The Consequences of Your Decisions
You Have to Live with the Consequences of Your Decisions
So what does decision making really mean? When we need to do something, but are not sure of how and what to do, we stand at the crossroads of decision making. The key to making a wise decision is the ability to select the right course and ask the right questions. Once we have figured out the right path, it becomes important to look for meaningful answers to crucial questions so as to be able to make a wise decision. When it comes to matters of our own life, we need to pluck up the courage to take decisions on our own. Is it possible to decide what is best for us if we place the decision making process in the hands of others?
It is of pivotal importance that we keep a keen insight into right decision making in each choice we make. There are several aspects of your day to day life wherein you need to select between choices: what we want to be as an adult, what to study in school, whom to marry, what clothes to wear, whether to be an employee or an entrepreneur, whether to rent an apartment or purchase a home of our own, whether to remain single or have a family, what to eat for lunch, what job to accept or business to start, which movie to watch, etc. What we choose ultimately determines how we live and what kind of life we should have.
Making the right decision requires that a person thinks before they act, as it is not a matter of luck or a toss of a coin. It is the self-mastery of taking control over your thoughts, feelings and behaviors. There are several reasons why a person should think before they act; the main one being that the consequences of their decision is what they have to live with. In life we are constantly being confronted by challenges of diverse forms, but what matters is the ability to make the right decision. What matters most is to think before we act so as to avoid costly pitfalls and irreversible mistakes. If we fail to think straight, it might as well result in a big mistake thus leading to sticky situations which end up only in regret. Keep in mind that you can only learn from your mistakes once you truly admit that you had committed them.
