Making the Right Decisions and Living Them
Making a decision is an integral part of our lives. Everyday, from the moment we open our eyes, we all have to make decisions one way or the other: What are we going to eat for breakfast? What are we going to wear to the office? What are we going to do after office hours? What are we going to have for dinner, etc.? Life, therefore, is a continuous decision-making process.
A number of people can easily make decisions. It is natural for them to decide at once without giving it second thoughts. However, there are some people who find it so difficult to arrive to a decision. They spend countless hours and even days thinking of what to do and still could not come up with a final decision.
The biggest problem actually lies after we made a decision: What happens next? Where do we go from there? How are we going to take the consequences of our decisions? Are we really ready to face the challenges that go with our decisions?
Coming up with a decision is daunting; living it makes it more challenging. The following are baby steps to making the right decisions and living them:
By asking yourself these questions, you are becoming wiser, realistic and more mature. At the same time, you are on your way to becoming a “responsible decision-maker.”
Remember, nobody is perfect! We all commit mistakes, one way or the other. Life is a series of mistakes, trials and obstacles. The key here is to accept yourself and the decisions you make. This will provide you with determination and wisdom you need to make the right choices and decisions in life.
So go ahead, make a decision now and stick to it. Life is fun when you make good decisions that could alter your life for the better!
