The Traveler’s Gift: Seven Secrets (Decisions) of Success

Decision 1- The Responsible Decision: The Buck Stops Here
I will accept responsibility for my past and stop blaming other people for my current situation. I am where I am today because of decisions I have made, the way that I think and the emotions I dwell on. I will strive each day to make my life a statement, not an apology. The buck stops here.

Decision 2- The Guided Decision: I Will Seek Wisdom
My past can never be changed but I can change my future by actively searching out wisdom. I will seek out wise counsel and keep only the company of friends whose lives I admire. I will develop a servant’s heart, for he who serves others will grow in wisdom. 

Decision 3- The Active Decision: I Am a Person of Action
I will change my destiny by becoming a person of action. Never again will I dwell in a pit of indecisiveness, regret and despair. Laziness is a sin and success hides from the sluggard. I will be courageous. I will lead. I choose now. 

Decision 4- The Certain Decision: I Have a Decided Heart
I will no longer wait to take steps towards my destiny. I have made a decision and I am passionate about my vision for the future. Doubt and self-pity are nothing to me therefore my thoughts will not entertain them. I do not procrastinate.

Decision 6- The Compassionate Decision: I Will Greet This Day With a Forgiving Spirit
Forgiveness only has value when it is given away. I will grant forgiveness to others, and in doing so I will release the demons of the past. Never again will I live according to the opinions of others. I will forgive myself for past mistakes. My life has just begun. 

Decision 7- The Persistent Decision: I Will Persist Without Exception
