Wise or Foolish

Think of all the good decisions we would make if we could honestly answer this question: “Would this be wise or foolish?”

“Would it be WISE or FOOLISH to: Skip my workout?”
“Would it be WISE or FOOLISH to: Forgive my friend?”
“Would it be WISE or FOOLISH to: Eat that?”
“Would it be WISE or FOOLISH to: Buy that car?”
“Would it be WISE or FOOLISH to: Go to bed angry?”
  and the list goes on…

This one statement could change everything if you can make the time to stop and answer the question. Unfortunately many of us stay so busy and rushed we don’t STOP and actually THINK about what we are about to do. Once you are faced with the question that must be answered honestly, then you KNOW you are even more foolish if you still choose the foolish route.


1.) Take the time to weigh the facts

2.) Think about the possible repercussions

3.) Make MORE decisions based on WISDOM and less on feelings, temptations and spontaneous reactions.

4.) If you honestly can’t answer the question. Ask yourself this: “Will I be satisfied with this decision later or will I have regret?” 

5.) Forgive yourself for prior poor choices and don’t look back. Keep your eyes on the prize!
