“In the long run, we shape our lives,
and we shape ourselves.
The process never ends until we die.
And the choices we make are ultimately
our own responsibility.”
Each day, we make hundreds of choices. We choose when to wake up, what to wear, what to eat, how to get to work and what to do when we get there. We choose who we’ll talk to, what we’ll say and how we’ll say it.
We choose love and trust or fear and worry. We choose whether to be optimistic or fatalistic, reflective or reactive, cooperative or combative, grateful or needy, compassionate or judgmental. We choose to burst out of the box and take risks or stay in our comfort zone and play it safe.
When it comes to our goals–like attracting ideal clients or getting healthy–we make choices that either bring us closer or take us farther away from what we say we want to achieve.
Most of us will celebrate our freedoms this weekend in recognition of Independence Day. I encourage you to celebrate your freedom to choose. Set an intention to make smart, conscious choices that support your success.
Next time you contemplate a choice, whether it’s responding to a demanding customer or managing your money, ask, “What would my higher self do?” That’s a powerful way to connect with the wisdom within you. Remember to take the time to wait for the answer.
What choices will you make?
