Have you ever thought about how powerful the simple act of choosing can be? Think about it for a minute. When we were children, our parents, teachers and elders made decisions for us. Can you remember the first time you were given the responsibility to actually decide on something significant all by yourself? Maybe it was picking what you wanted to eat off of a menu. Maybe it was choosing which kitty you wanted from the litter. Maybe it was deciding (all by yourself) what you wanted to wear for picture day at school. From the time we are children and begin making our own decisions, we feel the “power” that owning a decision can have.
Now, let’s come back to our adult world and think about how we feel regarding decision-making. Some of us may find it burdensome — too many things to have to figure out — while others may relish it.
From a Western cultural perspective, there is one time, however, that 99.999 percent of us want to have control over decision-making and that’s when we are deciding how to live our own lives. We don’t want, for example, our parents to tell us who our significant other should be; or where to live; or what car to buy; or how to raise our children. We want to use our own feelings of “what’s right for me” and decide for ourselves how to live our life.
Are you choosing to live the life YOU truly desire? If you long for a deep and meaningful relationship, are you choosing to find it? Are you choosing to spend each day doing what you love most? Are you choosing to live each and every day being the person you were meant to be? If not, why not?
Empower yourself to answer three final questions:
- What do you truly desire in your life?
- Why do you want it?
- How will it make you feel when you have it (i.e., how will it impact your life)?
Knowing what you want and why you want it are the most critical questions in determining the life you wish to create. Focusing on how living this life will make you feel starts the wheels in motion.
If you aren’t living the life you truly desire, then join me on Saturday, June 18th for an enriching and motivating seminar, Yes, you can! Overcoming obstacles to create the life you desire. Leah Moretz and I will facilitate you through a thought-provoking session that will help you identify, not only what you desire but why you haven’t already achieved it. More importantly, we’ll teach you how to get there and by the time you leave you will have created your individualized strategic action plan to guarantee results.
To learn more, listen to Leah and I give you the “inside scoop” in our nine-minute podcast.
