Hidden Side of Decision Making
Every now and then we stop and think for a moment why we are where we are. Sometimes it is because something great is happening in our lives but most of the times such thought processes occur when we are in a not so good situation that we wish never happened.
When people look back to understand what has led them to the present circumstances, more often than not, they are trying to find a reason caused by something or somebody else. This book will attempt to show that in 99% of the cases, people are where they are because of the decisions they have made. Very rarely it is the other way around. By decisions made I do not only mean the things people decided to do or not do to but also the things they “unknowingly” allowed to occur or not to occur.
When we make or do not make something happen, it is a decision. One can argue that this may not necessarily be labeled as such but no matter how you put it — every single time in your life you do or do not do something and whether you think about it or not, you make a decision. And by making this decision, you “accept” a certain number of circumstances that will or can potentially come up in the future because of this decision. The tricky part here is that in most cases such thoughts do not even go through people’s minds and that is exactly what this book will try to convey.
