One of the greatest difficulties man has is to make the correct decisions. When you are faced with a certain situation that has become worse than you thought, immediately, the classic question comes to mind: “What am I going to do?” Then, you probably start asking the same question to everyone around you, hoping to find some kind of help. But the answer is much simpler than you might imagine.
Listen to advice and put it into practice, when it’s actually good, is an effective way to reduce the chances of making a mistake. The problem is knowing how to distinguish these advices. So, now you are faced with another decision: to follow or not this advice?
You may have already tried to answer this question, considering it another form of advice, which keeps you in a vicious cycle, and this is not very smart. It’s useless to try to avoid the responsibility: the weight of your own decisions will always be in your hands. Sooner or later, you will have to face them alone.
The good news is that this is exactly how you should deal with them. You evaluate the possibilities, consider the advice, but in the end, there will be only you and the two paths ahead. Therefore, the only efficient method for decision-making is the one that only you can make for yourself: neglect your feelings and use your faith.
When you use your feelings to make decisions, you lose. Feelings have the power to make something that was supposed to go right, go completely wrong. Because, through them, even what already existed, disappears. This is why you should always neglect them.
But when you use faith to decide something, you win. Faith has the power to make something go right, even when it was supposed to go wrong. Because, through it, even things that did not exist, come into existence. So, you should always use faith.
While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4.18
What you feel now, will no longer exist one day. But what you believe will happen, will not only come into existence, but also generate results that will remain forever.
When you use what is temporary (feelings), you will obtain something temporary. But when you use what is eternal (your faith), you obtain what is eternal.
The right decisions are not the fruit of luck, they are the conviction over things we hope for, despite not having seen them yet.
