Chapter 8 - Decision
Everyone here made the decision to join a company and create
additional income from home. We also made the decision to join

Newt Gingrich told us "If you live your life as a hostage to everybody

have to spend a lot of time in pain."
The pain, if we listen to others, is not knowing what to do. Do we

Robert H. Schuller tells us how to not have the pain when he stated;
"Never bring the problem solving stage into the decision making
stage. Otherwise, you surrender yourself to the problem rather

Caroline Kennedy said "When you make the right decision, it doesn't
really matter what anyone else thinks."
When we really understand this, and own it, we can then make the right
decisions about what we are going to do about our business, our personal life
and any other area in our lives. We then become "emotionally free"
and "10 foot tall and bullet proof."
Herbert V. Prochnow tells us "There is a time when we must firmly choose
the course which we will follow or the endless drift of events will make the
decision for us."
