Making a decision is the most important skill you can learn
I am not sure why it is so difficult for some of us to make definite decision in our lives. I know I have struggled with this for the majority of my life and it is something I have desired to overcome. So I set out to gather a list of tips and ways to start incorporating decision making habits in your day to day life.
One thing I did not realize about indecisiveness is that is will control your life. If you do not choose to change this habit you will find that years have passed you by and you still have not reached the panicles you desire to reach. According to Napoleon Hill decision making it one of the most important traits of successful men and woman. Hill felt Decision Making was so important he devoted an entire chapter in his book Think and Grow Rich to Definite Decision Making.
So why if we all know how important this is do we procrastinate on making an important decision. From my experience, it has a lot to do with the fear of the unknown, failure and other peoples opinions. I recall hearing Dave Chapelle share his experience when he first went on stage at the Apollo and was boo’d off stage and his first thought was hey this is not so bad. And I believe what we think is terrifying it not ever as bad as we build it up to be in our minds. For example, I am afraid of heights and every time I am faced with getting on a roller coaster I think of all the things that can go wrong. But it is never as bad as I imagine.
