take the wrong action or step, the great part is you can course-correct in the moment...

But at least you have an answer...

At least you are no longer left wondering...

I was mentoring a young, mid twenties former athlete a few months ago...

He got laid off and was feeling bad for himself...

Months went by and he was falling deeper into a haze...

Then, our relationship began....

It began by having him do structured research, followed immediately by applying to jobs...

We did that for 4-weeks...

At the end of week 4, he had two job offers...

ACTION.

Action Is The Answer... (maybe my next book title??)....

But it is true...

Without action- you have no chance.

Years ago, when I was leading the staff at my 5-training facilities, I would always tell them, "If you have nothing to do, or do not know what to do next, make a mess, at least you will then have something to clean-up and will not sit around thinking too much about what is next."....

And that is the truth.

Get busy taking action...

Explore.

Have fun.

Take a chance on yourself!

But get the HELL out of your head... 

It is the only way to get the answers you seek ... (and coaching helps too :))

Let's go!

Your Coach,

COACH DANA CAVALEA
