Episode #67 – Simple and Effective Ways to Make Hard Decisions Easier
We all, at some point in our lives, will need to make a decision. And to be honest, that’s just the way of life. We will need to make a choice for every day that we’re blessed with. In other words, from the moment we wake up, it all begins. These choices include what we wear, eat, and what time we choose to leave.
If that isn’t easy enough for you, think about making decisions in life that you must. Therefore, it isn’t about whether you want to or not. It’s about how that decision impacts you and/or the ones you love. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is the best thing to do. And sometimes going through the hard is necessary as there is no way around it.
Considering this is something we all have to go through, I figured providing support can go a long way. Understanding the importance of these decisions can go a long way. In all honesty, I don’t believe it’s hard for you to make your own decisions. It’s living with them that makes it hard for us.
To help out with the process, I’ll shed light on some things for you. The intention isn’t to paralyze you. Rather, it is to empower you in creating the outcome you see fit.
Acknowledge and Follow Your Intuition
A lot of times I get friends calling me as it pertains to making decisions they feel is hard. But when I dig deeper into the matter, I realize something interesting. The problem is never really their inability to make a choice. The battle lies in their refusing to accept the decision that has already been made within.
That is why it is very important that you acknowledge and listen to your own intuition. I always believe that your intuition is the God in you. Therefore, when you hear that little voice speaking softly inside, that is the power God has given you. In other words, that is the power you’ve been blessed to use in navigating through life.
So when my friends called me asking for help to make a difficult decision, I feel their answer. And most of the time they wouldn’t reveal their answer until I’ve shared my thoughts. Your intuition, feel it, acknowledge it, and use it.
Meditate so that You Feel Yourself More
Wisdom doesn’t come with age, it comes with your accepting growth. So make a choice to grow. When you are open to growth you allow wisdom to live within you. And when you are open to growth, you are open to your inner wisdom. We know way more than we give ourselves credit for.
Listen to your compass, that GPS system well installed inside of you. And when you do, be sure to speak to him/her. That is why I meditate. Because when I do, I feel more connected to myself. It’s like looking both ways before crossing the street, a form of checking in.
After I’ve listened to my intuition, I check in with myself to verify that things are aligned. Following some I gain so much. It not only good ol meditation, makes your own decisions easier, but it also solidifies what you already knew. When those two worlds meet the confidence finds you.
The Feeling of Making a Decision
How does your decision make you feel? I know the same things I once spontaneously did I now put thought into. I now think about my decisions and how it represents who I am, Therefore, before taking action, I evaluate myself against my decision. How will I feel as a result of this decision and how will it affect those around me?
If you’re not sure how to make the right decision, check-in. The feeling you get from that should give you a good idea of the outcome. Most of the time, the way we feel goes in line with our intuition. If that good ol feelin presents itself, you’re in for a good ride.
The way you feel is important because it dictates your new reality. It dictates how you may possibly feel after making a decision. Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t always perfect, but it prepares you for the best case scenario.
