Are you one of those people who make a decision after much deliberation? Then, immediately after making it, you start to second guess yourself?
If You Drive Yourself Crazy with Over Analysis….
Then yup, you are a second guesser!! I have family and friends who are second guessers. I can be one sometimes. Though I must say I’ve gotten pretty decisive. I wasn’t always this way. It took me time.
If you aren’t one, then I wanted to share some tips on how you could stop questioning your decisions.
When you make a decision, you have to trust yourself. No one makes a decision that isn’t good deliberately. You make a decision based on the circumstances, facts at hand, and your gut feeling at the time. Trust that it is for your higher good.
Go With the Flow
Every moment of the day, we are making decisions. From deciding what to eat for lunch to making a turn to deciding what to say to your boss. Those are all decisions, no matter how big or small. Just go with the flow. Do your best and move on.
With due time, you may realize you could have made better decisions. And then your mind kicks into overdrive. You whip yourself over what you could or should have done. Well, instead of beating yourself up, become comfortable with your mistakes. They open new paths and teach you a lot.
Relax and Be Kind to Yourself!
Take a deep breathe and be gentle with yourself. Make a decision and let go.
Opportunity for Growth
The decisions you make are opportunities for growth. So whether they turn out the way you expected or not doesn’t matter. They will teach you invaluable lessons about yourself.
