Do you know the decisions that you make every moment of your life control your destiny. Your decisions determine what you'll notice, how you'll feel, what you'll do, and ultimately what you will contribute and who you become. That's the power of decision making

If you don't control or make decisions that change your life , you simply aren't in control of your life. When you do control them, you begin to sculpt your experience.

In this guide, we will learn 10 reasons on how the power of decision making can change your life and shape your destiny.

#1. Remember the true power of decision making.

It's a tool you can use in any moment to change your entire life.

The minute you make a new decision, you set in motion a new cause, effect, direction, and destination for your life. You literally begin to change your life the moment you make a new decision. 

Remember that when you start feeling overwhelmed, or when you feel like you don't have a choice, or when things are happening "to" you, you can change it all if you just stop and decide to do so.

Remember, a real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken new action. If there's no action, you haven't truly decided.

#2. Realize that the hardest step in achieving anything is making a true commitment—a true decision.

Carrying out your commitment is often much easier than the decision itself, so make your decisions intelligently, but make them quickly. Don't labor forever over the question of how or if you can do it.

Studies have shown that the most successful people make decisions rapidly because they are clear on their values and what they really want for their lives. The same studies show that they are slow to change their decisions, if at all.

On the other hand, people who fail usually make decisions slowly and change their minds quickly, always bouncing back and forth. Just decide!

Realize that decision making is a kind of act in itself, so a good definition for a decision might be "information acted upon." You know you've truly made a decision when action flows from it. It becomes a cause set in motion.

Often the effect of making a decision helps create the attainment of a larger goal

A critical rule I've made for myself is never to leave the scene of a decision without first taking a specific action toward its realization.

#3. Make decisions often.

The more decisions you make, the better you're going to become at making them. Muscles get stronger with use, and so it is with your decision-making muscles.

#4. Learn from your decisions.

There's no way around it. At times, you're going to screw up, no matter what you do.

And when the inevitable happens, instead of beating yourself into the ground, learn something. Ask yourself, "What's good about this? What can I learn from this?" 

This "failure" may be an unbelievable gift in disguise if you use it to make better decisions in the future.

Rather than focus on the short-term setback, choose instead to learn lessons that can save you time, money, or pain, and that will give you the ability to succeed in the future.

#5. Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.

Once you've decided who you want to be as a person, for example, don't get stuck on the means to achieving it. It's the end you're after.

Too often, in deciding what they want for their lives, people pick the best way they know at the time—they make a map—but then don't stay open to alternate routes.

Don't become rigid in your approach. Cultivate the art of flexibility.

#6. Enjoy making decisions because decisions can change your life.

You must know that in any moment a decision you make can change the course of your life forever: the very next person you stand behind in line or sit next to on an airplane, the very next phone call you make or receive, the very next movie you see or book you read or page you turn could be the one single thing that causes the floodgates to open, and all of the things that you've been waiting for to fall into place.

#7. Live with attitude of expectancy once you make decision.

If you really want your life to be passionate, you need to live with this attitude of expectancy. Years ago, I made what seemed like a small decision, and it has powerfully shaped my life. I decided to start this blog in 2015 and this has been one of the greatest gifts of my life.

This blog has given me everything that I wanted from life, passion, success, money, peace of mind and happiness. And it all started with one decision... the decision that changed my life forever.

#8. Story of Honda - The Power of Decision Making.

Here is a man who clearly made strong decisions to succeed. He had a passion for and belief in what he was doing. He had a great strategy. He took massive action. He kept changing his approach, but still he'd not produced the results that he was committed to. Yet he decided to persevere.

After the war, a tremendous gasoline shortage hit Japan, and Mr. Honda couldn't even drive his car to get food for his family.

Finally, in desperation, he attached a small motor to his bicycle.

The next thing he knew, his neighbors were asking if he could make one of his "motorized bikes" for them.

One after another, they jumped on the bandwagon until he ran out of motors. He decided to build a plant that would manufacture motors for his new invention, but unfortunately he didn't have the capital.

As before, he made the decision to find a way no matter what!

His solution was to appeal to the 18,000 bicycle shop owners in Japan by writing them each a personal letter. He told them how they could play a role in revitalizing Japan through the mobility that his invention could provide, and convinced 5,000 of them to advance the capital he needed.

Still, his motorbike sold to only the most hard-core bicycle fans because it was too big and bulky. So he made one final adjustment, and created a much lighter, scaled-down version of his motorbike. He christened it "The Super Cub," and it became an "overnight" success, earning him the Emperor's award.

Later, he began to export his motorbikes to the baby boomers of Europe and the United States, following up in the seventies with the cars that have become so popular.

Today, the Honda Corporation employs over 200,000 people in both the United States and Japan and is considered one of the biggest car-making empires in Japan, outselling all but Toyota in the United States. 

It succeeds because one man understood the power of a truly committed decision that is acted upon, no matter what the conditions, on a continuous basis.

#9. Make long-term decisions and don't run behind instant gratification.

As a society, we're so focused on instantaneous gratification that our short-term solutions often become long-term problems.

Our kids have trouble paying attention in school long enough to think, memorize, and learn partly because they've become addicted to instantaneous gratification from constant exposure to things like video games, TV commercials, and MTV.

As a nation, we have the highest number of overweight children in history because of our unrelenting pursuit of the quick fix: fast food, instant pudding, and microwave brownies.

In business, too, this kind of short-term focus can be deadly. The whole controversy surrounding the Exxon Valdez disaster that happened in 1989 could have been averted by making one small decision. 

Exxon could have outfitted its tankers with double hulls, a proactive decision that would have prevented oil spills in the event of collision. But the oil company chose not to, looking at the immediate rather than long-range impact on its bottom line.

Following the crash and resultant spill, Exxon was responsible for paying a whopping $1.1 billion* as some compensation for the devastating economic damage it has caused, not to mention the immeasurable ecological destruction to Alaska and surrounding areas.

#10. There are no failures in life. There are only results.

No matter how prepared you are, there's one thing that I can absolutely guarantee: if you're on the river of life, it's likely you're going to hit a few rocks. That's not being negative; that's being accurate.

The key is that when you do run aground, instead of beating yourself up for being such a "failure," remember that there are no failures in life. There are only results.

If you didn't get the results you wanted, learn from this experience so that you have references about how to make better decisions in the future.

One of the most important decisions you can make to ensure your long-term happiness is to decide to use whatever life gives you in the moment. The truth of the matter is that there's nothing you can't accomplish if:

  1. You clearly decide what it is that you're absolutely committed to achieving,
  2. You are willing to take massive action,
  3. You notice what's working or not, and
  4. You continue to change your approach until you achieve what you want, using whatever life gives you along the way. 

Anyone who's succeeded on a large scale has taken these four steps and followed the Ultimate Success Formula.
