I’ve been hearing a lot about fear-based and love-based decision making lately. Our decisions, and therefore their outcomes, are very different depending on how we make them in the first place. For instance, if you are building your own business and are nervous about making money, you are more likely to make your decisions from that place. You will take on projects that you don’t want to do, be apprehensive about spending money to grow your business and end up playing really small. BUT if you truly believe that the universe is your source, and this is for EVERYTHING in life not just business, then you will make decisions from that place, which is the opposite of fear (love). You will therefore live an authentic life doing what you love and experience abundance in the meantime.
A great way to get to this place, where you can make decisions out of love, is to feel thankful. I don’t mean just going through a mental check list of everything good in your life, but really FEEL thankful for all that you have and are on a daily basis. Think about how wonderful your life truly is compared to a lot of other people’s. Try to stay in this place and remember, the universe is your source and will bring you whatever you need to succeed in all areas of your life.
“Gratitude is an attitude that hooks us up to our source of supply. And the more grateful you are, the closer you become to your maker, to the architect of the universe, to the spiritual core of your being. It’s a phenomenal lesson.”

So imagine believing you have an unlimited supply of resources at your finger tips and knowing that you will always be taken care of no matter what. How would your decision making be different? Would you be doing something you love and following your heart? Would you really go for it and not settle for less?
