Chapter 8 Decision


The Seventh Step toward Riches

The definition of Decision is a conclusion or resolution reached after consideration.

Napoleon Hill States in this Chapter the importance of making a decision

You will have an opportunity to test your capacity to reach quick and definite DECISIONS when you finish reading this book, and are ready to begin putting into ACTION the principles which it describes.

Analysis of several hundred people who had accumulated fortunes well beyond the million dollar mark, disclosed the fact that every one of them had the habit of REACHING DECISIONS PROMPTLY, and of changing these decisions SLOWLY, if, and when they were changed. People who fail to accumulate money, without exception, have the habit of reaching decisions, IF AT ALL, very slowly, and of changing these decisions quickly and often.

In life we always make decisions even when we decide not to make a decision we have still made an decision. Even If We Procrastinate we have made a decision to not make a quick and concise decision.

Once we make a decision, we must become obstinate and refuse to change our opinion or our chosen course of action. Many will hear your vision and try to change your mind. but we have to be stern in our decision making about our life, Because it's ours. We Should not let any one change our mind by their opinions and their thoughts because it theirs not ours.

Hill  States That many fail to accumulate MONEY because they are easily influence by the opinion of people and the Newspapers. (Which is also the Televised News and Social Media in our day today. ) 

The People Close to you will be the your biggest critics. In the book Hill states this very fact.

People will wish you well while hoping you fail.

Close friends and relatives, while not meaning to do so, often handicap one through “opinions” and sometimes through ridicule, which is meant to be humorous. Thousands of men and women carry inferiority complexes with them all through life, because some well-meaning, but ignorant person destroyed their confidence through “opinions” or ridicule.

You have a brain and mind of your own.


,and reach your own decisions.

If you need facts or information from other people, to enable you to reach decisions, as you probably will in many instances; acquire these facts or secure the information you need quietly, without disclosing your purpose.

The Fact that he said " You have your own Mind use it." So what others think about me and my decisions; are my business not anyone else's when it come to my success. I have made the decision to cut nay sayers out of my life and all negative people to stay away from me, And I feel good about that decision. 

Today I went out in the field with my business partner. we were able to build a partnership with one of the colleges and get connected with new part of our spiderweb of networking. I  felt good about this decision. Because I will not let procrastination or illness be an excuse for me. Because when I can I will. When I am unable to get out I still will. Here in this mastermind group I learned not to focus on weaknesses but on Strengths. So thank you Mentor for free. 


When you make the right decision, it doesn’t really matter what anyone else thinks.
