When your attitude shifts, your life follows suit. Everyone reaches that magic “decision time.” You know the time. You look at your life or a situation and determine “that’s enough; something is going to change NOW.”
A firm decision results in an attitude shift. Your attitude will get you everywhere. The relief associated with a major attitude shift is phenomenal. The trauma and stress are all previous to the decision. Once the decision is made, the attitude turns positive and progressive. The stress comes from the “should I” or “shouldn’t I” dilemma. Stop shoulding all over yourself and get with the program.
So many people spend so much time getting ready to get ready that they never actually make a decision. What is it in your life right now that is holding you back from making a progressive decision, a progressive attitude? Wealth builders and self-made millionaires all make decisions.
Self-made millionaires possess decision oriented habits and positive attitudes. Wealth builders know that a positive attitude will get you everywhere. It starts with a dream and builds to a goal. A plan forms designing the process to reach the goal. Absolute laser focus is applied to the implementation of the plan. Frequent benchmarks or checkpoints are established to insure the plan is on course. Will there be adjustments? Yes. Even a jet airplane does not go from San Francisco to New York without a few minor tweaks and turns.
The entire process starts with a firm decision and an attitude shift.
If your life or plan is off target, check your attitude. Queasy attitude probably means there is a decision in limbo. Clear the roadblock by determining what decision you have procrastinated about making. Make the decision. Feel the relief and the positive attitude shift.
You can never make forward progress and remain sitting on the fence. Make the decision. Establish a positive attitude. Set the goal and the plan to achieve it. Establish the course correction checkpoints and prepare to celebrate victory.
