Inner Growth Thought of the Day: There’s Always A Choice
There’s always a choice you make when faced with anything life brings your way, and behind each choice there’s a whole world of discovery to the inner depths of you.
On an inner growth journey, exploring the choices you make gets you to uncover what’s beneath the surface. If there are any hidden fears or doubts as the reason behind your choice or why one choice is preferred to another, as well as how that choice affects your potential in life, and the difference between heart-felt choices and non-heart-felt ones.
The importance of turning within during times of choosing to understand all the influential factors and opt to look beyond the limits set by you and/or the external gets you to always make a choice that pursues your highest potential.
Here are some ways to use an inner growth mindset and approach to your choices.
- Make it a habit to notice how you feel about the choice you’re deciding to make in any situation. List one to three words that describe those feelings and express in one sentence what that feeling to you says about the choice.
- Once a year review the feelings you had about the choices you made and notice how many were in tune with you (heart-felt) and how many weren’t. Also, notice the differences between the two lists, in the outcomes and lessons brought about by the choices.
- When you tell yourself you don’t have a choice regarding something, push yourself to go beyond your limits and ask why you feel cornered and what flexibility can you add to the situation to find the ideal choice for what you’re dealing with (that choice can include letting go of an idea or project or relationship, for example, or choosing a completely different route to what you initially envisioned, and so on).
