Decisions…How They Shape Your Destiny

I believe it’s in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.  Tony Robbins

Everything that happens in your life, good or bad, began because of the decisions you  made.  I know that makes a lot of us, in fact, many of us cringe, but that is the simple truth in life.


The decisions you make today are shaping where you will be and who you will become in the future.

So, our conditions or circumstances aren’t the problem?  Really?

Yup. Really.  Your circumstances, right this second have all been shaped by you, and your willingness to make, or not make a decision.  The decisions you make every single moment of every single day, are shaping your world and creating your destiny.

Well, you might say – that sucks! And you would be right. But when you really think about it, the only thing that really sucks about it is the fact that you weren’t aware of it earlier.  The power you have to change that which sucks is right there.  All it takes is making the decision to take action.  Then, no more sucking!

You have the ultimate power within yourself to change your current circumstances.

Wanna shake it up?  Make a decision and ACT ON IT!.  Choose to change your circumstances by changing the decisions you make.  Learn to make purposeful decisions that can really impact your life, and then ACT ON THEM!

But, you say, “my situation REALLY, REALLY SUCKS! How can I possibly change that with no advantages/resources/help?

Think about this; There’s many people in this world who have no circumstance that would hold them back. Every advantage is there for them. They have no lack of money, education, connections, opportunities, etc., and yet, they fail miserably.  

Then there are many people who have come from very challenging situations and pulled themselves out of the place they are in, impacting the world with their incredible talents – they shine like a star.

Why? How? What was different about them?  


The ones who have had less than desirable circumstances and rose from them decided that they were not going to let their current situation get in the way of what they wanted to do with their lives.  They made decisions and then took action on their decisions.

It’s not the conditions of our lives that determine our destiny, but rather, the decisions we make that shape our destiny.

Where Do I Start Making Decisions?

That’s the question I asked myself when I realized I had let my circumstances take control of my life, instead of controlling my life with better decisions. Here’s a few tips to get you started:

  • The first decision you want to make is to simply make more decisions.  Tony Robbins states that the more decisions you make, the better you get at making them.  Practice that decision making muscle you have, and practice it often. Like, everyday.
  • Be aware in every decision you make that there will be consequences, good or bad, that will ensue as a result of your decision.  Learn something from every decision you make, good or bad.
  • Make every decision with purpose; know what your desired outcome is and ask yourself if the decision you are making now will bring you closer to that outcome. 
  • Be committed to the decisions you make, not just interested.  You can’t say, “I’d like to be rich”, you must commit to becoming rich. There’s a distinct difference between interest and committment. Learn that distinction. It’s called ACTION.  


No real decision has been made until ACTION flows from that decision


Are you considering the possiblilities?  It’s very exciting when you discover that you have this powerful force within you to create anything in your life, provided you DECIDE TO COMMIT and TAKE ACTION!

What could you do with your life if you really COMMITTED to and ACTED upon your decision?  


OMG! That’s huge!

DECIDE today to start making better decisions in your life, committing to them, and acting on them, and watch where it takes you!

You have the POWER!  It’s all up to you what you want to do with it.

I say, do what Nike says – “DO IT!”
