Indecision Is Fear

Indecision is really fear.

When you can't decide, chances are the reason why you are indecisive is because you're in fear. You're afraid of something.

Let’s explore the fear that is behind your indecision.


How do you work through the fear?

Fear isn't going anywhere. It's a part of who we are as human beings. We are hardwired for it. You must embrace the truth that you can't get rid of fear, you have to learn to work through it. You have to find out what you are afraid of.

Is it fear of failure? Fear of being hurt?

Fear of looking stupid? Fear of ridicule?

Fear of success? Fear of change?

Some questions to ask yourself are:

Who can be a support system for you, someone who can help you explore your fears and help you process this clearly and objectively?

If you were to advise a friend in the same position, what would you say to them?

What do you fear will happen?

Is your fear valid or is coming from old wounds, your shadow, insecurity, from the experiences of the past, etc?

What do you need to feel safe enough to make a decision?

And the most important questions to ask yourself is: What would you do if you weren't afraid?

If you trusted yourself, what would your decision be?

Explore your indecision. Bring  awareness to it. Find out what is really behind your fears, and when you have that deeper awareness, make a choice. Chances are, you will you realize your fears were unfounded. The worst did not happen. But you can only get to the other side of the fear through awareness, and then use that knowledge to move through the fear and make your decision.
