make a decision

Do you want to know the secret for being in control of your life? Make a decision. Never underestimate the impact that a single decision can make.

Everything that has happened in your life, to date, has started with a decision. Many people become so fearful of making a mistake, that they end up making a bad decision, or worse, no decision at all.

The beauty of life is that you ALWAYS have options. When you find the motivation to make growth-based decisions, you step into the driver’s seat of your life.

In the words of Paulo Coelho, “When someone makes a decision he is really diving into a strong current that will carry him to places that he had never dreamed of when he first made the decision.” Are you ready to make a decision?

A decision can go one of two ways – towards a life of happiness or towards a life of suffering. If you want to experience the former, it is important that you make the right decision at the right time.

Unfortunately, from an evolutionary perspective, our brains are not designed to make rational decisions.

When neuroscientists examined brain activity during a simple decision-making experiment, they noticed people had often decided on a course of action ten seconds before they were consciously aware of having made any decision at all.

The goods news is that we are all capable of change, and it all starts with our mindset.

In his book Get Smart!: How to Think and Act Like the Most Successful and Highest-Paid People in Every Field, author Brian Tracy presents ten different ways of thinking that enable better decision making, one of which includes thinking about the long-term consequences of your decision.

Instead of being plagued by the desire for instant gratification, become more aware of how your actions today will impact your future. The ability to delay gratification is a core principle of success.

The next time you are about to make an instinctual decision, without thinking it through, sit back and ask yourself, “What will be the long-term consequences of the action that I am about to take?”

If you want to solve difficult problems in life, you will need to make difficult decisions. Anything that you desire in life requires a lot of hard work, sacrifice, time, commitment, and energy.

It’s supposed to be hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. The master knows that challenges are the norm. When things get tough in life, they keep pushing forward.

They make a decision. They decide to take ownership for their mistakes and don’t let their lows dictate their future.

Research by Carol Dweck suggests that the top trait that you will need in order to make a decision into a long-term success is the ability to convert life’s setbacks into future successes.

If you are going through a hard time in your life right now, know that, this too shall pass. 

Trust the process of life and learn how to relinquish control. The only thing that you have control over is your reactions to what life throws at you.

The small decisions that we make on a daily basis have the power to dictate the direction that our lives will take. In the words of Tony Robbins, “It’s not what you do once in a while that shapes your life. It’s what you do consistently.”

Make a decision, but choose it wisely.
