Today's Coaching Moment - Made any good decisions lately?

Today's coaching moment is designed to help you make better decisions more of the time.

Continued from last week...

Everything that happens is a result of your decisions, and your decsions result from what you believe and what you think. Your current situation is a result of what you believe about God, yourself, your circumstances, AND what you believe you can accomplish with His help.

What you believe affects the way you think...and your thoughts affect the decisions you make...

Where are your beliefs and thoughts taking you?

Most Christians believe in biblical principles with their heads but don't follow through with appropriate action. Believing is just the first step, your belief needs to result in action, faith without works is dead.

Stepping out and acting on what you believe is faith in you step out and dare to be and become who God says you are, you will begin to walk in your destiny and fulfil your purpose.

When you're pursuing your life purpose it really helps if you can recognise God's voice. After all, it's God's purposes that you're here to fulfil. I'll talk more about that in future editions.

If you'd like help with hearing God now, I recommend you visit

You'll find lots of help to hear God, recognise His timing, and apply what you hear.

Everything starts with making a decision to do something.

Often, getting started is the hardest part. You made a decision to read this article, I'm honoured that you choose to spend valuable time with me. Time is something you can't get back, I promise not to squander it. My aim is to give you practical tips and tools that will help guide you to the lasting change you long for.

To make sure you get the most out of the 5 Minute Life Coach and seminars I arrange for you, I recommend you use a journal or notebook. And I urge you to get into the habit of recording your journey and answering any coaching questions there.

You might also want to invite a friend to journey with you, so you have someone to discuss things with and keep you accountable. Often friends and family help you to recognise things that you might overlook because you're too close to see.

Are you ready to embark on this journey?

If you are, let's agree together in prayer as you continue.

Father, I ask you to bless my fellow travellers, I may not know them, but You do. You know them inside out. You know their needs and longings, and the talents and gifts that you gave them.

Lord, empower them through your Holy Spirit to know You better, and to love themselves and the people around them as You love them.

Give them new insight and enable them to develop the radical super-natural lifestyle that you always intended for people who believe and follow You. Father God, draw them closer to you, open their eyes to see and their ears to hear.

Saturate them with your presence and clothe them in your power as they continue this journey with You. Shine your light brightly on their path and lead and guide them. In Jesus’ precious name. Amen.

Guidelines For Making Better Decisions More Of The Time

  1. Make sure you haven't already decided. Sometimes people go through the motions of making decisions when somewhere deep inside they've already decided.

    Have you really considered the alternatives or have you already made up your mind?

  2. Gather as much information as possible before deciding. Ask lots of questions first.

  3. Imagine the consequences of your decision. How will you feel in 1 year? 3 years? 10 years?

  4. Think about similar decisions you've made in the past.

    What happened then?

    If you made a similar decision and had regrets, where did that decision go wrong?

  5. Have you really considered all the alternatives? Brainstorm options and don't dismiss anything out of hand without serious consideration.

  6. Ask for help. Speak to people you trust and get a different perspective.

  7. What's the worst thing that could happen as a result? What might the decision cost you?

    Be cautious about making a decision that could have a particularly bad outcome.

  8. What can you learn from good decisions made by other people? What do they take into account that you dismiss?

  9. Do you really need to make a decision now?

    What's driving you to make a decision now if it isn't really necessary?

  10. Beware of getting obsessed with making the right decision. Don't let the need to make the right decision keep you from ever making a decision.

  11. Decide that you will make a decision one way or the other and give yourself a deadline.

  12. Make a'll soon know whether or not it's the 'right' decision for you.

You will make mistakes. Mistakes are part of growing and learning wisdom. Learn from your mistakes and move on
