We’ve all been in a situation inline where we are facing multiple choices and need to pick the right one. We initially feel confident about our first choice, but doubt creeps in. More often than not, we change our direction only to find out that the first option was the correct one. This applies to many areas of life in which we let our insecurities creep in and throw us off.
It’s human for us to doubt ourselves, especially when dealing with big decisions. Trust in your first choice, because more often than not, that gut feeling is God leading you.
Though you may be an overall secure person, the pressure to make the right decision and second guessing yourself stems from insecurity in your decision making ability. Making a long-term choice in a quick manner brings stress and anxiety to our minds, but when we change the way we think we can manage this better.
Take time to sit down with yourself and reflect. No matter where you are in this moment of your life, voice to yourself what you hope to plan for yourself. Some realizations will be new, some will be what we’ve wanted all along. Then, start basing your decisions on the basis of bettering yourself, and be consistent with it,
Once you’re confident in making decisions that are made in order to help you grow from this moment, you’ll feel those insecurities wither away. Trust in God’s perfect plan for your life, and don’t let worldly doubts overshadow that.
Stay true to yourself. It always has been and will always be as simple as that. Take your past mistakes, analyze where you went wrong, take that lesson and grow. Failure to check ourselves leads to inconsistency and repeated history. Insecurity builds as our decisions are always the wrong answer to the problem. Cycles are hard to break, especially one’s we’ve molded ourselves into hoping for an ideal outcome. Once a situation has proved it no longer serves you fruitfully, let it go. Break that cycle and start anew, trusting yourself to do so.
In facing uncertainty, be confident in the decision that comes to you. Be reasonable in your consideration and give yourself time to think. Don’t spend your life guessing, you have more power than you think.
Spend time this week reflecting; get to know yourself again and move with confidence always.
