Understanding your present circumstances in life
Are you one of those people who fall short of their life’s desires due to having a difficulty in making decisions? You are not alone. In fact, many men and women, even if they work hard to master themselves in other personal development areas, falter in their efforts to seek a better life because of their lack of decision-making skills.
It is not as if these men and women do not set goals or have great visions, but rather they lack the courage needed to take risks in life in order to make changes. The most common reason for not making decisions is the fear of moving from the known to the unknown. This can also be referred to as the “comfort zone”.
We all have many different levels of comfort zones. And it is quite normal to want to stay within ones comfort zone, especially when it comes to making big decisions that can invariably affect our life in a great way. It is never easy to move away from what you already know, even if the change may be for the better. Other times, people may fear the decision-making process because it will expose them to possible criticism and evaluation from their family and friends.
If you want to achieve any great success in life, then mastering the ability to ignore the naysayers is an absolute must if you are to change and succeed. Of course you do not want to be wrong in the eyes of others, but you must learn how to ignore the good opinion of other people, always.
Think for a moment about all of the decisions you have made up to this point in your life. Guess what? Those decisions, every one of them, have culminated to what you are, what you have, what you do, and how you feel about yourself, right at this very moment.
This may come as a cold shock to you but you are not the victim of circumstances that happen to you, you are actually the creator of the decisions that can work for you or against you, it’s your “choice”. Having said that, it is quite obvious why the lack of making decisions in our lives may keep us in unwanted situations, because of the comfort level of staying put, even if where we are at is harmful to us in some shape or form.
And regardless of how much you may tend to blame other people or events that you think have shaped your life, the truth is that every decision was your decision to make. You are responsible.
