Decisions decisions and decisions! Making decisions that count is NOT easy for most people. The easy road for a lot of people is to procrastinate or make excuses about what they can’t do.
Remember though, that if you are going to continue to procrastinate, you will always be where you are. Your situation will not change until you do something about it. Decisions that count are those that will get you to take action!
The Difference Between I Should and I Must
With the year so new, a lot of people make new year resolutions, and until this very year, I used to be one of those people. I have since stopped making them because I have never stuck to really making it work. I have also realized that most resolutions are made of shoulds:
I should start exercsisng
I should start eating helthily
I should save money
I should read more
I should get more organized
I should go to the gym more
I should appreciate the people n my life more
I should I should I should!
The problem with should is that it is not that urgent for you to take action, enough to change your circumstance. A should has not gotten to the point where you make a decision to change it, you are still comfortable being where you are with your life the way it is. Saying “I should lose weight” is not a real decision to lose weight, because you can still procrastinate, you can still get out of it and you are not ready to really take action on it.
The only time you really make a decision is when you change your shoulds to musts!
When something becomes a must, you are going to give it priority, you are going to back it up with action and you will do it, no matter what!
If you are not happy with the way your life is, decide on what it is you want to happen in your life. Make a decision today to work towards it, make a plan and take action towards your goals.
Do you want things to change in your life? Then make that decision!
If you want change, if you want your life to be better, if you want your life to be greater than it is, if you want to be happier, then you have to be willing to pay the price. You have to be willing to make that decision and commit to it, and you have to be willing to work at it every day of your life, until you get to where you need to be.
So, let me ask you, what do you want to change in your life? Make your list. Do it now, don’t put it off any longer!
