“If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary” – Jim Rohn
Whether we realize it or not, every single day, we make thousands upon thousands of decisions.
Some are pretty simple such as what to make for breakfast, while others can be a bit more complicated such as which job offer to accept.
When we have so many potential decisions to make, landing on one can be very difficult and make us question our instincts.
Thoughts such as… “What if I end up regretting this?” or “I’m not sure if this is a good idea.” can stop us from going after what we want.
When it comes to making decisions, of course, you want to feel like you made the “right” one.
Too often, we can let the fear of the unknown impact or delay our decision-making process.
Sure, in life you may regret a few choices – but you know what? That’s how you grow!
We may not be able to predict what will happen next week, next month or next year, but we can be ready to deal with any potential obstacles and learn how to trust our gut.
List All The Pros And Cons
Making a tough decision means considering all sides – the good and the bad.
Break down the options and think about how each side will work out best for you in the long run.
It also can’t hurt to think about how each choice aligns with your personal values.
Think About Other Factors
Ask yourself, “Who else is there to consider?”
Think about how each decision can impact not just you, but potentially the people around you.
If you were considering taking a job in another country, that choice might also impact your close friends and family. Don’t be shy to reach out to your network and ask what they think. At the end of the day, the decision is your call, but it can’t hurt to get new insight.
“Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing.” – Denis Waitle
