Tuesday Thoughts And Right or Wrong
Hi Friends, Did you make a decision last week? I trust I inspired you to take action, even on a small scale.
"Good decisions come from experience. Experience comes from making bad decisions." Mark Twain This is the quote I used last week. Can I get an Amen from you? It is the truth, isn't it? And here we are scared to make decisions. What are we afraid of? That it's the wrong choice? That we will be forever doomed? That we will negatively influence people? That God/universe won't bless us? You know, we are not that powerful. It's just us humans, making decisions, and living the human experience. As Mark Twain so wisely said: Experience comes from bad decisions. And good decisions will result from that experience. It's both. We need both. Don't beat yourself up when you think you made the wrong choice. Definitely don't beat yourself up BEFORE you make a choice. If you look at the picture with the fork in the road, you wonder, which path should I take? Is there a wrong path? Either one will have its ups and downs, its hardships and blessings. And who said you can't turn around? Often we pick up an experience along the way that we needed for our future. We don't see that at the moment, but later on we know it helped shape us into who we needed to become. So is there a wrong or right turn? I am not talking about immoral or illegal actions here. But the decisions that we make on a daily basis; on a monthly and yearly basis. For example, two of my friends relocated to a different state then where they had lived for decades before. And they both just came back from a visit to their old home. That was a decision. The moving away. The visiting. I remember when I was 19 years old and a nanny here in the states. I asked my host mom if there was one specific person you are supposed to marry? She had a very wise answer, that there are probably quite a few we could have a future with and I just remember it wasn't an all or nothing answer. It wasn't all black and white. What if we approached our next decision with a broader view? Without the black and white ? Without the right or wrong? What if we had the guts to make a decision, then another one, and another? Instead of being stuck in indecision? Being stuck in indecision takes a lot of energy. Sometimes you feel freer and lighter just having made a decision. It clears things up. Up north, in the fall, we used to visit hay-mazes. It can be quite disorienting being in one. And the way out? The way out is to choose a path, and reroute and keep going until you finally see the exit. Go ahead now, make that decision. It's not going to wreck your life and the world won't stop turning. I give myself permission to move forward with a decision. This is an affirmation you can use starting now. It might just help you wiggle loose a little. And good old Jim Rohn said the following:
You cannot make progress without making decisions.
Jim Rohn If you are in indecision, you should know that I offer a free discovery call where you share what is going on, and I mostly listen. As a coach I ask you questions to help you move forward.
