Are we decision makers?

Post by w_ch on Mon Dec 28, 2009 9:06 pm

Hello,

A teacher of mine once told me life is all about making decisions.We must know when to say "yes" and when to say "no" to the different proposals that life is repeatingly offering us.Sometimes we are given no more than one second in which we are to take a decision that will probably effect the rest of our lives.It is an abilility that may strenghten our self-confidence and may also increase our self-esteem.So,the question is,are we decision makers? If not,what are the steps should be taken to achieve this high level of firmity?

I'm waiting for your answears,comments,and even quetions in case you have any.

Thank you and read you soon!

nice topic bro but I think this depends on the personality of the decision maker sometimes it will be wrong as well as sometimes it will be true . There r some prefer to ask others b4 making a decision . But 4 me no I prefer to make a mistake nd learn from it better than ask others . In addition there is ( salat l'istikhara) which I can ask GOD .

Yes, I do believe everything in life is about decision making! It's not always obvious but every second "B" is affected by the decision taken in the preceding second "A". Some decisions are serious, others are minor but it's always about decisions. We never know if it's a good one or not but when it's according to God's directions. May be we should take more time when making a decision. Even when you don't take a decision, that is your same decision.

Thank you W_ch for this topic

[ Nowadays we see many people attaching all the "failure" and the decline oi, the world to the decline of morals and ethics ,in fact, its not the lack of morals that is ruining the world its rather the unability of people(not only the leaders)to make decision.and i dont think that the ability to make decision
which trenghtens our self confidence yet its rather the other way a round because if we are confident enough in our capacities and abilities and in the way throught which we envision the world around us, i think it will be easy for us to analyse any situation and make a decision that we will assume its results.However this doesnt imply that we shoudnt hesitate,sometimes delaying making a decision is the right decision( but not so much as hamlet did)[/font]][/font]

It's is not a weakness in your personality not to make decisions BELINDA the problem is we are always afraid of the future since it is obscure to us and of the conseconses of our choices i mean to have a wrong decision sometimes will afect your life OR the path of it.I do ask for advise as well.

Hello,
Well it's a nice topic W_ch thank you, our life is always based on making decision. for me i always do what i want if i want something i say "yes" if not i say "no" but most of the time befor taking a decision i have to ask someone i don't know may be as my friend Bilinda said it is a weakness in my personality but i do care so much to the others opinion, and of course i always do what i see it good for me.

Do you know a channel called decision makers? I've never really saw what's going on there but I thought there might shed some light for this topic It seems we all agree that WE (clown we not queen we ) all agree that we are decision makers, everybody is a decision maker of his own. I agree with most members who mentioned that decision making is not at no charge from external and internal powers.

Of course that we are decision makers. I believe that every thing in our life depends on the decision we have to take. Every day ,from the first second we wake up till the moment we go to bed, we take decisions, some are minor like what to wear this day, but others are so serious for they can change our life and for which we have to think deeply before making a decision.

To echo the others, life is all about making decisions. For me, it isn't always easy to decide for at times it's really difficult to choose and know it is the proper choice you made. How frustrating it is when facing important matters that you have to choose the right one! It certainly requires great confidence and strength from the part of the decision maker.

Most of the time I seek the other's advice, but I take none at the end only if it's my mother's. I choose what I want, what makes me comfortable the moment I take my decision. And though my mind fills with "what if…" and boggles afterwards, I admit it is better than letting another person make decisions for us. Allah knows best what's good for us and what's bad, therefore it's always better to seek his guidance.
May Allah guide us to the right path.

Even babies are decision makers, sometimes when a baby chooses the bottle feeding rather than his mother's milk bébénou he doesn't know it's the wrong choice! gestounet

Hello everybody.You are absolutely right Ezinma.Each one in this life is going to face big matters and he/she has to decide. No matter what the result will be right or wrong, making decision is the great achievement.

Hello, first of all i want thank you about the nice subject.
I found that your question is philosophical, made me remember saying " ARE WE FREE OR NO IN THIS LIFE? " .As we know, humans live in collections. And maybe, or sure your desicion will influance on the others, and in this case we can't take decision alone, and we should Discussing the matter with our partners.
Whereas, we need make self-decision , when it will be something concer the person alone.
In my opinion, sometimes we must make self-decision and sometimes we must ask our friends, mates, lovers, parents...etc etc to help us in making decision.
i hope that i understood your question.

well,i think is an important question because it gives us more information. as i know this decision depends on the personality of the person so we are who take our decision but with a control of our god because allah created us and also he is the responsible of our decision.

Hello Everybody...

Well.. Before giving my opinion, I really would like to THANK
you for this wonderful post dear w-ch.... I Really Really Really Liked it

So, for me personally, Life has always been about making decisions.


Infact, Life is the sum of all your choices and decisions!!!

Wether you like it or not, you will always find yourself infront

of diffrent situations which will all the time guide you and

oblige you in the meantime to take decisions !!!!

And even when you have to make a choice and don't make it,


that is in itself A choice as Hush has already said.

When one bases his life on principle....... 99% of his decisions

are already made !!! especially when you know that your

values are involved.

Just remember that in a minute there is time for Decisions and

Revisions.....

Always Yours,
Mary

I strongly believe that every step we take in this life, however small, is an act of making a decision. However, we need to make a distinction between choice and decision. The former is about what your hearts wants and desires, while the latter is the thing that must be done regardless of what your heart tells you. That being said, no one ever knows if the decision they have made was right or wrong until they see the outcome. It's true we should rely on Allah in everything but I think that he didn't give us minds for nothing. No matter what result comes from the decision, it is useful. If the decision was right, then you did the right thing and if it was wrong, then there's surely a lesson learnt from it.
