The Choices We Make In Life

Life gets so busy that you forget that you do have choices in life at all times. 

“Sometimes, it’s the smallest decisions that can change your life forever.” —Keri Russell

Every time you make a decision, you are making multiple choices. For every action, there is a reaction. Most decisions, such as what you eat, are minor decisions with only a small impact on your life. It’s the big decisions that can change your life forever. Those are the tough ones to make.

When you are indecisive, you are actually running a whole of choices through our minds. By being indecisive, you are creating parallel experiences. 

Below are a few principals to making better life decisions.

Huge decisions are tough yet essential, so weigh up the values. There is the emotional, financial, intellectual, and social significance which you should consider. Consider them all and weigh them up appropriately. When weighing them up, you should keep in mind the long term and short term effects.

In general, we, as humans, are biased towards our pre-existing beliefs to protect our reputation. Most of us can’t see long term rewards as it is difficult to look past our fears and anxieties. Emotions control everything we see. 

It is tough to give up on something you have worked on for a long time. At times you could have been wrong at estimating the value, but until you accept that you have been wrong in the past, you won’t be able to learn from it to make better judgments for the future.

Your decision making encourages you to avoid short-term failures. It would be wise for you to find the short term failure, as that will enable you to see long-term success happening. Lessons are learnt from failures. Hard work and persistence is the key to success.

Many businesses had failed before they became successful. Many foolish business ideas were challenges with limited downside and huge upsides. The idea is if they lose, they lose a little, yet if they win, they win big.

Your ‘default’ button avoids making short term failure, even if it means losing out on the long term success. When thinking only of the immediate result, you cut yourself off from the more significant potential gains in life.

There are always long and short roads, as well as smooth and rocky roads, in your life. You will cross many paths on your life’s journey.

There is no guarantee in life, and you would never know if your decision was the right one until you have tried it. It is better than sitting in limbo and always thinking, what if!?.
