The first thing you need to have is a good "BACKBONE"

In this fast changing world, fast changing ideology - mere survival is no more audacious, but excelling is. The most important thing we need to have is a strong backbone, one that will help us take wise decisions.
   We cannot believe the rate at which things around us keep changing. The rate of changes has increased so steadfastly, that things we read in science fictions are becoming reality now.
   For a glimpse of the changes taking place, lets see the no of car manufactures in our market, 10 years back we knew every model, 20 years back we kept count of the people around who actually owned cars. It is the case with every buy-able thing.
   Things are changing so alarmingly that we cannot keep track of the information. The one thing that is going to really matter in the scenario is a good decision.
    The great thing about a decision is that, it is going to mould your future; the bad thing is that you need to have a strong backbone to take one.
   Many time, people prolong their decision because of their lack of confidence, scepticism or dilemma. But the reality is that what keep them cynic is because they don’t have a good backbone.
   Now how much can you price a good decision, I will say - its weight in gold. Because there are two things that are happening when you take a quick decision

  1. You have the early bird to carve out the fortune and the good benefits.
  2. If you end up loosing, you can quickly realize and do the needful.

Most often people keep beating around the bush waiting for some external force to make their decision. They end up leading compromising lives.
  Lets all accept, all decisions are one in which money is involved - you either make or loose. But the stronger your decision, the weaker the hammering.
    I have a friend of mine whom i know is the worst guy to make a decision. When we go out to shop, he says he will take 3-5 shirts, takes 1 hour in selecting it, takes it all over the counter and still waits for the cashier to ask whether he needs it. And after all the process ends up not buying.
   Few months back, we had some idea to change apartments. This friend was interested to join us. Since money matter was involved, we rechecked his decision to move with us. After all the procedures to shift to the new location, this guy said he is not interested.
   And two months back, he said he is ready to join me in my distribution business. After the legal procedures and like, I asked him to submit his ID proof within 10 days to keep his account alive. 60 days have passed; poor this guy has not even found 10 minutes to fax his id.
   Being careless and being without backbone are two different things. The value of all your decisions are going to cost like gold now because technology is evolving fast, money transactions are happening 1000 times faster than a decade and people are getting richer at the rate never before.
   Just like taking the decision requires backbone, living it also does. There are some basics rich do that the poor and mediocre fear to do – one of them is to have the backbone to make things happen.
  Now go sign that cheque, sell that villa, trade that share or start a new venture, but live it up to your decision – your life will never be the same again !!!
