Indecision may be worse than a bad decision.
The tarot card of the day is the Two of Wands in Reverse.
The Two of Wands shows a man in a red robe and cap standing in front of a castle. He is holding a small globe while looking stern and determined. It is as if the universe is saying, "The world is in your hands, now use it."
The man stands within the castle's confines, suggesting that while he plans to take advantage of this opportunity, he hasn't yet left his comfort zone. His hand rests on an upturned wand, and a second one is affixed to the side of the castle, a further indication that he is still not quite ready to venture outside.
Meanwhile, the fertile land behind him looks like a promising sign – he has the resources needed to succeed if he decides to make a move.
Looking at the Two of Wands, you immediately know this man has a big decision. This symbolizes our ability to make choices in life, which will either lead us down a path of success or failure. It can also represent the struggle between what you want and what you need.
The Pressure of Making a Choice
First, let's talk about why people get stuck with indecision. We often feel paralyzed when we don't know where we should begin.
In addition, we tend to avoid making hard decisions because they require effort and energy. Then, to make things worse, we often regret it later when we choose something.
To overcome these obstacles, we can learn from people who are excellent decision-makers. Take doctors and nurses, for example. In an urgent care situation, they must make quick decisions without much time for reflection.
Now imagine you are in their position. Can you decide on the patient who needs urgent care? Will you crumble under pressure, or will you rise above it?
If you can make a good decision, you should be proud of yourself. You've demonstrated strength and courage. However, if you feel stuck when making decisions, then you might want to work on improving your decision-making skills.
Imagine if you were the one needing urgent care. You would be forced to decide whether or not to do something.
Respect the Choices You Make for Yourself
You do not want to criticize yourself for indecisiveness because it will not help you find clarity about what to do next. Instead, it would be better if you understood what each choice would mean.
If you push yourself too hard to make a decision, you might miss out on opportunities that could change the course of events.
It will help if you keep meditating, watching the current situation, and observing the forces at play. Eventually, you will have enough information about the issue to know whether or not you want to proceed.
As soon as you feel confident about your answer, the decision-making process will end, and you will have no further doubts about what to do next, regardless of how long it takes.
You Never Lose – You either Win or Learn
It is only human to experience moments when we feel overwhelmed by the complexity of situations. But there is always a way forward. Don't give up!
The first step is to admit you don't know what to do. Then try to figure out your emotions and feelings. Are you afraid? Are you worried about the consequences of your actions? Or maybe you are unsure of what to do next.
Always remember that everyone makes bad decisions sometimes. However, making poor choices can result in valuable lessons. So, instead of being discouraged by your mistakes, use them as an opportunity to grow.
The next time you have a decision, try asking yourself this question: What would I do if my situation were ideal? This question will give you an idea of what steps you should take to achieve your goal. It might turn out to be the best choice you've ever made.
