Do You Want to be Successful? Strengthen Your Decision-Making Skills

Life is all about the decisions that we make, whether good or bad. One of the important things about decisions is that no matter what decision we make, we can learn from them. A lot of people approach decisions with fear. Fear of making the wrong decision. Fear of disappointing someone. Fear of responsibility. Fear of the unknown. On our journey through life, decision-making will play a major role in our success. The key is to remove the fear of making decisions and learn to take a leap of faith. In order to THRIVE, life is about making the decision to go after the things that are important to us and to use the fear of the unknown to propel us to success. “Making a big life change is pretty scary. But know what’s scarier? Regret.”

 

Decisions are a mental activity every one of us engages in daily.  From deciding when to wake up, to what to eat, to how to spend our day, to where to spend our money, to whom to spend our time with… decisions are part of our daily life.

 

That doesn’t mean we are good at making decisions.  Many of us make very bad decisions every day and only a few of us make good decisions consistently.  Why is there such disparity in this?  What keeps us from making sound decisions? 

 

Did you know that you could virtually eliminate conflict and confusion by becoming proficient at making decisions?  Once you make a decision, you will find all the people, resources and ideas you need every time.

 

Indecisiveness is a decision to not make a decision.  This is typically fueled by the fear of failure.  Low self-esteem and succumbing to circumstances is why so many people make poor decisions. 

 

If you have an idea, a desire, a wish, a worthy ideal, make the decision to achieve whatever it is you want.  Once you make this decision, the people, resources, and ideas will be attracted to you because your belief in achievement will supersede your fears and circumstances.  Your belief will be the catalyst that changes your behaviors, your actions, and ultimately your results.

 

Keep your focus on your visions, your worthy ideal.  Refuse to worry about how it will happen – know that you are capable of anything you put your mind to and make the decision today to DECIDE WHERE YOU ARE WITH WHATEVER YOU’VE GOT.

 

“Decisions are the hardest thing to make, especially when it is a choice between where you should be and where you want to be”
