Are you in the decision phase or the action phase?
Are you living the life you want?
Are you aware that your life reflects the decisions you have made?
How do you know whether or not you are in the action phase or still in the decision phase?
Interesting, sometimes I believed that I had made the decision and thought that I was applying the actions I needed to make to make my goal happen, however, if things did not work out the way I had planned I then re-evaluated and then made another choice. I was under the impression that I had made my decision. I learned that I hadn’t. The reason I became aware of that is, that I did not reach a conclusion or a goal, I just keep taking action without a dedicated purpose. However, I realised that when I really wanted to get a job done, then it got done. So I starting thinking on that.
In making a decision,you need to be aware of all the facts relating to the decision you wish to make. You also need to be aware of the results you want. I realised that I was trying out options, rather than making decisions. I felt good that I was actually doing something but the reality was that I was not focused and result orientated. What I was really doing was seeing how little I could change to actually get what I wanted. I was deluding myself.
So, how do you know if you have really made a decision, first of all you understand your goal, what it is you really want. You need to make sure that it really is your goal, you need to have an emotional tie to it , you need to know what the consequences are of not achieving your goal, and then you need to make the decision on whether or not it really is important to you. If it is important to you then you will acheive it because you HAVE MADE IT YOURS.
Now it is yours; what do you need to do to make it happen:-
- What it is you have to learn?
- What is you you have to stop doing?
- What simple step can you do to start now?
The simpler you make it the easier you will achieve
It is so easy for us to blame outside factors, it puts the results outside our control and our responsibility. However as we are all aware, there are things we can control, and there are things we cannot control, so we simply work on what we can. You will be amazed at the results you can achieve.
Go Ahead, make a difference to your life and every one you come into contact with. Be the ripple effect.
