Decisions decisions… We all struggle in this battle of contemplation between what’s best for us and what’s just plain destructive to our future. No matter where you are in life, you should take away two small tips from this post that will help reassure you of your life choices.
Firstly, you should start having regular conversations with your future self. We all love to have fun, whether that be attending a party or making a big purchase, but in reality there is a time for everything. That time may or not be now. For example, imagine the hardships of parenthood during young age. When you aren’t able to fully care and provide for yourself, you obviously should not attempt to add another life to the equation when possible. On another note, we all have ambitions and goals in life. Some want the job of their dreams while others simply desire financial freedom. For this instance, you will see where personal discipline comes into play. As I have been told and have passed on to friends, ask yourself where exactly do you want to see yourself in 10 years. You probably chose either health, wealth or happiness. Now that you have that image in your mind, remind yourself of it whenever you make choices in life. Literally ask the future you if they would have done what you are about to do. If not, then simply don’t do it. That could mean sacrificing that late night McDouble for better health or even to save some extra cash. Setting your life up for success starts with the small decisions that you make every day!
The last step to good decision making is to not dwell on past choices! No one is perfect and nothing is worse than dragging yourself down with your former bad choices. It has been proven that dwelling can lead to depression and nobody wants that! Instead, learn from your mistakes and find out what you can do better tomorrow. Live a life within which you are self conscious of your daily decisions. Each and every thing you do paves a new future, so be wise! Start rebuilding your future now by making these small adjustments to your mentality.
