The ability to make decisions is one of the key characteristics of a successful person. However, there are many people who have enormous difficulty of having to make decisions. They reach the point of preferring others to make their decisions for them or that life take its course and what will be, will be. The problem with this passive attitude is that their lives will be at the mercy of the criterion of other people and circumstances that surround them. On the other hand, to be a successful person must learn to have a proactive attitude and know to measure the risks inherent in every decision. We must not ignore the importance of knowing how to make decisions in life, because the choices we make will determine the direction that will have our lives. How can we help our children to make the right decisions? It is simple.

We have to stop taking them for them, provided this is possible according to their age and maturity. We must let them be wrong within a preset limit of safety. The worst thing we can do as parents is sobreprotegerlos and do everything for them to not suffer. Unfortunately the mistakes and own experience are the best teachers and we must help them to learn from them. Here are three key aspects that should teach their children to help them make informed decisions in life: 1.-every decision we make has a consequence that we must take, good or bad. Explain to their children the possible consequences their decisions will be and then let them make their decisions. Along with this the not rebuked for their mistakes.

They have to be able to make mistakes to learn. Each time that their children make a mistake, talk it over with them and help them to look for how to avoid this mistake in the future. Do not condemn them, remember that it is a process of learning for real life. If you condemn their children whenever they make a mistake, they will become adults who never will take important decisions in their lives for fear of making mistakes. Winston Churchill said that the success is to go in another a failure without losing enthusiasm. In the same way we must teach our children that failures are only steps toward success. Allowing your children to make small mistakes when they are still young, so will be better prepared when it comes to having to make most important decisions in the future. 2. All the decisions that we take in life fall into two categories: A.-Morales B-financial this forces us to set priorities in our lives. Give their children a solid foundation of values and life principles which will guide you to the time of having to make decisions. Simply do not have the knowledge required to make accurate decisions in life. We need wisdom, which is the ability to apply that knowledge correctly. An infallible source of wisdom for life is the bestseller of all centuries, the Bible. Read a chapter from the book of proverbs along with their children all day 3.-our most important decisions are not between a good and a bad option. Most of the difficult decisions that we have to face in life are between something good, something better and something optimal. It is usually easy to recognize a bad option. However, most of the time have to leave the good thing to make it excellent. And again we will need wisdom to be able to distinguish between the one and the other.
