How to make tough decisions even if it is going to hurt others.

Every stage in one's life demands that one makes certain decisions in order to move to the next level. Whether it's the school one would love to attend, who to marry, the kind of work to do and so on, one would have to make a selection in one way or the order but we tend to be confused and restricted sometimes because of how we would want to please others instead of taking the bold step in doing what we deem fit.

Decision making involves the process of making choices by identifying a decision, gathering information and assessing alternatives. It is sometimes tough but know that you are not growing any younger and so whenever you come to a point as that, know that,

1. You are not living your life to please others. When we live our lives thinking we want to make someone else satisfied or happy with the kind of choices we make, we will only be deceiving ourselves because in the end, it's not going to be about them, it's going to be about whether that is what you really wanted to do and can make a life out of whatever you do and not just a living.

2. Also, they are not going to account for the kind of decisions you make at any point in time as you grow. You cannot blame anyone for what happens to you but even if you do, it only worsens the situation. Learn to take responsibility for your actions. They can only suggest to you but for the final move, be bold enough to make the right move. Sometimes you may not have it easy trying to do what you really want to do. But you don't need to give up.

Before you make any decision in life ask yourself these questions,

Am I going to look back and regret this decision I'm taking today? Will I be proud of myself I took that decision in some years to come? Is this what I want to do for the rest of my life? Will I enjoy doing this for the rest of my life?

As much as possible, give yourself some me time, analyse things carefully and identify what you have interest in and pursue that. No one will be able to determine where your interest lies best than yourself. It's not always about the money, it's about how you enjoy doing what you do and your interest in that. You are not just another entity passing by in this world trying to accumulate all the money in this world. You have a life to live. Live it out well so that when you get older you will be excited about your achievements and if all of us are going to do this, I think we would enjoy life in this world regardless the challenges. Life will be less frustrating and miserable.

Don't think it is time that is passing by, it is your life that is ticking away. Go for what you want. Don't waste your precious time, for you have a life to live.
