I have been reading an inspiring book by author Napoleon Hill. Below are some excerpts from his book The Laws of Success.
All my life I have had many thoughts and feelings in my head, but never really knew how to explain or define them. For me, when I read this stuff, it all makes sense. Most importantly, I live by it and practice it. The excerpt below is about making decisions, when I read it, I think about how Walt Disney and other successful people are decision makers.
“The man of DECISION cannot be stopped!
The man of INDECISION cannot be started!
make a decision to start the project.
make a decision to transform your vision into reality
make a decision to transform the mere possibilities into realities
Imagination, alone, is not enough to insure success.
define a DEFINITE PURPOSE and a firm DECISION to transform that purpose into reality.
The man of DECISION gets that which he goes
after, no matter how long it takes, or how difficult the
THE SUCCESSFUL MEN
AND WOMEN ARE THOSE WHO REACH
DECISIONS QUICKLY AND THEN STAND FIRMLY
BY THOSE DECISIONS AFTER THEY ARE MADE.
If you are one of those who make up their minds
today and change them again tomorrow you are
doomed to failure. If you are not sure which way to
move it is better to shut your eyes and move in the
dark than to remain still and make no move at all.
The world will forgive you if you make mistakes,
but it will never forgive you if you make no
DECISIONS, because it will never hear of you outside
of the community in which you live.
No matter who you are or what may be your
lifework, you are playing checkers with TIME! It is
always your next move. Move with quick DECISION
and Time will favor you. Stand still and Time will
wipe you off the board.
You cannot always make the right move, but, if
you make enough moves you may take advantage of
the law of averages and pile up a creditable score
before the great game of LIFE is ended.”
