Who you are now and who you will be is determined by the decisions you make. One out of every one person will make decisions. When you have to make a decision and don't, that is in itself a decision.

So the question is, what kind of decision-maker are you going to be? To help keep you from sabotaging your future, here are five decisions not to make.
  1. Disobey your parents. God has placed your parents in your life to help guide you.
  2. Make quick decisions. Before making a decision, take time to think it over.
  3. Develop wrong relationships. The people you spend time with probably have the most influence on the decisions you make.
  4. Wait for your big break. You must get off the couch and pursue your God-given destiny.
  5. Give up. Both winners and losers face challenges, but winners don't quit.
