5 Rules for Making the Right Decisions
Never underestimate the impact a single decision can have: one wrong move can ruin your entire life, career, and a relationship etc. we must choose wisely to generate joy and happiness in our lives. However, when the road forks, confusion sets in. it’s completely normal to get under the well of confusion when different options present different pros and cons. And under the pressure of making the correct choice, all or none of our choices may even seem right. Where, then, do we turn for guidance?
Apply these five rules when weighing your options to ensure that your decisions always play out in your favour:
- Pay attention to signs.
The very first rule asks us to open up to the obvious signs; what exactly you wanted to do, what you are thinking about that particular situation. The universe tries to offer you guiding signals. When you do recognize something as a sign, don’t dismiss it. Reflect on the potential message being delivered to you.
- Take your own advice.
If you can’t able to reach on any decision, you have learned it in vain. Our lifelong experiences should fortify our wisdom and provide clarity to our vision. If you take the same actions now, the same results will repeat. What would you advise someone else to do if they shared an issue identical to yours? Take a sip from your own fountain of knowledge and take your own advice.
- Keep clean your conscience.
No decision should stain your spirit. Do your best to act for the good of everyone, not just for your own good. Decisions that hurt others and only benefit you will eventually turn against you. When in doubt, consult your moral code. Keep your conscience clean by making clean choices.
- Organize your thoughts
Give your mind a positive atmosphere to think. You have to organize your thoughts in the right direction; you should know where your thinking takes you. This will help you in making the right decisions and choices in life. The pressure of making the right decisions can be overwhelming, but acting on these principles, our choices become infallible and our lives more rewarding.
- Know your influences.
We all have someone with whom we discuss our life (ups and downs). Why we need someone when the right answer is all within us? When we recognize that who influences us, we can discern whether their advice is causing positive or negative effects. So ask yourself. Anyone can offer you their take on what’s right but no one can offer you what’s right for you–only you can do that for yourself. Better to go within and find the solutions there.
