The Path Not Taken; Making Conscious Decisions
As the years go by we’re faced with decision after decision; some as small as the vacations we’ll go on, others about the career moves we’ll make, the cities we’ll live in or the relationships we’ll chose to commit to. These fleeting decisions can seem overwhelming for a season, but then they eventually pass and we’re faced with new decisions that seem equally monumental. The singular decisions that we make one at a time, consequently create our entire way of life, but they happen so gradually we may not even notice.
We say that we desire greatness, uniqueness or accomplishment, but then many of us continue to make one small decision after another that maintain the status quo instead of challenging it.
“I always wonder why birds choose to stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on the earth, then I ask myself the same question.” ― Harun Yahya
Have you risked stability for greatness? Have you risked greatness for stability? What does your ‘path not taken’ look like? Realistically, neither ideology is incorrect. The only limiting response is allowing decisions to be made for you instead of taking action. Don’t allow an inability to decide between endless opportunities paralyze you from pursing the one you truly want.
