Don’t Stress Over Making the Wrong Choice

In today’s world, we are offered so many choices that it can be a challenge to ever make the right one. I do not drink coffee and thank goodness because I have seen the coffee menu at Starbucks and I would be there all day trying to make a decision.

The truth is that we live in a world that presents us with a myriad 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 having stress over making the wrong choice.

To make matters worse, we end up with paralysis by analysis and make no choice at all. Fearful of making the wrong choice or looking back at other choices that were not so great, we end up hesitating and unable to make any decisions.

If there is anything to be concerned about, it is this… be less concerned about making the wrong choice and more concerned about not making any at all. Trust me, you are smart enough to avoid making a stupid decision, so don’t worry about that. Just make a decision and move on.

And if you make the wrong one, it will not be the end of the world. You will learn from your experience, pick up the pieces that you need to pick up and carry on.

The reality is that 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…

Don’t stress over making the wrong choice. If you do you will never get anything done, ever.

What about you? Do you ever worry so much about making the wrong decision that it stops you from making any choice at all?
