Making Resolute Decisions (Part 4 of 5)
Why is our reason. Reason is our motivation. Motivation is our fuel.
Making resolute decisions on a consistent basis is directly tied to answering the question, why?
Often, in moments of decision our "why" is not clear. It’s easy to make decisions based on our now instead of our potential future. This is especially true when it comes to making the seemingly mundane daily decisions needed to accomplish large goals.
Why would I wake up early, when I could get a few more hours of sleep?
Why would I impose financial limitations on myself when I could have a brand new car?
Why would I sacrifice when I don’t have to?
These are the questions that run through our minds in the moments of decision. And, when we don’t have our why close by, we will forget the impact small decisions have on our future.
I’ll be honest, it’s hard to wake up at 5:30 in the morning. Really hard, and I don’t always succeed. However, a huge part of my 5:30 success is remembering there’s someone depending on this message to get them where they were meant to be. Armed with that why, I make the resolute decision and you can too.
What is your why?
This week’s video (Part 4 of the series “Making Resolute Decisions”) continues to explore the idea around how our why affects our decisions.
