Indecision Is Death
Total Articles: 1
I read Napoleon Hill’s “Outwitting the Devil” and really resonated with the story. I have a lot to say about the book, but I will stick to the singular point: Indecision is death.
Napoleon Hill was struggling. He didn’t know what to do or what his next step would be. On a walk one night, he received information about what he should do next, from his other self (or his higher-self). He made a decision to follow the guidance of his higher-self and it led to amazing things happening in his life!
Back to my decision: I was on the fence about leaving my 9-5 job. I was dealing with non-stop migraines since November 2016 and I had been on short term disability. During that time, our nanny quit and my autistic son started acting worse than ever before. I knew the doctor would not sign any more paperwork unless I agreed to Botox, which intuitively I knew was not a healthy option for me.
So I spoke to coaches and mentors, all of whom encouraged me to make a decision either way and stick with it. I even had a conversation with an amazing person who said, “Logic and responsibility can trick us sometimes.” He told me not to go backwards. So I made the decision to quit.
For the next couple weeks, I started to wonder if I was making the right decision (you know, ego tries to keep you safe with the known instead of the grander possibility of the unknown). So I did what anyone who had made a decision and didn’t want to waffle back and forth about it would do: I hit send on my resignation letter.
I felt an immediate relief. The stomach ache that had plagued me for weeks was gone. I was able to sleep through the night again. I even stopped grinding my teeth.
It didn’t matter if I had enough money in the bank, if everything was lined up, I had to make a decision and commit to it. Because when you commit, the Universe shows up to support you. Or rather, “Leap and the net will appear.”
Don’t get stuck in the cycle of, “Let me think about it a little longer.” You will never stop thinking! Make a decision, get out of that discomfort! Then you can step back and ask, “Does this decision serve me?” When asking that question, you haven’t let the opportunity pass you by. You can always change your mind later, if things no longer serve you.
Here’s another piece of advice I learned: Define failure for yourself.
What is failure to you? Now don’t give up on that thing you said yes to until you actually “fail” at it. And I guarantee, you won’t fail. But until you’ve reached the point of failure, you don’t know if you don’t try AND you will regret 100% of the shots you don’t take!
Make a decision. Try something new. Give yourself a chance at success.
