It´s almost the end of 2017 and you made a couple of life changing decisions during this past year. But, with some decisions you were struggling. Actually, you struggled with a few consequences which had to be adjusted to your daily life.
You bought yourself a lifetime dream! As a consequence, the extra monthly payments which escorted you through this year only, cut short your monthly budget. Just for 12 months – but it caused you to adjust 1 or 2 permanent monthly purchases. You had to let go of some luxury extra things in exchange for this lifetime dream.
When you made the decision you knew you had to let go of it for 1 year and you agreed to it – but then, every month you had to actively take care of not going-on as before. Purchases can become habits. You had to change a habit in 2017. Now that you obviously made it, today you think of letting go of those little purchases for good and instead do things differently in 2018.
This change now offers a new gap in your life!
You decided to cut off your main vacation this year and instead go for 4 long-weekend vacations. You were tired of staying in a hotel location for 2 weeks all day and you caught the feeling of not getting to know the world a little better. Variety was missing in your life for a long time and suddenly you discovered what was lacking – you noticed the extra fun when choosing to go to new places and talking with friends and family about it.
But you always had to pack different clothes for different activities and you mentally had to adjust yourself to new trips and different food. Looking back today, those short-trips make you smile!
Whatever you decide in life – when you look back after a while, think about HOW YOU RESPOND to the self chosen consequences.
How did you respond?
How did you respond to spent your monthly budget differently over 1 year?
How disciplined are you?
How strong or weak was your self-communication?
How often did you find yourself on the old path of habits to adjust your actions, again?
Did it make you smile?
Was it frustrating?
How do you think about it NOW?
How did you respond to the different trips all over this past year? You had to travel more often which consumed quite some extra time. During those travels you met new people and you shared a few short conversations with strangers. You came home with some new recipes from different countries and afterwards you envited your friends, cooking for them what you loved most. How did your friends respond to these positive consequences?
How do you respond to the decisions other people make which affect you, at work? How do you respond to the latest decision of your neighbour? How do you respond to sudden disadvantages and advantages of those decisions?
One good thing your decision-making permanently offers is that you get to know yourself better and better. Your responds to decisions deliver a lot of answers – it has an enriching effect because you can adjust yourself to get better and better in life.
Decisions, a great Self-Leadership Tool.
You only move 1 inch or 1 cm ahead in life after you made a new decision. But you move! And that´s the positive clue –
If this is your goal then this is the right website for you to stop-by and come back to –
BE A DECISION MAKER. BECOME OUTSTANDING.
