Chapter 8 - Decision

Hill tells us in this chapter "Keep in mind the fact 
that every person with whom you associate is, like yourself, 
seeking the opportunity to accumulate money."

WOW!  That is very interesting.

So, why don't they all join us when we present them our
opportunity?

Hill answers that for us "ACCURATE analysis of over 25,000 
men and women who had experienced failure, disclosed the 
fact that LACK OF DECISION was near the head of the list 
of the 30 major causes of FAILURE."

It is easier for people to just say "no" because that to
them does not feel like a decision. People do not want to 
make a decision!

It takes effort to make a decision and then stick with it.
We are then accountable and have to do something.  We don't 
want to fail, we don't want to change, we don't want to be
criticized by our family and friends.  So "NO" is the easy
way out. If we say "no" we won't be able to fail.  Fear 
of the loss of "something" is at the head of the list.  

Hill also points out to us "Those who reach DECISIONS promptly 
and definitely, know what they want, and generally get it. The 
leaders in every walk of life DECIDE quickly, and firmly. That 
is the major reason why they are leaders. The world has the 
habit of making room for the man whose words and actions show 
that he knows where he is going.  

As Hill pointed out every person is seeking the opportunity 
to accumulate money but not all are willing to make the decision
to do anything about it.  We are looking for the leaders and
leaders are not afraid to make a decision and take action.

Jim Rohn stated "It doesn't matter which side of the fence you get 
off on sometimes. What matters most is getting off. You cannot make 
progress without making decisions."
