“In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next to best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.”— Theodore Roosevelt: was the 26th President of the United States
We all face major decisions from time to time. Many times, when these decisions come up, we aren’t sure of which decision is the correct one so we avoid them or put them off. When we do this we let fate decide what happens to us and lose control of the direction of our lives. This will lead to a feeling of helplessness, a lack of direction and possibly even depression. Therefore, it is extremely important that we take control these major decisions, whether we know the correct action or not, in order to maintain control of our lives. To do this, practice by making choices every time you are faced with a decision no matter how small it is, even if you don’t think you really have a preference. This will get you into the habit of making decisions and will make it much easier with a large decision when it comes up. This way, you choose your destiny rather than letting someone or something else choose your destiny for you. You’ll find that if you do this on a regular basis, even with small decisions, you will feel much more in control of your life and you will be much happier.
