Making Decisions is Essential for Self Improvement

There is a massive difference between hoping or wishing for self improvement, or that something will change in our lives, and actively deciding to make changes in our lives.

New Year resolutions often fall into the wishing and hoping category. If we say Id like to give up smoking or I need to lose weight or I really should get fit or I should get a better job our chances of success arent great. Why not? The wording alone makes these more like a wish list of things that we think will make us happier if they happened. This is a bit like saying Id like to win the lottery and the very lack of conviction makes their odds of success pretty similar.

These are not decisions. Decisions are when we say to ourselves I am going to do whatever I have to do to lose 30 pounds in the next six months or I am not prepared to put up with my lousy job any longer. We need to decide that enough is enough and be absolutely serious that this is what we want. We need to be prepared get any information and help we need, form a plan and be prepared to take massive and consistent action. We need to be 100% committed to our decisions and be prepared to follow through whatever it takes.

Wherever we are in our lives now, it is due to the decision weve made in the past. It can also be due to the lack of decisions weve made. Many people drift through life with no real purpose or plans and never really make many, if any serious decisions.

If we want to make positive changes to our lives and have greater success and happiness, there are many self improvement books, audio programs, seminars and coaching programs that can help enormously.

However, the first step to making any change is making a decision, whether its to give up smoking or start that business youve been talking about for years.

We can have access to the best personal development tools available, but without having made the necessary decisions, little will change. But when we make firm decisions and know exactly what we want, we will find the strength and resources, and take the actions needed to succeed.
