Fresh Start: Decisiveness
Updated: Oct 3, 2018
1. the ability to make decisions quickly and effectively."the crisis will require leadership and decisiveness to resolve it"
2. the conclusive nature of an issue that has been settled or a result that has been produced."there was no doubting the decisiveness of his victory"
I want to start Mondays with a little bit of a push. A step in the right direction. Mondays seem to have some negative vibes that are constantly stuck to this one single day of the week.
Coming into 2019, I want to work on myself. Things that I know can be holding me back sometimes. Here recently I heard someone say there are some things you just can't change about people. While I agree with that partially, there is an issue I have with this statement. They were saying, for example, someone with naturally born tendencies to be selfish, could never work through that issue of selfishness. This is something I definitely do not agree with. Sure, there are things about yourself that you can't change, my height for example. But there are things (such as the selfishness example listed above) that can be changed with time and consistent conscious effort.
I know you're thinking where are you going with this and what does all of this have to do with decisiveness?!? See, I tend to constantly struggle within myself with decision making. I also seem to need someone else's opinion and even then, I still can't choose what's best for ME. Starting now and coming into 2019, I want to be consciously more decisive. Sure being indecisive might not be a life or death situation, but to me its something I think could improve my own life. I want to be sure of decisions I make, rather than second guessing myself.
So, my challenge for you this week is, to consciously be more decisive in every area of your life. Choose to know what you want, what you need and what you feel.
