When thinking about your future, it can feel like there are more risks than opportunities. What if you fail? What if you get it wrong? What if you end up with nothing? The uncertainty of what tomorrow may bring can be scary.
To make matters worse, the decisions we make today will likely have a profound influence on the rest of our lives. Fortunately, this is where having a strong support network comes in handy – we all need people who can see things from a different angle and help us figure out what’s best for us given our unique circumstances and personality type.
But it can be difficult to make some choices, even with their support.
How can one possibly know when it is it is the right time to take a risk, when it is best to play it safe, and when it is best to avoid something entirely when there are so many unknowns and so much at stake? So to help you out, in this article I have brought you some common signs to determine if you’re making the right decision or not.
10 Sure Signs You’re Making The Right Decisions
1. You’ Ve Done Your Research
Decisions that you’re confident about are often the ones that you’ve done your research on.
If you’re confident in a choice because you can back it up with evidence and facts, then you’re probably making the best possible choice.
If you decide to make a career change, then you need to know what the benefits are, what the challenges are, and how you will overcome those challenges. You also need to know how you can position it to your friends and family.
- Why do you want to make this change?
- What do you hope to achieve by making this change?
- Do you have the skills and experience needed to succeed in this career?
If you decide to leave a relationship, then you need to know why this relationship isn’t working for you, what you want from a new relationship, and what you can do to get there. You also need to be aware of your own emotional triggers and know how to manage them.
In short, get to know the ins and outs of your decisions before making them or regret later.
2. Feelings Aren’t Clouding Your Judgement
When our emotions are heightened and we are not thinking clearly, there are times when we are prone to making hasty decisions. But you should be aware that certain choices, such as deciding what you want to do with the rest of your life and with whom you want to spend it, are very significant ones.
Therefore, if you are making a decision not on the basis of your feelings but rather on the basis of clarity and a practical mind, then you are making the decision that is truly the right one.
3. You’re Proud of The Choice You’ve Made
You can tell that a decision is right for you when you have a sense of fulfillment and pride after making it. If the decision you’ve made is in line with your values and priorities, then you’ll feel good about it.
You’ll feel proud that you’ve followed through on your promises, kept your promises, and made the right choice for your needs.
If you’ve made the right decision, then you’re likely to feel eager and ready to get going with whatever it is you’ve chosen to do next. You’ll feel passionate and excited to take the next step and see where it leads. So if your gut feelings are right, go on with it. Be proud of it and make other important steps to move forward.
This also applies to those times when you know in your gut that you’re making the wrong decision. Perhaps you’re feeling forced to make a decision that doesn’t sit well with you. The opposite is also true and that’s when you feel anxiety. So, if you feel something similar, do not go that path.
4. It Leaves You with A Sense of Forward Movement
You can tell that a decision is right for you when it leaves you feeling like you’ve taken an important step towards your goals and dreams for the future.
If your decision leaves you feeling like you’re standing still or even going backward, then it’s probably not the right one. If you’ve made the right decision, you should feel like you’ve taken an important step towards your goals, and you should feel excited about what that step could mean for you.
5. There Are No More Unknowns
You can tell that a decision is right for you when you feel that you’ve resolved all the unknowns that came with it. As you make your way through life, you’re bound to encounter some uncertainty.
If you’ve made the right decision, you’ll feel confident that you can overcome any challenges that come your way. You won’t let fear of uncertainty keep you from taking the next step and making the most out of your opportunities. You’re excited about what comes next in life? You don’t really fear the probability of uncertainty? Then yes, you made the right decision.
You can make the right decisions if you’ll evaluate the outcomes of your actions and decisions in life by finding the benefits and drawbacks of your choices. By talking to wise people and by keeping aside your feelings to cloud your decision-making. So make that decision you’re going to make mindfully.
