"Often it is not making the wrong decision that has the greatest cost, but choosing indecision that does"
Let's get the important info. out of the way:
1.) I know you're jealous of our jumpsuits and utility belts
2.) The wind was 45-50 mph (Not a normal hairstyle for my wife)
3.) We were 440 ft. off the ground
Heights are not my thing. My wife is more of the adrenaline junkie and has been skydiving. While in Sydney, we decided to climb to the summit of the Sydney Harbor Bridge. It's a 3 hour adventure in which you get suited up, trained, and then hike up and down the bridge. The utility belt is what keeps you attached to a cable that extends the length of the bridge. Although we had fears before and during the experience, it turned out to be the highlight of our time in Sydney. It was a once and a lifetime shared experience with my wife that I will never forget.
I just finished reading, "Take the Stairs", which is an amazing book that sheds light on the idea of fear. The author, Rory Vaden, lists fear as one of the 3 main reasons (entitlement, perfectionism, fear) people struggle with inaction or procrastination. He states, action is the cure for fear and that it's okay to be scared, but do it scared. Often it is not making the wrong decision that has the greatest cost, but indecision that does. If I had let my fear of heights get in the way, I would not have experienced what turned out to be a highlight of our trip. So what fear is holding you back? Is it starting that business you've always wanted to start, changing careers, asking someone out on a date (do people still do this), or facing your fear of heights? Just remember, often it is not making the wrong decision that has the greatest cost, but choosing indecision that does!
