Making The Right Decisions

Updated on February 21, 2012

By Making Many Of The Wrong Decisions First

I keep on trying to read and get my hands on any self help information that will improve my life

Then again everything sounds so easy

Until we put it to the test

Can we remember what we need to do when the time is right ?

Do we follow our own instincts and throw caution to the wind ?

I hope we do a little of both

Learning from so many good reliable sources that will guide us in the right direction

Giving us some knowledge and insight that we apply in our own way to improve our life and the lives of others

That includes not just family and relatives but it can go much deeper than that

Friends and sometimes strangers who believe in helping others

I honestly believe making the right decisions is based on learning from all the bad ones we might of made but with good intentions

Applying for a job and not getting hired

Finding another job that offers a better opportunity and advancement

Leaving friends that you thought would help you that only brought you down

You search for new friends that bring you closer to your goals and you both inspire each other often

Working hard for many years trying to get ahead

Taking that same concentrated effort and applying it somewhere else to bring a greater return and exceeding far beyond your dreams

Learning from your mistakes and taking the time to track your progress and goals


A wonderful chain of true friends that can never be broken

Life is amazing and taking the time to prove it by enjoying it often

May all your decisions help build the life that you want and dream

      Life is very simple, if we allow it to be so. We are here to live and each of us has our own goal to try to reach. My own goal is grow and learn as much as I can before I die. It doesn't matter if I am successful in the things that I do, because even if I fail, I am still learning and growing. I can never be disappointed in my decisions because experience is a wonderful teacher.

      Eiddwen Taking the time to think and rethink where would I be if didn't make all those decisions that have lead me here.Better yet where will I be in the future with the right and wrong decisions leading my way.Every day is started with one single step.Do I go left, no right. I think I am going to sit a moment and think.I would walk backwards if it was easier but I know I would probably trip.So I go forward with my eyes wide open and eager to see all life and what it is and everything I want it to be.It is so wonderful to enjoy the day together with you.You have taken a moment out of your precious life to share with me and life doesn't get any better than that.Here is to many more exciting and challenging hubs.
