Last week, I was speaking to a group of final-year students who were excited yet nervous about what the future holds in store for them. As I was talking to them, what struck me most was the use of the word “Options”. They were talking about the various options that they had, and they had to choose the best among them. I asked them, “What happens when you are about to choose?”Many shared that they get bogged down by their negative thoughts, beliefs and fear of making the wrong choices. In my experience, one of the most critical ingredients in decision making is “Confidence”. Making big decisions in life and at work can be overwhelming. The higher the confidence, the more accurate the choices.
