Overcome doubt and indecision. Perhaps easier said than done, yet we can get a lot further in life if we learn how to accomplish these things. Being confident and actively making decisions–and acting on them–can likewise help us go further toward accomplishing goals in life.
Now onto today’s inspiration for the first day of September; a good one to take into this new month and act on it!
“Whatever the problem or situation,
decision is always better than doubt and indecision.
For example, if you have had a quarrel with someone,
it is much easier to decide to apologize
than it is to stay angry and be filled
with unforgiveness, bitterness, and resentment
while you are waiting for the other person
to apologize to you.
Become a decisive person,
and you will accomplish a lot more with less effort.
Learn from your mistakes,
correct the ones you can
and continue being decisive.
Don’t fall back into a pattern of indecision
just because you are wrong a few times.
Devote a reasonable amount of time
to waiting on God.
Don’t follow fleshly zeal, but do follow your heart.
You will not be the first person to make a mistake,
nor will you be the last.
The fear of failure keeps thousands
trapped in indecision,
which definitely steals joy and complicates life.
Don’t be afraid to make a decision
and follow through with it. Just do it!”
–Joyce Meyer in “New Day New You”
It is weird how often fear interferes with making decisions; yet it’s true that fear, indecisiveness, and negativity are so draining on us, in every aspect of our lives! Learning from mistakes is such a valuable lesson of life!
So what are YOUR thoughts?
Do you struggle to make decisions for fear they might be the wrong ones?
Do you agree there’s value in learning from our mistakes?
