Two types of decisions

Fear based decisions
We make those out of insecurity. Out of a feeling of scarcity.
This is how the FOMO works.
  • "4 people are viewing this booking offer right now."
  • "There are ONLY 3 items left in stock."
You better push the boat out.
This makes people behave frantically and give the control away.
Growth based decisions
We feel the confidence in our body while making those decisions. They are a result of compound interest.
  • Something you put time your precious time on.
  • Something would help you to answer simple questions.
  • Something will change your life.
A growth-based decision becomes the story of your life later. A fear-based decision turns into regret.
