If we don´t decide we are out of control. If others decide about us and our life, we are out of control. Decision Making has 1 main character: to gain control over our life and future.
Now let me get back to the title of this Blog-post:
- Are you out of control?
- Do you lack success feelings?
- Is your best friend, your self-confidence, permanently absent?
If this is you, you seem to be no strong decision maker. But don´t get me wrong: we can only decide about things which are “free”! If you try to decide about reactions of a system to which you are linked to, you are powerless. A running system clicks by itself the moment you reach a certain position which is either a “link” or an “intersection”. You move over, up or down. If you are financially dependable of the government or a company you work for, you can only decide on your own about things which aren´t connected to this running system.
You can control YOUR running system. It is YOUR LIFE you can rule and control (at least – try!). The moment you decide about something connected to a stiff implemented system, you need to talk about it and wait for reactions. We can not control a running system with our personell decisions. Fact. It would be like speaking to a machine in hope that it would do what you want it to do – without getting access to its software program. A no-go!
BUT! Yes, there is a huge but. Self-confidence needs to stay with you. You gain and deepen it with your decision making ability. Even if the decision you took doesn´t lead to its aimed result, you know that YOU made the decision to try. Nobody else! It is like holding on to a control feeling which gives us mental stability. It doesn´t deliver a direct success feeling but it will deliver a passive success feeling.
Are you still out of control?
BE A DECISION MAKER. BECOME OUTSTANDING.
