To become bold, you must make the bold choices…

“When you cannot make up your mind which of two evenly balanced courses of action you should take – choose the bolder.”

W.J. Slim

What is the downside of bolder action? If the choices are genuinely even, then the risk/reward for each should be the same. However, this question’s very nature highlights that a “bolder” decision carries an additional risk or the potential for failure.  

Below is a picture of the many definitions of “bolder” from Many of these definitions resonate and apply within the context of the quote, but perhaps a different question to ask yourself when you can’t make up your mind is, “Which of these choices will inspire my soul to put in the extra work and minimize any risks? Which of these choices will have more meaning to me in five years?” 

Perhaps an even better question is, “Which definition of bold do I want to leverage to define who I am as a person?”
