"Our grand business is not to see what lies dimly at a distance but what lies clearly ahead." Carlye

Napoleon Hill in is classic work, "think and Grow Rich, said that 98% of people are in jobs through their indecision. These people never made a decision of what to do with their lives.

The word, decide , in Latin means "to cut off from the alternatives." Decision sets apart performers. In order to be financially free, we have to decide what to "cut off." First, we must decide to cut off credit cards, student loans and other financial forms of bondage. We need to cut off our cultures opinions and our own self-doubts.

Our current culture does nothing to clarify our lives but instead clutters our mind with "data smog". We all need an information diet because on average we take in 3,000 messages a day!

Decision leads to transformation! We seek security and freedom and sometimes we confuse the two. Eisenhower said - "The history of free men is never really written by chance but by choice, their choice!" We all have choice.
