Making a Decision is the First Critical Step to Success

Jul 19, 2008
A vital key to achieving success in any endeavor we undertake is to make a decision. Now you may say OK I make a lot of decisions so what is so special about making a decision. By making a decision we put power behind what we are seeking to accomplish.

Yes we make many decisions every day. We decide what time we will wake up, then when we will get out of bed, then whether to eat breakfast before or after we brush our teeth. This goes on all day. So we make thousands of decisions every day.

These are mainly minor inconsequential decisions. On the other hand we decide to get married or not at most several times in our life. We decide to purchase a house a handful of times. So the major decisions are made very infrequently and we usually spend many hours, days or even weeks on them and there is usually a lot of energy put into them.

As far as our health goes we have probably not made a strong conscious decision our self. We probably evolved into our state of health as we grew up. Our parents, teachers, and peers are the likely ones who molded our beliefs, attitudes and habits around health.

The secret here is that we need to make a conscious decision about our health. We need to decide what we want, why we want it and what we will do to get it. To just say I want to be healthy is not clear enough. What does healthy mean to you. Paint a picture in your mind, and make it as complete as you possibly can, energize it, and get excited about it.

Then act on it. Do something every day to support your decision. If you say you will exercise 15 minutes every day then do it. No excuses, rain or shine and not 14 minutes, just do it.

It is your choice, do you really want it or not. Be honest with your self. You can do it if you really want to. If the reason or dream is big enough the facts don't count. You can and will be able to do it in spite of all odds.

One more thing about making a decision, there is a universal principle at work here. I can't prove this to you so please go on faith till you prove it for yourself. Once we make a decision. Once we really decide it is as if we are sending out an order to the universe. I want Perfect Health. The universe then responds. It responds in ways we may not expect, but it responds and brings your decision into reality.

So be careful what you ask for. Please note your current life situation is what you have been asking for so far in your life. You may not like hearing this, but everything you have done, every act, every decision; everything is what has gone into making your life exactly what it is right now. And remember when you make a decision don't change your mind every 5 minutes. It is like planting a seed and digging it up every couple of hours to see how it is growing. Well it won't. But if you plant it, then water it, fertilize it, and give it sunshine it will grow. It's the law it has to. The same universal principles come to play and work for us when we make a decision.
