How To Be More Decisive: 5 Simple Strategies That Actually Work
Do you want
Society likes someone who believes they can do it, and drowns out anyone who says they can’t.
You know, others want to be around you, building you a little network. You find yourself being more confident towards challenges you would have backed off beforehand.
By exuding confidence, you find yourself being more likely to succeed, and when you fail, you just imagine yourself succeeding next time and learning from your mistakes.
Decisive people attract success.
You might think that working that boring job every day is fine because you’re familiar with it and it gives you financial peace of mind.
Or that living in your one-horse town is fine because you know every person and location there, and if you moved to a new place, you’d have to relearn.
Or simply you feel like you’ve done everything you can to make this life more fullfilling.
The thing is you feel bored with what you’re doing. You don't feel stimulated at all. You feel, well, nothing.
Time to change that? Here's 5 simple strategies that actually work.
Slowly incorporate more positive elements into your life
You can play positive recordings, push out negative thoughts, and be like the engine that keeps repeating that “You can do it!” It’s hard to change your outlook right away, but by slowly incorporating more positive elements into your life, you can get rid of doubts.
Always remind yourself
Your mind needs constant reminders. There’s always the phone option, but if you’re the person who gets easily distracted, there are other ways to do this too. Write it down.Get the idea drilled into your head by seeing reminders. Seeing the same thing over and over can brand it into your mind.
Don’t dwell on the past
Past failures are, well, past. You learned the lesson and at least now you know what not to do. Set yourself on a timeframe if you have to in order to give you time to build up some courage, but not procrastinate.
Listen to people who says it can’t be done
...and question them back:“Why it can’t be done?” It's then that you understand whether you are willing to do what it takes (and find insights on how to do it).
Accept your off days and weeks
Everyone is going to have their off days and weeks. The important thing is that you don’t use that as an excuse to continue down that path. As long as you reach your destination, taking a different road won’t matter.
