H.A.L.T. What does it actually mean when making important decisions? Well in 1 word it means to stop whatever you are doing. but each letter can mean 4 words you should consider when making decisions that can affect your future. Never make important decisions when you’re Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired = HALT. Always leave room for clear thoughts, without overthinking. These 4 can cause you to make the wrong decision based on your own human need to eat, lack of emotional companionships, lack of proper rest, and anxiety or stress related anger caused by people and environments. Do you know what can destroy our ambitions, fortunes, relationships and eventually, our lives?
There are 6 Enemies you must conquer
- an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat. be afraid of (someone or something) as likely to be dangerous, painful, or threatening.
Indifference is a terrible disease because it allows you to drift along like wood on a beach. The problem with drifting is there isn’t any destination involved, planning and the outcome is bad. We can’t drift our way to the top of the peak. Ships need a Captain at the helm to carefully guide it in a proper direction or it will end up some derelict on a deserted beach.
The thief that steals many ambitions because of a persons inability to make the proper choice, use discernment or any choice at all. It steals our chances in life and robs people of their future and fills them with regret and often uses fear as a companion. It hinders boys from becoming Men and girls from becoming Women in their lives. “Stepping Up even though we know it’s difficult, time consuming and costly.” Most times it will require more than we actually want to give.
Healthy skepticism, okay, we just can’t believe everything. Just don’t let doubt take over. Many of us doubt the future, doubt relationships, doubt the government, doubt the journey and doubt opportunities. Worst of all, we doubt ourselves. Doubt will destroy your chances of success. It will empty both your bank accounts and your heart. Doubt is an enemy. Get rid of it with profound knowledge, courage and faith. Often having us seeing situations that aren’t truly there and hypothetical scenarios that don’t exist.
Let worry alarm you to actual dangers. It can be useful applied with general knowledge and actual facts. If we step off the curb in New York City and a bus is coming, you have to worry. If you fall on the train tracks and hear the train coming and see a bright light…, it’s not heaven, okay? Practice safety in dangerous situations. Taking precautions is not worrying.
Worrying steals the joy out of living and fills it with regret, “Only if I, What if…” It’s more like beating yourself up over nothing at all. But you can’t let worry loose like a rabid dog that drives you into a small corner. We’ve got to drive “worry” into a small corner. Whatever is out to get you, you’ve got to get it. Whatever is pushing on you, you’ve got to push back.
Over-caution is the timid approach to life. Timidity is not a virtue (unlike humility); in fact, it can be an illness. If we let it go, it’ll conquer us. If we’re timid, we won’t get promoted, we won’t advance and grow and become powerful. We have to be courageous in our lives and in our pursuit of the things we want and the people we want to become. Build confidence inside and out by accomplishing goals both minor and major. The major key to a better future is you. Lock your mind on this. “How do you develop an above-average income? Become an above-average person.” Work on you. Develop an above-average handshake, look, interest in others, books…whatever. To have more, become more.
