Be decisive and accomplish more. This is my new motto now that I’m embarking on this new full-time career journey, with opportunity to be long-term. It definitely required some stepping out in faith and making decisions to pursue it, and I’m so glad I did! I’m anticipating accomplishing more this year than ever before.
So here is your belated April 8th inspiration to enjoy now and in the future!
“Whatever the problem or situation,
decision is always better
than doubt and indecision.
Become a decisive person,
and you will accomplish a lot more
with less effort.
No one learns to hear from God
without making mistakes.
Don’t be overly concerned about errors.
Don’t take yourself too seriously.
You are a fallible human being,
not an infallible god.
Learn from your mistakes,
correct the ones you can,
and continue being decisive.
Don’t fall back into a pattern of indecision
just because you are wrong a few times.
Take some action and sow the seed.
Devote a reasonable amount of time
to waiting on God.
Don’t be afraid of yourself!
You will not be the first person
to make a mistake,
nor will you be the last.
The fear of failure
keeps thousands trapped in indecision,
which definitely steals joy
and complicates life.
Don’t be afraid to make a decision–
follow through with it.
Just do it!”
–Joyce Meyer in “New Day New You”
I think some of the best take-aways from this one are to remember we’re not perfect, and will make mistakes, but as long as we keep learning from them and continue making decisions and taking action, we will be more productive and accomplish more!
So what are YOUR thoughts?
Are you a decisive person?
Do you find it easy or difficult to make decisions and follow through?
