Be Decisive and Accomplish More – May 2 Inspiration

at

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, but I’m so glad I did! I’m anticipating accomplishing more this year than ever before.

 

So here is your May 2 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

and double-mindedness

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”

My reflections:

I think some of the best take-aways from this one are to remember we’re not perfect, and we 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?

    Decision making is tough, but it’s better to come up with one than end up confusing yourself and other people. It love this message, it’s the perfect message to start the week with. Thank you.

    Waffling back and forth between decisions can be such a waste of time. I am a ‘make a decision and stick to it’ kind of woman

    When we do not let ourselves be hampered down by frivolous things, we get to focus more on what we want to accomplish and we actually get to finish a lot more things.

    And sometimes all you need to accomplish more is to simply move, pursue what you want, regardless of its outcome.
