The Power to Choose

The greatest power that a person possesses is the power to choose.”- J. Martin Kohe

Do you have the power to choose your directions in life? It is important to have the power to choose what we want and need. That is what makes a complete human being. If you lose the power to choose what you want, if you lose the power to control your destiny, if you lose the power to choose your career, if you lose the power to choose who you want to spend the rest of your life with, if you lose the power to make life’s decisions, if you lose the power to enjoy your life, if you lose the power to be who God created you to be, if you lose the power to choose the college you want to attend, my friends, nothing is left.

We are happier when we have the right to make our own decisions. It means we are in control of our lives. When you allow people to control your decisions, you have given them the right to own you. If you want to be successful in life, you must control your decisions. Don’t let people control your decisions for you. When they do, only one thing is certain: they will mislead you.

The Greatest Mistake

The greatest mistake you can make in life is continually fearing you will make one.”- Elbert Hubbard, writer

If you want to get things done, if you want to grow, if you want to be successful, you should embrace the art of making mistakes. Successful people understand that making mistakes is part of the game of success. They understand that you cannot be successful without making lots of mistakes. Unsuccessful people, on the other hand, believe that making mistakes is not allowed. They believe that playing it safe is the best way to achieve success. The key point here is: learn from your mistakes.

Freedom

“Freedom is the opportunity to make decisions.”- Kenneth Hildebrand Freedom is what we all want to enjoy, but only a few people are really free. You are free when you are in control of your decision making process. You are free when you are in control of your life. You are free when you allow yourself to be you. You are free when you believe in yourself. You are free when you love yourself (not in a narcissistic way). You are free when you fill your mind with positive thoughts. You are free when you have the opportunity to make your own decisions.

The Bridge between Where You Are and Where You Want To Be

“The only thing that stands between a man and what he wants from life is often merely the WILL to try it and the faith to believe that it is possible.”- Richard M. Devos, American businessman

It is impossible to achieve anything of value without action. You cannot grow without taking the right actions. A comprehensive plan without action is a waste of time. For example, you clean your car because you want it to be clean. Your car is clean because you took action to clean it. The same is true if you want to be successful. You can do it if you believe you can do it.

Putting it Together:

If you want to control your life, make sure you are the owner of your decisions. If not, you are not in control.

You Are in Control of Your Life.

Because you are in control of your life, don’t ever forget that. You are what you are because of the conscious and subconscious choices you have made.”- Barbara Hall

Yes, you are in control of your life. You are in control of your mind. You are in control of your business. You are in control of your relationships. You are in control of your decisions. Your life is important. So, it is important that YOU take control of everything concerning your life. When you take control of your life, you are responsible for anything that comes after. You have the right to make decisions that will affect your life, in positive or negative ways.

Decisions you make will affect your life, in positive or negative ways. If you make bad decisions, they will affect you in negative ways. If you make good decisions, they will affect your life in positive ways.

Why do people make bad decisions, even when that decision is going to affect them, in negative ways? Because They fail:

  • To  follow the decision-making steps
  • To define the objectives
  • To put together enough information
  • To put together important information
  • To identify the possible options
  • To evaluate those possible options
  • To check for consequences

Before you make any decision, make sure you consult multiple sources. Make sure you listen to good people for advice. To make the right decision concerning your life, the steps above are a good place to start. You need to pay attention to the above elements. Other ways that would help you make the right decisions are:

  • Be an open-minded person
  • Seek resources from other people
  • Put your pride in your pocket.
  • Ask great questions.

Decision making is hard, but if you take the time to think through everything and collect the right information, you will make the right decision about your life. You are the master of your life. I am not. Nobody is, but YOU.

Take the courage to control your life. It takes courage to achieve success in life. E.E. Cummings said, “It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are.”
