IF YOU DON’T MAKE YOUR OWN DECISIONS, SOMEONE ELSE WILL!
I read this story and I thought to share it with you dear friend:
When he was a boy, fortieth (40) US president Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) went to a shoemaker for a pair of new shoes. The man asked young Ronald, “Do you want square toes or round toes?” Unable to decide, Reagan didn’t answer, so the man gave him a few days to think it over. Several days later the shoemaker saw Reagan on the street and asked him again what kind of toes he wanted on his shoes. Ronald still couldn’t decide, so the man replied, “Well, come by in a couple of days. Your shoes will be ready.” When the future president did so, he found one square-toed and one round-toed shoe!
“This will teach you to never let people make decisions for you,” the cobbler said to his indecisive customer.
“I learned right there and then,” Reagan said later. “If you don’t make your own decisions, someone else will.”
Did you get the lesson? Have a great day. YOU WILL SUCCEED!
