One of the most important skills for an entrepreneur is decision making. Lack of quick decision making is one of the main causes of business failure.

Successful entrepreneurs learn the skill of making definite decisions quickly, changing their decisions slowly, and then getting into action quickly.

Struggling entrepreneurs have the opposite habit. They procrastinate and make decisions very slowly, then change their mind so quickly and frequently that they don’t get into the action and momentum required to succeed. They are easily influenced to change their mind and follow a different path or a different teacher. They will listen to other people’s opinions instead of following their own inner wisdom.

Does that sound like you? If you allow yourself to be too easily influenced by others, and to procrastinate on making decisions, you will not succeed. You may need to gather some facts and information from others, but the ultimate decision lies with you.

Cultivate the habit of having a mind of your own. Trust your intuition and inner wisdom to guide you in making the right decisions for you and your business.

Here’s something you can do right now to stop procrastinating. Make a list of all the decisions you need to make, both big and small. Tap into your intuition or wise self and jot down your answer to each decision quickly. Make a definite yes or no answer, and start trusting that it’s the right answer for you. Go with it, and get into immediate action on your “yes’ decisions. Your success will be practically guaranteed!
