All day, every day, you are interacting with the world around you. Other people, p,aces, things, ideas, you internal monologue, and so forth. Everything that happens to you, you have a choice in how yo respond. But,nits unlocking the power of choice in life’s most crucial moments that can truly make a difference between success and failure, passion or indifference, and optimism or pessimism.
Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.Victor Flankl
Most of the decisions we make daily are thoughtless and automatic. Our lives tend to become so habitualized that we stop consciously thinking about many of the choices that we face. Unfortunately, we become so used to this mindless way of making decisions that any of us miss out on opportunities because we fail to act.
So often, to often many of us choose to be in things such as an unfulfilled job, an unhappy relationship, where you may love the person, but you know it’s not the right thing for you. Or we may have trauma in our life. And instead of making the decision to face that trauma and do something about it, we choose to ignore it. Or it could be a drinking problem where you know, you could choose differently; but continue to stay on that path. And it could go on and on.
To progress in our lives, we need to become mindful of our decisions and unlocking the power of choice when it matters the most.
