Let me ask you a simple but complicated question about making a reasonable decision. Why are you reading this article? To study or learn more about decision-making. I guess that would be your answer. A good decision has unique ways to identify it and we must understand that there are ways to separate the good from the bad.
Repeatedly, I have been speaking about making a decision; making the right and profitable decision, I know that we need it to make success on anything. Keep visiting this site for more articles that are helpful, you would be inspired to make a reasonable decision in your time of need.
It’s only by making decisions that we would achieve our goals. Everything that we need to do in life requires a reasonable decision. Here are the reasons why you should always make a reasonable decision in life:
1. A Decision Is A Conclusion Of Whatever Your Heart Agrees On
Whatever your heart agrees on, it believes in and whatever it believes in, it can achieve. Know exactly what you are making a decision for or against before you conclude, to enable you to choose the best from the options. Remember, the decision would not require a hurry—it requires a solid time.
2. A Decision Determines What Your Future Would Bring Forth
That means, tomorrow’s result is determined by today’s decision or action. If you are in a haste to make a decision without any cogent reason, you may as well end up losing everything you have laboured for in your entire life. The reason to make a decision is to make success, and success comes when our decisions are not nugatory. Once you identify that you’re making a wrong decision, stop and find out what led to it.
3. A Decision Is Employed As A Tool That Leads To Success Or Failure
You must not forget what a decision can do at any given time. It’s an agreement on how objectives would be achieved. The decision you make determines where you are going, what you would become, and what you would be recommended for. Let us consider these men who made notable and reasonable decisions in their time, according to a great writer, Napoleon Hill:
“The value of decisions depends upon the courage required to render them. The great decisions which served as the foundation of civilization were reached by assuming great risks which often meant the chance of death. Lincoln’s decision to issue his famous Proclamation of Emancipation, which gave freedom to the coloured people of America, was rendered with full understanding that his act would turn thousands of friends and political supporters against him.
Socrates’ decision to drink the cup of poison, rather than compromise his personal belief, was a decision of courage. It turned time ahead of thousand years and gave people then unborn the right to freedom of thought and speech. The decision of Gen. Robert E. Lee, when he came to the parting of the ways with the Union and took up the cause of the South, was a decision of courage, for he knew well that it might cost him his own life and that it would surely cost the lives of others.”
4. A Decision Must Be Reasonable
If you have no good reasons, don’t rush into making a decision. The right decision makes a man happy and successful. Consequently, when one fails through the decision he makes, he will feel the demise of happiness. Don’t wish your decision to make you unsuccessful, always be positive in thinking.
There is always a reason for everything we do in life. You could have a reason to go to school, choose a particular course, marry on time or remain unmarried. It all depends on what you want. Be reasonable in all you do especially when making decisions.
A decision plays a powerful role in shaping the future of man. Whenever we make a decision, we have staked something. Some people stake their lives, future, careers, possessions, and friendships in order to get what they want. Be careful my friend; don’t stake in vain and don’t decide in vain. Let everything you do follow positivity, and don’t forget that negative reasons are of no use when making decisions especially, decisions that would affect your future.
