No Decision Is Still A DecisionBy
Just wanted to bring this up as I feel it is an important thing to note.
When you are on the fence about a decision and you end up not making one, you’ve actually made one. It may have been by default, but it’s still a decision. And, having decisions made by default is not taking charge of your life.
Making decisions is one of the most important skills we can develop in life and in business. If it’s not a strong point for you, start to practice on small things. For example, when you go out to eat, pick something and close your menu. Decide that what you’ve chosen is right for you, regardless of what anyone else orders or what else you see. We are all faced with 100’s of little decisions each day, use them to practice making choices quickly and firmly.
Being in a space of indecision is a form of self-sabotage. You end up spending way more mental energy thinking about things than is necessary. Most likely you had an immediate, gut response and it was the right one. Learn to notice that and making decisions will be much easier for you.
Another important thing to note about decisions… be sure to stick with them once you’ve made them.
What I mean is, don’t hem and haw and worry about whether it was the right decision. It’s done. The time to consider all the options and get all the facts is BEFORE you decide (and you want to take your time for big things, still moving decisively and swiftly). Once you decide, turn it over to the Universe and get on with things.
Here is one of my favorite quotes from Abraham-Hicks helps me a lot when I’m feeling challenged by a decision, “You can’t get it wrong and you can’t get it done.” There is no such thing as ‘wrong’… life is a meant to be a joyful journey, the only time you run into problems is if you aren’t living it. When you don’t make decisions, you aren’t making choices. When you don’t choose, you limit yourself and what the Universe can send your way.
