The Business Of Making Decisions

Sometimes in life we get served up lemons.

Whether we keep them as lemons or turn them into lemonade is a reflection on who we are and what we are thinking at that time.

That great philosopher Kenny Rogers said:

“You’ve got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em.

Know when to walk away and know when to run.”

At every moment in life there will be options and choices. Choices of doing one thing or doing another.

Or not doing anything at all.

In his book “TRUMP The Art OF The Deal” Donald Trump says:

“sometimes your best investments are the ones you don’t make.”

Life is about making the correct decisions.

Or really it’s about making more good decisions than bad decisions.

Sometimes those decisions are about purchases.

Sometimes those decisions are about investments.

Sometimes those decisions are about who you partner in business with.

And sometimes those decisions are about who you associate with.

I have found that it’s always best to associate and do business with people that you like.

Life is too short to be having to suffer insults and fools and people who always put you down or people who continuously use sarcasm when they speak.

You don’t need that sort of negativity in your life.

Robert Ringer called them  “Drain People”

Walk away from the Drain People.

You don’t need them.

You don’t need to do business with those type of people.

You don’t need Drain People as customers.

Let them go and be someone else’s customer.

Deal only with those who uplift you and inspire you.

Life is too short to be continually trying to escape from the clutches of people whose mission in life is to bring you down, either purposefully or indirectly.

Move on from them.

You don’t need to be everything to everybody.

Just be the best that you can be to the people you care most to be with, both socially and in business.

And in the words of Kenny Rogers:

“Now Ev’ry gambler knows that the secret to survivin’

Is knowin’ what to throw away and knowing what to keep.”
