Have you ever made the decision to do something, but later wondered if you’d done the right thing?
Of course you have.
Happens to everybody.
Second-guessing is common after making a big purchase.
This is called buyer’s remorse, and it’s fairly harmless.
After all, most purchases are guaranteed in some way.
But second-guessing is also common when charting a new course for your life.
For example, switching careers, taking a new job, going back to school, or even setting out to master a new skill.
- Am I cut out for this?
- Did I make the right decision?
- Do I have what it takes to succeed?
The doubts come fast and furious.
They ask friends and family for advice and find themselves even more confused – and with less clarity – than before.
Fish or cut bait.
You can’t do something half-heartedly and expect any kind of real success.
So decide whether you will or you won’t.
And if you will…
…then be totally focused, totally committed.
Act boldly with single-minded purpose.
As the philosopher Johann Wolfgang von Goethe rightly noted:
“Seize this very minute; what you can do, or dream, begin it; Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.“ tweet
