The decision making overview outlined below is a sneak peak of what my future posts will entail.

Decision 1: Work

School ranks first above all else if you are still in school.  After you graduate, as long as you do not have a spouse and children, your job comes first.

You have to deal with:

  • Politics
  • Gossip
  • Performance
  • Boss
  • Deadlines
  • Labels
  • Finances

DO WHAT YOU KNOW IS RIGHT

The education path that you choose will inevitably decide your fate of the level of job you will be able to apply for.

If you are already in the workforce, it is never to late to go back to school or get that extra training you need to get that promotion you keep getting passed up for.

Decision 2: Friends

Would you rather have a hundred people you hang out with or two best friends that you can trust with your life?

Some people find it easy to make friends – for many it is a struggle (I am one that struggles)

Finding GOOD friends is hard:

  • Do not fit in
  • Judged based on our body or appearance
  • Move a lot
  • Drama
  • Cliques (disgust me)

I have numerous close friends but not hundreds upon thousands like some people I know. In a friend, I need:

  • Trust
  • Reliable
  • Competent
  • Loyal
  • Supportive
  • Positive

Talk about extremely high standards – not really but extremely hard to find! I am too picky I guess.

Decision 3: Boss

The problem with bosses is how we see them in our minds.

They’ll always be there, see them are your support system!

Decision 4: Dating & Sex

Make the decision right now as to whether or not if or when you will have sex with your partner. Stick to that decision!

People who sleep around receive less respect from the opposite sex.

The divorce rate is so high because people are in lust, not in love.

You think you love someone, but in reality you just love having sex with them. Big difference.

You will have to deal with their personality once the heat dies out, so why not build a solid foundation first so the relationship lasts.

Decision 5: Addictions

There is a difference between and addiction and a habit.  A habit you quit on your own. An addiction you need medical support so your body does not shut down and die.

  • Alcohol
  • Heroin
  • Crystal Meth
  • Cocaine

People say they have addictions to tobacco but it is a habit.  A very, very hard habit to quit.

Before you start smoking or chewing, talk to someone who has been doing it for over a decade, they will tell you not to do it.

Their not hypocrites, their helping you not become them!

Decision 6: Self-Worth

Stop comparing yourself to:

  • Models
  • Celebrities
  • Professional Athletes
  • People On TV

Models are not that attractive, trust me!!

  • Make Up
  • Photoshop
  • Lighting
  • Camera Angels

The sexiest women I know are more self conscious about their looks than people who should be!

STOP COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHERS
