The Importance of Decision Making

It’s the events in life that shape us, our choices that define us.

Our decisions that determine the outcome of our lives. So if you want life to work out the way you want it make sure you keep making decisions, and make these the right ones.

People forget the great power they hold within-that will shape their life and they ignore the importance of decision making. Well don’t be one of those underplaying the importance of being one of life’s decision makers. After all inactivity gets you nowhere, and procrastination is its number one ally.

Our life is shaped by the choices we make. You are the one who chooses how to live your life or create your life’s path.  So make the decisions which will take your life in the direction you require.

 “Success and failure are not overnight experiences. It’s the small decisions along the way that cause people to fail or succeed.” Anthony Robbins

Sometimes we rush into making decisions and regret the choices we make. A hasty decision could lead to long term disappointment. So it’s best you think through everything clearly, but don’t delay to long, because sometimes you’ll go past the point where your decisions matter.

Neil and I have had to make some important decisions recently. I can’t reveal what these are, but what I can say is that are original decision, that at the time we were both in total agreement about, would have been totally disastrous to both our lifestyle and the type of business we are building.

Yet at first the decision seemed right. But we were looking at things in a one dimensional way, not examining things from all directions, and once we did we both realised we were about to make a huge mistake.

Our decision is final is an expression we hear a lot. And the truth is to move forward we have to make decisions and stick with them. But it is of utmost importance to look at each question clearly that is associated with the decision you are about to make and determine categorically whether it is the right one.

Coming up with the right answer can be hard, even uncomfortable, but it is essential.  What I was reminded by this situation was that you should frequently be visualizing the life you really want. What does it look like, what does it feel like. This will help you to make decisions in align with your dreams.

We should stop and examine the choices we make, evaluating them to determine they fit with our chosen path.

When Rosa Parks remained in her seat and said, “No, I will not go to the back of the bus look at how it changed the world. That is how important some of the decisions you make will be. So make wise choices.

 “In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die.  And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.”  ~Eleanor Roosevelt
