Let me ask you a simple question. Have you discovered the power of the decision?
Life can be a continuous flow of information. It is coming at you from outside of you and also from within you. Constantly, your mind is bombarded with ideas, concepts, dreams, tasks, things to do, things to be, more, more, more, more. How can you tap into the power of the decision when EVERYTHING seems appealing? or in some cases, EVERYTHING feels like too much work?
Your life today is a product of the sum of your choices and your life tomorrow will follow the same trend. So the question you must answer is this -
Are you satisfied with where you are right now and where you are going?
If Yes, stop reading now and pop off to enjoy your life. If No, let’s explore this further.
The Power of the Decision
So, did you consciously make the decision to keep reading or did you just go with the flow?
Is that an indication of how you live your life? Do you take control of your responses and actively play a part in ensuring you get the things you want or do you wait and hope that things work out fine?
Do you feel that you have little control over the path that fate, life takes you or do you feel you can create the life you desire?
I have lived on both sides of the coin. I have given into my fear of failure and chosen (by default) just to go with the flow, hoping that in doing that the hard choices will be taken away and everything will work out just fine. On the surface of it, life carried on and nothing too bad happened until something really bad did happen. I was in debt way over my head and I felt completely dissatisfied with my life and I could see I was going nowhere I wanted to go and I got there fast.
Then, I made a decision to tap into the power of the decision and NO! Life did not improve immediately but I felt more in control. I felt like I could take this wreck of a life and start to create something beautiful out of it. I chose to get help, I chose to make ‘getting successful results’ more important than pleasing the people around me. I chose to be different from the crowd and go the narrow way and life swiftly changed direction.
And it all starts with making the powerful decision to be in control of the direction you take.
No, it will not always go according to the plan you initially set out but by taking back the power of the decision, you do not have to give in to the lie that your environment controls your future. You take control of the ability to decide your next step based on the result you have obtained.
You realise that you choose your attitude and reaction to anything thrown your way and you can powerfully decide where to go next.
As you start to take advantage of the power of the decision, you realise you are no longer a bystander, you do not have to give into the fear of the unknown. You can excitedly step into the future KNOWING you are actively creating the business and life you want. There is nothing anyone or anything throws at you that you cannot bat back because you are aware and you have made a decision to succeed come what may.
Steps to embracing the power of the decision
Decide what you want your life to look like in 5 years. Write it down!
Look at the options in front of you right now. All of them! Open your mind to the things right in front of you, not just the wished for options.
Ask yourself – Which of these can I take right now to get me to my 5 year vision? Maybe you need to learn a skill, speak to someone about mentorship or coaching, reduce time spent with someone.
Write down one to five choices you can step into right now. Don’t overthink it. You intuitively know but now you are becoming conscious.
Choose ONE, Commit to it totally
Move Forward, Take Action- Do not look for an alternative until you get some results on this choice and then…
Make another choice and move forward some more.
Keep at this forever. Never return to a life of chance.
The power of the Decision makes YOU feel powerful and that is not a feeling you should give away.
