Change Your Life With Just One Decision

Topics: , , ,

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...

  • Everything in life starts with a decision to attract what you want.

    What do you want in life? A fabulous marriage? Income beyond your wildest dreams? Health, wealth and happiness? To help as many people as you possibly can through your efforts? What do YOU truly want?

    You CAN have it all – the first step is to simply DECIDE you want to attract it! The power of decision is amazing – it puts you into motion! More importantly, it puts the Universe into motion. And nothing is accomplished without action. As Napoleon Hill shared in  Think and Grow Rich, you must be “decisive in nature!” Make a decision, don’t make a decision – have you made a decision? Of course!

    Can it be the simple? Yes-not necessarily easy but simple! The word decision comes from the Latin root de-cize, “to cut away from”. We have to “cut our selves off” from our previous path or directions to make room for the modifications and improvements necessary to attract what we really want to accomplish in life. How do I know this to be true? I’m living it daily in so many ways.

    Before my beautiful and lovely wife Peggy and I got married, we made the decision to attract a happy, fulfilling marriage and that we were going to be married forever. Both of us had previously unsuccessful marriages and neither of us ever wanted that to happen again. To insure neither of us ever had to experience the pain and consequences of an unfulfilling marriage again, we sat, talked and made a conscious joint decision that we would do what it takes to be married forever. By “cutting off” the possibility of anything other than a successful, loving and wonderful marriage, we are living that quality relationship today.

    One of the initial benefits of making that decision was freedom it gives you. Freedom – huh? You see, by making that original decision, it frees you up from having to make choices in the future. Your path is already set. The first decision predetermines so many other potential decisions down the road. When you are going to be married forever, you automatically do the things necessary to accomplish that goal. More importantly, you don’t do the things that are not going to keep you happily married.

    You put the actions in place that empower your marriage. You respect each other totally, trust each other implicitly and make sure that your actions are consistent with people that have been married forever. You show your love in all five love languages that Dr. Gary Chapman suggests, including words of affirmation, giving compliments, and sharing words of encouragement. You spend quality time together sharing, listening to each other and participating in meaningful activities.

    I want to impress upon you that you too can have anything in life you desire once you make the decision to attract what you truly want. Obviously you have to take other actions after the initial decision to accomplish these wants and desires. The exciting part is that by taking this first action – making a decision – you put the universe into motion towards accomplishing your goals. Without first making the first decision, nothing happens.

    A long time ago someone told me that as the chooser we have the choice to choose, but once that choice is chosen, the choice now controls the chooser! No matter where you are in your life – you made the choice to be there some time ago. By visiting and reading this article, you can now make the choice as to where you are going to be today, tomorrow and the rest of your life. What’s it going to be? Are you going to say, “Gee, I’m glad I did” or “Darn, I wish I would have?”

    Live the life your dreams and imagination – decide to go for it and attract the very best!
