Today’s podcast episode is for anyone who is feeling stuck. And no matter what you do, it seems you just can’t make any real progress. Maybe you have a goal in mind or a business idea even, but it always seems like you’re spinning your wheels.
So today I want to unpack the idea of decision-making as our secret success weapon.
The more I’ve thought about it, the more I’ve come to accept that any forward motion we make in life requires the ability to make decisions and stick to them. In fact, studies show that the average adult makes about 35,000 decisions a day. Wow!
Those who can harness the true power of decision making are well on their way to achieving their goals and making the impact they want to make in the world.
So the more I thought about this topic, the more I came to realize there are actually four kinds of decision makers. And I want you to listen closely to determine which kind of decision maker you are.
1. The Avoider
2. The Researcher
3. The Second Guesser
4. The Action Taker
The thing to remember is that progress is absolutely impossible unless we’re taking action.
Action takers are decision makers by default. You can’t take action without making decisions. And each action you take inevitably leads to more decisions that need to be made. But the more you do it, the easier it becomes. Decision-making is like a muscle. The more you flex it, the stronger you become.
So here’s to the decision makers.
If you want to be powerful, you need to be a decision maker.
If you want to progress, you need to be a decision maker.
If you want to make an impact, you need to be a decision maker.
And I feel so strongly about this that I’m actually launching a 21-day challenge inside our free Power Your Platform Facebook group called 21 Days of Decision Making.
During this challenge, we’ll be challenging you to make decisions – some small and some big – about life and business, decisions that will help move you forward and help you grow your business.
So I hope you’ll join us there. Because it’s time to be courageous and begin making the decisions that will help us step into the impact we’re meant to have in the world.
This is your time. This is my time. This is our time.
What do you say? The decision is yours.
