As you make your decisions it is common to experience anxiety because you want to make the right decision. Reduce your anxiety by mentally accepting that the decision has already been made, then act. Some decisions will require you to do what you need to do even when you don’t want to do it.
Face it, making decisions can be and often are difficult, especially decisions that come with significant consequences. In the end there are no guaranties. Some of your decisions will be great, some of them will be good, and some of them will be not so good. That’s just the way it is.
- Gather and analyze the data.
- What is the best thing that will happen if I do this?
- What is the best thing that will happen if I don’t do this?
- What is the worst thing that will happen if I do this?
- What is the worst thing that will happen if I don’t do this?
- Then, make your decision, pray for confirmation since it helps to know you have God’s support; then act on it within 24-72 hours; don’t procrastinate.
Truth is, because of the impact decisions have on you (decisions determine destiny), you should not expect anyone to make your decisions for you. Nor should you wait until your circumstances get so bad that your decisions are made for you. The ball is in your court!
Fact is, none of us are perfect decision makers. We all need to embrace risk, trust, make a decision, move forward, and then don’t look back.
