Andy Andrews I Have A Decided Heart

Andy Andrews Mastering the Seven Decisions
I have a decided heart.

In celebration of the upcoming release of his newest book, Mastering The Seven Decisions, we are revisiting Andy Andrews and the seven decisions that determine personal success from his classic book The Traveler's Gift.

Today we are talking about decision number four: I have a decided heart.
How often do you find yourself failing to make a decision because you are feeling fearful, doubtful, or worried about the decision and so opt for the status quo?
And how does that typically work out for you? Have you found you missed out on some terrific opportunities or experiences?
Did you know that most of the regrets people have are over things they didn't do -- in other words over decisions they didn't make?
Courage is the ability to act decisively in spite of your fears. So strive to be courageous and be decisive based on the information that you do have. Decide based on what your intuition and instincts are telling you. Learn to trust them.
Be decisive. Decisiveness and commitment to the decision is a common trait of all successful people. So choose to be successful by being decisive and then commit to making that decision right.
In Andy Andrews' book Traveler's Gift, David Ponder recieves the fourth decision of personal success from Christopher Columbus. "I have found that it is better to be alone and acting upon the truth in my heart than to follow a gaggle of silly geese doomed to mediocrity."
Your decisivenes ... the clarity and conviction to your decisions regardless of setbacks and circumstances ... is what determines the effectiveness of your actions.
Here's a video from my wealth creation newsletter series in which I reflect on the Andy Andrews' fourth decision, I have a decided heart.
