Our everyday life is somewhat, like walking in a road that has two or more turnings ahead. Your decision determines which one of the roads you are going to follow. And at such points, when you don’t know exactly what is at the end of each road, you’ll probably become more confused.
Since there is no one straight forward way to make decisions, this article will help you learn or improve your decision making skill.
Looking back at the previous illustration: If you find yourself in front of the road that has two or more turnings ahead of you, which one are you going to follow? Undoubtedly, it depends on where you are going. Right? What if: you don’t know where you are going? You’ll definitely have troubles choosing which way to follow. When you know where you are going, but don’t know the exact road that leads to it, you’ll also have troubles choosing which way to follow.
Therefore, before making any decision, remember the above illustration and ask yourself this question: What do I want to achieve? Your answer to this question and the way in which your mind is programmed, determines every decision you would ever want to make in life. On the other hand, for your decision to be the right one, it should be in alignment to your answer to the question: ‘What do I want to achieve?’
Since your mind and what you want to achieve determines your decision making skill, here is a simple formula, which will help you in making right decisions:
- Know why you want to achieve your answer to the question ‘what do I want to achieve?’
- Then, before you take your decision to be the right one, make sure you’ve found the difference between YOU and your MIND. Yes, you should be the one in charge of making decisions, not your mind. And until you find the difference between YOU and your MIND, be sure your decision is prone to flaws.
If you are able to have a clear definition of the two steps above, I bet, your decision will always be the right one, no matter in what area of life you are making the decision.
But, is there really any difference between you and your mind? Yes, there is. Firstly, you possess a mind, and this means that your mind is just a part of you. All the makings, the way your mind thinks, and all the thoughts registered in there, are based on:
- who brought you up
- the environment you found yourself
- the things you do with your time
- and who you look up to
So, how do you reprogram your mind?
Wow! Big Question?
