Life Choices And How Decision-Making Skills Help In It?


Have you ever found yourself stuck while making a decision and you get stressed over it and biting your nails in tension about what is supposed to do? Well, well! you are not alone in this case, many people do find it difficult to make decisions in their life.

Decision-making, no doubt, is challenging, and it’s even more when you have poor willpower and you keep swinging from A to B option. Or simply you cant decide which option is better suited for you. You should know why you prefer one option over another and why it is better, and whether it’s for your good or bad.

 The one thing that differentiates a successful person from a nonsuccessful person is making the right description at the right time.  Some people take too long to make the right decision but life does not wait for you to make the right decisions, life will throw all your poor decision until you are pissed off. There are so many decisions that we have to make in our lives like choosing the right partner to spend life with, tho have right circle of friends and choosing the right career, how to parent a kid and so many other things that are daily norms of our life.

  In this article, we will disclose the important decisions that we have to make in our lives and how we should make better decisions.

1. Values:

We make decisions that are based on values. Values are different for every person life teaches different lessons to the persons around us. We define what matters most for you whether it is your family, money, or your job. Sometimes you have to choose between the two things without predicting which one is right or wrong. There are no hard secrets to making a decision. You can only if the decision if right or wrong after making it. The choices you make define you. You meet different people in your life and When you compare them you realize that all people are not equally important to you.

Value also means status, what your financial status is, whether you are poor, middle class, rich or belong to a luxury family. Depending on whether you are reading this information on an expensive phone or cheap phone, your dress code, represents your status and class in society. Judging people based on their status is the worst choice as I have met some of the greatest people who do not have enough money to buy food but their character and kindness make them successful.

2  Friends:

Friends and the people around you will define your future. If four of your friends are smokers, you are going to be the fifth one. There’s a popular quote about friends that you become the average of five persons around you. You may don’t have the right to choose your family, or your status, but you can change your life by hanging out with quality people.

A friend should be someone that can add value to your life when it comes to supporting you in hard times, exchanging love and waves of laughter, or growing to become a better person. You should always make friends who are optimistic about life and that have a strong motive in their life. You don’t even realize when the habits of your friends become your habits. If you see a good habit or find that this person has a good personality, make him/her your friend because you will eventually become one.

3. Job and career:

Another important decision that we have to make in our life is our career. The career choice is one of the most critical choices as many people do not what they want from life they randomly follow other people, career is something hard work combined with passion. Most people are stuck at a job throughout their life and some aspiring people switch their career choice and become entrepreneurs and run businesses. Nothing is a bad choice, your satisfaction and happiness matter in the end if you love what you are doing, then don’t try too hard on yourself and compare your life to other people around you, you have only one competitor that is your old self.

What factors are important for making good decisions in your life?

We all make decisions in our life but we do not know whether it’s a good idea or not. We are always confused and in ambiguity and sometimes we feel guilty after making a decision when it turns out to be wrong. There’s no doubt that whenever we are making a decision we consider our insecurity, fear, low self-esteem, etc.

To make better decisions in your life, follow the following tips to always come up with a good decision so that you do not have any regrets later.

  • Consider both sides of the story:

To make a good decision in your life, always visualize the outcome of the decision whether you can withstand the decision after asking it or not. If you do not have strong determination skills, you can’t figure it out on your own. You can consult with your elders or other family members or friends etc.

  • Trust your gut  feelings:

When you find yourself stuck between multiple options and can’t decide, go with your gut feelings. Analyze your inner feelings in a quiet place and listen to what your heart is saying. Research has shown that gut feeling is most of the time found to be true. Trust your gut when it’s telling you something is wrong with the person. 

  • Align your priorities and core values to make your decision:

Your priorities and core values help you in making a better and good decision. Figure out the things which matter most to you, make a clear list of your core values and make the decision that aligns with your core values.

Final Thoughts:

Your willpower, grit, and internal intuition, better analysis skills help you in making a better decision. If you don’t have these skills, then it can be part of your personality if you work on it, it comes with reading, practicing, and executing it. The passion, perseverance, and strong self-determination skills are guts to make you a better decisive person. The better you analyze the situation and the more knowledge you have about the consequences of both sides, the better you will make decisions. Don’t be hard on yourself, if you make a wrong decision because sometimes things do not work in your favor, in that case, accept the situation as it is because the worst decisions can teach you the biggest lesson of your life, learn to move on with it.
