How to Know If You're Making Good Decisions
Every decision you’ll make, you’ll have some reaction to it. Do a self-analysis with the points below to see if the decision you’re making is good or could be improved.
Does the decision make you:
Excited about the future
A little bit scared but positive about what is coming
Big, confident, and self-sufficient
Lessens pain of the past, diminishes it, or make goes away completely
Smile and not freak out even if your bank account is negative 50 bucks
When you make a good decision, it will carry you on its wings, taking you away from your present situation.
We hold on to our fears, frustrations, and anger when we don’t know how to handle it or function without it. When we make a good decision, we let go of the pain of the past and let it be what it is, a memory.
The right decisions I’ve made reinforced my belief in myself. A lot of times I’ve confused anticipation and excitement of the unknown for fear. The best decision you make should make you feel like you’re moving forward, getting closer to that ultimate version while also shaking off any regret/trouble from the past pain.
Good decisions help you bridge the gap between your past and the future that you want. They help you stand outside of yourself: less sensitive, more forgiving and embracing, needing less confirmation from others.
Turning off the negative voice in your head is difficult. The best is when you’re about to make a decision—even a few at the same time—and feel the mental shackles that have held you back in the past dissolve.
If you are committed to improving yourself and spend time on things that give meaning to your life, who can deny that? Be wary of the ones who try. Wolves in sheeps clothings.
