Remember the song that goes, "torn between two lovers, feeling like a fool?" I know I can feel that way about all sorts of things - not just lovers. Grin. Perhaps you're struggling to decide which business idea to focus on. You know you need to choose, but you don't know how. Your hands give us clues as to what may be challenging you.

The middle zone of your thumb is known as your zone of logic or the "third eye" zone. This part of your hand represents your ability to discern, plan, and decide. This zone, between the tip and base of your thumb, can sometimes contain a series of horizontal lines. These horizontal lines operate as energy blocks.

If you find these horizontal lines on the middle zone of your thumb, it means you are inundated with choices. If you are a business owner or wanting to start a business, you probably either own one or more businesses or you're having trouble deciding which one to focus on.

Let's use logic to explore your dilemma.

#1 You have LOTS of choices, lots of options. This is good. This represents abundance.

#2 Chances are you created all these choices because you have many talents. This is also abundance.

#3 You want to satisfy every choice and end up with lots of unfinished projects.

#4 You struggle with overwhelm, lack of focus, frustration, and indecision.

#5 Planning and implementing a CLEAR plan... huh, what's a plan???

If you have horizontals on the middle zone of your thumb, you are abundant but confused. What is required is MAKING A CHOICE. In this particular situation, HOW you choose is more important than WHAT you choose. You simply need to choose and stick with that choice.

Here's is my pet formula for HOW to choose well.

Get a piece of paper and lay it down landscape-style. Draw a grid on the paper with 5 rows and approximately 15 columns . Make a list of all the options, ideas, and goals you are currently contemplating and put them at the top of each column. (You may need more than one piece of paper, LOL!)

Then list your top 5 values down the left-hand column, one for each row. (Mine include Love, Health, Presence, Creativity and Freedom.) Going across each row, rate the project listed at the top of the column from 1 to 5 - 1 the lowest, 5 the highest - in terms of how that project expresses the value in the corresponding row. For example, let's say I want to publish a new e-book. I would go down the column, rating that project from 1 to 5 in terms of love, health, presence, creativity and freedom.

Now, add up the totals for each column at the bottom of the page. Which projects ranked highest and which ranked lowest for honoring your values? Now, pick the project that rated highest and FINISH it. Do whatever it takes to stay focused on your target. A coach, mastermind group, or goal-buddy can be invaluable. Just remember, you MUST choose or continue to run like a hamster on the wheel of choices.
