5 Steps for making educated decisions

5 Steps for making educated decisions

– Many people don’t take
bigger action in their business because they feel discouraged. And often they’ve never been taught how to make decisions, educated decisions. And so I would like to
teach you how to do that. Because otherwise many times you’re stuck. When we were, so I did
the, what we’ll call the leverage Q&A this morning. And couple of the questions were around. How do I know when it’s time to hire? I need to hire somebody to take over the day-to-day of my business. How do I know it’s time? Because I’m not sure I have the money. And I said, well we need to
make a decision around this, and there are ways you can find the money. But first, the decision must come. And so I want to share with
you my five step process for making educated decisions. Playing a bigger game in your business usually involves money, doesn’t it? Wouldn’t be convenient if it didn’t? Use this for any situation,
whether it’s finding an admin, getting somebody to do your branding, getting mentorship,
maybe you can, if this, if you’re not sure how to make a decision about how to join this, maybe
you can use it for that. If you’re looking to bring somebody on who is a second in command in
your business, whatever it is. Buy, you know, getting
a lease for your office, wherever you need to think about can you afford something
or not, you can use this. So number one. Get clear on your goals. I know this is one of those yeah dah, but I really want to listen to this. Can saying yes to this opportunity get me closer and faster toward my goal. So if you need an admin, can your abdomen get you closer
and faster toward your goal? Yeah, right? So if you are clear about your goal and you take several steps in
the right direction every day, eventually you will succeed. So decide what it is that you want. Write it down, review it constantly, and each day do something that
moves you toward your goals. This is not about staying
stuck on the elevator. Number two. Calculate your return on investment. This is where you ask yourself, if I could make back
my financial investment by two to four times over my lifetime, would it be a smart investment? What about 10 times? Sometimes people say, well you know, how can I get my money
back on this investment within like three months or a year. Look at the whole lifetime. You don’t look, you don’t go to college and say you know how can I make back. How much do we spend
for college these days? Like 250,000. How can I make back my
$250,000 University investment within the first year,
between I’m 21 and 22. That makes no sense. We make some investments
and we expect them to be paid back in 20 years. And we make some investments and say this needs to be paid back,
like return on investment in six months. No, but if it’s a two to four times or 10 times what I
invested, is it worthwhile? And if you can’t get a
return on your investment, then don’t do it. I do not do something where I
don’t get at least two times, at the minimum two times
a return on investment. Turn to the person and
say, next to you and say that’s smart, that’s smart. (audience laughing) Number three. Consider the alternative. (sneezes)
Bless you. When you’re stuck, when you’re waiting, ask yourself what happens
if I don’t say yes. Do I want to be in the
same place a year from now? Would I want to be in the
same situation in five years? It’s really that simple. Number four. Consult your intuition. I’m a spiritual person, and I do like business I like,
I’m in the material world. What is that? I am a spiritual person
in a material world. I bring my spiritual sense
in my business day to day. A lot of people make
their decisions from here. Yes, you want to be logical, but sometimes you can over logic yourself into making the wrong decision. So how I do it, and I hope this serves you is I ask myself if I silenced
my fears for a moment, and I decide to listen to my gut, my intuition tell me about what to do. What is my gut telling me? One way to do that is,
because when were making financial decisions is to take the money out of the equation. Write that down. Take the money out of the equation. Move it to the side. Because money has a way
of really messing up our decision-making process. Would you say? Yeah, so you take the money to the side, and then you ask yourself
on a scale of one to 10, 10 being yes, yes I want this. I need this. This would be good for me. And one being hell no,
this is not right for me. You move the money to the side. Scale of one to 10, where are you? Check in. The number will come up immediately. If it’s a seven or
above, the answer is yes. If it’s seven or below,
or if it’s six or below the answer is no. But this is about moving
the money to the side and really checking in. You can turn a seven into
an eight, eight into a nine, nine into a 10, but you
cannot turn a six into a 10. That’s my experience only. Is this helpful?
– Yes. – I use this for hiring. I use this for, when I talked to a client or prospective client. I need to check-in whether
I want that person. Whether it’s charging for something or anything in my business. I use the scale of one to 10 thing, but move the money to the side. Because, why, because you
can always find the money. The money is everywhere. Remember 50 ways. You could find the money. But checking in with your
intuition is everything, and then trust that because your intuition is actually source talking to you. This is ego. Deep breath in. I’m giving you like my hacks,
I hope this is good, yeah? This is helpful? Okay good, good, good. Number five. Trust your self. If I came from a place of
faith rather than fear, would I say yes or would I say no? This is an invitation to
let your faith be bigger than your fear. (deep breathing) I’ve made some pretty crazy
yes decisions in the past, because I said I do not
make my decisions from fear. I make them from faith.
