Are you the type of person who likes to be extremely informed, prepared, cautious, or have a feeling of absolute certainty before making a big life decision? You may view these traits as assets, but they can actually be killing your progress.
Here is the truth; there is no such thing as absolute certainty in life! There are many reasons you may procrastinate taking action, the most obvious being fear. The fear of failure, success, the unknown…the list goes on and on.
But I don’t want to talk about fear today.
There is another very common trait linkined to subconcious procrastination that can not only hold you back from making progress, but could ultimately be paralyzing you from the kind of success you're capable of. Do you know what it is?
The inability to make a clear concise decision,…AND to take immediate action towards it.
Sadly, I see this all the time. When an important decision needs to be made, do you overanalyze it? Do you spend way more time weighing the pros and cons? Do you exhaust your mind and emotions with all of the what if’s?
If you find that you are someone that has a pattern of indecisiveness, no need to worry.You CAN change. Once you become aware of this pattern of behavior, you can start to recognize it in your daily life, and choose to start doing things differently.
Make decisions, and do it quickly. Take immediate action towards achieving the decision made, and you will be amazed at how much time, energy, and stress you will save yourself! If it’s not the right decision, you will know, and every action you take will empower you with more knowledge and growth.
