If you care for decision making, you sure did read some articles in the past and presently.
You probably know by now that most of the decisions we take are done or regulated by our unconscious level, or they´re channeled through emotional systems in our body. H. G. Häusel from Munich gave some insight lately in a magazine I was reading, while my car got some new headlights (bulbs only).
I was aware that testosterone, the male hormone which helped fighting wild animals ages ago, also stretches the long bones in our body: with more testosterone in the blood, men grow taller (legs, arms) than the others. Testosterone stretches bones, also in female bodies! Fact.
But what´s also new to me is, that testosterone makes it easier to decide! Tall people have less trouble making decisions. It makes sense because it´s originally related to fighting and killing animals, and when fighting or attacking a wild animal you have to make quick, good decisions. This is about the survival!
Testosterone also encourages our self-confidence in critical situations. Well, again think of the wild animals men had to kill for ages to get food for their families. Testosterone sets free adventurousness! Testosterone strengthens the conviction that you “just did it right”. Yes: we´re pre-programmed, at some point. Like it, or not….
Did you know?
Our genes “dictate” which hormones and second messengers will be produced in our body. If you´re familiar with your mental strength which you challenged and experienced yourself, you know you can change things, like your current health level. As a matter of fact: we can produce extra or different hormones when we permanently behave opposite the habits, which needs a strong will and purpose.
Now it´s time to reflect:
whom do you know who´s tall? Is that a typical person which has fun making decisions?
And who else is there who matches this info? Any exception? Of course deciding is not everybody´s darling, no matter how tall or short people are, yes. It takes more than this but it´s the basics for good and confident decision making.
I thought this must be pretty interesting for you! If you like to, please leave a message….
BE A DECISION MAKER. BE OUTSTANDING.
