“I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions”…. Stephen Covey.
What is the trigger that will get people to make a move?
Well, for some its fear and for others is just pure procrastination! What are you fearful of? You do not even know. You think its “failure.” But you are not sure. Your decision could be ultimately successful. The greatest decision you have ever made. So, what’s up?
Remember, you never get the sale or new opportunity unless you ask for it. What are you going to do? . You have a 50/50 chance your client will buy your idea, product, or service or your decision will make a significant improvement in your life and relationship with others! That is surprisingly good odds I would say. So, ASK! Now, ask yourself! What do I have to gain or loose from my decision? If I have done my due diligence and reviewed all the possible alternatives, addressed the potential negative consequences and/or good outcomes, and made adjustments, what are my odds of success? I would say much better!
So, what are you waiting for? No decision is a decision. And if it turns out half right, you have made progress. If you hit a home run – BRAVO! And, if you are not successful, what did you learn from it so the next decision you make will have a higher probability of success?
Most people who have achieved success in their businesses and personal life had many setbacks and failures. But you only loose when you stop trying!
So, take too heart what I have shared with you today and take action! Begin making some “change” decisions” in your life, business and career today. Do not do it blindly. Do your homework and see the results!
PS: The Secret Sauce is YOU!
“Decision is the spark that ignites action. Until a decision is made, nothing happens…. Decision is the courageous facing of issues, knowing that if they are not faced, problems will remain forever unanswered...” Wilferd Peterson
