Decision #4: I choose courage over fear.
Like problems, fear is inevitable. But it’s not a stop sign. Fear is the most common obstacle to achieving true success and happiness. Fear tempts you to shrink from your authentic desires. It causes you to rationalize yourself out of a great idea. It leads you to pretend you don’t really want what you really want. Like problems, fear is inevitable. But it’s not a stop sign. Refuse to succumb to it.
Decision #5: I choose relationships wisely and nurture them intentionally.
Success doesn’t occur in a vacuum. You need people, and people need you. Those with a strong support system have the resources that open doors of opportunity and empower them to manage any challenge. Don’t go it alone.
Decision #6: I actively seek feedback and use it to grow.
You need people around you who tell you the truth. Resilient people know this. And even when they don’t like what they hear, they listen, process it, and ask themselves, “Is there a grain of truth to this feedback, even if it’s negative?” Be humble, and use failures and mistakes as learning tools. Put yourself around people who know more than you, and learn all you can from them.
Decision #7: I know my purpose and take daily action in the direction of my vision.
Consistency is key. If you continually take steps in the right direction, you will eventually arrive at your destination. Consistent action yields consistent results.
