7 Ways on How to Apply the Right Choices
These will help you implement the right choices. We consciously and unconsciously, choose what we see as reality every day. Choices give us the power and responsibility to choose how we respond to life. Life does not just happen. We can choose to create beauty in our world and express our gifts and talents for the benefit of other around us.
1. We have been given a Free will.
It’s not the circumstances that determine how your life will be, but it is how you respond to that particular situation- the choices you make at any given time.
We all have a free will. We don’t have to give the free hand to our impulses, fear and habits. We can take charge over a situation by making the right choice and also by choosing to react in a different way. We cannot do much about the situation, but we certainly can make a choice how all the details will affect our life. Complaining doesn’t bring us anywhere, so exercise your will and steer the situation in the right direction.
2. You must make a choice to take action.
Decisions are not made with words but with actions. Sometimes we don’t even realize that we have made a choice and decide to go into a certain direction without realizing it. So, when we write down our goals; we have to make a clear choice to follow up on those goals. This takes action. When you don’t plan, you plan to fail. Action is very, very important. Any action or inaction has consequences. Your willingness to accept these consequences, gives you the power and freedom to choose who you are, where you are and what you do. That is when life changes from an obligation to a blessed opportunity.
3. Make a choice to choose your path.
We are always influenced by forces from outside, but we are making the decision to resist or to give in. If you go for instant gratification, then will the consequences of your choices most likely guide you back at the place where you started. One choice could lead you to full of blessings in your life while the other leads you to a hard road with lots of tests and struggles. What you sow you will reap. You sow life, you will reap life.
4. Commit to it.
Unless you realize you have the power to say no, you can never really say yes. To your relationships. To your work. To your life. To anything. Only when you have sufficient self-worth to choose whether to end something of value to you can you fully commit to it. When you do not “have to” do something out of commitment, guilt or responsibility, but passionately choose to “want to” do something out of desire or happiness then you can fully commit to it.
5. Look further.
Realize that your choices affect the world around you – people that you haven’t even met. Realize now what choices you can make that will help people around you and even your community.
6. Making choices for others.
Be careful when you make choices for others. No doubt your intention is good, but assuming too much responsibility for others deprives them of the lessons that arise from the choices they have made. Those in pain need our compassion and support, but if we carry the weight for them, we rob them of their strength and self-respect.
7. Don’t change everything at once.
When you finally realize that you have the power to change your directions in any moment, you might see attractive alternatives to a lot of situations in your life. You may feel tempted to change your relationship, your career, or any area of your life that feels difficult or frustrating. Some of the choices you make may be appropriate or even long overdue, but the best choice often means taking responsibility for where you are right now and participating fully and intentionally.
