I DECIDE. Knowing and doing are two separate acts. Even if you have a good grasp of your gifts, are you putting in the necessary work to pursue your dreams? Will you be able to overcome whatever obstacles keep you from deciding to follow your IDEAL path? To be honest, some people choose not to live their IDEAL lives. They choose the traditional path. They choose the path that gets them the most money or the most prestige. The IDEAL process is not about fame, fortune, or convenience. It is about deciding to maximize the gifts and talents you have been given and living a life with very few regrets. Our life is about the choices we make, and no self-help book or process is going to get you to any place, except for the place that you choose to go. Your determination, your hard work, and a little wisdom will carry you far in life. You have to decide.
