How Can I Make Confident and Correct Decisions?

We can make confident and correct decisions if we have absolute knowledge of their outcome in advance, placing ourselves into it like observing the present from the future.

We thus have to anticipate and foresee the result. That is what decisions are for — the future. We picture the future state and then make the decision.

That is the golden rule of decision making: After our assessment, decision and action, the rest is up to the force of nature acting through our lives. Nature is the outcome. There is nothing to regret because the outcome was arranged from outside the boundaries of our perception and control.

After we have made the decision, we need to double-check ourselves, conclusively lock down the decision, and then act. Otherwise, every passing minute is a delay.

Assessing the decision is a necessary aspect of making the correct decision, because it should not depend on our momentary moods or various conditions. It should rather be a normal and firm decision, and we must then act on it.

After acting on our decision, we might reach the realization that we reached the wrong decision. In such a case, we have nothing else to do and no one to blame. It is very important to not blame ourselves under any circumstances.

How can we prevent ourselves from falling into self-blame? It is by attributing the entire process to the governing laws of nature acting on our every action, thought and desire.

That is the golden rule of decision making: After our assessment, decision and action, the rest is up to the force of nature acting through our lives. Nature is the outcome. There is nothing to regret because the outcome was arranged from outside the boundaries of our perception and control.

Nature thus operates on us from the get go, and we end up understanding that it was not us assessing, reassessing and deciding, but nature acted on us the entire time. We thus have nothing to regret in our lives because everything is arranged by the laws of nature that operate beyond our minds’ grasp.
