Why is it hard to make a decision?

We are fearful. Fear clouds our judgement and makes it difficult to make a decision. We can categorize our fears into 6 parts:

Fear of criticism
Fear of loss of love
Fear of poverty
Fear of poor health
Fear of old age
Fear of death

These fears will affect every decision you make if you allow them to. If you fear criticism, you will become a “yes” man, going along with whatever someone else says. If you fear poverty you will never take the risks required to be successful.

Fear is the enemy. Conquer it and your life will become much easier. Decisions will seem simple where they were once complex.

How do you defeat fear? Develop the habit of being courageous. You don’t have to be brave, just act brave when a situation calls for it. If you make acting
courageous a habit, you are courageous.

    I have not ceased being fearful, but I have ceased to let fear control me.
