What do you choose?

Throughout my years of studying personal and professional development many teachers and coaches have taught me that in every situation we always have a choice.   I really thought that I understood what that meant.  As a student of Real Love I now understand that almost every minute of my life is about choice.  The choices I make either render me powerful or powerless.

Our attitudes, habits and beliefs greatly affect our choices.  When we pause in the moment to ask ourselves, will this choice make me happy, we are allowing ourselves the opportunity to feel our power.  If your decision is based on pleasing someone else or doing something you really don’t want to be doing, then you are going to feel powerless.

Even in situations where we have little ability to choose, we can act differently.  We can ask ourselves what is my attitude about the situation.  If it’s negative and critical, then we need to ask what are the reasons we are feeling this way.  Once we realize we have a choice to see the people involved in a different way we can get through the situation more positively.

Being asked to stay late and work usually brings up some negativity.  If you can tell yourself that it might bring a bonus at the end of the year or higher rating on your performance review, then you are going to see the situation differently and will feel powerful energy project from you.  Making this type of change is difficult.  If you keep working on choices to be happy, you’ll be amazed at how different your life will become.
