Priya Johnson
We're constantly bombarded with choices we need to make on a momentary basis. Like it or not, our choices have a big impact on our lives. Learning to make good choices in life is imperative to leading a fulfilling life.

Figure Out What You Want

It’s important to know yourself, your dreams and desires. Make choices that will get you closer to your dream. Choose to do things that make you happy.

Ignore Unsolicited Opinions

Don’t let others make decisions for you. Pay heed to the advice offered by your family and friends, but make sure the choice is yours alone.

Weigh the Consequences

What makes a decision good or bad is the consequence that follows a particular choice. Always weigh the pros and cons before making a choice.

Own Your Life

Indecisive people don’t like to take their own decisions because they love blaming others if things go astray. Learn to take ownership of your life.
