How to Think for Yourself
Do you consider yourself to be a leader or a follower? If you consider yourself to be follower you need to
re-evaluate what you want from life. By choosing to be a follower you are really just asking to fail.
You see by blindly following another person you are automatically putting yourself second and you are entrusting
that person with your life.
Humans are naturally selfish and tend to think about themselves first, so now you have put your trust in the
hands of someone who is working to gain something for themselves, not for you.
So, what do you think will happen if something goes wrong? You will be the one to take the hit, the fall, or end
up with nothing.
That is why it is essential for you to think for yourself. And that is what this personal development article is all about, how to think for
The first step is to love yourself, because you are capable. People hand over the reins to their lives because
they don’t believe they can do it on their own. They believe they are not smart enough or good enough to be in
control of their own lives.
So, they figure someone else is smarter and knows more than they do. You need to realize that everyone has the
same ability to make the right decisions and that everyone at one time or another has made the wrong decision. It
is just part of life to make right and decisions and the only way to get better at making the right decision is to
start making them.
The next step is to realize knowledge is power. Want to know the secret to making good decisions? The answer is,
do your homework. You can find out everything you need to know to make a good decision by reading, researching, or
going online and learning.
Once you have the facts, you can apply them to your situation and make a decision based on the information you
found. Now, does that mean that every time you do that you will make the correct decision? No, but it will up the
odds on getting it right.
The final step is to fight for yourself. No one is going to put you first, you have to put yourself first, and
the best way to that is to build your self-confidence. Start by making smaller decisions, and show yourself that
you can make the right decisions for yourself. Then move up, by building up to more difficult decisions.
And understand that one wrong decision is not the end of the world. The world will not come crashing to an end.
That is the great part we can make mistakes, get back up and get it right the next time.
In order to think for yourself you have to love yourself enough to want to make decisions, next you have to do
your homework so you have the proper information to make a good decision, and finally, build your self-confidence so
you can fight for your right to make decisions.
