Hesitation is the mother of all opportunities lost. Achieving success entails that the necessary action is taken in time. Hesitant individuals tend to wait too long before they make a decision and by that time some opportunities for success have passed them by. Decision making is sometimes a split second decision for the good in the long term. However those who suffer from low confidence need time because they do not trust themselves. They are looking for assurances which are not there and by the time they believe they have some assurance they have missed the opportunity. Successful individuals are risk orientated because they know that everything is not black or white. When a good opportunity presents itself and needs a quick calculated decision they are prepared to take it. When successful the hesitant person have lost the opportunity to be successful. Hesitant individuals are looking for assurances before a decision is made and unfortunately future opportunities cannot wait for assurances. That is why anyone with a hesitant attitude should examine their level of confidence and most of the time they will find that their level is low and that they do not always trust their ability to make snappy good decisions. When they have a tendency to look for assurances before making a decision that is a sign that their confidence level needs to be looked at. Good confidence determines a self assured attitude which is supportive of a good self-image and good self-worth. Combine the three and you have an individual with a strong and matured attitude which is a receipt for success. Leaders have the latter qualities embedded in their personalities and that is why they stand out above those who struggle to keep up.
