We all have this super power. We forget it sometimes all too easily and then finding it again hidden under all the stressors of life is made even more challenging.
Everyone has the power to choose. What to wear today, which way to go to work, what to have for lunch etc. We also have the power to choose what kind of life we want, what career we would like and how we respond to what life sends our way.
Not choosing is also a choice. If you let “life” or “destiny” make the choice for you then how empowered to do you feel? my guess is, not very empowered at all. You’ll start to feel like life is just happening to you and that you’re not actually living it.
So practice with the “small” stuff.
What do you want to do this weekend? Choose something.
(note: “I don’t know, whatever” = choosing to do nothing).
Where do you want to go for dinner Friday night? Choose a restaurant.
What do you want to do while you’re on holiday? Choose an activity.
And when you’re ready, start looking at some bigger items.
What do you want to be when you grow up? Choose a path that you want.
and How do you want to get on that path? How you get there is completely up to you.
(note I was in my very late twenties when I chose what I wanted to be when I grew up – it is never too late)
Choose to let life throw you around and maybe eventually get to where you want to be or Choose to make it happen.
