Have you ever had the experience where you’ve been unsure about a decision you had to make? I know I certainly have.
Being in a state of indecisiveness can be physically and emotionally exhausting, plus delaying making a decision can impact one’s ability to lead or influence others.
The state of having mixed feelings or contradictory ideas about something or someone is called ambivalence. When we’re in this state, we’re likely to ask ourselves questions such as, “Should I or shouldn’t I?” or “Am I doing the right thing or not?” or have thoughts like, “I hope this works out.”
In his book, Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill wrote, “Analysis of several hundred people who had accumulated fortunes well beyond the million-dollar mark disclosed the fact that every one of them had the habit of reaching decisions promptly and of changing these decisions slowly, if and when they were changed.”
Being able to make decisions fast is like building a muscle. The more you use it, the stronger it gets.
