You are the sum of all your decisions. There is no one in this world that can change your life unless you allow it. The choice to live a great life lies in your hands and you need to take this process seriously. The choices you make, make your life, so make a different choice if you want different results.
There are those people who blame others for the different experiences that have been in life and how they turned out. But you know, there is no person who has the power to affect your life apart from you.
That is why it is said; you may have different circumstances but it is your attitude towards those circumstances that will affect your life.
Making healthy choices is important if you want to achieve success.
“You are not stuck where you are unless you decide to be.” -Wayne Dyer
1. Know what you want to do
When you have a vision for your life, it will be easy for you to make decisions if you know what it is that you working to achieve.
What is it that you want to decide on? This will help you to focus your efforts on what you need to decide on and not the unrelated factors. What is your motivation? You need to determine the reason why you have to make that decision.
For example; if you want to buy a new car, you need to ask; are you buying it because you want to or because you want to impress people? Do you have the capacity to buy the new car? These questions will help you narrow down the choices.
2. Pay attention to your emotions
The emotions that you have will have an impact on your decisions. You will experience both positive and negative emotions which are not a bad thing. What you need to decide not let the emotions affect you.
If you are aware of your emotions, it will be easy for you to calm yourself down before they get out of hand.
3. Get information, but don’t overload
It is important for you to make informed decisions. However, you need to refrain for gathering too much information.
It may cloud your judgment. Prioritize on the information that you get and eliminate the information that you don’t need.
If you have been thinking of a decision for a long period of time, you need to take some time off to clear off your mind. This will help you to get a new perspective on things.
