There are times in our life when we have to make tough decisions.  It is usually a decision to start, stop, or change something that you are comfortable with.  Leadership guru Andy Stanley said, "Generally speaking, you are never going to be more than 80% certain when it comes to making tough decisions."  If you are 100% certain then you are not challenging yourself to step outside of your comfort zone.  Growth rarely happens within our comfort zone. 

I don't know what tough decisions you are facing but I do know that it is always great to receive confirmation.  It doesn't happen right away but it is a great feeling when you look back on the past weeks, months, or years and realize that the tough decision you made was certainly the correct one.  Who knows, if you had waited for that 100% confirmation before you made the decision you might still be waiting.  

Sometimes you need to make tough decisions and wait for confirmation rather than the opposite.

Be challenged.  Take a step of faith outside of your comfort zone and experience some new growth.
