Did you know that you create your life one choice at a time?
We often have the idea that it is the big life choices and when our circumstances change that our life gets different. While these contribute, it is also who we choose to be and what we do in day to day life that creates our future. Something that locks people up from choosing is the worry and fear that they will make a wrong choice. Just because you make a choice doesn’t mean you can’t change your mind and choose again. It id often easier than you think!
As an example, I have been to restaurants and eaten delicious food that has changed my body, my financial situation, my friend circle and eventually that can lead to a shift in the way we see ourselves and life. Something as small as deciding to go to a social event, starting a ten percent account, choosing happiness or buying a silver spoon can change more things than you can imagine.
Here are my top tools for creating your life from choice.
Live in 10 second increments.
If you choose something every 10 seconds, it makes you realise how often you really do choose. It doesn’t have to be a big choice. You could choose to continue sitting down. You could choose to forgive someone. You could choose the same thing 100 times in a row, but you have to realise that once a choice is made it is not set in stone. You continue to choose it!
If I choose this, what will my life be like in 5-10 years?
Sometimes little choices unlock big choices. If you decide to sleep in, you may bump into someone that you may not have crossed paths with otherwise. If you decide not to go to a certain restaurant, you may not end up getting sick off someone or something there. This is a great question to ask to get a gut feeling of how something may create your life.
At the end of the day, just choose! Don’t let fear of a wrong choice stop you from creating your life. You can always choose again.
