Decide to Decide

So… What exactly does this saying actually mean?

I have heard people say how they decided to decide, they decided to commit, they decided to succeed, they decided to change their mindset or they decided to achieve. I never really knew what this meant before until now.

Recently I have been having a range of epiphanies and light bulb moments; but they have all been in the same direction, reminding me of the same thing and bringing up the same feelings. As some of you know, I am an achiever, a doer and a believer. I believe that when you put your mind to something you can achieve it, if it’s half-heartedly then you won’t. However, that is what I’ve been doing and I am ashamed of myself and disappointed in myself for allowing it to happen. I think the first step for me was realising that I wasn’t doing something to my full potential and not giving it my all, which is very unlike me. As soon as I realised this, I started having the epiphanies.


This leads me onto the epiphany moments, which consisted of a range of quotes and images including:

Always remember that YOU have the control to make the right choices to move your life forwards – Do you not leave that choice in the hands of anyone else. Decide you are worth it and have a clear vision where you would like the year ahead to take you and dream big.

In life you must make a choice to take a chance, or your life will not change.

Why take a decade to make a six month journey? A year to do something that takes a month?

This year will be just like last years unless YOU change.
The good news… You can change any time you choose.

Eric Worre

When you know you are destined for Greatness



All of these and more, have lead me to realise that my life and my journey will only change if I decide to do it. And that’s when…


I decided to give me all into something that I knew I could achieve.

I decided to not listen to the negative people or the negative voices.

I decided that I was ready to make a change and it was my time.

I decided to allow myself to be happy, to be free and to be great.

I decided to make Forever work for me.

But not only that, I decided that I will ALWAYS give my all in everything I do, I will never settle for second best and I will enjoy every step of the way. Have you decided to decide?

Until next time,

Alexandrya-Carmen Mbu.
