One of the burning questions in people’s minds today is ‘how to make the right decisions’ or ‘how to make a decision we do not regret later’ or sometimes ‘how to know if a decision will be right or wrong’ before making it.
This obsession with right and wrong has led people to be distracted from their lives. So what is making the right decisions all about?
The first thing that you need to know is that being joyful in everything that you do is more important than always being right. Because always being right does not guarantee a happy life process. Have you noticed that as you grow up, your goals keep changing?
This happens because you get influenced by the surrounding people around you and think that what they consider great is truly something to be done in one’s lifetime. You mistake subjective opinions and approaches of people for objective facts and try to implement them in your lives as well without thinking about what it means to you.
This is the reason why many people are not satisfied with what they do, let alone being happy. And in many cases, you might have noticed that you are happy that some dream of your childhood didn’t actually come true. Because now you have a different preference.
Your Life Is Valuable
The thing to keep in mind is that your life is truly valuable. All of our lives are. It took something beyond our imagination for this world and our life energies to exist in the first place. Furthermore, to get such a body and mind after millions of years of evolution isn’t a small deal, is it?
So whenever you make a decision in life, just see if it really means something to you and will continue to do so in the future. If you consider your life valuable, then do not let it be manipulated by the limited thought processes of the people around you.
Sharing the Value
In addition to that, when you go out to do something, see if it provides something good not only to you but also to your environment and other people in it. It can be as simple as making them joyful or spreading a positive vibe.
Shaquille O’Neal, a former basketball player, said that he was able to multiply his net worth by four times by following a piece of valuable advice from Jeff Bezos. And that advice was “Make investments based on if it’s going to change people’s lives.’
He might be talking about investing money the right way, but you must invest your time and life in this way. The passion and joy you will have in doing something truly worthwhile will automatically create a positive ambiance for people.
At that stage, there is no right or wrong decision. When you are completely involved in it, the results are great! And that involvement will come only when you do something that matters to you, not something that other people say is right.
Because just see it practically, for each and everything in the world there is lovers and haters. If some people say something is right, there will be many who call it wrong. Better not to let their dilemma decide the course of your lives.
