For as long as I can remember, I’ve lived my life as an indecisive person. Please don’t ask me to make a decision, I don’t want to be responsible for that! Cue anxious thoughts, and swirling mind drama!
I remember agonizing in confusion over what to major in in college. It seemed like it was an impossible choice with no right answer. Eventually I had to just figure it out and pick something because I was out of time. And throughout my life, I always hoped no one would ask me where to eat! I don’t want that kind of pressure! Haha.
We’ve all probably been there. Big decisions or small, we often spin in confusion long enough to put off making a decision. Or we will say “I’m confused” in order to not take responsibility for understanding something.
What if you could stop confusion in it’s tracks in your life? Wait, what? I’m confused. Can I do that?
Decide to Stop Confusion
Yes. The thing is… we get to just decide! We can decide NOT to be confused. I remember when one of my mentors said that to me. “Let’s just decide not to be confused from here on out.” Wow. My mind was blown. I can decide to not be confused. When I feel confused, I can actually say to myself, “I am not confused, I have multiple options and I’m figuring this out.”
That was honestly so freeing to a life-long indecisive person who thought I was being “smart” taking time to really think things through. I get to just decide to stop confusion! I started being able to make choices, and take action on them right away. This has 100% improved my productivity.
Make the Decision, Make the Decision Right
I’ve been challenging myself to be decisive. To just decide. Big or small. Right now, today. Make the decision and make it right. I’m not saying you shouldn’t weigh the factors or explore your options, but at some point you need to stop the confusion and realize even if you had all the information in the world, at the end of the day you are the one who needs to make the decision.
So I started deciding. I can decide if I want to order the cheeseburger or the lettuce wrap, or I can decide if I want to create my own business. I can decide if I want to invest in a course or program to improve my skills. AND I can stop being confused right now. I can be good at making decisions starting right now!
What if there is a wrong decision?
But what if I make the wrong decision? It’s ok! Nothing has gone wrong. You can correct it, and choose how you respond to it. You can decide to be ok with it, or you can change your mind again. What if the decision was simple, what would you do?
What do you want to stop being confused about today?
Do you want to learn to take more decisive action? I help my clients every day learn how to make empowering decisions and work through the choices running through their mind so they can get on the right track as quickly as possible. The first decision is to get on a consult with me. And from there the decisions and possibilities are limitless. All you have to do is decide.
