Indecisiveness. Information overload. Paralysis by analysis. Do you ever find yourself struggling with any of those things? Do you find yourself seized up, not knowing what to do next?
From time to time in my life, in my ministry, in my online work and in different areas, I’ve found myself in thestate where I come to a dead end and I’m not sure what to do next. The lack of sureness, that lack of assurance really keeps me from making a decision and taken action.
I’ve bumped up against that from time to time in my life and come to the uncomfortable conclusion that the reason this happens to everybody at some point is this crazy thing called fear of failure. It’s actually the fear of failure. The fear, not necessarily of a catastrophic failure, but the fear of making a mistake that keeps us from taking action and doing what we should do next.
