Stop Taking Decisions Only In Your Head

“If there’s even a slight chance of getting something that will make you happy, risk it. Life is too short, and happiness is too rare.” A. R. Lucas.

How many of us actually act by the decisions we take in our head?
I’ve literally lost count of the number of times I quit my job in my head! I take that decision every single day.

You know those late night thoughts that girls have about their boyfriends not being there for them or about their parents being over protective about them? In my case, those late night thoughts revolve around a job I hate.

Every night, before going to bed, I decide that tomorrow would be the day I say that I’m leaving .. But along with that thought, comes a million other voices…

“What’s your plan B?” “How can you leave without having another job waiting for you?” “Who leaves a stable job for passion?” “What if you don’t find what you’re looking for?” “Stay where you are; at least you’re used to it!” “Stop being too emotional, try to be more practical!” “That’s the real world, no one likes their job.”

You see, I believe many of you have thought of quitting a job they hate in order to follow their passion. But how many actually took the risk, closed their ears to almost everyone, and followed their dream?

Nevertheless, let me tell you one thing; a risk not taken is a lost chance.

So stop taking decisions only in your head and take them in your life, stop letting everyone control the path you walk in or choose the life you lead while you sit and watch, stop missing chances and stop wasting your life by living unhappily, because, really, how many chances does life give us anyway?

Once you take a decision in your head, and feel deep down in your heart that this is what you really want, ignore all the voices and go for the only voice that is telling you to follow your dream.  TC mark
