Every decision you make is moving you closer or further from your goals

“Every decision you make will either move you closer to or further away from your goals” -Peter Brown, Fisique Body Transformations.

Young Woman Making a DecisionI catch up with Peter Brown on a regular basis. Peter is a ‘body transformation specialist’ who loves to help his clients get what they want. I have known Peter long enough to tell you, he practices what he preaches.

Make good decisions and turn those decisions into habits.

I know Peter’s decision to wake up 2-3 hours before most people is not for some. His decision to make a substantial amount of his food raw fruit and vegetables might not be as appealing as the processed crap most of us eat.

I won’t even start on his decision to work hard at the gym often enough to maintain a six pack!

I can tell you this… Peter didn’t start where he is now. Nobody starts at the top.

If you want to be successful in anything, you need to start making decisions that are consistent with your definition of success. If you want more money, you need to make a decision to either seek a higher income, find another source of income or spend less money. This might start with a decision to make an instant coffee this morning, instead of buying one.

If you want to become an expert in your field, you might need to get up early and go to that breakfast meeting, produce meaningful content or work on your personal communication skills. If you want to write a book for example, make a decision to set aside an hour today and start writing. It’s a small decision that will move you closer to success.

Find a mentor who is today, where you want to be tomorrow and copy their decisions. Whatever you want to achieve, you will probably find someone who has done it before. If not, you might find a mentor who has done something similar or works in a related field. Find someone who inspires you and ask them how they would do what you want to do.

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when you first set your goals. After all, you haven’t made a single decision or taken action towards it.

What small decisions can you make today, which will move you closer to your goals? You will make some mistakes. Learn from them and keep moving. Most single decisions will not make or break you. It is consistency that wins in the end.

“It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives. It’s what we do consistently” –Tony Robbins, entrepreneur, motivational speaker and author.
