Decisions

” There is a single mental move you can make which is a

millisecond will solve enormous problems for you. It has the potential to improve almost any personal or business situation you will ever encounter. “

Bob Proctor

Decisions or the lack of them are responsible for the making of business success. People who become proficient at making decisions are the people who fall into the six and seven-figure income category, but not just financial success. Our whole lives are dominated daily by the power of making decisions.

Yet, we are never taught this in school, never taught how to make a sound decision. It’s often not even in business training or courses.

When we fail to develop our ability to make a decision, the indecisiveness sets up mental and emotional wars within us that take our focus, time and energy.

Not making a decision puts you in an ambivalent emotional state with a vibration to match. Ambivalence is a killer to any growth or success in any area of your life. Nothing can be gained from ambivalence.

The fundamental universal law states everything is energy and in motion, and we either create or disintegrate. Nothing stands still. Everything is in motion and moving to either create or disintegrate. So when you are in indecision, you are certainly not growing. If not growing, you must be disintegrating, going backwards, losing ground, failing to move forward means you must be going backwards.

So why do so many of us get stopped in our tracks at making a decision? Well, right here we come to the ‘F’ word – Fear—the number one killer of success.

We fear failure, fear of ‘getting it wrong’ fear of what others may say causes us not to make decisions. But you see, people who make decisions quickly and confidently are never worried by failure. They shrug it off and make another decision and get on with it.

Napoleon Hill states – Successful people make decisions fast and change them slowly if they change them at all.

You can decide anything in your life. I will be a global leader in my business, and I will be on stage at the next convention. I am going to 10x my business in the next six months. You can decide anything you want to. Everything in life starts with a decision, it has to, but it must be a committed decision.

A committed decision comes from your heart. The dictionary states, it is the state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc. And once you make that committed decision, all the people, resources, circumstances and opportunities will come to you.

” You have the potential. The resources are available. The

opportunity is there. What has been missing is –

your decision to go for it. “

Price Pritchard

Once you go for it, stay with it, your decision will take you forward. Remember, though, doubts and worries usually come because we can’t see the resources we need to kill our decision. Most people stumble or procrastinate about making decisions because of circumstances. We can’t see the resources, so we hesitate, and indecision becomes the habit. A bad habit.

Napoleon Hill states that “the value of decisions depends upon the courage required to make them” Well, once the decision is made, the next step of courage is the action to follow through.

The most influential and successful people in this world quickly make a decision, sometimes with limited or no information. Why? Because they understand the power of decision making, they know that decision making continues to propel them forward. They don’t wait for all the information. There is never a time when all information is available. Waiting for more of anything is procrastination in making the decision. People who make decisions quickly have one thing in common. They possess confidence. They have a strong self-image, are not afraid to make a mistake, and will fail on the basis they tried. They are aware that failure is not a barrier to success.

So to be an effective decisions maker, you must decide right where you are with whatever you have.
