Personal Development, Business, Finance, and Investing for Everyone
An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.
Ambivalence. It’s a big word with an even bigger meaning. Surely you’ve felt it before.
It’s that feeling of internal conflict that you sense when you have mixed emotions about a decision—or indecision. It’s that gut-wrenching feeling when you don’t follow your gut instinct—even though you know you should.
There are many reasons why you might experience ambivalence—the simultaneous and contradictory attitudes or feelings toward an object, person, or action—and tune into this dysergy can pay huge dividends toward achieving our most important goals and priorities.
To better understand this, you simply need to take a page out of the great Zig Ziglar’s book and ask yourself the following question:
Will what I’m about to do bring me closer to or
This crucial question helps you do two key things. First, you’ll need to honestly and establish your most important goal and priorities. In other words, you need to know what’s truly important to you. Secondly, it will help you objectively assess whether your current actions, attitudes, and behaviors align with that.
In the end, every decision (or indecision, which is a decision in and of itself) has an opportunity cost. If you do one thing, you’re not doing something else, and vice versa. You can apply this question to every aspect of your life--your health, your finances, your relationships, your work, your family, you name it. Take for example...
I think you get the picture. Next time you’re feeling that sense of internal conflict, take the one-question survey: Is this behavior, activity, or attitude bringing me closer to or further from the person I want to be?
Cheering you on! Stay safe and healthy! God bless!
To a better you!
