We are living in a world that is stressed beyond measure. We are indulging in worry, confusion and overwhelm. And it's not because we don't know what to do with the 24 hours we've been given each day. It's because no one has even told us that we can choose to figure everything out in a very easy and effortless way.
By deciding what to think. Yep-now someone can move on to the next world problem because I just solved this one for you. Well maybe not quite yet. Let me explain a few things.
Everything is optional. You don't have to do anything.
There are no right or wrong decisions.
The more decisions you make consciously, the better.
Everything is optional. And once you learn that you have a choice in making decisions, you have all of your power back. No one else can tell you what to do or how to think. They may "think" that they know what's best for you but the choice is really all yours.
You don't have to continue to make the same decisions you made in the past. You have 100% permission to change anything you want in your life. Your relationships, your career, your habits. You can change anything. There are no right or wrong decisions. If you haven't made a decision you have decided not to make a decision. Which as you can see is a decision to no do anything. Indecision keeps you stuck. So try to make the best decision and run with it. You can always decide on something else.
If the decisions you are currently making for yourself are not working for you, just ask yourself would you choose to decide that again? If it isn't working decide to change how you will show up for yourself.
If you think this thought "What if the decision I make is wrong and causes me more pain?" Before you make the decision just write down the pros and cons of that decision. Ask yourself if you are making this decision because of what others will think of you? Are you making this decision because you are avoiding feeling a feeling? Are you living from a place of abundance or scarcity? Making a decision from a place of abundance will help you to make cleaner decisions based off of having your own back and not from a place of fear or anxiety.
Re-decide your life on purpose. And keep on deciding what is right or wrong for you on a continual basis is what makes your life keep evolving.
When I decided to go to Life Coach School at the age of 51 years old I had a lot of thought drama around if I was making a good decision or not. I was stressed with the thoughts of what if I'm no good at coaching? What if I waste the money that I'm investing in the school? What If I spend the money and the time and I decide I don't like it? What will my husband say? What will my friends think. All of this drama wasn't helping me to solve for the real decision I wanted to make. I wanted to become a life coach. The other thoughts I had seems so important but they weren't serving me. I decided that If I was someone who can buy a car and then trade it in a year later because it wasn't the best fit for my family I was also someone who could spend money and decide that It was not something I was going to waste if I decided later that it wasn't a good fit. I decided that it didn't matter what other people thought, what mattered was what I wanted. I started to work on deciding that I was going to be an incredible life coach, that the money I was spending on certification was worth every penny and that I was someone who can do new things at 51 years old.
Every decision I have made is one I own 100% power in. I do not regret anything. I don't regret trying somethings and then deciding that they just weren't for me. I don't regret trying a new thing that I have to work hard for, that I may need to practice over and over again until I get it right. When I clean up my own thinking I am capable of making decisions that serve me and I avoid the mind drama of indecision.
