Don't Let Someone Else Make Your Decisions For You

Self Improvement,Ezine,Ezine Sites
We’ve all heard this saying: There are two kinds of people in the world; leaders and followers. Its human nature to play follow the leader. Most of us are inclined to take instruction from the one who is stronger or smarter or better looking. Since the majority of us are followers, we are attracted to those who display these attributes. Humans are taught by those in power to rely their leader’s strength, not realizing that they have enough power of their own. Misguided leaders seek to keep their flock uninformed and therefore left to humbly accept his empty promises. It’s really a false sense of power, since the foolish leader has no real power. Society unwittingly gave it him.

When you choose to blindly follow another person, you are allowing that person to make your decisions on your behalf. Do not give up that power without first knowing what you are giving up. What do you have to lose by following this so called leader? Does he or she have your best interests in mind, or does he or she have a personal agenda? An independent thinking and strong minded person will have the good sense to question his or her leader to uncover ulterior motives.

Again, by letting someone else make your decisions for you, you are giving up your personal power. This makes you nothing less than a crash test dummy. This leader, whether he or she is a personal friend, or an elected governmental official, owns you. He or she decides where you will go, who you will speak to, what you will read, and when you will do these things. This is why socialism does not work. Socialism forces a person depends on his government for his major needs, like food, shelter, medical care, job security, and retirement options. Socialism is a very dangerous economic doctorine for those participating in it. It takes control away from the people and puts it into the hands of the political leaders. This puts society in a precarious position if the polictical masterminds decide to remove public benefits. This would unleash a world of trouble. Many of you probably find this statement obvious. That’s because it is commonsense. Socialism cannot sustain itself in the long run. However this is not an article supporting the elimination of socialism. It’s about retaining our personal power by taking charge of our lives.

Giving control of your life to someone would seem unnatural, yet so many of us are ready and willing to do so. We like to have someone take care of us. By keeping our power, we open up a world of possiblities, that prior to this had been hidden from from our eyes. Being responsible for what we do and experience is essential for personal growth. We cannot fully experience life in all its slendor if we make someone else manager of our personal affairs. That is not living. It is a lack of interest in the direction one’s life takes. Personal growth is essential in every life. As humans we achieve our greatest measure of growth by being responsible for our own actions. Taking risks from time to time is part of the human adventure. It is important for humans to overcome obstables and challenges without having someone doing for us. When we allow someone else to remove our challenges it weakens us. Soon we become a shell of the person we were meant to become. No one likes to face any amount of discomfort, but pain is part of the human condition. Humans are meant to face their hardships and triumph over them even when the odds are against it.
