CHAPTER 8  -  DECISION

After learning that lack of decision is near the head of the list of the 30 major causes of failure, I knew I was in big trouble.  I have

never been a big decision maker.  Someone else in my life has always made them for me and I just went along with it.  When you

are young, someone has to make them for you because you are a little kid and you need guidance, but as you grow, you should

start to make your own.  Well, that never happened to me.  My Mom made my decisions when I was little and then my teachers 

made them for me through school and then my boss made them for me when I went to work, then my husband made them for

me when I got married.  I don't even know how to make a decision!!!  I am here to tell you THAT IS GOING TO CHANGE!

 

The first thing I started to work on was to stop letting the opinions of others matter so much to me.  The second thing I started

to work on was my self confidence, I had none, the third thing is to realize that I have a brain and I need to use it.  It wasn't

too hard to learn to keep my mouth closed and my eyes and ears open, I don't speak up much, never have.

 

Mentoring For Free is helping me with all my flaws and I am feeling more confident and I'm not paying so much attention to

what other people think or say and I am feeling better about making a decision on my own.  I still need to work on opening

my mouth and speaking up on the calls.  All of this is a process and I know I won't wake up tomorrow morning and be this 

ultra-confident, could care less what anybody thinks, Chatty Kathy who will make decisions in a split second, BUT ........

I will be.

 

I love you all, thank you so much for believing in me until I truly believe in myself.
