Someone once said that there are 7 days in a week and ‘someday’ is not one of the them. I remember before I started this blog, I was so indecisive about starting it. Every time someone asked me to start the blog, I always gave one excuse or the other why I should not start. Excuses like;
‘There are so many blogs on the internet and I don’t want to join the statistics’.
‘I don’t think I can write impactful articles’.
‘I don’t think I can get people to read my blog’.
‘The rigors of writing an article almost everyday might be too much’.
‘I would’t have the time to maintain the blog’ and many more excuses.
It was not until I decided to start that everything I needed either mentally, spiritually, physically and emotionally came into place. Do you lack opportunities? Make some decisions. The moment you definitely decide, all sorts of things happen to help you that never would have otherwise occurred. Indecision will always give birth to excuses.
Have you ever noticed that some of the most miserable people in the world are those who can never make a decision? Being decisive is an absolute key to a successful life. Every accomplishment, great or small, starts with a decision. Nothing great was ever done without a decision. If you commit yourself to being indecisive, what kind of life will you live? The truth is that the most dangerous place to be is in the middle of the road. There is no question that you create opportunities by being decisive.
The book of James says “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” Too many people go through life not knowing what they want, but feeling sure they don’t have it. Remain indecisive and you will never grow. To move from where you are, you must decide where you would rather be.
Indecision is worst than bad decisions because if you make a decision and it turns out to be the wrong decision, you learn from that decision and move on. If on the other hand you are undecided and make no decision, you are on the same spot thinking and analyzing but all said and done, you remain on the same spot and that opportunity to act may never come again.
Remember, there is nothing in the middle of the road but dead rats and pot holes. Stop sitting on the fence, lest you fall and break your back. Make a decision today.
