The Decision-Making Advantage


Going for something you want, realizing a project, a dream or even a small step or change in your life requires a decision. Not a wish, not a plan, not a “I should” or “I may”. But a decision THAT you are going to do or be something.

A well-known proverb says that things start moving your way once you have decided. And this is 100% true. But there is more to it. As long as we have not decided, there are plenty of other options floating around and most likely many of them will be chosen before you go for what you originally wanted. If you go for it at all.

Because we are by nature not focused on that one thing we want. You may be focused on the discomfort related to it or all the other things that need to happen first, but not on that one new thing you want to create.

The moment you decide, something happens in your subconscious. It understands e.g. that taking piano lessons or moving to India is not just an idea, but actually happening. It won’t even be able to distinguish whether you are already there or not. With that, resistance lowers, you will already feel the energy and thus keep your focus on the goal. Most of that happens subconsciously – as 90% of everything in our brain does.

Deciding is difficult for many of us (me included) because it does not leave other options open. But when you do decide, you will feel a rush of energy and determination – that is moving things forward.

“Life is filled with difficult decisions, and winners are those who make them.” – Dan Brown
