There is an old Swahili proverb that states, ‘If you destroy a bridge, be sure you can swim.”
Last week a young man I have been working with for some time asked me what the best decision was I have ever made. The question stunned me because I have never been the type of person who quantifies and qualifies every decision I make. In fact, I still do not know how to answer the question.
There are times when we know answers intuitively and decide quickly. Then there are times when we struggle with making a decision for hours, or even days. Especially if it is at a pivotal juncture in our lives.
The best answer I could give the young man is the best answer I have for myself. Evaluate and trust. Neither of those is simple, but both are rewarding.
Opportunities to make decisions only come to us when we are innately worthy to receive them. Worthiness has to be perceived internally. If it is not perceived internally then fear and anxiousness will stymie the decision-making process.
The best measure one’s decision is whether there are any regrets. Success is its own reward! Trust is its own reward! Both can only be measured by you.
