Decisions are everywhere and we mostly pay attention to only those which seem to be “big” or life changing! Do you agree? My advice: do not be scared when taking decisions, small or big, there is no reason to worry! We all learn in life to gain more life experience.
My indirect colleague as a trainer, my passive coach and as a huge fan, I recommend to watch the video from Brendon Burchard who talks about his life changing decisions, here:
Yesterday I gave you the hint to “think it through”, when you are facing a bigger decision with more change than you wish to face. Think it through: sit down and imagine it all happens soon, then check yourself how you feel about it. A smile on your face is always a great, positive indicator! Do you frown or do you smile while thinking it through?
Use your outlook ability: when was the last time you were disciplined enough to get to a big goal? How long did it take? Was it back in school? Or when facing your marriage, looking forward to the wedding day? Did you had to save money before you were able to buy something big? If you remember that you worked hard on something which took some time, you are already 1 step ahead towards the next decision goal! One success leads to the next. That´s called awareness.
How resilient are you? Can you stand a lot? Or are you easily in tears? Make sure you know yourself very well when taking bigger decisions. Mainly, the short rough way to get somewhere fast is only reserved for people who can stand a lot. Those people are often very life experienced. If you are more emotional than others, you may take the longer path which consumes more time but it offers enough space to get used to the change. That´s the secret!
All we can do in life is adding up our decisions, one after the other. Be aware that life plays its own cards towards us and those are sometimes different from what we need in our hands. Never have expectations when rushing into something. You can only expect things when you work hard on something and that sure takes time. Fact.
Be a decision maker – Be outstanding
