Indecision is the worst form of mental fuckery.
Standing tall in a strong and empowered decision feels good, while spinning in ‘what if’s’ and ‘i don’t know’s’ is equal to laying in six fiery hells while simultaneously fighting a stomach virus. (Did I paint a picture well enough about how I feel about indecision?)
When trying to make a hard decision, there’s two ways to go about it.
Option 1: Believe that you’re responsible for creating the “right” decision, putting all responsibility on your shoulders that you will enjoy the outcome and the decision is the very best decision possible.
Option 2: You weigh and study the options as well as the consequences…then you choose your decision from an empowered and intuitive place, never to pivot or concern yourself again. You reap the rewards as well as the consequences and move on to adjust and adapt as best you can.
Hint: One of the ways will create anxiety, stress, and all the emotions. The other will create empowerment and freedom.
It is absolutely impossible to think you can make a decision with the responsibility that you mustn’t make a regrettable decision. You have no ability to see into the future in order to decide if it will be regrettable, so believing this is equivalent to believing you can time travel.
“Studies have shown that the most successful people make decisions rapidly because they are clear on their values and what they really want for their lives. The same studies show that they are slow to change their decisions, if at all. On the other hand, people who fail usually make decisions slowly and change their minds quickly, always bouncing back and forth. Just decide!”
— Anthony Robbins, Awaken the Giant Within
