One truth I have discovered is most people do not succeed in just about any endeavor because they simply do not know what they really want and why they want it. Our vision for our life is our personal compass which directs us and guides us. Without first knowing what we want we simply cannot determine what is wise to do as we move towards where we want to be in life. That is what I discussed in What Do You Want. Once we have identified what we want we are then faced with the continual challenge of staying focused on what we want and where we are going while we take the daily actions to move closer to our dreams.
Have you ever made a decision that you wound up regretting? I know I have more times than I would like to admit. I am willing to bet all of us have made decisions that did not turn out how we intended them to. Sometimes there can be serious consequences for these poor decisions we make. Have you ever looked back on that decision and thought, “How could I have been so dumb?” or “Why didn’t I see that coming?” Again, I know I have. What if I told you there was a question you could have asked that could have helped you decide differently and avoid almost any poor decision you have ever made? Would you be interested?
