Have you ever found yourself at a crossroads in your life, and you didn’t know which path to take? Have you ever found yourself dithering, afraid to make a decision not because it might be the wrong decision, but because you were afraid of what you might lose out by deciding against the other possibilities you saw before you?
I have, several times. I’ve seen decision points coming on fast, I’ve seen my options develop and I knew that out of all of my several options I could only choose one. I’ve dithered, several times in my life. And as I stood there unable to make a decision, I’ve seen those several options fade away with the passage of a few minutes or hours.
Make a decision. Even if it’s the wrong decision, make it, and get on with your life. Pay the price for your decision – there will be one. There always is. But don’t stand there, unable to make a decision out of fear of what you are going to lose.
Because what you wind up loosing is the right to determine your own fate.
