how to make decisions

Hidden Secret to Success #8 – Direction Determines Destiny

We all want to reach our full potential, but is the direction we’re following helping or hurting us realize that destiny? You see, when it comes to destiny, how to make decisions is everything!

Or to put it another way, direction determines destiny. The direction you’re following will either lead you to success and significance or take you down the path to failure and loss. Jim Rohn said it best: “Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines practiced every day. And failure is nothing more than a few errors in judgment repeated every day.”

So what life habits are you forming? Are they leading you towards your dream destiny or are pulling you away from it?

In episode 073 of The Live It Forward Show, Kent Julian talks in-depth about how direction determines destiny and how every choice we make, makes us.

3. Who Am I?

I am your constant companion,
I am your greatest helper or your heaviest burden.
I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.
I am at your command.
Half of the tasks that you do you might just as well
Turn over to me and I will do them quickly and correctly.

I am easily managed,
You must merely be firm with me.
Show me exactly how you want something done;
After a few lessons I will do it automatically.
I am the servant of all great people and
Alas, of all failures as well.
Those who are great I have made great,
Those who are failures I have made failures.

I am not a machine, but I work with all the precision
Of a machine, plus the intelligence of a person.
Now you may run me for profit or
You may run me for ruin.
It makes no difference to me.
Take me, train me, be firm with me,
And I will lay the world at your feet.
Be easy with me and I will destroy you.

Who Am I?
I Am Called HABIT.
