Decisions Are Important Only When You Follow Through With Action

Decisions mean nothing if you don’t take steps to implement them

I wanted to change myself more times than I’d like to admit. I decided to overhaul myself completely and become the best version of myself. Exactly how many times I made decisions to change myself, I don’t remember.

But I do remember I didn’t follow through with my actions most of the time. I made those decisions on the spur of the moment. They meant nothing.

Why would they?

Decisions are effective when followed through with actions. If you don’t do what you decided to do, then your decision means nothing. It’s just an empty promise you made to yourself.

Your decisions need to be more than empty words. If you don’t mean what you say, you shouldn’t say it at all. When you make a decision but don’t follow through with action, you lose your credibility. Even people lose their respect for you when they see you can’t keep your words. Not even the ones you gave to yourself.

When I saw making decisions wasn’t working for me until I did what I said I would, I changed myself. I made the decision to only make the decisions that I’ll follow through with actions.
