Everyone at times struggles with indecision at the choices before them. Some of us just fearlessly plunge ahead without worrying about the after effects while others continue to debate the options that are open to them over and over again. If you are among those that have a hard time making up your mind, then here is how to get a better grasp on the problem of indecision to finally move ahead.
One of the biggest problems many have is how we think of ourselves. Often, we unfairly assign our own labels for abilities, looks, character, etc. based on opinions from others that could influence our level of confidence to make a decision. Unjustified fear about making the wrong choice can result to cause paralyzing indecision.
Though being a perfectionist is an admirable quality, it also can present a problem as another form of fear. Perfectionists may delve too deeply into their expectations about whatever the choice may be to make a decision that they can live with.
Then again, others struggling with indecision don’t want the responsibility in case of later blame is another. After all, it is always easier to assign the fault to another without burdening ourselves.
Another reason indecision could be holding you back is because of a tendency to procrastinate. Continually avoiding making a decision by delaying a response is just making excuses. To overcome it is learning to take responsibility and consider those options in a timely fashion before settling on a choice.
In order to stop struggling with indecision, you need to change your mind set first of all. Looking at all the facts and understand what is involved or risked can help. Just as important, trust instincts because they often are right. Finally, learn to give yourself credit for the power to make the right decision can do wonders and eliminate uncertainty.
