This is such an intriguing question but worth sharing anyway.
Two years ago, I wanted to pursue a course under Marine Biology which dealt basically about the ocean and all life in it. However, I had to change my mind due to family disagreements and today, I'm currently pursuing a career in health. The reason for my change was my family, but currently, I think I agree with their reasons.

I recently made a major decision regarding my college. At first, I was confident of leaving my parents and going around 1000 kms away from them to pursue Engineering in Computer Science as my major. But then, I changed my mind and decided to go to another college which is just 300 kms away from my home.
I think the environment where I first decided to go, was quite not what I was really looking for. I mean, in my mind I always wanted to be that posh guy who speaks well with everyone. But that's just not who I am.
So I'm going to a better college with people from my culture.

Last month, I decided against a recent addition that I have been struggling with for years. I've made the daring decision to improve myself by working on myself.

I changed my mind about making money. I used to have a view that doing good and giving a lot of liberties especially to families and friends would eventually help me, but it ended up almost ruining me. Now, I separate business from pleasure and give everyone equal respect and attention.

I frequently change my mind a lot, but in the end, I think it could have been the right course of action all along. I no longer want to work and have had a change of heart about my career. I'm going to start a few projects that are important to me and complete them in a way that helps everyone. I do this because I want freedom.

I have always dreamt of moving to my dream city for my career growth. But I changed my mind, and stayed back in my hometown for my aging parents. I know I may have lost best opportunities, but parents ca'nt be back once gone forever.

I most likely do this all of the time. But I have never really thought about it. This mostly happens when someone makes a difference in my life.

It really depends on circumstances surrounding me. I may have had a wrong impression about something. When I eventually find out it’s not as i perceived, I could change my mind about that person or opinion.

I think it was a few months ago when one of my friends was being very mean to me, and I wanted to shut her up right there, but I didn't because I thought it would be too harsh. Now that I think of it, I should have said something, considering she was the one who initiated the fight.

I am in the middle of changing my mind about relocation. I have been strongly against it, feeling depressed that I will have to relocate just when things started to settle down in my current situation. I have been praying for a miracle, a way to overcome a few hardships I am currently experiencing. But I couldn't find a way.

Then one day, out of nowhere, it suddenly occurs to me that relocation can actually solve a few of my problems! The clarity was so vivid that I pause for a moment. Yes it'll involve a lot of planning and efforts, but now I am no more resisting the change. And I am full of hope and happiness. Fingers crossed!

The last time I changed my mind about something noteworthy was right after I graduated college with a Bachelor's degree. As it is the norm, one is always expected to look for a job after graduation. However, I decided to take a different route and started a business. The change in my decision was influenced by several factors. First, I had always had an entrepreneurial spirit and a strong desire for independence. I also believed in the potential success of my business idea, which I had been developing during my time in college.

Additionally, I took into consideration the job market conditions at that time. It seemed like a competitive and uncertain landscape, and I felt that starting my own business would give me more control over my career and financial future. Moreover, I had a supportive network of friends and mentors who encouraged me to pursue this entrepreneurial path.

Ultimately, this significant change in my decision-making process was a result of a combination of personal ambition, belief in my idea, and a pragmatic assessment of the circumstances. It was a challenging journey, but it has also been rewarding as I've seen my business grow and evolve since then.

I recently made a major decision in my life. I decided that a friendship wasn't worth pursuing beacause I was the only one invested in it.

I constantly change my mind about different things. Life is full of choices that are very difficult. I wonder who doesn't get to make tough choices daily.

I changed my mind last two months about going for a second degree. I changed my mind because I realized that I had more important things to focus on for now.

I can say that I usually change my mind on specific things that are not necessarily important.

For things that are really meaningful to me, I stand firm, unless it is necessary to change the situation.

I am an Electronic Engineer and I graduated last December. I thought I could go out into the working world quickly, and even though I left my CV in countless places, still nothing.

So although I still want to pursue my professional career, now I think it is better to do other activities that I can love and from which I can generate money.

I don't want to continue feeling disappointed because a company doesn't call me, because I know it's not my fault, only the best will come when it has to come. Waiting for the right moment is worth it.
