Why Decision Making is Important
Eliminating conflict and confusion by striving to be proficient at making decisions in your life is entirely possible. Effective decision-making brings about the creation of order to your mind, and of course, this order results to, and is reflected in, your objective world.
The phrases “What should I do?” and “I don’t know what to do” are reflective of indecisive moments everyone experiences from time to time. These instances of ambivalence are common but can be avoided and controlled. It takes a strong self image, and a high degree of self-esteem to be in control and proficient at making decisions.
Decision makers are great thinkers. This is why you need to give consideration to your thoughts and how they affect the various aspects of your life. Controlling your thoughts will do wonders for how capable you will be at making better decisions.
One point on which almost all great thinkers and achievers are in complete and unanimous agreement is, “we become what we think about.”
Circumstance may be the greatest stumbling block encountered when making important decisions in life. But remember, while your circumstances create detours in your life, you should never allow them to stop you from making important decisions. Protect your dreams and save your goals from being victims of circumstance and it’s consequences.
Napoleon said, “Circumstances, I make them.”
For every situation you feel you can’t do – a vacation you can’t take or goods you can’t buy because of a lack of funds, buckle up and stand strong. MAKE THE DECISION to go on vacation or buy that car you’ve been eyeing. You will find that once the decision has been made, ways and means to fulfill that longing will be found and completed.
Dr. Maslow found in his research that superior performers and great decision makers went hand in hand. They had common qualities that proved invaluable in developing values for themselves that reflected strongly in their lives. They worked in environments they felt were worthwhile and held importance for them. Work and pleasure were not different factors for them, they intertwined and little distinction was found between what is considered work or play. If you enjoy what you do, you will do it well. This he found distinguished people who were self actualized.
