They say that the hardest part of any decision is making it. We make decisions every day, but not all of them are potentially life changing. Sometimes, however, life presents us with tough choices where our decision may determine our future way of life, level of happiness, income, etc.
Making the right choice would always be easier if we could somehow look into the future and observe the consequences of different choices and then choose the option that presents the most attractive future scenario. The problem is that that is not an option, and we are left to trust our intuition, gut feeling and common sense.
I recently read a book, in which the author argued that if you were ever in doubt about whether an argument was logical or based on your gut feeling, then just know that your gut feeling cannot argue against itself. Your mind, on the other hand, can lay out arguments for and against almost any case.
The question is, how do we make the right choice when our gut feeling tells us one thing, but our mind can easily argue against it? How do we shut down this doubt that’s being voiced in our subconscious mind? Sometimes, I guess we just have to trust our innermost voice and take a leap of faith. Is it scary? Oh, you bet! But the hard choices in life are those that hold the potential to change our lives and hopefully for the better.
