How do you decide?

Do you make decisions out of fear? I think many of us do that. I know I have taken a job because it paid better than the job I really wanted; I have stayed in a job instead of doing something I loved; I have stayed in a marriage because I didn’t realize I could make it on my own. Think about decisions you have made and look at the alternatives. Have you declined to dance because you were afraid you would look stupid? Have you decided against moving somewhere you really want to live because you’re afraid of leaving your friends?

It’s so easy to ignore choices because we’re afraid of choosing.
