You are only one decision away from a totally different life.
When I read the above quote I usually wonder which decisions actually made my life different.
I could recall some life changing moments like investing in stocks I really believed through research but no one was recommending, meeting new people, taking few expensive courses to improve my skills and many more.
All those have tremendously shaped who I am today as a person. These were the decisions I took from my gut.
They were all made quickly without thinking for long, in an instant.
Yes, I had doubts but the fear of losing was not enough to discourage me as the hope of winning was even more.
But I made lot of mistakes by not taking any decisions and delaying important decisions.
The problem with delaying important decisions is that you keep overthinking. And overthinking creates more doubts, you create imaginary situations which do not exist, you think about events which haven’t happened yet.
This is the problem with delaying important decisions. You don’t get anywhere.
Here’s what I have learned through my trial and error of making decisions for years.
The only decision you need to take is to make quick decisions.
There have been times when I knew I had to make decisions and I delayed because of fear and other reasons. After a week of delay when I took decision, I experienced unbelievable results in a minute.
I wondered why I didn’t took action earlier.
I then realized that all those days when I didn’t took any action were the days I wasted.
How many times has it happened to you that you didn’t take action? Combine all those days. It might also happen that you have spent half of your life in delaying decisions which you could have taken, failed, learned and taken better decisions again rather than just waiting to make right decisions.
So what’s the solution here.
Just follow the two steps when you need to make any decision.
- Stop thinking.
- Take immediate massive action.
Period. this is the only solution you have.
You can try as many techniques you want but the root cause will be eliminated only when you stop thinking and take immediate action.
Stop waiting for that magic pill. Act now.
