I tend to overthink. I always try to analyze each possible consequence in every decision that I’ll make. It’s like turning every decision in a “what if” statement and seeing each result of every step. I’m not a risk taker, I don’t take chances, and I want a smooth way to solve anything. I know that every decision has its own consequence, but if you know what will you’re going to face then you can brace for impact. Most of the time, my probability works making next steps easier to calculate, experience helps every now and then, building my confidence throughout the process.
However, sometimes there is an unknown variable that will suddenly appear out of nowhere. Fate plays, my probability sucks, and everything will fall apart. That will be a hard-earned lesson as they say. Confidence will decline, but instead of blaming my decision or looking for someone to blame, I can, I must turn that situation in a positive form, like a challenge thus turning it into an encouragement. That will be an ideal goal, it’s hard to do, but that’s the way it is. With that unforeseen situation, I’ll lose trust in my analytical problem-solving skills, but it will add to my bravery to overcome such unforeseen problems in the future.
