Why do so many people try to avoid making a decision?
- Do they think that by not making a decision they can’t make a mistake?
- Maybe they won’t look bad?
There could be many reasons and there usually are.
What most of us fail to realize is that by not making a decision, we are actually making a decision by default.
What I mean is that you are deciding not to move forward.
When an opportunity comes into your life it is a signal that you need to decide what you want. Do you want to accept the opportunity or decline the opportunity? If you decide to stall the decision you are actually deciding to decline the opportunity.
The interesting thing about decisions is that they carry with them the power to grow. If you decide to accept the opportunity you will grow into the place that will make that opportunity succeed. If you stay on the fence, you are deciding to stay at your current level of growth.
Make decisions based on what you want, not on what you perceive that you don’t have.
