These are my notes from a recent Trey Talks call by the Founder of Navan, Trey Knight. I’m sharing them because they resonated with me. What do you think?
“Have you ever been invited to do something or wanted to do something? And the minute you wanted to actually do it, you hesitated?
Now looking back, if you could change your decision, you could have probably changed your life. But what stopped you? Those five seconds.
There is a 5 Second window when your gut/instincts say YES, but you hesitate and the opportunity passes. You don’t act. You pull the emergency brake. In those precious 5 seconds, all of your self doubts pop up to ‘protect’ you. It’s called fear.”
So, if you want to change your life, you need to act within those 5 Seconds!
Now from my own personal experience, I’ve learned that it’s never as bad as I think it will be when the doubts and fear creep in and try to rob me from the opportunity to say yes.. In fact, for the most part in my life’s experiences, when I didn’t allow fear to hold me back, it was absolutely wonderful!
So my advice to you is….Just Do It! It’s never as bad as you think it will be and most often it’s wonderful! Come on…you have 5 seconds! Live my friends! Enjoy!
Don’t let those 5 seconds get the best of you!
