The next chapter of your life is just one decision away...
Do I leave or do I stay? Do I speak up or do I stay silent? To I apologize, or do I stay angry?
We all make a million choices every day. We choose what we wear, eat, which way to take to work, to get out of bed, what to watch on netflix, to smile or frown.
Those aren't the choices I am talking about.
I am talking about are the big ones. The ones we avoid like the plague. The ones that are going to hurt no matter what we choose.
You know which one I'm talking about. The one that came to your mind just now.
Yeah... That one.
We avoid making THOSE choices.
We would rather kill ourselves in the limbo of indecision because the fear of a solid finality of a choice is too much to handle.
So we avoid. We dream about a life beyond but refuse to make a choice.
The unknown is scary.
Fear of regret is real.
But here's the truth. Those dreams that you have are real. That job that you want exists. That special person who takes your breath away will see you. That ideal body is in your grasp. The ability to stop letting fear win... It all starts with one choice.
That is the key to finding happiness and getting those things you've been dreaming about.
1) Be honest with yourself. I mean really honest with yourself. You will know deep down what you need to do. The first start is admitting and facing how you are really feeling.
2)Now you have to do something about it. You can go on ignoring, numbing, and avoiding but you will stay miserable in limbo. . Get out of that relationship. Admit you have a problem. Start looking for a new job. Ask the girl out. Go to the gym you've been looking at and ask for information. You've got this... I promise.
I know what you're thinking. What if I fail? What if I make the wrong decision?
I challenge you to take a look at what you've been through in your life so far. What obstacles have you faced? What have you over come? Did you make the wrong decision sometimes? Absolutely. Did you eventually become a better or stronger person because of it though? Yes. Making a decision, and maybe it being the wrong one, but learning from it is better than never making any decisions at all.
You can do this. Believe in yourself. You've got this. Now go and do what you need to do.
