The Art of Decision Making
Most people don’t know how to make a decision. They ponder thoughts but don’t move ahead due to fear that they will make the wrong decision. This ultimately prevents them from attaining their true desires. It is estimated that more than 95% of people in the world never realize their goals because of their inability to make a decision and progress towards the realization of their dreams through action and belief. They fearfully allow imaginary defeat and criticism to overtake their mind, thereby preventing the ego/mind from learning. They simply stop being teachable. The good news is that this can be avoided.
I will now share with you a formula that I was taught from my mentor. This formula will teach you how to make strong decisions. I will not guarantee that the decisions you make will be perfect, as the outcomes will vary from person to person. I also make no claim that this formula is the best way to make decisions, but I can assure you that when I learned of its magic, it changed my life for the better.
So, without further adieu:
The Decision Making Formula:
Alignment + Time + Investment + Accepting the Outcome = SUCCESS
Let’s break this down even further:
Alignment: Ensuring that the desire you are trying to achieve aligns with your true self.
- Do you believe you can attain this?
- Does this excite you?
- Does this align with your values?
- Are you willing to stay teachable and learn?
- Are you willing to accept the change where necessary?
Time: Allowing the time to learn, and make the changes necessary for attainment of goals. Decide how long you think it will take, and then add fifty percent more time.
Investment: Understanding the investment of money and/or mental capacity for attainment. Determine how much of an investment you will have to make, and then add 50% more.
Accepting the Outcome: Have you addressed the result of failure? Can you live with that outcome? Have you addressed the result of success? How will you feel upon achievement? Would this make you happy?
This simple formula is something that is missing in most people’s lives. They simply don’t take the time to understand the importance of decision-making, and are hypnotized by the Image Makers. As a result, they fall short of their dreams, goals, and desires. Don’t let this happen to you.
You have the ability to attain anything you want in life. There is abundance in every dream—look around and witness this for yourself. Pay attention. The prosperity you seek is within your ability, if only you can learn and change—it is as simple as that. I know because I have experienced this within my own life. I take action on what I was taught, and I continue to learn from my mentors everyday.
I encourage you to practice The Decision Making Formula whenever you are faced with an important decision. This is the #1 tool to crush the Image Makers’ control over your life.
