Why do some people consistently make good decisions – ones that drive them toward more and more success – while others seem to constantly derail themselves instead?

Your decisions lead to your destiny. You can make good decisions or bad decisions. These decisions are very often based on your mindset. Recognizing the power of your mindset is essential to reaching your destiny.

Your mindset includes your goals, values, beliefs , and mode of work. It provides the framework for how you think, how you behave, and why you make decisions. Understanding your mindset puts you in control of your life.
