Soul Inspiration Blog – Make a Decision

Have you ever asked yourself ‘How did I end up here’

You may be asking yourself this question if you’ve noticed a few extra kilos around the waist or if you’re in a job that is unfulfilling or perhaps you’ve asked this question about the relationship you’re in.

I know there have been moments in my life where I have asked myself this question, in many ways…how did I get here, how did my relationship get like this, what happened, just constantly questioning myself.

No matter where you are in your life you are there for a purpose. You were guided by events, situations or experiences from the universe that led you to where you are now, but ultimately it’s been the decisions you’ve made along the way.


Some people struggle to make a decision. They avoid or procrastinate, but this is also a decision to do that.

Some people are very quick at making decisions while others ponder over all the what if’s before deciding.

How do you make a decision?

I can be very quick at making decisions which can sometimes lead to buyers remorse, you know, buying that item and then you use it once and it sits in the cupboard never to be seen again. Hands up if you’ve had a similar experience.

Other times I want to know all the details and I weigh up the pros and cons before making a decision. It really depend on the situation.

I can tell you though, that, the way you make decisions, the strategy behind it is the same. The way you do one thing is the way you do everything.

There’s a thing I learnt in my NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) called STRATEGIES, it’s a tool to elicit a particular sequence of internal and external representation of experience that lead to a specific outcome or decision. So basically finding out the strategy how you make decisions.

Some people get stuck in a strategy loop when it comes to making decisions and it could take a while before they decide. This skill is particularly useful if you’re wanting to achieve a particular outcome but not sure how to do it. 

You find someone or someone’s behaviour that is worth modelling. Someone who has achieved the results you desire and model them. Find out their beliefs and values, their strategy and physiology and install this in you.

I’m a firm believer that if you want something bad enough in your life, you have to make a decision AND you MUST TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION. This is a step a lot of people neglect to do, take action.

It’s in the moments of decisions that not only shape your destiny BUT ultimately who you BECOME.

Do you want to not only lose weigh but KEEP IT OFF and live a healthy active lifestyle?
