Life is full of choices. We are faced with decisions all the time and it’s never easy. I myself have been feeling at a crossroads lately as I am facing a choice that can change my life drastically based on the direction I choose to go. I am scared of what’s ahead and don't know what to expect. At the end of the day, choices must be made. My fear doesn’t help me in the slightest. At a crossroads, we can either feel paralyzed with fear or inspired about the possibilities, and I hope to achieve the latter. What I need to remember is that crossroads are about change, and I need to learn how to thrive in those times instead of letting my fear paralyze me.
" I want to change this, I want to get through life’s crossroads, to make it a profound moment of growth and self-learning."
It’s difficult to get to that point, I’m not saying otherwise. As we all go through life and face making choices on a daily basis, I know I’m not the only one going through this. I want to change this, I want to get through life’s crossroads, to make it a profound moment of growth and self-learning. So, I want to suggest and present some tips that I’ve received along the way. I want all of you also struggling with this issue to try them with me. Hopefully, they will prove useful and effective. Let’s jump right into the first one.
Don’t rush the process. We live in a world of immediate response and instant satisfaction, everything is quick and instant. However, unlike all of this, our decision making should be a process of much thought and debate. We shouldn’t pressure ourselves to make crossroad choices immediately. We shouldn’t rush through the process. While you gather advice and information, put off a decision for as long as you can. Dream bigger. Don’t settle for normal. When we choose the ordinary, we can expect the normal, unremarkable. We should dream bigger, change what we expect from life and develop the right environment for our growth and success.
