There are two main reasons why you are unable to take decisions. 1. When there is some feverishness of desire attached to it; or there is some greed. Then you find it difficult to take a decision 2. When there is some fear in you, then also you are not able to take proper decisions. The mind gets stuck in between greed and fear, due to which we remain in confusion. So just get rid of the fear and the greed. That’s it!
