“Somewhere along the line of development we discover what we really are, and then we make our real decision for which we are responsible. Make that decision primarily for yourself because you can never really live anyone else’s life.”– Eleanor Roosevelt
Decision-making is a distinctly human activity. We all make decisions all the time. Decisions are at the heart of success, and at times there are critical moments when they can be difficult and confusing even distressing.
Decisions are a part of the responsibilities of life. We must face them the same as any other responsibilities.
Good and bad decisions sometimes shape our future for lifetimes to come. What we feel physically and emotionally seem to be the foundation of every decision we make.
As we have to make many decisions in our lifetime, it is best for us to be equipped to make the decisions both for ourselves and also where others are affected.
Aside from making decisions, because of many kinds of uncertainties we also face a problem called decidophobia (proclaimed by Walter Kaufmann at Princeton University in 1973), which is the fear of making the wrong decisions combined with nervous agitation. Moreover, fear of judgement by others is a sure path to unhappiness which is a state of mind.
People sometimes make bad decisions when they are confused or upset and not thinking clearly. Most of the times, because of certain situation in our lives we make bad decisions. This can lead to even more bad decisions.
In making decision, the one thing that we need to remember is, we can always change the outcome of a bad choice by making a better choice to change it especially if we are aware of what we did.
