Do you know when you’ve made the right or wrong decision?
When making the simple decisions in life we find it easy to recognize when we’ve made the right or wrong one. Say you chose to wear a dress to work one day. Then, you step outside and it’s freezing out. You know you made the wrong decision. You decide to tell your co-worker what you think of their new haircut. They smile and thank you.
Do you make the right decision when you feel scared?
Just because you feel scared does not mean that you are making the wrong decision. More often than not, it’s a sign you are in fact making the RIGHT decision because that fear is going to push you to grow.

Do you own the decisions you make?
Decisions are not always the result of thoughtful contemplation. In fact, some of them are made on impulse alone.

Be willing to own the decisions you make.
