Why Are Decisions Important?

by Michael Berry on February 6, 2015

As you look at the landscape of your life that you’ve studied in your personal development, and survey where you are now in comparison to where you’d like to be in the near future, the question often comes up about what to do next? What is the road map that can begin to make what was always possible for you a part of your new reality?

DECISIONS are the starting point to create actual change in your life!

There is nothing more powerful or transformative that you can do in your life than make a decision. Every choice you make brings with it the power and possibilities that are contained within. Equally important, the power that each decision brings with it is open-ended—it evolves organically over time. So what might begin as a simple choice involving a very small idea of minor consequence can evolve into an absolutely life-changing experience.

This is the magic of decision-making! It is often, if not always, more than it seems at first!
There are mysteries all around us in life. It has been said that the fact you can read and make meaning out of the symbols (text) on this page is a miracle of itself. As we observe and make meaning out of what happens to and around us, there seem to be things within our control and others outside of our influence that take place every day. In my blog I  primarily concerned with those areas that fall within our control—the vast majority of which comprises our lives.

As we go through our personal development we are exploring ways to think and behave that create the results we are looking for. So as you continue to take control over the experiences you have in your life, you will discover that no change can take place without someone first making a new decision.

In the field of science, legendary physicist Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727) described his First Law of Motion, often referred to as the Law of Inertia, as “an object in motion will stay in motion and an object at rest will stay at rest unless acted upon by an external force.”

The exact same Law can be applied to the creation of the life we desire!

Everything will continue in the current direction without a new force being applied to it. These forces can be internal or external. In terms of what you can control in your life, this force begins with a thought or belief, then progresses to a decision and action, which creates a new direction or result in your life. For processes within your control it doesn’t happen any other way.

Personal development is our business and our life.

Decisions form part of our daily lives. It is therefore important that you make the correct decisions in order to drive your life into a positive feature. If you make wrong decisions then you can regret them for the rest of your life.
