The Power of Decision
The Power of Decision
YOUR DESTINY IS BORN IN YOUR MOMENT OF DECISION.
Do you know the difference between extraordinary men and ordinary men?
Extraordinary men make extraordinary decisions while ordinary men make ordinary decisions.
Men are great because of the decisions they make. Many years ago, the motivational speaker cum philosopher, Jim Rohn said “You cannot make progress without making decisions.”The Power of Decision Click To Tweet
You are where you are today by the decisions you made. Even indecision is a decision not to decide!
When I look at you I can predict some decisions you have made in the past.
If you are in good shape you have made some good decisions in the past but if you are in bad shape you have also made some bad decisions in the past.
The good news is you can make new decisions. You can change your life.
If you are not educated well enough to get the job you desire, you can decide to go back to school or get some online certifications to improve yourself.
If you are in a job that drains you, you can decide to quit and get another job or create one.
“Oh, I am not sure I can’t get another job, I will stay with this even though it’s killing me.” That is a decision. You have simply decided to whine and cry for the rest of your life.
Are you in a relationship that drains you emotionally, physically, and spiritually? Will you decide to leave or stay?
Your Future Is Your Hand
When I first heard this statement it took me some time to understand its meaning.
Being a believer in God, I believed that my destiny was in the hands of God. I thought I had no part to play. What would be would be. How wrong I was!
I have since learned that my decisions create my future and ultimately my destiny.
Here is the simple way to put it, God has destined that every man should be healthy, wealthy, successful, and prosperous, however, it’s the man who decides to be healthy, wealthy, successful, and prosperous that would ultimately fulfill that destiny.
Therefore, when you decide, you choose. You choose the direction of your life by your decisions.
One Decision Can Change Your Life
I made a decision a long time ago that I would not live my life as a victim. I would not give my power to outside conditions.I made a decision a long time ago that I would not live my life as a victim. I would not give my power to outside conditions. Click To Tweet
I decided to be great, rich, successful, healthy, and prosperity. That decision changed my life by changing my focus.
Today, I only pay attention to the idea of health, wealth, success, and prosperity.
Early today, a friend called me on the phone and said something very remarkable. He said I am always upbeat, and he has never seen me down.
The truth is I have had many opportunities to be down but I have decided long time ago to always be up! To stay up! This decision has made me start my day with inspirational and motivational material.
I read only positive books.
Even when I start feeling down, it doesn’t take a long time before I bounce back!
What Are You Deciding Today
Your Future is not in your past, it’s in you! I wrote a book with that title ( you may download it for free Here )
It doesn’t require a decade to change, it only takes a decision.
Would you decide today to be wise even though you have been foolish before now?
Would you decide today to be rich even though you don’t have a dime in your pocket now?
Would you decide today to be healthy, wealthy, successful and prosperous regardless of your present circumstances?
It’s not where you are that matters, it’s where you CHOOSE to be. Your future is born in the moment of your decision.It's not where you are that matters, it's where you CHOOSE to be. Your future is born in the moment of your decision. Click To Tweet
Make A Decision Today
Pick a clean piece of paper and write, I …..( your name) decide today to be:
Write out what YOU WANT. Decide.
Don’t Focus on How
As a Coach, I realized the reason many people never made decisions is that they don’t know how to achieve their decisions.
They confuse the decision-making stage with the problem-solving stage.
You see, you will never find the how until you decide the WHAT. The how would come if you know the what.
Once you know what you want you activate the creative power of your mind to create the how.
Successful people you know didn’t have all the equations solved before they started. Not Elon Musk, not Bill Gates, not E.A Adeboye or Felix Duyilemi.
But one thing that separates us is that we knew WHERE we are GOING. We chose the path and God opened up the way.Successful people you know didn't have all the equations solved before they started.

Once you decide, you draw into your life by the law of attraction people, resources, energy, creativity, facilities, etc, you need to actualize your decisions.
Don’t Allow The Past to Stop You
I tell people this, “A fool at forty is not a fool forever if he makes new decisions. ”
Even if you have made poor decisions in the past, you can make new decisions today. You might not be able to correct the past, but you can correct the future.
Don’t submit the key of your future to your past.
You have the power now to make new and wonderful decisions. Remember, your destiny is not in your conditions but in your decisions.You have the power now to make new and wonderful decisions. Remember, your destiny is not in your conditions but in your decisions. Click To Tweet
