FOBO

Did you all ever hear/see the commercials for a company wherein they mentioned folks not making decisions because of Fear of Better Options (FOBO)?

For some reason, that popped in my head today as I was consciously evaluating my thoughts.  My head is still very much in the space of exploring an amazing opportunity.  I'm narrowing down some options and I'm starting to get very excited.  My excitement is growing as I proceed to analyze things.  But, I continue to practice consciousness around my relentless thoughts regarding what if there's something better...what if I'm overlooking something important?

In the past, I've allowed fear to stagnate my progress.  There's no danger involved here.  It's simply the fear that I haven't assessed all my options.  I am stopping this behavior.  It's not serving me.  I'm digging deep to run down my concerns/fears, confronting them with facts.  Fear can stop anyone from implementing a change if we let it.  I'm cognizant of past behavior and am doing my best not to repeat the cycle.

If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.
— Marcus Aurelius
