So you’re thinking of making some major life decisions.
The problem is… making hard decisions means you often have to overhaul your life.
It can be sketchy and there could be lots of sacrifice involved.
I’ve had many people ask me, “Joe, should I do it… should I not?” and it all depends…
In this blog post I’m going to explore all the possibilities to help you make those major live decisions.
Making Hard Decisions…
When it comes to making hard decisions it’s really just comes down to one thing and that’s taking action. Are you willing to take action after you have decided on your decision?
What do I mean?
Well, I’m going to give you a couple examples of some questions I get… this will help give you a better understanding of what I mean.
One question I get often is, “should I ditch my negative friends?” and It depends…
Let’s just say your current group of friends right now are unmotivated, unconscious, and they’re bringing you down. Should you actually ditch them?
If’ you’re willing to ditch your friends and follow that up by doing massively positive things for yourself. Stuff that involves YOU to get closer to your dreams and to make space for other cool people to come into your life…
… Then yeah, I would say DO IT.
However, the easiest part of this equation is ditching your friends and not following up to make any solid changes. Changes that will improve yourself to allow cool people to come into your life.
So when people ask me this question I know that they’re massive benefits to it because many people including myself had to do it…
But I also know that the majority of people will only do the easy part of cutting out their friends. They won’t follow through with the harder part of trying to improve their lives.
So what I would say to you is…
If you’re actually deciding to cut off your current friends because they’re constantly disappointing you… I would just stop chasing them down.
I would stop trying to convince them to go places with you, or to move forward in the world with you etc. They might say they want to move forward in the world but they actually don’t.
By doing this… it will create space for new people to come into your life… but you must take action.
What about quitting school to start a business?
When people ask me this question I always say to 90% of people to finish your education.
Dropping out of school to get a skill is great… But If you’re actually going to drop out of school and not follow up by getting a skill… then don’t drop out. Don’t be crazy, go finish your degree.
If you think you could execute by learning a new skill that would aid you… what I would say is…
…finish your degree while working very hard.
Try not to get into too much debt because there is way too much debt being handed out in the current school system. While you’re in school try to learn a skill that will aid you in your future endeavors.
For me what college does is… it basically guarantees you into the middle class. But even still… in this day and age graduating from a good college doesn’t guarantee you a job.
With that being said….
… as an experiment write down on your resume that you already graduated from your college and go try and apply for good jobs for a month. See if you can land a good job.
If you can’t get a good job then you know that going back to school and getting a degree won’t help you.
… If you’re willing to hustle like I did and put all of your energy and focus into learning a skill set… then school is probably not that important for you. You could probably do better without it.
Just make sure you plan ahead, and take MASSIVE amounts of action.
At the ending of the day…
The majority of difficult decisions comes down to you taking action. Are you going to follow through? Are you going to be commitment?
Should you end a relationship because you’re not really happy with where things are going and you think you might be able to do better?
Well, the same thing applies…
If you end the relationship… improve yourself by doing massively positive things for yourself. Eat healthy, work out, read good quality books, put yourself out there to meet other people, etc.
Don’t end the relationship if you’re not going to follow up because if you do… you will just attract the same quality people and you will be in the exact same situation as your last relationship.
So always take action and follow through.
