Whats had the biggest impact on your life? Your parents, partner, career or education? Your health, social status or background? And whats it been for the people around you? The people you work with, your friends, those you see in the media? Whats had the biggest influence in all their lives?
It all comes down to one thing. Powerful Decisions.
All great achievements can be traced back to a single Powerful Decision. When you make a decision it gives you power and control. It puts you in charge. It makes you responsible. And thats why many people dont like to make decisions. They want the control and power but theyre scared of the responsibility. Theyre scared they may not make the right decisions and scared they might get blamed if things go wrong.
In reality, those who do make Powerful Decisions, and they are the true leaders in life, tend to get the greatest rewards. Rewards such as money, promotion, respect, admiration, personal satisfaction or some other compensation.
And those that dont make decisions? Well they tend to get stuck in the middle management trap, where people simply stop making real decisions and their career, and their life, just grinds to a halt.
Which group feels better for you?
Youre where you are today because of the Powerful Decisions youve made. Each major milestone in your life has been accompanied by a Powerful Decision. As you look back, youll see how your Powerful Decisions stand out as markers in your life. Theyre the points of change. The forks in the road that took you along the path to where you are today.
As we grow in our lives, relationships and careers, the decisions we have to make can get harder. They can have more impact and greater consequences. And some people find that hard to handle. So they stop making decisions. Can you see where that might have happened in your life? Think back to a time when you last made a really Powerful Decision. Remember how it felt. And consider how long its been since that last one.
Unfortunately, the more you delay a Powerful Decision the more chance it will get made for you. And its often not in your favour. Thats why you want to put yourself back in control and start making your own Powerful Decisions again.
Once you make a Powerful Decision youll find your awareness begins to open up and you start to see things that youve never noticed before. Opportunities and people that may have been there all along, now become apparent to you. Thats the strength of Powerful Decisions.
So is your life filled with Vague Intentions or are you making Powerful Decisions? What one Powerful Decision do you need to make today? It may be in your career, your relationship or somewhere else in your life? What Powerful Decision have you been putting off?
Make your own Powerful Decision today, and watch how your life immediately begins to change. And of course, once youve made your decision theres just one more thing to do. Take Action.
