Life changing decisions
Life changing choices and decisions
Life offers you various options, and it’s up to you to make the right choices. The decisions you take can change the trajectory of your life; they can provide you opportunities for success or mar your chances of living a fulfilling life.
Tony Robbins said it right, “It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.”

Here are five life changing decisions that can change the course of your life.
1. Stop drifting and live meaningfully
A journey makes sense when you’re headed in a direction. Similarly, your life will be meaningful when you’re moving towards a higher purpose.
There are scores of people who feel lost in life because they are aimless, purposeless, and directionless. Drifting without a worthwhile goal will never give you a feeling of accomplishment or fulfillment.
There’s a time in life when you need to take a decision and make a tough call about what you want to do with your life, which field or area you want to excel in, and what passion you wish to pursue.
Those who take the right decision at the right time and set eyes on their target go on to achieve tremendous success and soar to greater heights.
Goals not only give you a path to tread on but also allow you to bring out the best in you, realize your dreams and make your life meaningful.
“A meaningful life is one in which you deeply connect to your purpose. A person living life with purpose is a hero who gets up every day with a clear sense of who they are and what they are doing in the world.”
— Wayne Mellinger
2. Quit making peace with mediocrity
Accepting mediocrity and settling for an average life when you know you have more within you and are destined for greatness is a cardinal sin.
“Anyone in any walk of life who is content with mediocrity is untrue to himself.”
— George S. Patton Jr
A person becomes mediocre not because they don’t have the ability or the capability to excel but due to the lack of ambition and drive.
It doesn’t take much to get by in life. You can put yourself on autopilot mode, make peace with the average and spend your entire life. But that is not what you were born to be. Like Colleen Hoover said, “A life of mediocrity is a waste of life.”
You must not be okay with mediocrity because you’re capable of doing better in life. You might not be a genius, have everything going for you, but you are capable of putting in your best efforts and getting to the next level.
Your life will turn around the moment you decide to refuse being mediocre. Raise the bar higher for yourself and expect more out of you.
When you commit to excellence and resolve to put in focused hard work, you’ll get remarkable results. Letting go of mediocrity and dedicating your life to the pursuit of excellence will open floodgates of success and happiness in your life.
3. Develop a problem-solving mindset
Life is full of problems. No matter who you are or what field you are, you’ll regularly face problems and meet challenges.
If you let your problems bother you, they’ll overwhelm, cause significant stress in your life, lead to procrastination, and can therefore come in the way of achieving your goals.
“If you choose not to deal with an issue, you give up your right of control over the issue, and it will select the path of least resistance.”
— Susan Del Gatto
Instead of fearing your problems, grumbling, or complaining about them, cultivate a mindset of looking at the issues with a positive attitude.
No problem is big or complicated if you’re determined to solve it. You may not be able to reach the perfect fix, but if you give it time and work on it, you’ll surely be able to figure out the best possible solution and find the way forward.

4. Let go of what people think
The majority of your life’s troubles are people-related: what will others think, what will they say, how will they judge you, and if they will approve your actions and behavior.
If only you could get rid of the outside noise and tune within, you would be able to focus much better on your life and tend to your priorities.
“Care about people’s approval, and you will always be their prisoner.”
It’s never too late to put yourself in the priority zone and stop bothering about others. This one decision of yours — to stop acknowledging and responding to what others say — can dramatically turn your life around.
You’ll no longer worry about getting other people’s permission or approval before taking up anything. You can make follow your inner compass, independent choices, do what you want, and live life by your rules without sweating over how you are being perceived on the outside.
Letting go of the burden of other people’s opinions is genuinely liberating and gives you a sense of control over your life.
5. Focus on personal development
Life is not all about completing to-do lists, boosting productivity, and learning tips to work faster. The real essence of life is to become the person you are capable of being. And that’s possible only when you focus on self-growth and personal development.
Making a decision to better yourself and committing to self-improvement will fast-track your success and take you places.
No matter how busy you are, take time out for personal development. Every day learn something new, pick up a positive habit, kick out a bad habit, work on your blind spots, communicate better with others, and hone your skills.
There’s no limit to how much you can imbibe if you develop a growth mindset and put yourself in the learning mode.
Investing in self-development will help you develop your capabilities and live a happy and fulfilling life, knowing you’re unleashing your true potential and being your best self.
“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
— George Bernard Shaw

From small, inconsequential things to significant decisions, you have the power to decide the course of your life.
If you want to achieve your goals and set yourself up for massive success, start living intentionally, dare to take the right decisions, and make choices that will empower you to change the trajectory of your life.
“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”
