There are times when we go through a major round of confusion. Be it a career or getting the best opportunities, it gets difficult for us to decide. Too many choices or a crossroad make things look blurry at that moment and knowing that the consequences of our choices play a huge role in shaping our lives even makes it more difficult. So what should be done in such moments?
There have been many times when I have gone through the same. I didn’t know which path to choose as each looked tempting in its way. During such times I have banked on the 4 following steps and still do:
- Don’t panic – The pressure of choosing the best makes us feel stressed! First, we should relax and not panic. Then we should remind ourselves that we are capable enough to make the right choice. We should give ourselves the confidence. Give yourself that time and boost!
- Prioritize- Only we are aware of our priorities. We should make a list of things and see what is it that we want to achieve next. Once it aligns with the goals then we must measure the pros and cons. It makes things logical and gives us a clear picture. It also makes things easier when you have them chalked out right in front of your eyes.
- No Assumptions – Research each option well and know everything revolving around it. Don’t keep room for assumptions. Let the facts and trajectories speak. Talk to others and take their opinion. It helps to broaden the horizon. Be open to others’ suggestions.
- No Negativity – There should be no room for negativity. Be convinced and confident. Don’t let your overthinking or negative self-talk come in the way. Optimism along with a planned approach will be the key. And, take it easy on yourself! Enjoy some waffles and eat outside to keep your mind healthy! Just let yourself know that you will be able to make things great!
The above-mentioned mantras have helped me to come out of confusion and make the right choice. I hope they help you too! Try them out and see!
