Decision -The Mastery of Procrastination 
The Seventh Step Toward Riches

 You and I will make a decision today, and we will make a decision tomorrow, each day you and I make decisions that will shape our future and the future lives of those we come in contact with on a daily basis. Where you and I are in your lives today is the result of the decisions we made or we did not make yesterday.

 The best decision is the right decision; The second best is the wrong decision; The worst is no decision at all; It's all about taking action.

Today I understand that the forgiveness of oneself is the most important decision someone can make to open the door for success in their lives and their business and to have success with others.

 “How You Do Anything Is How You Do Everything”

 Failure is part of life, and most certainly part of business. We don't often acknowledge it, but failure is also a fundamental element of our success. Our instinct is to be ashamed of failure, maybe because we don't like how it makes us feel--humiliated, as though we have done something wrong.

Learn to shift your perspective and look at failure not as something to be ashamed of but as something valuable, when you begin to understand that it's through failure that we truly learn to succeed.  

Today be careful how you talk to yourself, because you know what? You are listening; Self-talk can be incredibly damaging, especially after a failure. Handle your self-talk and don't allow it to make you feel worthless--especially in the aftermath of a failure. Let it sting for a moment, and then do everything you can to stay positive and get back on track. Because you and I have greatness on the inside of us!

Many times Definiteness of decision always requires courage and sometimes very great courage.

You may have to make a decision to move to a new and totally different group of friends as you build your business, because here’s the thing. If you continue to grow you’ll earn your way into different crowds.  

Some people will grow with you and some people won’t. The fact that you grow and they don’t doesn’t mean you left them behind. It means that they stayed, and you decided that your contribution to the world was more important than making somebody else feel happy and appeasing somebody’s negative influence.

You and I cannot afford to be around people who are constantly distracting you from your purpose. You cannot do it. You have to focus on surrounding yourself with greatness, surrounding yourself with positivity, surrounding yourself with learners, surrounding yourself with people who are growing, surrounding yourself with people who are constantly reminding you,

“Hey, you’ve got greatness inside of you! 

What are you doing? What are you doing?” People who will grab you by the shirt and say, Stop. Stop playing small. Why are you playing so small?  You playing small is not serving the world with the best you can be!

Remember when we make a decision, we must be careful with who we share that decision with, it must be shared with someone of like mindedness, example a mastermind team, and understand this when two or more like minded men or women get together, it might properly be called the beginning of your freedom.  

A special thanks, again Michael and Linda and of course to all you contributors to  this Mastermind team who have help me to be strong in my decisions making, plus to show me that there is no retreating and how to stay laser focused by pressing into my desire to understand that no matter what it may have looked like in the beginning, in the end I will live out my purpose.


Many blessing to each one of you,
Anointed for Business

Be blessed as you are a blessing to others!

P.S.  Listen we must continue to make decisions for what we want or don’t want in our lives.
