dollarsmDo you need to make an important decision in the face of uncertainties? Here’s a winning strategy: Many of the financial gurus on TV and the web say we’re entering a period of great uncertainty. And many recommend we take action, and adopt new lifestyles based on living on less. This can be a tough decision.W. Clement Stone, who built an insurance empire worth hundreds of millions dollars during and just after the Great Depression, had his sales staff recite the phrase, Do it now again and again at the start of each workday.

Why did this remarkable millionaire do this? Because he realized that in both good and tough times, there can be an enormous cost of putting things off while you think, plan, and analyze a situation.

Stone was pro action. He continuously reminded his staff that they were only rewarded for results-for blasting through their negative assumptions and just taking action.

Once you have enough data to make a decision, Stone would tell you to just do it-immediately. And then to take action.

Too often many people delay making decisions because they’re uncertain it is the RIGHT decision. But in times like today, not deciding on an action plan could have some very negative consequences.

The secret, when faced with ambiguity and unknowns, is to break free of the cement of fear and at least take a step in the most promising direction. If you have no data to rely on in making your decision, look to your own personal experience and intuition.

Then just keep your eyes and ears open, pay attention, and honestly analyze what’s happening. Is your decision promising? If it turns out to be the wrong one, take the most promising corrective action. Stay flexible, aware, and in action.

The remarkable self-made millionaires I’ve worked with over the past 36 years would tell you this: When in doubt, act boldly, as if it is impossible to fail.

How can they say this? Because experience has taught them that moving toward success is NOT a straight line, and failure is NOT an acceptable option. They move toward success by making a series of decisions followed by actions … and then new corrective decisions and new actions … until finally they arrive at their desired state, or something even better.

In essence, these men and women have developed the ability to cut through any confusion and focus their mind on making decisions, taking action, paying attention, and doing what then proves promising.

Can YOU actually learn to make smart, profitable decisions like self-made millionaires? YES. Absolutely. This IS a learned skill! But you cannot learn this by reading books “about” decision making. It all starts in your brain, and how its wired.

The Zen of Taking Action

You’ve probably had the experience at one time or another of feeling stuck in your life. Of just sitting in one place — unclear of how to make a decision.

How can you move forward in life when you cannot decide about the next step you need to take? Admittedly, such a lack of clarity can cause some pretty extreme stress!

It’s difficult to move forward if you don’t have clarity, since clarity of purpose often controls your ability to make a decision. Knowing what you want generates the energy to pursue it. While not knowing drains your energy.

So what can you do if you lack clarity? What are your options?

If you’re afraid of making the wrong choice, you can wait and hope for clarity. Or you can try to think your options through in your own mind.

But the truth is, you’ll never really figure life out.”In terms of life-questions”– life has a way of just resolving itself, with or without our conscious intervention or so-called decision-making! And even when we think we’ve got everything all figured out– life will seldom deliver a perfect replica of our mental picture.

One good way to conquer uncomfortable indecision is to simply make a choice from among your unknowns.

Whether or not you feel certain your choice is the “right” choice — just take a small step in what seems to be the best direction, in spite of your doubt or confusion.

There is great power in action. Movement in any direction will break you free from the cement”of indecision — and provide new information and experiences. So just make a decision and move on it.

Action sends ripples of energy and change out into the world. And since life is so totally unpredictable, who knows how your situation will change once you get some action energy”behind your decision.

You may even want to think of your life as a novel you’re reading. You’re only part of the way into the book — and you really don’t know what’s going to happen next. How could you know? The book is still being written.

The challenge you face is this: Dare you move forward in the face of uncertainty? Can you handle”taking action without knowing whether it’s the rightaction? Here’s what I’ve learned in my own roller coaster version of life: If you find you’ve stepped onto the wrong path, you can always adjust your direction.

And any so-called mistakes simply add to your personal wisdom about what doesn’t work — thus taking you closer to discovering what does work.. There is great power in action.
