Leadership – Don't Be Crippled With Indecision

Jason Osborn

Visitors: 116

Your ability to lead properly can be crippled by indecision. Not only will it affect the success you have as a leader, but it will negatively affect almost every area of your life. As a leader you have to be able to analyze a situation, think quickly, and make a decision. If you are indecisive you will soon lose the respect of everyone around you.

There is an African proverb that explains how people perceive indecision. It goes like this, ‘Indecision is like a stepchild: if he does not wash his hands, he is called dirty, if he does, he is wasting water. ’ You see, if you are indecisive then people will begin to look at the things you do and not be able to see any good in them.

Another way to look at it is like this. Have you ever had a bad injury to your foot or knee? If you have, you know how much that can cripple your ability to do just about anything. It can even affect the simplest thing like walking. Every step is painful and awkward. It takes you much longer to get to where you are going. Plus people know that you are hurt so they don’t ask you to help them with anything, which means some very good opportunities may pass you by.

If you are indecisive, have you ever asked yourself why you are that way? If you haven’t, think about that for a few seconds. Most of the time people are indecisive because they fear that they may be making the wrong decision. If that is one of the reasons why you find it hard to make decisions, you have to begin to realize that every decision you make in life has some sort of risk involved. You will never be 100% sure that you have made the right decision. The best thing to do is to start trusting yourself. You will be surprised how many times you will be right if you just follow your conscience.
