How Successful People Make Decisions

As entrepreneurs we have to make literally hundreds of decisions every week, but do you find making them a breeze or do you find yourself paralysed with worry that you will do the wrong thing? Find out what Napoleon Hill discovered about how successful people make their decisions.

“Accurate analysis of over 25,000 men and women who had experienced failure, disclosed the fact that lack of decision making was near the head of the list of the 30 major causes of failure. This is no mere statement of a theory–it is a fact.”

“Analysis of several hundred people who had accumulated fortunes well beyond the million dollar mark, disclosed the fact that every one of them had the habit of reaching decisions promptly, and of changing these decisions slowly, if, and when they were changed. People who fail to accumulate money, without exception, have the habit of reaching decisions, if at all, very slowly, and of changing these decisions quickly and often.”

Quotes from Napoleon Hill’s book, Think & Grow Rich

If you are failing to make decisions quickly you are procrastinating and if you are changing your mind often soon after your decision is made, you could be self-sabotaging.

If you want the results of successful people you must model their behaviours.
