On The Fence
It’s really none of my business
I don’t really care that much about your choice
Is this the right thing
I am actually confused
Hold on, this seems strange
If I had known!
Did you know that “on the fence” is an idiomatic expression that connotes “Indecision” and it can really paralyze situations just like the illustration above? According to dictionary.com, Indecision is the inability to make a decision quickly or a wavering between two or more possible courses of action.
You don’t have to feel bad about indecision because even the great leaders suffer from indecision. The best is distinguished from the rest because of the ability of the former to get at the fundamental cause of their mental hindrance and then place dynamite to it. In other way too, most decisions are regrettable. This thought of regret is an attempt to deny our freedom from ourselves. There’s a room or even more rooms for further decision making in order to improve the situation.
In most scenarios, people who struggle with indecision have it rough because it is an action issue. The person held by it can look contemplative when, in reality, he is immobilized by fear. Major decisions are often referred to as “reaching a crossroads in one’s life,” which is a moving analogy.
Most of us will, at one point, find ourselves on the merry-go-round of indecision.
If you are going to make a decision, then make it 100 percent.
According to Michael H. “indecision is the enemy of progress. Not saying yes to one possibility is saying no to them all.” Of what use will it be when your decision is to stay indecisive? Did you say there are too many choices to choose from? I guess I didn’t hear you right because by now you should know that “more is lost in indecision than in the the wrong decision.” And if the reversed is your case, don’t worry, it doesn’t matter which side of the fence you get off sometimes. Just decide!!
“Life is so brief and time is a thief when you are undecided.” Rod Stewart
Some Ways To Help You Pullout From Indecision
• Trust your instinct: If you don’t make the right decision, you can make the decision right.
• Don’t always appear smart: The smarter you are, the more likely your indecision is born of anxiety.
• Accept analysis limits: Avoid paralysis by analysis and act, then move on.
• Prioritize your demands and fears: Ignore whatever distraction and focus on what is at stake
There’s always a better one among two bales of hay that appear attractive, remember that either one is better than starvation. Stop saying your decisions don’t count. You will regret indecision more than decision. Decide wholeheartedly and face the consequences. Get off the merry-go-round and take a decision.
Refuse to settle for a life that’s comfortably uncomfortably. It’s your moment of breaking free. Decision making is a skill. So when you make a choice, your decisive gut gets stronger and become confident. The world needs your input too that will bring about progress, peace and love. Stop judging. Do what’s right for you and ask for guidance. Don’t let indecision hold you back. Take a risk. Just do it.
“The souls of men of undecided and feeble purpose are the graveyards of good intentions.” John Foster
Life is too short to live in regret. Make full use of your inner strength. Believe in yourself. Take that bold step that leads to dream fulfilment and don’t be on the side of the oppressor. In that roundabout, it’s time to decide which way to head to. Fear not!
