“If you aim at nothing, you’ll hit nothing. If your goals are vague, your achievements will be vague. But if your decisions are specific, you will harvest specific results.” – Robert H. Schuller

When you make a decision, you cut off other options from bombarding your conscious mind.

By making a decision, you immediately invoke the Law of Cause and Effect.

Ralph Waldo Emerson said the Law of Cause and Effect is the law of laws.

 “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction." – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Furthermore, “The Law of Cause and Effect decrees that whatever you send into the universe comes back. The action and reaction are equal and opposite. When you understand this Law, you understand that the circumstances in your life come from the seeds you have sown.” - Sandra Gallagher

If you want a different effect (harvest), make the decision.


If you cut off all other possibilities, you are left in the vast ocean of life with a singular vessel ready to float or sink.

Now is your decisive moment as you have seriously cut off everything else.

Make it or break it.

This is very difficult for most people as vacillating is a lot more comfortable.

This action now prompts the what if scenarios that begin to prey on an individual’s mind.

This is dangerous as it creates a self-imposed lockdown.

Nothing happens.

Nothing changes.


As a result, the infamous status quo reigns.

President Ronald Reagan was once quoted saying, “Status quo, you know, is Latin for the mess we're in.”

So, if we’re in this mess, we should do everything that we can to escape this condition.

We’re not pigs that love wallowing in the mud.

Rather, we are valuable, nurturing and contributing humans that are capable of making an informed and proactive decision.

Decision time is right around the corner.

Do your homework but please make a decision to act one way or another.

Your inner self and everyone else is counting on you.


The best is yet to come.
