What this really means is that your outcome depends on where you keep yourself on the emotional scale after you make your decision
Therefore, the most important thing is to stay lined up with emotions such as satisfaction, hope, eagerness and joy, which are at the top of the emotional scale – a place of feeling good. That is what differentiates a good decision maker, that’s what being decisive really means.
Once you get in the habit of staying in a good feeling place most of the day you will have more clarity and you will naturally become more decisive. How do stay in a good feeling place? Well, you know the answer to that is always the same – it’s about gratitude and appreciation. The more you appreciate the better you feel and everything in your life seems to work.
People who are habitually decisive tell others to be decisive and they are well meaning, because in their experience they have clarity therefore they are quick at deciding and maintaining their alignment. However, this advice can hurt those people who are not familiar with the concept of alignment. The real teaching is “line-up” then decide; lining up is more important than anything else.
When you are not lined up, you pull yourself in two different directions – you think one alternative is good and then you start second guessing yourself because of all the contradictory thoughts that fill your head. It’s Ok that that happens. What you really need is to know what to do in response. Here are the steps to follow in order to find the clarity from which to make a decision.
