Rachel & Shane Krider’s second episode of their personal development podcast is all about gratitude. Below is a snippet of the podcast where Shane talks about the analysis of paralysis.

So many people are stuck in fear. They want to make a change, but they’re just too afraid that they can’t. They can’t tell whether it’s good or bad, or they should or they shouldn’t. How many people get stuck in the analysis of paralysis? This is being stuck in fight-or-flight.

The way out of fight-or-flight is to create a gratitude practice. If you really commit to it, you will get out of fight-or-flight, the blood will flow in your brain, and you will see things and understand things on a completely different level. Have you ever been just completely angry, and blind angry? What’s going to be the outcome of the conversation you have with people while you’re this angry? You know that once you’ve calmed down, you’ll have regrets. That’s the higher perception, but most of the time, you’re unable to see it in the moment. I can’t tell you how many of those moments I’ve had in my life. It’s embarrassing and it’s humbling. But a little bit of gratitude can keep you out of those situations, or if you do get into such a situation, they can really help you get through it.

We’ve all got a subliminal threshold of conscious awareness. There’s things that have a subliminal impact on us. They have an impact and they trigger us, but it’s below our level of conscious awareness. We’re not aware that we were triggered. A lot of advertising operates on this. What you are consciously aware of or not is a moveable threshold. It has a lot has to do with the fight-or-flight situation and the blood flow of the mind. As you become grateful, you don’t feel like you’re in so much danger. The blood starts to flow differently. You can then see that your perception improves. You can then begin to see that maybe there’s something else is going on but there’s plenty of things you can do about it, plenty directions you can go, you feel like you can create a better outcome. Overall, you start trusting your own ability to create.

It’s like the law of attraction, you raise your vibration and people are gonna be less afraid of you. They’re gonna be more willing to smile at you, they’re going to be more willing to want to give you an opportunity, maybe more willing to listen to you, and they’re gonna be able to understand you better.
