Making a decision to go in one direction or the other allows you to focus your energy and your effort. This gives you a clear advantage over someone who doesn’t know what they are going to do…or when!
As for commitment, m husband is Fixed – Taurus and Scorpio. I am Mutable. The Libra waffling combined with the changeability can be a deficit. But once something I’ve made a decision and committed to it, the high side of who I am can channeled towards achievement.
I learned this when some years ago, my husband decided we would stay in the house where we live until my son graduated high school. This was epic at the time. I had been thinking about going or staying, selling and buying, selling and renting, etc. for years! Jeez, what a relief it was to have this nailed down.
Recently, I got control of this blog, which I have never had before. It’s hard to plan when you don’t own your domain name and can’t access the back end of your site, even though it has your name on it (twice) and you’ve worked on it, diligently, for years. But I do own my blog now and recently I decided to commit to maintaining it for the next 12 years. Imagine that.
Knowing I’m going to work here for 12 years, I decided I should make more comfortable so I hired people to redesign the site. I have invested heavily on all levels, because I have a reason to! I know that I am putting time and energy and money into something I am going to keep for awhile.
I hope you think about this, deeply. Because it goes for relationships as well. I invest heavily in my family, and in my friends, because guess what? I’m keeping them too.
Have you benefited via making a commitment? Are you losing due to waffling?
