Decision-making is a choice


Decisions are a mental activity every one of us engages in on a daily basis.  From deciding when to wake up, to what to wear, to what to eat, to how to spend our day, to where to spend our money, to whom to spend our time with... decisions are part of our daily life. According to INC Magazine, it's estimated that the average adult makes more than 35,000 decisions per day. How do we survive without burnout!


We make decisions in divers manner depending on our personality types. According to the DISC personality profiles, a D -Types are very decisive, I-Types are spontaneous in making decisions, S-types make decisions by conferring with others and the C-Types prefer to be very methodical in their decision-making process.


That doesn’t mean we are good at making decisions.  Many of us make very bad decisions every day and only a few of us make good decisions consistently.  Why is there such disparity in this?  What keeps us from making sound decisions? 


Did you know that you could virtually eliminate conflict and confusion by becoming proficient at making decisions?  Once you make a decision, you will find all the people, resources and ideas you need every time.


Indecisiveness is a decision to not make a decision.  This is typically fueled by the fear of failure.  Low self esteem and succumbing to circumstances is why so many people make poor decisions. 


If you have an idea, a desire, a wish, a worthy ideal, make the decision to achieve whatever it is you want.  Once you make this decision, the people, resources, and ideas will be attracted to you because your belief in achievement will supersede your fears and circumstances.  Your belief will be the catalyst that changes your behaviors, your actions, and ultimately your results.


Keep your focus on your visions, your worthy ideal.  Refuse to worry about how it will happen - know that you are capable of anything you put your mind to and make the decision today to DECIDE WHERE YOU ARE WITH WHATEVER YOU’VE GOT.
