Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you want to do something, but aren’t sure if it’s the ‘right’ thing to do? It gets worse when parents are not supportive and if friends think you are being stupid. Because then all you have is yourself to be sure. And we all know how tough that is.
But you are not the only one who feels like that. Most people think that being certain will save trouble. But you will not always be sure of what you want to do in life. Whether you want to pursue an MBA or marry your girlfriend right away are decisions that take time and a fair amount of planning.
Read on as we tell you why it’s okay to be ‘unsure’ about major life decisions.
1. There is nothing ‘right’ or ‘wrong.’
When you are planning to quit your job, you wonder if it’s the ‘right’ thing to do. You feel settled in your existing job and it feels correct to keep working there. The thing scaring you is the fear of weather you will be able to adjust in an entirely new environment or not. You will not know if it was the ‘right’ thing to do unless you take the first step.
2. Being sure about things is only an extension of your comfort zone.
Someone rightly said that you are the result of your choices. If you feel sure about taking a decision, it is probably because it is in sync with your current life situation. It is probably the next step in the same direction.
3. Being certain is safe. Being undecided isn’t.
You feel you should find another job before you leave your current one, because you feel taking a break is risky and you are not sure if it will prove to be beneficial for your career. You should take some time off if that’s what you really want. Take a leap of faith and let fate decide the rest.
4. We ignore the potential that uncertainty offers.
Taking a risk can do wonders for your life. But sometimes, we fail to imagine what it would be like to take a chance. You’ll think a million times before you start writing your book. You’ll get lazy. You often rethink the idea of writing a book because you feel you are not a great writer. Sadly, you never think about your book becoming a bestseller.
