Are Wrong Choices Really Wrong Choices?

Are Wrong Choices Really Wrong Choices?When faced with decisions and choices, quite often we become stuck out of fear of making the wrong choices. But when it comes down to it, are your wrong choices really wrong choices?

In today’s world, we are offered so many choices that it can be a challenge to ever make the right one. We live in a world that presents us with an overwhelming number of choices, be it in purchasing clothing, where to eat, what to eat, which career to pursue, which school to go to and so on… We have so many choices that much of our time is spent stressed over making the wrong choices.

Are Wrong Choices Really Wrong Choices?

Out of fear of making the wrong choice, we end up suffering with paralysis by analysis and make no choice at all. Being fearful of making the wrong choice or looking back at other choices that were not so great, we then end up hesitating and unable to make any decisions.

Instead of focusing on choices that you may have made in the past that might not have been the best decision at that given time, look at the results of some of those choices. Perhaps some of those bad or wrong choices actually ended up putting you on a different and better path.

If there is anything to be concerned about, it is this… do not be concerned about making the wrong choice – be more concerned about not making any choice or decision at all.

Most likely you are smart enough to avoid making a stupid decision, so don’t worry about it so much; just make a decision and move on.

Even if you make the wrong choice, chances are that it will not be the end of the world. You will learn from your experience, pick up the pieces that need picked up and you will carry on.

There are more people in this world who are stuck and paralyzed by fear than there are those who are living with the fallout of bad decisions. Let me repeat that… there are more people STUCK and afraid to make choices for their lives than there are those who went ahead, made a bad decision, and had to deal with the consequences…

Stop stressing over making the wrong choice if you are faced with options and you cannot make a decision. Fear of making a decision and choosing a direction in which to take action is the number one reason that people are stuck. Period.

For good or bad, when you make a choice you change the future. But if you do not make a decision you will continue to be stuck, so never allow fear or the fear of making the wrong choices to be the reason you are stuck!
