In life, you will have to make numerous decisions, both important and insignificant. However, not everyone is born naturally decisive, some people gradually gain more decisiveness over time.

Many people are hesitant to make decisions or have decided not to, and allow others to make the decisions for them for two reasons.

#1 Fear of loss

When the 'what if...' kicks in, people prefer to keep things as it is, especially if they have projected the future negatively in their minds, thus, status quo out of fear. This happens when you need to make a new decision and walk into uncertainty, or, when you need to make a decision to give up something and walk away from it.

#2 People-pleaser

We are all people-pleasers in some way because dealing with real people, especially in our careers and the business world, diplomatic behaviour is expected. However, for some people, it has become second nature to sugar-coat their words in order to ensure that no one is disappointed by what they say or do, particularly to those in positions of authority and influence.

Whether it's a career, business, investment, relationship, self-development, or any other aspect of life, you don't need a slew of 'blending reasons' to persuade yourself to do or not do something because a decisive person only needs one good reason to take action.

Change probably is difficult and sometimes painful, but it is necessary if you do not want to live a life filled with regrets until the day you die. As such... make a decision based on what is best for you given your circumstances, and at that precise moment, think of nothing else except loving yourself.
