How to make those big decisions

Today I am going to be talking about how you can help purify your thoughts and solidify your actions. So I am sure we all go through this at some point in our life, when we are trying to make a big decision in our life and we are not sure if its correct. Usually we spend so much time thinking if this is the right thing to do for us or deciding if it will turn out how we see it. Many of us just think about what we want to do while forgetting the big question. The “WHY”.

We are all so enwrapped with our next step that we sometimes can forget that solidifying our reasoning can help us follow through with our decisions. If the reasoning is strong enough then the urge to get started will also propell you even further. As knowing WHY you are doing something is better than you just wanting to complete a task just because. An example of this would be taking the garbage out to the curb so the garbage man will take the trash and dispose of it properly. Now many of us probably reluctantly do it because its garbage day or your significant other/parent is telling you to take it out. We’ve all been there and acted annoyed when were being told to do it but if we just thought about it differently and explained to ourselves WHY we need to do this, then you’d have a legitimate reason that you should take the garbage out. Mine was “well I need to take the garbage out otherwise its gonna overflow and the smell is just gonna get worse, also raccoons are gonna come back and make a mess.” That alone was enough for me to try and make sure I took the trash out happily.

Based on the last example every important action can be solidified with the right intention. If you know the intention as to why you want to make a career change or why you are looking for a soul mate or why you want to make a big purchase that will one, make you more confident in your decision. Second, it will also help reduce the stress you feel because you will not be wondering if this is the right thing for you. Thirdly, you will be able to build off of that reasoning as you go through with the task as you will find more reasons confirming your intentions along the way. Don’t get me wrong I understand that with ever decision there is the good and the bad that comes with it. If you have a strong enough reasoning/intention the bad may not seem to beat out the good as much. Plus, if you are sacrificing anything like less income because you are in school or heartbreak because you are putting yourself out there to find the ONE at least you will know WHY you are doing this.

I do think that making sure you understand that really digging deep to really find out WHY you are doing something is very important. Purest intentions can help build a strong foundation for your action that way you will never second guess yourself or wonder if this is really for you. Understanding that having intentions that serve others is the best way to strengthen your reasoning as doing it to benefit others, whether it be your family, friends or your future clients makes completing it that much more pure. Then creating intentions to help yourself is also a pure intention as it could be to make yourself healthier. Although it is for yourself it will help with your mental health or even make you feel happier. Build a stronger body and mind as it will help you function better as a human being and contribute more to society. Having wavering or weak reasonings can cause you to second guess yourself or even lead you to failing. An example of a weak reason/intention would be me taking out the garbage just because my significant other is telling me to. As I am doing it because someone else is telling me to do it, not because I believe it is the right thing. Its different if you are doing it because you care about that person and it is important to them. That is an example of a strong intention.

I hope this helps you and allows you to get through those tough questions that you may ask yourself someday. Thank you so much for reading.

Stay happy, Stay healthy, Keep breathing
