Everyone reaches a junction in their path of life where the four way intersection seems to sometimes cause more confusion in a decision making process. Think about it as a road, except on this road there are no traffic lights, only stop signs. You are sitting there and you have to decide if you should turn right, turn left, go straight, or U-turn to go back in the direction from where you just came. You can’t sit there for any prolonged period of time because you will inevitably cause a back up in traffic that will come behind you. So what do you do?
When you are not sure where you are going, you must still make a choice to go one way or the other – and hope that you will move in the correct direction to your destination. There is not a lot of room for what ifs which could potentially keep you from heading toward something great. “What if I make the wrong turn?” Well, I’m here to ask, “What if you make the right one?”
Traveling along uncertain paths is not necessarily a bad thing. There are things you will see along the way that perhaps you’ve never seen before. There are people you may encounter who may end up being your greatest resource for chances not yet presented. There are other stops you may have to make to re-direct, but you will eventually get to where you wanted to go.
The road of indecisiveness is paved with untapped opportunities. But you’ll never have the full experience of any of them if you just sit there at the intersection of decision! Travel new roads and give your potential, which is likely stagnated, a chance to expand. Believe in yourself! Make a move!
