The Power of Words Series: Decisions
Decision is defined as: a determination arrived at after consideration, a conclusion, to make a final choice about what to do,to select as a course of action, to infer on the basis of evidence, to bring to a definitive end, and to induce to come to a choice.
Of course, while making a decision is very common place in our day-to-day living, therefore, you may wonder why it would be considered to be such a powerful word. Decisions hold the key to your future in both business and life. Your ability to just make a decision when faced with many alternatives is key to making progress in your life in all areas. Life is made up of choices. Wayne Dyer says, “Our lives are the sum total of the choices we have made.”. For the most part, this is true (except for things that may have happened when we were young and we had no control), and the choices that we make or don’t make dictate where we will be in the days ahead of us. We have the power to change the direction of our lives with one decision at a time. If you don’t like the way things are going in your life, make a decision for a change.
In an old medical alert commercial, there is a scene where an elderly lady is lying on the floor yelling, “Help! I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!”. She had a physical limitation that prevented her from getting off of the floor. In our businesses and in life, there are challenges that arise that make us stumble and fall, but unlike the elderly lady lying on the floor you do have the ability to get up. You can make a decision to get up and start again! It does not matter what has happened in your business or life, who is at fault, or any other perceived limitation, if you have breath in your body, it is time that you make the decision to get up and move forward. Many people have gone through and overcome great hardship and still kept pressing through to achieve their purpose and destiny. You too have what it takes to fulfill your purpose and destiny in spite of the adversity, if you just make the decision to get back up again.
Overtime, various scholars have developed models for effective decision making. In this article, the focus is not on the process, but on encouraging you to MAKE A DECISION to GET RESULTS IN YOUR LIFE! If you do not make a decision you have made a decision to stay stuck in the state, the position and condition you are currently in. It is easier to stare at your condition and complain about it, than it is to make a decision to get up and DO something about it by MAKING A DECISION!
