Make Your Own Decisions


The most successful salespeople are independent thinkers. They make their own decisions and heed their own insights more than most. They trust themselves. They’re wary of people who tell them how to succeed, especially if the person with all the great advice hasn’t taken their own advice. They’re positive and upbeat, open to constructive criticism, but skeptical. The strength in making your own decisions rests on one thing — knowing and being willing to accept the consequences of your decisions. Because when you know what could go wrong and you’re willing to deal with it if you fail, fear suddenly leaves the equation. You may not like the consequences of failure, but when you stop fearing them, you suddenly become not only incredibly free to move about the world, but to succeed in it.


“The price of greatness is responsibility.” — Winston Churchill

  1. There are lots of decision making tips to be had from studying successful people because they know how to make great decisions. They choose goals and keep aiming at them, regardless of the obstacles that arise.

    1. A very successful man told me when I was just a kid in my early twenties that if I wanted to be good at anything, to study the masters who already were successful at that very thing. Great advice, Earl. Thank you.

  2. I agree with you. In any moment of decision the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.
