We’re continually faced with choices, and life being what it is, there will naturally be times when those choices are harder than we’d like to face.
And when that time comes, many will simply give in to their emotions, let the decision be made for them by circumstances, and then declare that they had “no choice”.
But there’s a problem with that strategy. If you decide that you have “no choice”, you will stop looking for them. And when you stop looking, for all intents & purposes your choices in life will simply cease to exist.
Well, now you’re in the unenviable position of having made yourself a victim of your own self-fulfilling prophecy. Not good.
Look, the reality is that sometimes there is no really good choice, just a hard one. Take comfort in the fact that our choices reveal to us what we’re really made of. So if you want to live a life that you’re proud of…..well….just suck it up, buttercup.
Take a stand against fear & doubt, make your choices as intelligently & thoughtfully as you can at the time, and stand by them responsibly. And if one doesn’t work out so well, don’t worry, there’s always another one just around the corner for you to do better with.
