10 Making The Right Decision Quotes

You see, making the right decision is 50% of the solution. The other 50% is commitment. You have to commit to your decision to change.
“When someone makes a decision, he is really diving into a strong current that will carry him to places he had never dreamed of when he first made the decision.”
~ Paulo Coelho
“We are the creative force of our life, and through our own decisions rather than our conditions, if we carefully learn to do things, we can accomplish those goals.”
~ Stephen Covey
Back in the 1930s when Hill was writing his book, a study was undertaken with 25,000 men and women who had experienced failure. They came up with a list of 30 major causes of failure. Lack of decision was near the head of the list. Conversely, each of several hundred people who had accumulated fortunes had the habit of reaching decisions promptly. Also, successful people would take their time in changing their decision.
Opinions Of Others
The majority of people who fail are easily influenced by the opinion of others. They permit the media and other people to do their thinking for them. Opinions are the most abundant thing on earth. Everyone has one and they can be as different as night and day. You will not succeed if you take into account the opinion of others.
“Stay committed to your decisions but stay flexible in your approach.”
~ Tony Robbins
“Unsuccessful people make decisions based on their current situation; successful people make decisions based on where they want to be.”
Your mind is yours and only yours, reach your own decisions. Keep them to yourself and discuss them with only like-minded individuals, such as your Master Mind group. When researching to gather information for your decision do so without disclosing your purpose.
How Do You Know You Made The Right Decision
How do you know when the decision you made is the right decision? That is a hard question to answer because you won’t know the answer until you have succeeded or failed. You have to listen to those inner voices. If your decision makes you feel happy and it is the right decision. On the other hand, if you feel cautious or negative you should reconsider your decision.
“Always go with the choice that scares you the most, because that’s the one that is going to help you grow.”
~ Caroline Myss
“In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take and the decisions we waited to make.”
In most cases, making the right decision is not that difficult. Deciding to solve a challenge in your life is personal. These are decisions for your self-improvement. A personal decision affects you and the people close to you. Some decisions cannot only affect the person making the decision but also have an impact on many others.
Throughout history, people have been tasked with making decisions that changed history. Abraham Lincoln made the decision to issue the Proclamation of Emancipation. General Dwight Eisenhower made the decision to launch the D-Day invasion. Last July I wrote an article about 56 men who made one of the greatest decisions of all time. They signed the Declaration of Independence knowing that it could potentially cost them their lives.
“You cannot make progress without making decisions.”
~ Jim Rohn
“Unnecessary fear of a bad decision is a major stumbling block to good decisions.”
~ Jun Camp

Making the right decision to improve your income or help comes with a price. You never get anything without giving up something.

I sometimes let the results of sports teams I follow drive my motivation to do something. When a team I support loses a game it comes with a bit of pain. This is both something I cannot control, and in no way relates to my writing and music projects which are the two big things I’m working on at the moment.
Thank you for the reminder to examine perspective, and make the right decision, especially if it is difficult to make!
