It’s human nature to try and avoid making hard decisions, but I say the toughest ones are some of the best moments in life. Every time I’ve ever had to make a hard decision, I’ve always chosen the most difficult path. And these moments have become some of the most important and best turning points in my life. They made my life far richer than I could ever have dreamed, and were responsible for quantum jumps in my self confidence and inner security.
So, now I look for those hard decision – in fact, I’m eager to take them on. They don’t come around very often, but when they do, try to appreciate them for the opportunities they can offer. The problem with though decisions is that your intellect – as well as your friends and hired expert – will always caution you to go one way, while your heart tells you to pick another way. These decisions are usually choices between money and an idea or project that you believe in – even changing your career or spending your vacation building houses for the poor. Trust your heart – that’s what it’s there for.
Never bring the problem solving stage into the decision making stage. Otherwise, you surrender yourself to the problem rather than the solution. – Robert H. Schuller
