Decision Quotes to
Build Confidence!

Decision Quotes are a great reminder that when we take responsibility for where we are, and we make a different choice, we can be instrumental in changing our lives for the better.

Everything in our lives is a result of the choices that we have made, or failed to make. This includes the house and neighbourhood we live in, our partner in marriage, whether we've had kids or not, what we do for work everyday, and our values and habitual behaviours.

As you make the conscious choice to really look at your life, and read through these decision quotes, they will provoke thought, and increase your awareness as to what decisions may have been good or bad in your life. You can then start to make an effort on an ongoing basis to evaluateyour decisions, and the skill (or lack thereof) with which you make them.

Were you always taught to "play it safe" and not take a risk? Is there something that your heart desires to do, but you can't "reason it out" as to how it would work? Think to yourself as you read the decision quotes below, is there one specifically that resonates with me? in which case, write it out, carry it with you, and when you need to make a decision, contemplate the quote, and make the decision that feels right.

Decision Quotes Will Bring Order to Your Mind

Decision Quotes will bring order to your mind, as you contemplate them, and visualize yourself as a great decision maker.

Much worry and anxiety is caused by people mentally trying to run away from something they have made the decision to do physically, such as apply for a new job and do an interview, or go to the dentist, even though they are scared. If the decision is made to go through with whatever course of action they havedecided upon, why try to escape then mentally, and wish and hope for escape? It would be much easier to be "all in" mentally, once the decision has been made, and quit worrying about it.

Consider the known facts of your situation, contemplate the possible consequences of various courses of action, get in tune with what your "gut" or intuition is telling you, then make the decision and correct your course as required. Our decision quotes will help you keep your momentum and focus.

And more, much more than this, I did it my way"
